When I select 1080p for the Reon it simply will not sync and starts bouncing all over the place. 1080i Reon syncs but displays noise and looks washed compared to running HDMI straight to the projector, a VPL-VW50. Reon "through" selection seems to be best at this point but it's extremely disappointing not to be able to use this processor. I have selected Immediate display to "off" in OSD as well. I even tried running 1080p on the Oppo into "through" on the Onklyo and it had problems with that as well. What gives?
Has anyone heard or experienced similar problems? Will Onkyo be able to help?
Could be an HDMI cable problem since it won't pass 1080p from either the Oppo or the Integra.... FWIW the Reon will likely do a better job of upconverting and processing if you feed it the native 480i signal from the Oppo. (Even if it outputs 1080i your PJ can cleanly convert that to 1080p with ease.)
If the HDMI audio works with the Oppo, then there's no reason that it shouln't work with your DVR - check the HDMI settings on the DVR and Integra.
