I recently did an installation with a Pansonic LCD and Panasonic BluRay player connected through an Onkyo 607 receiver. He e-mailed me the other day and said that when he switched to BluRay, the TV displays static which flashes on and off. When both components are powered on while the Onkyo is on the BD input, it works fine, but changing of the input starts the symptoms. Could this be a problem with VieraLink? Or worse, if it’s not getting the “handshake” over HDMI, how can I fix this?
I would recommend ALWAYS turning VieraLink off, on both the TV set and the Blu-Ray. Have the universal remote control the input switching. My experience has always been that these PROPRIETARY HDMI-CEC control options do nothing but cause problems!
