Im stuck in HDCP Hell...any last advice?
My AVR-E400 is less than a year old. It worked perfectly fine up until recently. I have for a few days now searched high and low and have done a tremendous amount of troublshooting resulting in being damn sure the problem lies with the Denon AVR and not the mutlitude of HDMI cables used, nor the various input devices, nor the two TVs...I am just wondering if Denon can "fix" this...
First symptoms were "HDCP required"error messages from my AppleTV. Thensoon after no output devices (BluRay, HD Cable Box, XBOX, AppleTV) would sendan A/V signal to the TV (Panasonic Plasma). ALL of these devices work perfectly when routed directly to the TV with thecurrent, new, modern "smart" high speed HDMI cables as well as olderunknown HDMI cables I have lying around.
I have tried to "reset" the HDCP handshake bydisconnecting everything, powering everything down, unhooking all cables (and swapping ends in some cases) and then restarting inevery possible combination of sequence order. Nothing works. No a/v signalmakes it through the Denon HDMI "switching" (HDMI monitor out toTV). I have also tried all TV HDMI inputs(3). Every one works perfectly with alloutput devices when wired directly. Noneof them work at all when wired through the Denon AVR e-400. I have taken the Apple TV and swapped it withanother system from another room. Itworked fine on the other TV, and the one that was on that other TV worked finedirectly connected to the system in question, but did not work when wiredthrough the Denon avr. I have updated firmware although I no longer get onscreen display for the Denon so I think I updated firmware there hard to tell with the device display.
I have read tons of posts and tons of advice - I dont recall seeing anyone having to resort to official service.
If there is something I havent tried by all means let me know but I think I covered all the common techniques OUTSIDE of buying additional equiment (splitter) which I dont feel i should have to do with a new AVR that is supposed to work.
