BENQ 1070 not auto picking up HDMI signal


Standard Member
Very roughly set up my new projector last night.

Sky > HDMI > Cat6 > HDMI > Projector

The issue I've got is that I have to pull out and put back in the HDMI lead for it to realise there is a signal.

Anyone else experienced this? Is there a setting somewhere?

Yes I had the same problem. My solution was to:-

edit* ensure electrical gear is off or in standby
1. Turn projector on and let it start.

Once it's up and running

2. Turn on source, blu-ray, Xbox ....whatever and it should detect the signal no problems.

I follow this procedure every time now and it's never faltered again.
