problems with connecting laptop/streamer receiver and tv need help plz

hi
i have a problem i think that it's because of hdcp.

when im connecting the laptop to the TV it works fine
the problem is when i'm connecting with the receiver i see the picture but sound is going out from 2 front speakers only and after a while i loose the picture too
when i'm connecting the streamer with the receiver to the tv i see the just the logo of the streamer and then on the screen i see "no signal"
and when i connect the streamer without the receiver directly to tv it's the same problem

i know that the streamer works fine and because tv doesn't work with it i can assume that we can remove the receiver from the equation.

i have hp envy 14 with hdmi output (supports hdmi 1.4)
HP ENVY 14 series | HP® Official Store
receiver is pioneer vsx-421
TV is LG 42le4600 firmware is updated
streamer is xtreamer sidewinder 1

thanks in advance

Set desktop resolution to 1280 x 720

For audio you may have to reconfigure the audio properties of the HDMI output....

Also not certain what equipment your referring to as the "streamer"

AVR - PIONEER SC 35 w PANGEA AC9 CORD
AC FILT - PANAMAX M5400
DISPLAY - PANASONIC TC-P54G10 54in 1080p PLASMA
MAINS + SURROUND - DIY w DAYTON PT2C-8 PLANAR MID/HIGHS + DAYTON 6.5 MIDBASS -
SUBS - (2) DAYTON 15" ULTIMAX
SUB AMP - ACURUS A250
HTPC - WIN7 ULT,INTEL I7 860,CORSAIR 800D,CORSAIR HX1000, 16 GIG CORSAIR,EVGA P55 MB, ATI 5970 VIDEO, ASUS HDAV DELUXE 1.3 w BURSON DISCREET OPAMPS,PIONEER BDRW, 3WARE 9650 w 4x CRUCIAL 64gb SSD's in RAID 0

the only configuration i saw in audio devise is to output through hdmi thats all and it didn't help

Re: problems with connecting laptop/streamer receiver and tv need help plz

Sorry I missed that info.... Ok looking at the specs of the TV it is full 1080p rated so it cant be an HDCP issue.
On the Sidewinder have you tried the composite output ? How does it look ?? It may require some configuration ....view with composite out to get to the menu settings and check.
As for the laptop>receiver I was suggesting a lower res to test .... does a lower resolution from the laptop through the receiver look ok??

Re: problems with connecting laptop/streamer receiver and tv need help plz

Depending on what HDMI audio driver you have running in the Laptop - try going into sound / playback devices and configure speakers for 5.1 (default is 2.0)
Even if its a 2.0 movie soundtrak you can select DOLBY PRO LOGIC ll as the surround mode on your Pioneer and this should give you 5.1 output
