I am aware that this is an old thread, but I am hoping there are enough people looking at it and can help me out
Setup: Mid 2011 mac mini as my HTPC connected to the VSX-1021 via HDMI. I also have a PS3, Xbox 360, Dish receiver connected via HDMI to the receiver. The receiver is connected to a Sony 46" TV via HDMI.
I have a few issues/observation that I need help with:
1] Every time I switch between the various HDMI inputs and get to the mac mini, a weird thing happens where the display switches over, but within a couple of seconds, it goes blank and then pops back again. I have tried various settings, but I can't seem to figure out how to fix this issue.
2] Using "Audio Midi Setup" on the mac mini, I have setup the HDMI output to 8ch 24 bit. When I run XBMC, I see the PCM message on the receiver, but if I were to switch over to a different HDMI line (dish receiver) and switch back to the mini, it goes back to 2ch output! I can go back to Audio Midi Setup and change it to 8ch, but it only works for that session.
3] Display on mac mini - it always defaults to "scaled to fit". If I were to set it to 1080p and go out of the preferences pane, and come back again, it would have reset to "scaled to fit"
I would really appreciate any inputs or pointers in the right direction.
