5770 to Yamaha receiver....

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Been running my HTPC HDMI directly to my projector with the 7.1 analog-outs providing my sound. So I wanted to try going HDMI to my receiver to try my hand at bitstreaming, but whenever I select the HDMI slot that my 5770 is plugged into, it says "no video signal" on my Yamaha (and on the display). What gives?

A few questions before we try to help you.

1) Receiver model #.

2)What particular input are you using ? (to the receiver). Did you disconnect analog outputs ?

3) Projector brand and model # .

4) What firmware version are you using for your 5770 ? Recommend latest
believe 10.9 is the latest.

5) Did you set the card to output signal through HDMI , on the Catalyst firmware ?

Cheers.

1) Yamaha HTR-6260. Video card detects it correctly in CCC and displays it in the clone section. But NO VIDEO gets displayed when going through the receiver.
2) HDMI from video card to receiver, HDMI out to projector (Epson 8100). Used to use HDMI from video card to projector and then 7.1 analogs from soundcard to receiver, but I just want to run everything through the receiver now.
3) Epson 8100.
4) Yep, 10.9.
5) Yes, tried everything in CCC. Tried clone, extended desktop, even tried re-booting with just the receiver HDMI plugged in because CCC is usually smart and automatically sees a lone connection.

Nothing is working. I really want to stop using analog audio.

Thanks for your time.

What resolution are you using?

When I get home tonight, I'll go check my Yamaha RX-V863 and list all the settings I'm using.

Glad you bumped this because I forgot. Give me about half an hour and I'll post the settings. I have to reconnect the TV because I'm currently running it via a separate connection.

One thing I just thought of though: if your AVR has HDMI CEC capability, try disabling it.

Option Menu -> Video Settings -> Video Conv -> On
Option Menu -> Video Settings -> HDMI Res. -> *Through
Option Menu -> HDMI Set -> S. Audio -> RX-V863

I also have an option in the advanced setup to skip a monitor check that may or may not be useful for you.

Turn off AVR.
Hold "Tone" and press "Power" on AVR.
Use the "Program" dial to go to "Monitor Check..."
Press "Tone" to toggle the setting (options are "Yes" or "Skip").
Press "Power" to save setting.

Playing FLAC movies with MPC-HC and also playing games, my "signal info" on the Yamaha reads "3/4/0.1 PCM 192kHz". Is this as it should be?
