Alright guys I've got a weird problem that I'm not sure how to debug. What I've got is a Radiance XE 3D, I have the latest (as of the last week or two) firmware installed. The problem I'm having is my Radiance will "lock up" occasionally (getting more frequent). It happened to me a few times last night. What I mean by lock up is the screen will go black, and the unit will become unresponsive to remote commands until power is removed.
Here is what I know:
It's connected to a Planar 8150 via a Darbee Darblet (the original version, I haven't tried the newer one that came with bundled with my XE), HDMI Out 2
Anthem AVM 50 is on HDMI Out 1
I have (and I don't recall which HDMI inputs each is connected to:
SageTV HD300 Media Extender/player (HDMI Native/source direct output)
Pioneer BDP-51FD (HDMI Source Direct)
Xbox 360 (HDMI 720p/1080p* 60Hz)
Xbox One (HDMI 720p/1080p* 60Hz)
HTPC (HDMI consisting of a Intel DQ77KB/HD4000 graphics) (1080p24)
These are all in a Middle Atlantic rack in a cabinet (door open most times)
Darbee to projector is a BJC Series 1 cable, 25ft. The rest are (I believe I actually replaced them all) 7-foot BJC Tartain HDMI cables.
FWIW, in my rack, the Amp (Outlaw 7125) is on the bottom, followed by the AVM50V, Radiance XE, Pioneer, Xbox 360, HTPC/HD300, and the Xbone isn't actually in the rack yet.
The XE is set to 1080p output, auto frame rate (to source). I have Game Mode enabled on the Xboxen.
I first noticed the situation when I would have the HTPC on, especially with the more than one of the Xbox 360, HD300, 51FD on.
Later I noticed that with the Xbox 360 set to 1080p60 (HDMI) the video would drop out, but usually come back on it's own.
For a while I've worked around/ignored it by having my Xbox 360 set to 720p, and then making sure to sleep/suspend my HTPC.
But last night, well I guess it was the last straw that got me to finally post the question. Brand new Xbone hooked up and with it set to 1080p (60), within a couple minutes of playing, the XE would black out, and I would have to unplug it to get video back. This happened a few times until I got tired of it and decided to try setting the Xbone to 720p, which "solved" the issue for the rest of the night (with the xbox).
However after that while watching a movie (DVD this time) though my 51FD, I had it black out on me a few more times. Initially with the HTPC on but even.
I haven't been able to find a real iron-clad cause, but it seems that with the Xboxes 1080p60 is problematic, which I suppose it should be noted is really my only 1080p60 sources, everything else generally outputs 1080p24, 1080i, or less. Also the HTPC being connected seems to factor in.
It's occured to me it could be the Darbee that wigs out (although it gets a 1080p60 signal most of the time, except for Blu-ray content). Or maybe I should just contact Lumagen? I'd like to at least get my ducks in a row so to speak before I bother them.
Could it be heat? A thermometer in the cabinet with the door closed (which I usually don't do) peaks at 90-95F. Is there a better way to organize the rack? I think Middle Atlantic recommends putting heat producers on the top, but that would mean my heaviest equipment would be in the top of the rack, I had thought on the bottom would be better.
