The PS3 detects the HDMI cord, but then when I agree to switch output to HDMI, the screen goes to no input. The PS3 works on other TV's/Monitors with HDMI, so I believe that the issue is the SR5001. Any ideas?
Here's an answer that will be of no use, and probably not what you want to hear, but I had a very similar problem with the SR5001. I could only get 1 HDMI input to work. I sent it back and got the 8001. It could be coincidence, but I feel your pain.
Now, to try to be helpful. Did you try doing a reverse handshake? Have your receiver with your ps3 selected, turn everything off, turn on the ps3 first, let it boot, turn on the 5001 and wait for indication that it has done it's handshake with the ps3 (namely, you want to see speaker channels light up on the 5001 display), then turn on your TV/display. This is what I have to do with my Oppo 983 on my 8001. All other HDMI inputs work great no matter how or when I turn things on, off, or switch them, but I need to go through this procedure almost every time with my Oppo.
Hope that can help.
p.s. I looked at your post again and it seems like you may be having a problem even telling your PS3 to use the HDMI output? If so, you might try hooking it directly into the TV to make sure the PS3 is sending out the HDMI, then reconnect to your receiver and try the above sequence.
