Default philips 40 plf4707 HDMI issue

Howdy to all. I have a 40" Philips hooked to a dish dvr vip 612 via HDMI cable. Issue is turn tv on-turn dish on - black screen with HDMI2 in upper right corner that never goes away and no sound. Work around is toggle to tv - then channel 3 -then input to hdmi 2 -then push sat button. Alls well till power down then have to fiddle through again. I'm guessing that for some reason tv doesn' see dish box in hdmi till it sees channel 3. Is this a TV issue or a dish issue or a hybred of the 2? Dish have tryed but haven't changed the issue. Thanks for trying to help. Tim in Southern Oklahoma

Thanks tkurkowski- no difference same black screen with hdmi2 in upper right corner that doesn't go away untill I toggle to TV channel 3 . software installed TVNB010_00_PF_xx91_BA.
I think I''ll just connect the dish with patch cables and forget this HDMI stuff. It may work for some me I'm not convinced Thanks Tim

One more question. What happens if you leave the dish receiver on, and cycle the TV off and then on?

what you have is a truncation issue. The TV will not recognize the input and 'handshake" properly with the stb. Try another device with HDMI to rule out the stb.(dish box)

Well, VCR/DVR is not HDMI equiped so I'll just fiddle it through. Thanks to all

My take on this new tech- Why can't us older non tech savey folks just have a TV and programing we can just turn on and watch. I dont care about HD -3D -or Smart. I dought I'm even getting HD

Hello I have a Philips 42PFL7432D and my problem is that neither of the 3 hdmi ports display video. No matter what cable, device or port combo I use. All devices and cables have been tested on another tv work fine. ( the tv reads unsupported format)
