LA40A610 and PS3 and Onkyo 807 HDMI issues.

Hi guys

Been reading through a couple of forums and basically i've found that there is a firmware update that does sort out some HDMI handsake issues. The reason I need to do it, as I've just bought the Onkyo TX-NR807 AVR and when using my PS3 and samsung DVD playing the TV is having sync issues. The components work fine when directly plugged into the TV, but when i go via the receiver it looses signal and even sometimes has large delays detecting the receiver's OSD menu. I have the latest PS3 os installed. Also to note that when loading games and blu rays on the PS3 the panel comes up with No Signal for a few seconds every time.
I'm in South Africa and our local samsung site doesn't have firmware files.
My main question is, could my TV be the problem, as i've tried my PS3 on another receiver but using a projector, and there was no problems then.

Retrovega,

It's difficult to pinpoint the cause of the problem. Technically, any one of those three pieces of equipment could be causing a handshake issue, and then the variable isn't limited to that in that even the cables could cause an issue.

You might try calling the customer service center in your area to see if there is an update available, but it could, or could not, be the television.

Hey HDTech, i've found this file on the Samsung.com.au site and they have a firmware upgrade for the LA40A610A3F model whereas the model i have is the LA40A610A3R model. Do you know if this firmware will work on mine to?
To follow up, we did prove that the HDMI signal loss is caused by the LCD as i have another LCD, a newer model Samsung and the receiver works fine with it.

Retrovega,

Unfortunately, I'm not able to confirm that. The best bet is to call the Samsung Service Center in your region and inquire.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
