Having a strange issue...
Got the unit last week and hooked it up with my DISH Hopper plugged into HDMI 1. Hooked up the HDMI output to the HDMI 4 on my new Samsung 8550 4K TV. HDMI 4 on the TV is the ARC Port. When I watch movies on the TV the audio plays out via AV4 on the V675. It all works great... well it all worked great.
Last night I wanted to watch Guardians of the Galaxy in 3D, so first I tried hooking up a Playstation 4 to the HDMI 2 port on the v675. The Playstation would not show on the screen. Now would audio play from it. I hooked it up to the TV directly and it worked fine.
I wasn't happy with the PS4, so I went down stairs and got my Sony BDP-S507 Blu Ray player, hooked it up to the HDMI 2 on the v675 and the video flashed on and off on the TV. I hooked it up directly to the TV and it works fine. I tried it on all the other HDMI inputs on the v675 and same thing happened. Hooked it back up to the TV directly and it worked fine. Watched the movie (which had some of the best 3D I have seen in a movie!) and went to bed thinking that it was an issue with Sony and Samsung...
Got up today and tried figuring it out... hooked up both devices and no go... tried a number of different HDMI cables and still the problem remained. Again assumed it was a Sony / Samsung issue.
I then hooked up a DIRECTV HR 24 to HDMI 2 on the v675 and it was working good on DIY Network, however changed it to HBO and it started blinking again. Picture and sound would go black for a second then come back on for a few seconds, then off again. The display on the front of the v675 kept going from dolby digital then to straight then dolby digital (when pic was on) and kept on going on and off.
Plugged the DIRECTV receiver into the Samsung 8550 direct and no problem with it. Tried it back in the v675 and it was blinking on and off. Now I knew this wasn't a sony / samsung issue.
I went and got my Apple TV (Latest Generation model) and hooked it up to the v675. Was good for a few minutes then it started blinking too... I went and got a 50 inch plasma from my son's bedroom and plugged the v675 into it, and again it showed the same problem.
Now my DISH Hopper was hooked to HDMI 1 and has been working fine since I got it. Tried the DISH Hopper on all the HDMI ports on the v675 and no problems with it. Used the HDMI cable the DISH hopper was using with the other devices.. and blinking...
Anyone have any ideas?
I am running the latest Firmware on it 1.60.
