Hello,


i recently hooked up the followign comonents


pioneer vsk-919ah reciever

pioneer bdp-lx71 blue ray player

sony vpl-hw15 projector


now im no av expert but i have read all 3 manuals back to front in quest to fix my issue with no luck.


Basically, with everythign hooked up correctly to the receiver,

blue ray player to bd hdmi in port and ps3 to hdmi1 in port, and a hdmi going from the only hdmi out of the reciever to a ****** lcd tv, everything works perfect (sound and picture).


now if i unplug the hdmi at the tv end, i still get sound (but obviously loose picture). when i plug the end into a hdmi1 in on the projector and have hdmi input selected on the projector, i loose sound and still dotn have a picture. (almost as if the receiver is tryign to send the sound signal to the projector). if i select hdmi input 2 on the projector, i get the sound back - but still no picture (as expected)


basically im all out of ideas here so if anyone can suggesdt anything of help me out, that would be much appreciated.


Cheers

Chris

Is the HDMI cable used for the PJ the same length as was connected to the LCD and if yes, what length? After unplugging the HDMI cables while the components are ON, power off every device (not in standby), and plug HDMI back in, and power on the PJ, then the AVR, then the source device .. waiting a few seconds between each power on.

thanks for quick reply,


HDMI cable is about 10m long. rule out the length of cable by connecting the tv to the end of the same hdmi cable as the projector and the tv worked fine.



old setup connected the ps3 to the projector usign a splitter box and we had no issue with the hdmi /projector arrangement then.


will go give what u just mentioned above a crack.


cheers

what happens if you run the PJ directly to the ps3 with the same cable? It probably works just fine. My guess is that you have a HDMI handshake issue (why the other guy said to turn on in a specific order) that might not ever go away with that exact combo of products. Might take some experimenting to figure out the right combo with a different receiver brand

relocated the projector to the amp and tried with a 1.5 meter cable with no success.


also hooked it up to an older panasonic projector and experience exaxtly the same problem with that one too

had a av specialist come round the house and spent 3 hrs trying to resolve the issue with no luck. Also tried hooking up the receiver to another lcd tv and didnt work on that either. ALSO took it to a hifi store and had them try plug it in to any of their projectors and d\\still didnt work. they concluded that there is a fault with the unit but for some reason it works with the teac lcd - they cant explain that..


have bypassed the issue for now and run picture signal the a switch panel to the projector and only hooked up sound through the av.

Do each of the components have the latest firmware installed?



Just my $0.02...
