Try 80mg per week for a month. See if that helps.

You might need higher estradiol. Check out this article.

Quote
... The researchers categorized the men as having low or high testosterone (below or above 300 ng/dL, respectively) and low or high estradiol (below 5 and above 5 ng/dL [50 pg/ml], respectively).

Men with high serum testosterone levels reported significantly greater libido than men with low level and those with high serum estradiol levels had significantly greater libido than subjects with low levels. ...

“Estradiol plays an important role in libido in men taking testosterone supplementation,” Dr. Ramasamy said, adding that this finding is similar to what was identified in a recently published study by Joel S. Finkelstein, MD, and collaborators at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The study, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (2013;369:1011-1022), showed that libido declines dramatically in conjunction with decreased levels of serum estrogen.

I suppose it's worth trying a smaller dose, 100-120mg ceratainly isn't going to work.

Again, some of the bigger name online docs have used lower dosages (< 100 mg/week). 
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements. Yes, low T and E.D. are usually medical conditions.  There are potential risk with HRT:  http://www.peaktestosterone.com/testosterone_risks.aspx.

Do you think splitting the dose from once to twice weekly would be of any benefit? Something like 40mg Tuesday PM and 40 Saturday AM.

I think more guys like the more frequent injections of cypionate over once per week.  Of course, no one can promise you a certain kind of protocol will work for sure, but it's worth a try?
