Unhappy Problems with HDMI video

Ok, so I just bought a Samsung upscaler, DVD-HD870 and am connecting it through the HDMI cable to my TV and zip, zilch, nada! I get audio through the optical cable directly to my receiver. But no video. The screen is just blue.

But here's the thing I discovered: I can play regionless DVDs through the same connection and they work fine. It's Region 1 discs that are giving me a hard time. I can play them via component connection but that's not what I bought the TV and DVD for.

By the way, I have a Maxent 42" set, the MX-42HPT51.

I have read posts about this problem about other Samsung DVDs. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!

So I called Samsung tech support today, and the 3rd person I talked to told me that my TV was not HDPC compliant, so I should then use the component cables to watch DVDs. I told him that's not why I bought a HDMI capable TV and DVD player. Out of an abundance of caution, I searched the Internet, looked at the TV box and called Maxent tech support. Lo and behold, all 3 state the HDCP compliance.

I'm returning the DVD tomorrow.
