I just bought a Pioneer SC-1222-K. When I tried to run my Cable TV (Comcast) through my receiver, I get an intermittent signal and a snowy picture. The audio is fine.

My current setup is as follows:

1. Cable set top box to the receiver via HDMI cable
2. Receiver via HDMI to an HDMI extender/Dual CAT5
3. Dual CAT5/HDMI extender via HDMI to the TV projector

I tried connecting the cable set top box via HDMI to the HDMI Extender/CAT 5 connection to the TV projector and it works fine. My blu ray player through my receiver to the projector also works fine.

I also tried several other HDMI cables and I still get snow. I've also used 2 different set top boxes with the same results - the set top boxes are pretty old models though.

I realize that I could connect the cable set top box to the projector via the method described above and use an optical cable for audio, but it's a suboptimal solution.

Any ideas on a fix would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

By the way, I'm also trying to set up my Zone 2 speakers to speakers in another room. I can get the Zone 1 audio to feed to these locations. Any tips on how to get another audio source to play in Zone 2? I have the Sonos Connect as my second audio source.
