Just got my first HDMI reciever. Had old Onkyo for years and used with just component. With my Denon 887 noticed a 2 minute delay on getting video with HDMI input to output. Audio is instant. Compenent output is instant like my old reciever.
Is this standard on all HDMI recievers? any advice on how to fix this?

On my pioneer 1016 it's nearly instant... a second or two at most. My reciver is passthrough HDMI only though, don't know if yours is different. Could it be the HDMI cales cousing the problem? (poor connection) Or the components might not be getting the "handshake" properly for some reason.

The HDMI is instant when it has been powered on for awhile. The slowness comes when you first turn the reciever on. Did replace 2 HDMI and mad sure the connection was tight. Right now I am just tring to run HDMI from my bell receiver to the av receiver then output the video to TV. Simple pass though.
The order in which you turn things on can be important in the handshake. TV first, AVR second, STB last.
