I'm having "signal problems" with my 1910. This problem is really hard for me to explain, but I'll try. Please let me know if anything's unclear.
My main setup:
HTPC (HDMI) -> AVR 1910 (HDMI) -> Panasonic plasma TV
Sometimes when I turn on the AVR (mostly from standby, because that's how I leave it when I flip the main power switch, so the devices can be turned on from standby with my Harmony remote) it doesn't pick up a signal. I tested this numerous times, with different sources, e.g. with both HDMI (e.g. from the HTPC) and TUNER.
I first thought this was just an HDMI issue (e.g. handshake problems), but since I also have the same problem (or at least, it seems related to it) with analogue sources (e.g. TUNER), I figure it has to be something else.
Let me explain the TUNER case in detail:
- I turn on the main power to the HT gear
- The AVR and TV are in standby mode (because that's how I left them when I turned off the power)
- I turn on the AVR (input is already on TUNER)
- AVR correctly displays all the information of the current radio station (RDS stuff like song title and station name, etc.)
- Sometimes (maybe 1 out of 10 times) it doesn't output any sound to the speakers though
Usually this can be fixed by turning the AVR off and on again (mostly never on the first try though) or by switching around inputs, which usually also doesn't work instantly. This is VERY frustrating.
- Now if I also turn on the TV, it doesn't pick up any signal from the AVR
- Switching to another input, like the HTPC (HDMI), on the AVR also doesn't change anything, the AVR doesn't pick up the signal from the HTPC (or any other source, for that matter, e.g. Component from PS2 or another HDMI soruce). Usually I can fix this by turning the AVR off and on (see above).
I highly doubt this is related to an HDMI issue, because that wouldn't explain the TUNER issue (which ONLY occurs when I don't get any signals from other sources either AND vice versa) and the TUNER on its own doesn't need anything HDMI related anyway and should just plain work.
Further, I already bought 2 HDMI Detectives (pretty expensive for what they do, as you will probably know) and placed them between the HTPC/AVR and AVR/TV, respectively, thinking this would fix my issues (at the time I thought this was related to HDMI handshake issues). Of course it didn't
Does anybody know what could be causing this?
A big thank you in advance!
