Hi! I hope this is the right place for this post. If not, I hope the forum moderators will move it.
I'm having an issue and need suggestions on what might fix it. Let me briefly describe my setup. I have:
Denon AVS-587 (no HDMI switching)
Tivo Series 3 HD
Monoprice HD10baseT extender http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=109&cp_id=10110&cs_id=1011012&p_id=8122&seq=1&format=2
I didn't have a problem with my old setup, then I upgraded my receiver to a Yamaha RX-Z11. This nullified the Denon and the 4x2. And now I have a problem.
HERE's the issue. The Tivo is set to output at 1080i Fixed. When I turn on the Yamaha, the Tivo output remains set. When I power on the projector the Tivo changes its output to 480p. If I change the Tivo back to 1080i it stays, I can change channels, etc with no problems. If I change away from and then back to HDMI1 on the projector and the same problem occurs.
Logically it seems I'm having a handshake issue. It seems the Tivo is polling the projector for EDID and is returned a 480p. I checked the receiver to see if its modifying the HDMI sources. HDMI processing is turned off. Analog source conversion is on.
What can I do to further test the problem. Has anyone else had this problem or one similar?
On an unrelated note, have a few other questions.
1. I have Yamaha's Receiver Manager Software for the Z11 v126.96.36.199. Is there a more current version that somebody would be willing to share?
2. What sound modes does everyone like and for which source? I currently have everything set to "Surround Decode". This gives me the original sound profile the media was recorded in. Are there others people like?
3. What else should I play with on my new Z11?
