Another Firmware Question (HDMI problem)
I've been using my 3806 (US version) for many years with an old Sony VPL-50 projector (connected via HDMI) with no issues whatsoever. The projector recently died so I bought a new Epson Home Cinema 3000. The projector works great however, the 3806 will not recognize it, nor output to it, when connected to the 3806 over HDMI. The firmware versions I have are the original:
I found newer firmware that Janghell posted (thank you Janghell). The changelog for that version states:
Changelog of Firmware AVR3806
When the customer connected the source equipment to the COMPONENT input of an AV amplifier and AV amplifier and Display with HDMI connection, the customer controlled MASTER VOLUME up and down, a Flashing Noise indicates in a picture at once.
Improvement of the transaction of Bass management setting
Improvement of support the Audio Digital signal at PC resolution (SVGA, XGA, etc.) from the HDMI input with DVD-3930 or DVD-2930
Supporting the LPCM 7.1ch digital signal
Supporting the PC resolution (1600x 1200, 60Hz max.) from HDMI iput
adjustement the pop noise when operating the REC SELECT
Depending upon the timing after the function is switched, the Setup OSD is sometimes not indicated when the System Setup Button was operated continuously.
Improement of the RS232C Serial Control
A few questions:
Is this the latest firmware? If so, what versions does it update the Main, Sub and DSP to?
Will this work on the US version of the 3806?
The changelog doesn't mention the specific problem I'm having but does mention HDMI. Does anyone know if updating the firmware will address HDMI issues like what I'm seeing?
The reason I'm reluctant to upgrade is that I'm an Apple guy with no access to PCs, nevermind one old enough to have the serial port and XP, so I'll have to scrounge around to find something. That seems like a lot of hassle if it's not going to fix the problem, blow away all me existing settings etc.
Thanks very much,
