I seem to have run into a small snag. When I first got it, I initially connected the player directly to my samsung dlp tv via a HDMI-to-DVI cable and things were hunky dory. I then bought a marantz sr6002 receiver which has HDMI inputs and outputs, and when I route the signal through it, the tv won't display a picture. To my untrained eyes it looks like the player and the tv can't get an HDMI handshake going anymore: the player's HDMI indicator lights up for an instant every few seconds, and when it does that, the tv briefly displays a "not supported mode" message, then resumes its "no signal found" banner. Anyone run into that? If so, how'd you set up the receiver to get around the problem? Mind you, as soon as I connect the player directly to the tv, video plays just fine.
A few more questions, while I'm at it:
- under what circumstances should I get video signal out of the component output of the player? i.e. does a presence of a plugged-in HDMI cable matter? does it matter whether I'm playing a standard DVD disk vs. HD DVD? does the firmware matter?
- I tried burning the various revs of the firmware to CDs, but they all abort with an error essentially amounting to "bad image". Ideas?
Thanks in advance
