Have you checked the HDMI cable is fully inserted (both ends)?  I had a 
similar problem with a 2-channel set-up: ended up the cable wasn't fully 
inserted: felt like it was.

Could also try swapping out the cable: over the years I've had various 
cables and couplers which just don't play nice in a specific situation 
-- not enough springiness or the pin is a fraction too short.  (Yet work 
fine elsewhere.)
