I'm the buddy from the greenline post. What's happening is if I switch inputs (I'm only using two, one for a dvr and one for a dvd) the screen goes blank. Both sound and video are gone. The TV says "no input". If I cycle the power the input that I just switched to comes on. If I switch back to the other input the same thing happens. I have to cycle the power for the video and sound to come back.
You don't need to reset the processor if you connect to the receiver in your browser (assuming you have it connected to your network although, if you're only using two inputs, it shouldn't take too long to reconfigure.
If you're using HDMI, bypass the receiver and find out if they work flawlessly all the time (a day should do, as a time period. If you're using baluns because the distance to the TV is farther than HDMI cables will go, check the output resolution for the DVD player- is it BD or DVD?
Did you check the output resolution settings for the DVD and DVR?
Make sure you set the Input and Decode to AUTO, in Input Setup. Also, in 'Input Setup', click on Video when you're using the DVD and the DVR and make sure it's not set to 'Source'. You need to do this in each, separately, because it's source-dependent.
The most important thing to remember- don't look at or consider all of the possible configuration areas at one time- think as if you have mental blinders and just ignore anything you're not dealing with at the moment. IMO, a lot of the manual could be left out and posted online in a separate section so it doesn't seem so intimidating. I don't care if it's a seasoned pro or a first-timer, nobody wants to read a 125 page manual from cover to cover.
My buddy is having problems on a new 4310. Whenever he switches input the TV goes blank then says no signal. His TV is a vizo, not sure of the model.
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
Sounds like the input assignment wasn't done. Out of the box, it isn't set for any kind of input. If he presses the Menu button, does he see that?
