My cables arrived from Monoprice yesterday. I still cannot get audio handshake to work between HDMI port 2 on the Sony and my receiver. I have gone through all the audio options on the receiver and X800, but cannot find a combination that provides a handshake to pass audio. My receiver will flash the message "NOT SUPPORT" briefly when the X800 attempts to connect, but it never establishes a connection.
The receiver is a Pioneer Elite 94TXH from 2008. The HDMI ports are version 1.3a, while the Sony states it requires HDMI 1.4 for its audio only HDMI 2 port. Could that be what is causing my issue? I've never experienced any issues with other devices I have connected to this AVR via HDMI -- a Panasonic BD player, an older Sony BD player (now in our master bedroom), an Oppo 980H DVD player, two different Roku units, including a Roku Premiere, and a Comcast Xfinity X1 cable box.
For now, I am using the digital coax audio port between the X800 and the AVR so I can get audio. I do not want this to be a permanent solution, though, as this connection does not support the high resolution audio formats such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD-Master, which the AVR supports and I use all the time with my BD player. If I cannot get the audio to work via HDMI port 2, a new AVR may be in my future sooner than I had planned.
