Non - HD channels scrambled

12-07-2007, 09:22 AM
I have FIOS and a Plasma HD TV. Recently when I turn on the TV, all my non HD channels come in scrambled and Pink while my HD channels are perfectly clear. I had Verizon change out the cable box, bought new HDMI cable and still have the same problem.
All channels work in Component connections and if I unplug the HDMI cable and plug it back in, the channels come in clear.
Any ideas???

Sounds like a HDCP handshake issue. Have you tried connection with component cables?

All channels with the Component cables work fine. How could it not work only with the HDMI connection? I changed out the HDMI cable and same problem happens.

For an explanation of what's happening, google "hdcp, wiki", or go to wiki and search for HDCP.
