I just received my new Marantz SR5007 to use in my home theater setup. It replaces a NAD unit I've had for many years. My main reason for getting the SR5007 was HDMI switching between my satellite box (Dish), my blue ray (Samsung), my SACD player (Denon), and my media server (a Windows 7 computer). All those connect to my 6 year old Westinghouse LVM-42w2 HDTV (with HDMI).
The audio works great, but on the various HDMI video inputs (specifically the Blue ray & Sat box), the video blinks on & off with a period of about 10 seconds. From what I've been able to find on the internet, it acts like some sort of 'handshaking" issue. If I connect the various units directly to the TV, they seem to work fine. If I do various combinations (doesn't seem consistent) of powering various units off/on, I can get the video to work (and the picture is great). If I connect my daughter's 24 inch HDTV, it works fine. It seems to be the combination of the brand new SR5007 and my old HDTV.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this issue without 10 minutes of powering down/up the various components (and the resultant cussing)? I could go back to the HDMI switcher I had with my NAD (which would not do HDMI), but that would mean at least one more remote and the loss of the very high resolution audio signals you can only get via the HDMI cable. It would also defeat the MAIN reason I finally upgraded my amp (the NAD sound was great, just no HDMI switching or ingesting).
