I have a problem that I had previously thought was coming from my Blu-ray player but now I think it's the receiver. My player is a Samsung BD-P1000. It has all the latest firmware upgrades. I have it set to output 1080p and connected via HDMI. My display is a Sharp Aquos.
Sometimes when I pause the player and leave it on pause long enough that it shuts down, when I start to play it again the picture is filled with static and looks distorted. I had discovered that if I went into the player setup menu and switched it to 1080i and then back to 1080p it would fix it.
Well today it happened and I just had an idea that it could be happening when the receiver re-syncs with the Blu-ray player. So I went into AV parameter on the receiver and switched the HDMI from AMP to THROUGH and then back and the picture cleared up.
Am I correct in my deduction that it has to do with the receiver's HDMI syncing?
Here is a picture of the problem I'm talking about:
