Sorry in advance... I don't know if this is a BluRay player issue, a receiver issue, or a LCD TV issue (and fixes), so I am posting in all three. If this is a violation mods, let me know and I will delete from the incorrect boards. Plus this is a long post (sorry in advance) but I am hoping being complete will help me resolve my problem and better understand the solutions. I am listing off all of my current connections and I would sure appreciate someone telling me if I have any incorrect connections, or any setting changes I may need to make (on which devices). If I need to provide any other info please let me know.
PROBLEM: When I try to play BluRays I get a "No HDMI3 Cable Connected" error message" Suggests checking cables. I know I have the BR player connected to HDMI3. More details below.
I have a Samsung UN46F6300 LCD, a Denon x1000 receiver, a Sony S5100 BluRay player, and a Scientific Atlantic 8300HD Explorer cable STB. Since the STB does not appear to be CEC compliant, I have turned off CEC/ARC on the Samsung and the Denon, and have installed an optical cable from the TV (Digital Audio Out (optical) to the receiver (TV/Optical Input).
- HDMI to receiver (HDMI CBL/SAT)
- Antenna In to the wall (calble outlet)
- Antenna Out to the TV
- On the back of the TV I have HDMI2 (ARC) to the receiver (HDMI OUT ARC).
- As mentioned before, I also have the Digital Audio Out (optical) to the receiver (TV/Optical).
- I also have the cable antenna in between the TV and the STB.
BluRay player connections:
- HDMI to receiver (HDMI3 Bluray)
The back panel of the S5100 only has one HDMI so I am certain I have that one correct.
The back panel of the Denon receiver has HDMI inputs for 1. CBL/SAT, 2. DVD, 3. BluRay, 4.GAME, and 5. Media Player. Plus the HDMI Out (ARC). And from above, I am using HDMI BluRay to the S5100 and HDMI Out to the F6300.
The back panel of the F6300 has HDMI1 for STB, HDMI2 for ARC, HDMI3 (unnamed), and HDMI4 (for DVI). The only HDMI I am currently using is I am using HDMI2 (ARC) to the receiver.
Again, any corrections to my connections, or any other suggestions on fixes would be much appreciated.
