On hdmi 2 and 3 port if i connect my oppo 93 (with y:4:4:4 36bit (highest hdmi setting)) and even with a 1 foot cable, i have snow on screen when it play 60p but not a 24p. If i downgrade the firmware to 2.10, i can reuse the hdmi4 port and no snow on picture with the other port. But i hate 2.10 because i experienced a lot of pink screen, low volume bug and handshake problem (then i need to close the avm or switch to another source and came back to cure the handshake problem). Is someone experience this problem and cured the problem ? I aldready email Anthem but they have nothing more to say that they will have a new firmware soon....
thank you !
p.s. Hardware : ps3 on hdmi1, oppo 93 on hdmi2, xpressvu on hdmi3, panasonic pt-ae4000 on hdmi out.
First, make sure all your HDMI cables -- from Source devices to the Anthem, and from Anthem to the Display -- are marketed as "High Speed" or "For 1080p".
Second, avoid short HDMI cables when connecting devices. This may not fix your problem, but as a start, replace your 1 foot HDMI interconnect cable with a 6 foot (2 meter) cable. It's not commonly talked about, but short HDMI cables can give just as much grief as long ones. 6-foot is kind of the optimum length for an HDMI cable between any two devices.
For testing HDMI 4 input, temporarily set your OPPO 93 to 480p (not 480i) output resolution with explicit settings (not AUTO) for Color Space YCbCr 4:4:4, HDMI Audio LPCM, HDMI CEC OFF, 3D Mode OFF and see if that works for input 4 (with a "normal" length HDMI cable such as the one provided by OPPO with the player). If that works, then start changing one at a time back to your desired settings to see when the problem re-appears. 480p is the "simplest" signal for HDMI to carry.
If you are using the new "THROUGH" setting in your Setup > Source Setup definitions, instead of picking one of your defined Video Output Configurations, that may be the problem. Test by changing your Source Definitions back to using Video Output Configuration 1 (or whatever your "normal" choice is). If THAT works then that suggests your display is having trouble tracking the video format changes passing through the Anthem when THROUGH is used.
