First off I'd like to introduce myself. First post here. I built a mini home theater after browsing this site and other resources and basically lurked a lot. Reading other peoples problems and advice teaches a lot! I've been running a set up for a year now with my ps3 and hd directv box into a Denon AVR 1312, then to an Optoma Hd180. Really good set up for what I need, but today somehow I encountered a problem.
Yesterday everything worked 100% correct. I played the new Call of Duty on it flawlessly, audio and video. Today is a different story. Heres the rundown:
DirecTv box through any of the four hdmi inputs works flawlessly using hdmi cable1, cable2, and cable3
The ps3 using any of my three hdmi cables outputs audio fine, but the receiver is outputting the video as green lines. Not green lines overlaying a picture, but just green lines.
The ps3 works correctly when using any three of my hdmi cables connected to my 37" LG hdtv. The audio and video.
The crazy thing is that usually when I am on any input on my receiver and nothing is plugged in, it usually shows up as no input from the projector. Now, I can have every cable unplugged, yet the projector is still picking up an output of video from the receiver. The receiver is showing green lines, whether a cable is plugged in or not, except when the DirecTv box is plugged in and chosen.
The problem makes no sense to me.. i've reset the receiver, unplugged all devices from the reciever, tried them in all different inputs with different cables, cross referenced them to my hdtv, and even unplugged the power cables from the ps3, receiver and directv. Am I missing something? I feel that is has to do with the hdmi handshake, but no part of any device had a system update or what not so I don't understand.
thanks for any input
