How old was the BD player?
Signals the same.
But yes. A player having issues(laser being dirty. Misaligned) can cause issues where more "correct signal" is required than it can provide.
Meaning...your AVR wanted 100% signal. Most TV can survive on 80%.
In a nutshell...
For cables themselves...there is no 1.3, 1.3b, 1.4 or 2.0.
High Speed with Ethernet(which I don't think anything requires this one anyway)
"Automotive" HDMI (forget what it is called)
As long as it says "High Speed"...good to...
Try, just for fun, a different HDMI.Did you hot swap in the Yamaha? (Meaning...did you not unplug everything from the wall? As in, Yes...your TV and BD player were supposed to be unplugged from the wall to reset HDCP...That is in the manuals for the TV, BD player and Yamaha)
Correct. Change the settings to Bitstream. That could solve the problem.Then you get trouble shooting(would help to know the model number as a 2010 BD set up is different from a 2013).That depends on connection options the BD player has(to rule out...the BD player as defective) .
