I have my desktop connected to my receiver via HDMI cable, and my receiver is also connected to my projected via HDMI. When I turn on my setup, if I turn on the computer before the projector, the projector acts as if it is not receiving a good signal and the screen remains black and flickers green occasionally. If I turn on the projector first and then the computer, it works fine. Also, when exiting full screen when playing a game, it also acts as if it is not getting a good signal.

Any suggestions?

Usually means the computer has chosen the wrong output resolution based on what the AV receiver has reported.
This is probably too high for the projector, so it won't display the video.
Easiest fix is to usually turn the AV receiver off and back on again.
No permanent fix other than turning the devices on in the right order (or powering the AV receiver off and back on again when it goes wrong).

So there are no adjustments I can make in any settings anywhere? :/

I've never seen a setting to help with this.
If the projector is not on, the receiver reports it's maximum resolution to the computer.

I reduced the resolution on my computer, I think this may have helped. Thank you.
