Good morning all.
Here is my 1st post regarding a problem with my AVR3808a which I am hoping one of the experienced members can help with.
My setup is a pioneer plasma 427 max screen resolution 1080i however it will take a 1080p picture and display it as a 1080i.
The receiver is the denon 3808a, which has all sources connected by HDMI.
My problem is that I have now connected a Xbox 1 to the receiver via HDMI. The xbox 1 outputs 720p and 1080p only. My pioneer will not accept the 1080p as a direct connection from the Xbox 1, so I connected the Xbox 1 through the receiver, set the Xbox 1 to 720p, set global Hdmi up scaling to A-H H-H. I then in the individual menu of each device enabled the video upscale / conversion to On. However after all this and for any source my tv only displays the input signal ie. 720p in 720p being displayed on the plasma. The same goes for my cable box 1080i I'm 1080i on the plasma. I have looked in the menu on the receiver HDMI Signal monitor and this confirms what the source signal is and what the output signal is. In all cases both are the same with no up scaling or down scaling. I have tried a microprocessor reset which did not solve the problem.
Please can anyone offers any help. The worrying thought us that my receiver had never worked correctly since purchasing it some years ago, but I have only tried the scaling function now.
