Resume from standby is the issue and seems as the HTPC wakes fine but I end up with a blank screen on the Samsung LED. Sometimes if I put it to sleep and wake it up 2-3 tries in a row it comes alive. A reboot always cures it. After much reading it sounds like an EDID trasmission issue. I also read of this device by Gefen called "HDMI Detective" that stores EDID info and will always pass it to the HTPC so wake up issued are generaly cured. Also did some reading about EDID Overrides...could this fix it? I did have a cure, but not without drawbacks. First we watch some SmartHub content from the Samsung LED built in menu and seems if you turn off the TV's "AnyNet (HDMI-CEC)" function you lose the audio return channel so no sound from SmartHub content but the HTPC will wake fine with this off. What I suspect is happening is the Pioneer AVR senses the audio return channel from the TV and is switching the input over to TV/SAT, which in turn stops sending the EDID to the HTPC because it switched inputs on me....this has been another pain as you must switch the input again after the Harmony One remote turns everything on and assigns inputs the Pioneer switches it at the last second and I believe it's the HDMI-CEC doing so. I wish they had a feature to not auto sense inputs and switch them...just use what I tell it to. Maybe I should just turn all that AnyNet and HDMI-CEC stuff off! I was thinking of doing that and run a seperate digital audio out cable from TV to AVR and that should cure it but not tested the theory yet.
Anyone have any thought on the best cure for this and what is really happening...my evaluation right?
