COULD IT BE THE DIRECTION OF THE CABLES OR THE EXTERNAL SAMSUNG HDMI BLACK BOX IS FAULTY?OR THE BLURAY INPUT ON THE AMP? I CANT SEEM TO DETECT THE PROBLEM
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.
Hello, Yes in order to narrow down the problem you will want to first connect the Blu Ray player DIRECTLY to your TV and see if the same issue happens. This needs to be done in order to rule out the Denon as being the cause of the problem. Your next step is to replace those HDMI cables with brand new ones- I would never purchase a used HDMI cable, as they're digital and can go intermittent causing problems like the ones you're having when they are bad. Since none of the cables are new, it very well could be any of those cables. Also is there anything else connected to the Denon (like a Sky Box, Humax box, etc.) that DOES display clearly on the TV without that distortion?

NOW I WILL TRY PUTTING THE BLURAY PLAYER INTO ANOTHER INPUT..
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.
No problem and thank you for the reply. Do try another Input on the Denon and as a last resort we can also try resetting the processor of the Denon to see if this helps clear things up. Let me know what happens.If you need further assistance let me know. Please do not forget to click at least a 3 STAR RATING, at the top of the page for my efforts.

OK THANKS ILL LET YOU KNOW.
ONE THING I HAVE NOTICED ABOUT USING THE DVD INPUT*ON THE AMP) - WHEN I PRESS "INFO" ON THE TV REMOTE, THE RESOLUTION SAYS 1920X1080, WHEREAS IF YOU USE THE BLURAY INPUT(ON THE AMP), IT SAYS 1920X1080.
THE MANUAL SAYS ALL INPUTS SHOULD SUPPORT 4K UPSCALING.
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.
I'm not sure what you're saying- you posted the same resolution for both inputs.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
SORRY WHEN IN THE BLURAY INPUT IT SAYS3840X2160, BUT THE OTHER INPUTS ITS 1920X1080
Expert:  Aric replied 1 year ago.
