Great forum! Im kind've a newbie when it comes to connecting components, but after speaking with a few ppl and doing some research I thought maybe it was time to go for it. im so preplexed, so any help would be appreciated Heres what I have: Sharp Aquos 37" full 1080i/1080p Toshiba SD6000 DVD (1080i capable) Marantz SR5001 receiver Rogers HD cable box Kef 3005.2 What I've done: The Marantz has 1 HDMI going to the television, with the cable and dvd(via HDMI) connected to the Marantz. Speakers are all hooked up to the receiver as well. What Works: TV - I can watch HD with the Kef's coming into play. Tuner - radio is good The Problem: DVD - when I switch the Marantz to DVD, and begin playing movies, i only get partial sound and picture - the screen actually flickers with a pink'ish screen. Trouble Shooting: I've re-checked all my connections - wires I've set my dvd to 1080i, and bitstream I've set my receiver on HDMI for the DVD I know both the DVD and HDMI cable is working b/c when I connect the DVD directly to the television, both work find (tv and dvd player). Is there anything else I missed Thanks!
