HDMI problems

05-13-2006, 07:26 PM
i have a sony 50" sxrd and i have my dvr cablebox and oppo connected to it via HDMI. I have a problem with the Oppo and sometimes the cablebox where when i switch to either one via remote macro, the oppo doesn't show up on screen or i get white noise with the cablebox. i can get it back by cycling thru the sony tv/video button. i don't have a problem w/ the components tho.

i had the same issue with my sxrd. make sure the tv is on the input before turning the oppo on. it's the "hand shake" via HDMI that causes this. i went with components on my cable box/dvr and don't have issue with anymore. (i can't tell the difference in PQ)

sorry got that backwards. make sure the oppo is on before switching the input on the TV.

as for the cablebox...i went back to components.
