So after much troubleshooting, I've come across an odd situation... 

 

The Setup: 

 

Denon AVR-X4000

Optoma HD25e (HDMI Zone 1)

Monoprice Redmere HDMI Cables (30 feet)

Old panasonic and Samsung TVs (HDMI Zone 2 via J-Tech HDMI Splitter)

 

So, I had a Marantz SR6006 that I replaced with a Denon AVR-X4000 for the additional HDMI zone.  The Marantz worked fine with my projector and cables.  When I plugged in the Denon, the main zone Optoma projector, I get nothing.  I've tested the HDMI ports with the other TVs on the same length mid-long-run HDMI cables, and they work fine.  I tried both HDMI inputs on the projector and still no results.  

 

So I thought the specific HDMI cable running to the projector might be bad (which is installed in the ceiling), but I plugged the projector into the J-Tech splitter and THEN IT WORKS.  

 

TLDR: My projector won't run directly off of the receiver's HDMI ports, but it will work when it first goes through a splitter.  

 

I've tried a lot of stuff, and I guess one option is to buy a splitter another splitter and just have it sit there with one cable plugged in, but that seems like kind of a sad solution when using high end equipment.  Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing the conflict?

 

Thanks in advance!

what resolutions are you using (guess 1080p). Try lowering to 720p and work from there. Ensure all "deep color" settings are turned off.
