HDMI Issue

I have a Directv Tivo HD receiver connected to a 50 inch Panasonic DLP via HDMI cable...or I should say that I did have that connection until yesterday. My picture turned pinkish and very bright and then just disappeared from the screen. I now have no picture on my HDMI input into the TV. I thought it might be a bulb, but I connected the HD Tivo to the TV via component cable and it works fine. Anyone ever had this problem? Any advise? :(

Could be a bad cable.Since it's digital it's either there or not,your picture that it is.Go buy a cheap hdmi cable from Walmart or somewhere.The name on the cable don't matter ar digital cables are equal,regardless of what you hear.If you experience the same problem with the second cable then it could be your tv or receiver.You say you have a directv tivo.Do you mean the HR10-250?If so directv will say its the receiver I'm on my 3 for various reasons,but the hdmi connection on my first tv was bad and not the HR10-250 itself.

Yes, its a HR10-250 from Hughes. I never suspected the cable could be an issue, but it does make sense to check that first. Hopefully, that is the issue and it can be corrected easily. Unfortunately, these are my only two devices with HDMI input or output, so if its not the cable, I may be stuck watching via component for awhile. But, I have decided I really can't see any difference in the picture between component and HDMI anyway.

Thanks!

I have the same sort of issue. HR10-250 hooked up via HDMI to a Westinghouse 42" monitor. If I switch resolution output on the 250, about 50% of the time the screen goes pink. I can fix it by either rotating through the outputs again or change the input on the monitor and switch it back to HDMI.

I believe it is some sort of synch issue.

Wow I had almost the same issue a couple of times yesterday (6/18), the program description turned pink, almost like I had lost the blue out of an RGB signal. (I know the signal is not RGB, but that it is what it looked like). I also hooked up composite cables and the didn't see the problem, so I physically reseated the HDMI cable a couple of times and that seemed to work. I have an H10 connected to a Samsung DLP system.
