For us vidiots, could you explain what repeater error is, or tell me where to go (to find out.)

certainly - I would prefer to talk about vacuum tubes myself but here goes:
HDMI signals carry a "handshake" that must be satisfied at the point of termination that the device is an HD display -or the cable box (source) will not transmit the signal.
The latest generation of A/V receivers offer hdmi switching but they are not working on most HD cable boxes. This is the fault of the cable boxes and not the receivers. The newer cable boxes have updated software but for those of us stuck with certain cable companies - no luck.
So someone told me that the Anthem has a setting that makes it appear to the cable box that it is a display and therefore will pass the true digital signal right through.
how is that?
