I sustained a pretty good lightening strike a 6 weeks ago. My basement setup was affected. I have a 4x4 hdmi matrix connected to two DirecTV DVR's and a Vizio Blu Ray(VBR110). Outputs to three different Vizio TV's. a 40'. 50' and 70' hdmi run respectively. The 4th output went via a 4' cable to an Onkyo SR606 then a 25' run to an Epson 6500UB projector. Everything had been working great prior to the strike.
Two of the Vizio's had there hdmi inputs "blown", as did the epson projector. I had new main boards put in the Vizio's and bought a new Epson 8350UB, as Epson wanted more to replace the board then it cost to buy the new one!.
After reassembly.......Only one Vizio would fire up and I had intermittent problems on the others......eliminated the hdmi matrix, now direct from the BluRay or DTV to any of the Vizios will work fine. Also Direct from the DTV and/or Bluray to the Epson works great, but no sound obviously. And...HDMI out from the Onkyo to any of the Vizio's works fine.
Here is where I am stumped. Blu Ray thru the Onkyo will not put a picture on the Epson...It seems like it is trying, but no discernible picture. Sound is great. 25' 28 gauge generic hdmi cable. DTV thru the Onkyo to the Epson is better, but not watchable.
Starting with the simplest... I went to Blue Jeans Cable and bought a new 25' BJC Belden Series-1 cable. Now DTV works, tho with an occasional flicker. No change on the Bluray-onkyo-epson setup. It seems that the Epson and the Onkyo are not playing well together.
I can not figure out which equipment is my weak link.
I can not wait to hear what I have overlooked!
