I have encountered a problem that I can't solve, and your help and advice would be greatly appreciated. I have two video units connected to the D2V, a Panasonic TC-P65VT30 plasma display, and a JVC DLA-HD750 projector. The Panasonic is connected to HDMI 1 Out and the JVC projector to HDMI 2 Out. The Panasonic can be used for 3D while the projector is 2D only.
My problem occurs when operating entirely in a 2D mode. NOTE that both the Panasonic and the JVC projector are connected ONLY using HDMI and NOT component, including for the projector. Also note that the behavior described below occurs with a Tivo that is connected to the Anthem via component, but is also occurs on Blu-Ray and DVD playes that are connected only through HDMI. In fact, the behavior described below is consistent for all components, regardless of whether they are connected with HDMI or component.
All of them either do or do not allow the use of OSD as consistently described below.
The on-screen display shows up on the Panasonic display only when the video configuration is set to HDMI. I used 1920x1080p 60. The rest of the settings are HDTV-auto-auto-black-normal-Zone 2.
The on-screen display does NOT show up on the projector when using the above. It only works when the video configuration is set to Component with the rest of the settings the same as above.
So if the configuration is set to HDMI, the Panasonic gets OSD, but the projector does not. If the configuration is set to component, the projector gets OSD but the Panasonic does not.
This is very annoying. Why is this happening? What do I need to do to get OSD for both display units, a Panasonic plasma and a JVC projector? Why does the projector require a video configuration of component, when it is receiving an HDMI signal?
I could run both units off of HDMI 1 output, rather than separating them on separate HDMI outputs, if that would make a difference. But why would it? Under that scenario, I could run them both on HDMI 2 output using an HDMI splitter. The Panasonic can take two inputs, so I could run a separate HDMI cable out of HDMI 1 output for 3D.
I have no idea if that would work, and more importantly, would like to know why a plasma display and a projector, that both are only connected via HDMI, can't both show OSD at the same time.
PS Many thanks for the great links and intro at the start of this thread. I have copied all of the ARC postings, and sub postings, into one word document. Once I add the video posts, I will share and post the word document, as it might be useful for other newbies to this this very loooong thread. At least for me, it was useful to copy all of the ARC posts into one document that I could consult.
