More on Mac Mini Repeated HDMI Blackouts with some Yamaha Receivers
Updated the previous OS X and Receiver notes and tips (including HDCP) with info from Yamaha user manuals (conflicting with some HDCP claims), notes on swapping HDMI inputs and test results with my 2012 mac mini (OS X 10.9.5) working with a RX-A3050 Yamaha receiver. (Also added FYI on another thread about HDMI problems from 3 other mini owners using Marantz and Denon receivers.)
