i have the audioquest peal hdmi leads right though my setup but now and again I do get a handshake issue which can be down to the hdmi leads but unsure how to sort that issue out as I would of thought they are good quality so unsure why I get a handshake issue .
i get no loss of picture just the input info bar comes up on the screen so somewhere in my chain of hdmi ‘s I think it’s the TV doing it but unsure without taking a hdmi out one at a time to test were it’s not communicating properly .
but they say that the hdmi cables need a couple of seconds to talk to the chain and I am using ARC so it might be this making the issue as it starts up TV , Av amplifier , Oppo one by one when pressing the Oppo power button .
But I have read that hdmi cable quality can be an issue with handshake issue and I’ve read that from AVS forums
I didn't comment on the handshake part of your post cos of the discussion on CEC/ARC but it's generally accepted that first thing to try is starting up your components in a different order with the first one to turn on being the TV. To do that your would first of all have to disengage CEC on all devices and then use the individual remotes for each item. Make a note of the order in which you do the turn on sequence.
You could also just try changing the input on your TV and then switching back to HDMI (ARC) and also checking to see that all your components are up to date on firmware.
because if I turn the Tv on first then the Av comes on next but no source but if I turn the Oppo on first then the Tv comes on then the Av
if I do not use the ARC then obviously I would have to use each remote control to turn on each source and I have 5 remote controls but not sure if the Yamaha Av remote control is a learning remote and how easy it is to control all sources
