Every device is fine if I go direct from it to projector using the fiber to optical adapter, it’s just no good when through the AVR. Tried firmware update on 5050UB but couldn’t get it to take. Seems like it starts trying to install it but then never ends. There’s no display for it so hard to tell if it’s doing anything at all, but I left it going over an hour and it never completed so I’m thinking a firmware update is out of the question, and doubt it’d have anything to do with fixing my problem. Have already replaced the fiber to optical adapter with a fresh one from my vendor but still same problem. Wondering if there’s some weird incompatibility issue between the Marantz and 5050UB.
I've got a SR6011 and have had very few issues with my 9400.
The firmware update is like most epsons and you need a blank USB drive, Fat/fat32 format, in the root of the drive and no hidden security folder. Takes a few minutes.
The update adds FI with 4k on 1080p sources, so whilst useful I'm not sure it will help your issue.
It's cable and/or Marantz settings. You should be able to see the Marantz screen on the projector without any sources!
I have heard of issues with dual display, so if you are using a TV, try unplugging that.
Info / projector info will tell you what the projector is receiving in terms of the signal with color depth etc
