I just purchased a receiver and tried to hook up my Direct TV and Blue Ray player to the receiver - I got many problems trying to do this. Here is the list. Before I started I had my Direct TV and a DVD/surround sound hooked up straight to the TV with HDMI - Everything worked fine. _______________________________________________________________ Direct TV receiver (HR24-500) to Pioneer receiver (VSX-1021) via HDMI Sometimes sound - Never picture, screen is black - Pioneer always says HDCP ERROR Direct TV receiver works with HDMI to Vizio (VF551XVT) when bypassing Receiver _______________________________________________________________ Sony Blu-ray (BDP-S580) to Pioneer receiver (VSX-1021) via HDMI always sound - never picture, screen is black - Pioneer does NOT say HDCP ERROR Sony Blu-ray does NOT work when bypassing Pioneer - no sound and black picture. ________________________________________________________________ When I hook both Sony and Direct to Pioneer and switch back and forth with Pioneer remote - Neither work - Pioneer always says HDCP ERROR ________________________________________________________________ Things I have tried to fix it... Tried different HDMI cord Unplugged everything waited one hour plugged it in and restarted Tried turning on the TV first then the Pioneer after another restart Hooked everything up using Component analog video - It works BUT the picture quality is awful - If this is what I am going to be stuck with I will just return the blu ray and hook everything back out to the TV with HDMI What am I doing wrong??
