I'm hoping some kind soul can help me out as I am not ultra literate with this stuff. I'll try to be as detailed about what I tried, and what my setup looks like.
Here's my setup that is not working ("no input", blank screen):
BD35 > HDMI > Onkyo SR605 > HDMI to DVI > Panny TH50
When I go back to my old HD-DVD player, it works fine:
Toshiba A2 > HDMI > Onkyo SR605 > HDMI to DVI > Panny TH50
This leads me to believe the HDMI cables are good. My next experiment was to use the yellow RCA cable with the BD35, and that worked fine too (although crappy picture):
BD35 > RCA cable > Onkyo SR605 > HDMI to DVI > Panny TH50
This leads me to believe that the BD35 itself is operating normally. Next, I tried bypassing the Onkyo completely, and that worked fine too!
BD35 > HDMI to DVI > Panny TH50
For those of you who are about to suggest I leave it like this - my TV only has 1 DVI input, so I'd rather run it through the Onkyo (which is why I bought the Onkyo). So, it appears that the BD35 is working properly, but doesn't like it when I try to send the picture through the SR605!! Not sure if this is a "handshake" thing or what, I'm not knowledgeable enough to say (or how to fix, if this is the problem).
Here's the things I read on this thread and tried:
- Updated firmware to 1.5, check.
- Reset factory settings, check.
- HDMI set to "on", check.
- Tested HDMI cables (per above), check.
- Turned 24p off, check (in fact it is greyed out, cannot select it).
- Powered all systems off, then back on, check.
Hoping someone can have pity on me and help me diagnose the problem, thanks!! (Or, other SR605 owners chime in - I did read at least one other poster saying they were getting a blank screen through their SR605). Thanks to all in advance for any advice!!
