Set the HDMI "resolution" and "aspect" to "through". Audio output to "amp". See if that helps any.
HDMI handshake is from the connected source to the TV, the AVR is not involved unless the TV is off. Power off - on on the TV should re-acquire the handshake to whatever source the AVR is switched to. Power off - on on any of the connected components should do the same thing. Since it's a pain to power off the BD player and re-start a disc, I'd go with the TV. Changing input sources on the AVR should trigger a new handshake, but one of the components is not playing nice. One of those components is not handshaking properly, I doubt the Yamaha is at fault.
Based on your description, either the player or the TV is at fault. If the DVR always works, then the player is the prime suspect. If the DVR has the same issue as the player, then the TV is suspect. (the player has HDCP, the DVR is a bit different)
Hope this helps.
