First of all, *V1.11j* firmware? This is the first report we've had of any version later than V1.11h. Are there any release notes indicating what it might have fixed and what might have been in any V1.11i version?
Now on your A2 problem: Of course you should talk to Anthem tech support and see if they have any suggestions, but the basics are to first unplug and examine the HDMI plugs and sockets at both ends with a flashlight looking for any signs of pin damage. If there are no such signs, then try hooking the A2 directly to your TV to verify that its HDMI output is working at all. As always, be gentle when making your HDMI connections, but make sure that the plugs are FULLY inserted STRAIGHT into the sockets with no stress (cable weight for example) to the side.
If that's OK, then try the A2 through the Anthem with the A2 set to 480p resolution and playing a standard DVD disc. This is the least demanding HDMI connection for the A2.
Let's start with that and see if anything suggests itself.
EDITED TO ADD: A few D2 settings to check. In the D2's Setup / Source Select for the A2 input, verify that HDMI Repeater=NO and Auto Dig=NO are both set. Back out of the Setup menu. With the A2 input selected, bring up the Video Source Adjust menu (press and hold the "7") key. Scroll to the Output panel and then down the Frame Lock line and verify that Frame Lock = OFF is set. Then scroll over to the Info panel and see if it is reporting anything at all for input from the A2.
