I am trying to get my PC to connect to my Yamaha 867. I think I am having handshake issues...not sure about whether I should try EDID overrides.
From my video card (tried both a GeForce 210 and a Radeon 5450) HDMI out, I use a monoprice cable into the HDMI #3 port (also tried all the other HDMI ports) on the 867. From the HDMI out of the 867, I use a monoprice cable to the Sony LCD. Direct from CPU to Sony LCD via HDMI cable works fine.
Once I switch to HDMI #3 on the 867 I get a flashing HDMI logo on the front display of the 867. If I go into onscreen menu, info, video...I get signal info that flashes between nothing and 460p, 60hz. If I unplug the cables the 867 says 460p, 60hz (I guess this is the default for no signal). Eventually, the 867 will report an "unrecognizable signal" error on the TV.
When the video card is plugged into the 867, it won't even recognize the AVR or the TV - meaning I don't have the option of altering the display preferences in the driver software because it doesn't show up. If I plug the video card direct into the TV, it recognizes the TV and I can setup the video to display on the TV.
On the few occasions that I got it to work, the video card will recognize the Sony TV. The video card never sees the AVR as a display option.
I've tried different HDMI ports on all three components, different video cards, different cables, and all kinds of BIOS and AVR settings. I am stumped, but I think I have it narrowed to an issue with the AVR not being able to read the signal from the PC.
The one last thing I have to try is swapping out the HDMI cable that goes from the AVR to the TV. However, this is an HDMI 1.3 cable, so it should work.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
