I finally received my HDMI cables today... Tried hooking up the HTPC to the TX-NR609 directly but the output becomes garbage as soon as the graphical interface (X) starts (Running Ubuntu 11.10). Though I see the BIOS and console just fine !
If I plug the HTPC in the TV HDMI directly, everything works properly but then I can't get the sound to the AVR in digital.
Is it possible this have anything to do with an HDCP handshake or some other related issue?!
All I get is funky colors on the screen or weird frozen squarish patterns.
Zotac Nvidia GTX460 (HTPC) -> Onkyo TX-NR609 (AVR) -> Insignia NSPDP50HD-09 (TV)
I tried with different modes (direct, through), different cables, played with nvidia-settings a little, etc.
Is there anything special to know about outputting to an AVR with the NVidia driver? (280.13)
Anyone has been successful with such a setup or this specific Onkyo serie? (TX-NR?09)
