Hi Joe, thx for the tip, i will try it tonight.
I've also been advised to try a different hdmi cable, because backwards compatibility is possibly not all its cracked up to be.
so i'm now buying a mdisplayport to hdmi and hdmi convertor so i can try my old cables.
the avr is only one side and (apparently) it has the latest updates, my ancient TV also doesn't get it .
Again, thx for the tip! will keep you posted.
