I'm having issues with PJ (X7000) which seems to interfere with the other HDMI output of my AV processor (Yamaha 5100).
I have the following setup:
Yamaha 5100 AV processor.
Various sources, including Oppo 203, Xbox, Sat box connected to 5100
HDMI out 1 is connectd to JVC PJ
HDMI out 2 - to LG 4K TV
PJ is connects with a fiberoptic HDMI cable from Kramer: https://www.kramerav.com/Product/CP-AOCH/60
The problem I'm having is when I want to watch any source on TV with my PJ off, the TV cannot lock to the 5100. You can see flickering in cycles where it tries to lock the signals.
I think that this is due to the fact that the optical cable is active and there is some activity within the cable even with the turned off projector, which causes some interference between HDMI Out 1 and HDMI Out 2. This doesnt happen with a normal cable or if I unplug the optical cable from either the PJ or 5100.
I'm not sure which piece of my equipment is to blame for this, but it seems that even when PJ is off, the HDMI inputs remain active and powered causing the cable to be also active. As a reuslt Yamaha is trying constantly to lock with the PJ and while trying to lock, it flickers the HDMI out to TV.
Has anyone had any similar experience with optical cables or just similar experience? Is it possible to completely power off the HDMI outputs when PJ is off? Any other solutions?
BTW, I previousely had Celerity optical cable, which requires external power on the PJ side. I had the same issue there too, but I managed to build a device that cuts off the power to the cable when the PJ is turned off. That solved the problem.
Kramer cable doesnt requre external power, so this trick doesn't work anymore.
