Re: Takes long time for X1 box handshaking to TV

Re: Takes long time for X1 box handshaking to TV

I've experienced the same problem with my Samsung TV connected through my Onkyo Receiver to my X1 STB. After playing with the STB settings--the Display Resolution--I found that 1080p often results in a distorted green screen with multiple trys before connecting clean, 720p will handshake and connect in about 20 seconds, and 1080i will connect in about 10 seconds. It's not perfect, but it's working. It also works better with the "TV" button on the remote, not the "Power" button.

rgr2nd, are you seeing the same connection latency when bypassing the receiver?

Nevermind....

This will work repeatedly . . . until everthing is turned off for a while. It's like something has to "wake up". I'ved just bypassed the Onkyo, reset the X1 to 720p, and it's working.

To be continued...

It APPEARS normal with the Onkyo bypassed, but I want to try again after everything is dormant a while.

Time on/off seems to be a major factor, maybe a power management setting...

You might have an issue with your Onkyo; I looked at the back panel and it appears to be an older model that doesn't have the HDMI connections my TX-NR626 has.
