When connected to HDMI 1, projector doesn't detect a signal, TV says "No Signal" and receiver's display area for input signals is blank. I would already have concluded its a h/w problem, save for the fact that it played from the HDMI 1 just the previous night. I didn't change any settings, no firmware upgrades happened, and I tried several blu-ray and DVD discs, but he results are the same.
I will also try what Bob suggested to Afriya, but I am afraid my HDMI 1 is dead. I purchased it only last month.
When checking if you have a hardware problem, test with *ONLY* HDMI 1 cabled, and with Primary Output set to HDMI 1.
With both HDMI outputs cabled there are lots of additional complexities that can confuse things, such as if there are two HDMI paths to the same display (one direct and one through the AVR).
Whenever the player is showing odd behavior, it is useful to try the simple reset procedure "just in case":
1) Remove any disc. Jot down your personal settings.
2) In Setup, Erase Persistent Storage, then Reset Factory Defaults. When the Easy Setup Wizard finishes, power down the player.
3) Pull the power plug for about 10 seconds. Do not skip this step.
4) Power up and re-enter your personal settings.
5) Power down again. Settings are saved during the power down cycle.
It is also a good idea to power down at both ends of the HDMI cable before removing or plugging in an HDMI plug.
NOTE: HDMI plugs are just friction fit. Far and way the single most common reason for loss of HDMI signal is simply that the plug -- at one end or the other -- has worked its way loose a bit in the socket. It only takes a small shift to cause problems. The weight of the cable, or the tugging of the cable due to cable folds or bends is often all it takes.
