Yes I can see the front display on the unit. I will need to get a 100 ft Cat5. UPDATE: I just unplugged all my HDMI cables, re-plugged them, removed the HDMI cable going to HDMI- port 1 into my Panny and put it in the Panny HDMI port 2 and now it works. Seems to be an issue the the HDMI-1 port on the Panny. Strange because it was running fine before on the HDMI input. Thanks to All for helping. I am hoping this doesn't turn into a common issue. The Panny and all my other components are up to date with firmware since they can use wireless connections.
I should clarify.... switching out the HDMI to port 2 on the Panny was just the last step. Prior to that , after disconnecting all sources with hdmi and resetting those (oppo, sat reciever etc) and turning back on the 8801 I finally got audio, but no video. Went into the 8801 setting to make sure everything was set up correctly. Then I just changed a few inputs to incorrect settings, then changed them back to correct settings. I rebooted the system and put in a movie on the oppo. I got both audio and video..perfect!!...Not so fast... I switched to SAT and I had audio, but no video. Switched back to Oppo and recieved both audio and video. However, everytime i went back to SAT I did not have any video. That is when I switched the HDMI cables into the Panny. Rebooted everything again and that is when the issue was resolved. Lots of compatibility handshakes and stuff going on and not everyone was playing nice i guess.
In what order are you turning on your gear?
