I have a Yamaha receiver, and I was never able to get it to pass
through the HDMI signal from my mythTV box (with any of several
different nVidia graphics cards) without severe distortion in the
image.  The TV is 1080p natively, and I run at 1920x1080 resolution,
but the display is all messed up when I run the mythtv through the
receiver.  Connecting the mythtv directly to the set works fine, and
running the HDMI output of both a Blu-Ray player and an HD cable set
top box also works just fine, it's only the mythtv system which has a
problem.  I was never able to figure it out.
