Default JVC & HDMI connections

I have a JVC 52G886. I recently purchased a Belkin Pure AV HDMI cable. I connected the HDMI cable from my SA 8300HD DVR box to the TV. However, the connection appears to be bad as the picture and to audio cuts in and out every few seconds. I tried to make sure that the connections were proper but there is no difference. Has anyone had a similar problem and know how to correct this? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Default HDMI Dropouts

I am having similar issues with my 52G886. I bought a DVD player with HDMI that came with the HDMI cable and my HDMI signal cuts out a 4-5 times an hour. The TV losses sync and then the image comes back after a 1 second. I thought it was the DVD player so I exchanged it and the new unit has the same issue.

I can only hear audio on the TV speaker through the HDMI if I force the DVD player to convery the stream to PCM. I expected this but I thought the HDMI raw digital audio would have come out the TV digital audio output like the ATSC tuner audio does. When I am watching a DVD though the HDMI the ATSC tuner audio continues to come out the digital audio connector. Has anyone seen this?

My JVC developed a faulty HDMI board after two weeks of service. I also suspected the DVD player and replaced it with an identical unit. Same problem (no picture, just a green screen). I then contacted JVC and had to "convince" the CS rep that the TV was defective. JVC authorized a service call and the tech confirmed that the HDMI board needed to be replaced. I'm not happy with JVC quality. My first set was DOA on arrival. It's replacement has the HDMI problem... <sigh>

i am exchanging my HD DVR box today because I was having issues with it feezing up all the time. After I swith out the boxes, I'm going to try the HDMI connection again. I guess I'll see what happens.

Please let us know what happens. Was your HDMI freezing 3-4 times an hour for a couple seconds each time like mine?

If this issue is caused by the HDMI board I would like to get it fixed ASAP.

I changed out my HD DVR last night, and I still have the same problem with the HDMI connection. When I use the HDMI feed, the audio and video cut in and out about every 5 seconds. My only guess now is that there is either a problem with my HDMI or with the HDMI board on the TV.

Sorry you're having problems. I just got the 56G786 and am also using the SA8300HD DVR box (running Passport software) to the TV (with a GE semi-cheapie cable). I haven't experienced anything amiss with my connection. Some minor drop outs -- but I always got them on my cable system -- even on the older SA8000 DVR.

I've heard of some audio problems with HDMI so I am running a stereo out of the box into the JVC's HDMI audio inputs. This gives me stereo for typical viewing. For HT I'm running an optical out to the AV Reciever for 5.1.

Have you tried running just the Video through the HDMI and the separating stereo out?

Bruce, I will try doing that some time this week to see if it makes a difference, but I have a feeling that it won't. I may just buy a really cheap HDMI cable to see if that makes a difference. If that doesn't fix it, then I know it's the TV, which I already think it is. For now, I am just using my component video connection.

I've got a different issue. I have a Panasonic DVD-S77 hooked up to my JVC 52Z585 via HDMI. I have noticed MPEG blocks on the "wallpaper" screen and where colors should be blending on a DVD (the blue sky in Robots at the beginning). I'm sending the signal out as 720p (upconvert) and with 4:4:4 color (as opposed to RGB or 4:2:2) settings on the DVD player. Any thoughts as to what's causing the MPEG noise? When I get home I'm going to change the digital size setting on the JVC to see if that has any effect. It can only be changed if you send a 480p signal to it via HDMI, so I'll change my signal temporarily. I'll also call JVC to see if they know anything - though I doubt it.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I also have had an issue with the HDMI. Today, at JVC's request a service tech come to my home and reset the HDMI through the service menu. This cured the problem! So, no HDMI board replacement.

You may want to do this as well.

To access the service menu to complete this:

1. Press SLEEP.
2. Simultaneously press DISPLAY and VIDEO STATUS.

This brings you to the service menu.

3. Select #2 (SELF-CHECK) by pressing the 2 button on the remote.
4. Press POWER (this resets the settings including the HDMI).

Pressing POWER rests all the factory settings. Howver, it does not reset the video and/or audio settings you may have set through the MENU.

Good luck.

Excellent - I will do that! Thanks for the info - just wanted to see if it was or wasn't a related issue.

ikoiko...

I see you have the same DVD player as I do! How has it worked out for you? The only thing I slightly dislike is that they changed the thin-strip menus to full screen ones. Other than that, it's great, and it still uses the same codes as my other Panny players. Did you think it was odd that the remote has no Eject button?

Yes, the absence of an eject botton makes little sense to me. I've programmed another unioversal remote which does have the eject button! Overall, I like the PQ of this player. I had considered the NeuNeo HVD208 but felt that this served my purposes better. I have it hooked up to my TV via HDMI with optical sound to my A/V receiver. I also like how I was able to modify the blue light setting. Overall, a nice player.

BTW, your service menu access doesn't work on my 52Z585. I'll try the instructions again - do I hold Sleep while pressing the two other buttons?

Press the SLEEP button and, while the screen shows the sleep information, press the DISPLAY and VIDEO STATUS buttons at the same time. That will bring you to the service menu screen.
