Angry HELP! First home Theatre - Projector not detecting signal through receiver

Hope someone can provide guidance on setting up Xbox One and Cable box to basement projector.

Had projector setup via Component through receiver to play old Xbox 360 but now have Xbox One so only HDMI connection available (worked fine). For some reason my projector is not picking up signal with Xbox One or Cable Box via HDMI through the same receiver. I believe the problem is with the receiver based on the testing below:

-Xbox One and Cable box work when directly connected to Projector via HDMI (just video since projector doesn't have speakers)
-Interchanged/tested all the HDMI cables to confirm it's NOT the cables
-Tried plugging in device(s) into receiver line IN on every HDMI port (Video, Game, SATV, DVD etc...) but still no signal
-Cycled through Projector inputs (obviously HDMI is what I want)
-Receiver line OUT is ARC enabled
-When directly connected via HDMI, the Projector displays Cable TV and Xbox One in 720P perfectly (older projector)

What is the actual make and model of your projector and A/V receiver? Maybe there is something there. The fact that it's a 720p projector concerns me some. If you aren't getting any video at all out of the A/V receiver via HDMI, then that's a concern.

You do have HDMI connected from the receiver to the projector don't you?

Have you tested that HDMI cable directly from the sources? I'm assuming you have.

Do you have a display you can hook up to the receiver, to make sure the HDMI output is functional? Especially since you haven't previously used it?
