Can someone help me out, Last Thursday I received my 8801 and hooked everything up but for some reason the Marantz does not see my Oppo bdp-83 and I am unable to connect any video or audio. I have read previous post where there was a similar issues but nothing on the fix., I unplugged and plugged everything back in with no luck. I have contacted Marantz via email twice and have not received a reply I have also contacted oppo and they did not reply back.
Any help or guidance would be appreciated Thanks
Have you tested the following:
-Does the Oppo work with the same HDMI cable direct in your TV?
-Does another device work on the same HDMI input on the Marantz?
-Is Pure Direct turned on? (It cuts the picture when turned on, haven't tested the sound with this, but the AV8003 had sound from HDMI with pure direct)
You could try this: •Pressing the Display button for 10 or 15 seconds will reset the Video Setup options when you release the button. This includes the HDMI Options but not the Picture Adjustment settings. This is handy if you've accidentally made a change (Color Space, for example) that your display does not accept.
