Question about Yamaha HTR-6140 Receiver
I've connected a cable box HDMI output and a Blu Ray DVD HDMI output to the HTR HDMI input. The connection worked at first however after a few days, both device's HDMI output ports no longer output video. I've tested them by connecting them directly to the TV. The component video of both devices still work.
I believe the HTR HDMI "input" port is blowing up the HDMI output ports of devices that I connect to it.
I have replaced the cable box and am thinking about testing my theory by connecting it to the HTR again.
Has anyone heard of this problem? Is there a non-destructive way to test my theory?
I know this sounds stupid, but have you "toggled" or "played" with the HDMI cables? are they the same manufacturer? HDMI channel connections are very fickle. If just one connection is not exactly correct, they go to a limp, no go status. Since they run at such a minimal voltage, i can't see them "blowing" the outputs on the devices.however....if your cable has a serial type output for video only, I would connect the hdmi convertor to it and see if it works.
