If I had the issues some are having, I would download the latest firmware and reload it, then Hard Reboot after install. Then (unplug amp triggers) install each input one at a time, reboot, then continue to the next input. I bought the newest HDMI 2.1 and used it to test each input, then used it to connect the TV. It prove mine had a hardware problem.
Isn't it great that gov't can mandate rules on manufacturers, when those rules have not been proven to work? This is the rule, now you figure it out, HDCP
A VERY RISKY STRATEGY!
I would say don't reinstall firmware onto these processors unless you absolutely have to, especially if you are an international customer who would have to pay a huge amount to return it to Emotiva.
Too many cases of bricked XMC-2, RMC-1 and RMC-1L documented on this forum, just from installing official firmwares.
Each firmware install truly is a game of Russian Roulette and even though the incidence may be low, the risk is a very real one with a high price to pay. (Time, stress and financially)
XMC-2 (Firmware 2.2 - initally ok, now a few total lockups. Is the audio somehow better? Just louder? I now listen at a lower volume than previously (-25 to -30 vs -20 to -25 before updating)
7.2.2 System (In-ceiling down-firing "Top Middle" speakers as the X.X.2 , Subwoofer as mono LFE/centre output and sofa Buttkicker as mono left sub output)
Googling an error I found this thread. I seems to have the exact same problem mentioned.
Am getting an error “init OSD” on boot and device is all locked up. I have tried to pull the power plug and power cycle and it seems to boot up but then changining the inputs does not respond.
I got min in August as well so wondering if there was a bad batch of boards. Logged a support ticket on Friday but have not heard back yet.
I think a little more info would help, but I'll take a stab at an assumption.
When a source is paused, or if that source is an HTPC that is not outputting moving video, and "sometimes" if an HDMI input has no source connected, the processor will operate v e r y s l o o o o w l y and may take many minutes for one push of a remote button. It's called the Slow Bug. The processor can also get the slow bug other ways, but the paused-source version is common.
Is it only switching that fails? Do other operational functions work, like volume? Have you done an "empty box" cold boot? All inputs and outputs empty, nothing connected except the power cord. Which firmware is installed?
