I've been reading about BDP to receiver via HDMI and the handshake issues. My question is how common do those of you who deal with home theater most of the time come across this?
My 13 year old Oinker has been having issues the last year or so with the left or right channels not working at times when watching movies. It usually acts normal after a few cycles of turning it on/off or switching between the different inputs. I know it's on the way out and that I'll have to get something else eventually. I have the audio hooked up via multi-channel and the HDMI running directly to the tv so I've never dealt with the video running through a receiver. In order for me to get another receiver with the multi-channel option is getting into big $ which I might not be able to swing.
I have also read that some receivers don't work well with certain BDP's when it comes to the "handshake".
Any thoughts on this?
