So I bought the Denon recently, and the Blu-Ray player is Panasonic. I have an HDMI cable coming out of my projector, W1070, into the Denon, via the HDMI out, then all of my components hooked up to the other HDMI in ports. The Apple TV and TiVo box work perfectly. Zero issues. My Panasonic Blu-Ray player isn't recognized when hooked up the exact same way. I have tried that particular input on the Denon with different components and the same HDMI cable I am using for the Blu-Ray player and everything works perfectly. I can bypass the Denon and hook directly to the Blu-Ray player from the projector, and it works that way. No sound of course though. So....any ideas guys? Thanks in advance for your help!

If the Blu Ray player has a "Deep Color Output" setting, set it to OFF. Otherwise, if still no joy, you may need to add an HDMI extender/repeater from forum sponsor Monoprice if the HDMI cable length is > 20'. You can test this by setting the BDP source video to 720p or connecting the PJ to the AVR with a 6' HDMI cable.

The model number of the Panasonic Blu-Ray player is DMP-BDT110. Also, tried turning the deep color off and it still doesn't work going through the DENON. Any other ideas or help would be greatly appreciated. This stuff can be frustrating. Thanks.

Tried changing to 720p or whatever that suggestion was earlier without any luck. Any other ideas? Are there Blu-Ray players that are known to be fairly issue free with regard to HDMI handshake? Maybe I will just buy a new player? Thanks.

Ok. Any other suggestions? Ideas? Nothing is working except for just hooking the BD player up directly to the PJ. Thus no sound. Guess I'll have to try a new BD player? Any ideas for a cheap/good unit without HDMI hand shake issues?

One last shot at giving someone a shot at helping me figure out this BPlayer issue. Anyone? Thanks!
Get rid of the Denon and keep the bluray player. No more hdmi handshake issues.

Please explain what the HDMI extender/repeater will accomplish. Thanks. And are Denon receivers known to present unneeded hand shake issues? Are they notoriously worse than other AVR's in this regard? Thanks again.

They are worse. I have called this out in other threads. Returning the Denon and buying another brand will solve your problems. No need to boost the hdmi signal, nor replace your other hardware.
