FYI I had the same issue not being able to get 4K over my brand new Redmere HDMI cable. Rather than rip drywall to install a new cable, I got an Atlona Balun(Tbase Extender), and utilized the Cat6...

Well I now have zero issues with 4K UHD thanks to an Atlona Balun utilizing the cat 6 cable I installed way sooner than thought.

Anyone else use CMD with UHD discs? I normally detest it, but it...

Well I just tried a factory reset, no change. Also out of frustration I unhooked it and yanked it from the rack. Using a 6ft Binary cable from player to Yamaha, and the 10ft Ethereal cable from the...

Neat thought, but 4K does work over that cable direct to the projector. Plus the friends 16ft cable was a regular passive cable, still wouldn't work from the Yamaha.

Let's not rule it out. I dropped $2400 on a top of the line unit that won't do its job. Few things make me more murderous than electronics that won't do the job for which they are made.

I'm using a 25ft Catalyst AV cable with Redmere technology, shouldn't be is issue at all.

I tried a friends 16ft 18.2gbps cable from the Yamaha to projector, it wouldn't work either.

What length cable do you have from the 5100 to the TV? Can we sue Yamaha for false advertising?

The cable didn't work, nor did the HDMI booster, big shocker. So I can either connect the player directly to the projector for UHDs, using the secondary HDMI output from the player for audio. Or take...

I seem to have lost the original remote. Can I get any generic universal remote to replace it? Looks like an actual replacement costs $150, which makes me laugh.

I have a 150" Seymour Center Stage XD screen. 3D is bright and glorious through the JVC. 4K is plenty bright as soon as I switch to normal gamma, it looks great. Gamma D simply can't be correct.
