1) Is this normal?
2) How can I fix it?
No, it is not normal . No such issue with my PC with GT1030, SR7011 , and Optoma UHD65 projector.
Make sure your 6011 has the latest firmware update.
If your GPU is running at 4K/60p, make sure your HDMI cables are high quality and as short as possible. Many cables can handle 1080p just fine, or 4K/30Hz, but not 4K/60Hz. Try lowering the resolution and/or fps, and see if the problem goes away.
If you having different HDMI cables around, try them too.
Also, reportedly, sometimes using a different HDMI input on the Marantz can yield different results, though I have not seen that on mine - every HDMI input I tried handles 4K/60p fine.
If you have a spare GPU to try in your PC, try that too - HDMI transmitters can be of varied strengths. The lowest end GPUs tend to have worst ones that may not be quite up to spec.
FYI, my HTPC is running with a 10ft monoprice premium certified HDMI cable to the receiver, and then 50ft SlimRun AV optical HDMI cable from receiver to the projector. All is OK.
My other 4K sources are running with shorter cables - Chromecast Ultra is just inches, Sony UBP-X800 with a 6ft cable to the receiver.
