When I hookup the htpc directly to the pj the video is just fine. If I hook the 3010 up to an old 15" lcd monitor with a hdmi to dvi cable the video is fine (both on screen menu and video source). Does this sound like an hdmi handshake issue? Is there anything I can try to get this to work?
The htpc and a sony ps3 both display just fine when hooked directly to the projector.
I'v tried switching the default resolution to all of the different settings options on the 3010 with no luck. And made sure that the monitor seek mode is enabled in the advanced settings menu as the manual suggests.
I'm really bummed right now because I was so excited that my wife actually let me get this 3010 but If I can't even access the on screen menu for this receiver or the video switching capabilities I was hoping for I may need to look for something else.
Any and all help and or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your time.
I don't know if I have a solution for you, but I experienced similar problems when using my RX-A3000. I could connect any computer to any TV/monitor in my home @1080p, but not when connecting through the RX-A3000. Other resolutions worked, just not 1080p@60Hz or 59Hz, despite the fact that my Xbox 360 and Blu-ray player worked perfectly. Even 1080p@ 24Hz worked, but using a computer with that refresh rate is murder. I was never able to resolve the handshake issue with those displays, but once I replaced my primary display with an Epson 8350 projector, I never had any further issues.
All resolutions and refresh rates from my computers (and other devices) pass through the RX-A3000 to the Epson without issue. I have no idea why it didn't work for the three other monitors/TVs, but then does work for the Epson. I spent a few hours going over the issue with Yamaha, but they claimed the problem wasn't theirs (no help). My older HDMI Yamaha AVR did not have this issue.
I tried EVERY possible combination of video options on the receiver. In the end, my solution was a new display
All I can surmise what that Yamaha has faulty/goofy HDMI hardware in their new line of AVRs or they have switch to an extremely strict HDMI output controller that is simply incompatible with some displays - all my other 1080p displays are about 4-6 years old so perhaps age/protocol (HDMI 1.1, 1.2, etc.) has something to do with it?
