You didn't buy a v1.4 cable as there is no such thing. Hardware is rated 1.3 or 1.4 cables are either high speed or not. Are you going via an amp or straight to the PJ from the Apple TV? I have a similar problem with my ATV and PJ it shows when I set output to 1+2 on my amp (I have 2 HDMI out) but only when both the TV and PJ are on so not possible???? But when it's just output 2 nothing shows on PJ?? This is despite changing out put settings on the ATV to 720p 50hz (my PJ is 720p).
I am assuming as yours is 1080p it must be some sort of handshake problem on one or the other. Make sure the firmware is up to date on ATV and PJ it could be that.
