- Scientific Atlanta 8300 HD DVR (cable box)
- Pioneer VSX-94TXH receiver
- Sony LCD tv (older model with DVI input
- Panasonic Blu-ray player
The receiver supports 4 HDMI inputs and goes HDMI/DVI out to the tv. This problem never happens when watching a blu-ray because the player is using HDMI to the receiver. I cannot use HDMI from the cable box to the receiver (I get audio, but no video), most likely because of HDCP maybe not supporting the receiver as a repeater or some stupid crap like that. I know that HDMI from the cable box worked at one point but maybe a firmware update changed that. In any case, this has forced me to use HD component cables to the receiver and that's where the problem happens, maybe due to interference. I did purchase a box that goes in between the receiver and cable box to try to remove this component cable interference but it's not helping.
Any resolution ideas would be greatly appreciated!
