Panny DLP w/ Harmony Remote Question

03-30-2005, 08:03 AM
I just recently bought a new Panny 50 inch DLP, along with a Harmony remote which starts everything (including my HD Tivo & Yamaha receiver) with one button. Works perfect most of the time, but on fresh start-ups, after TV has been off all night, everything is powered up, but I get no picture on the TV. I have to manually turn the TV off and restart it...then I get a picture. I have checked to make sure the "input" is set properly (to HDMI)...it is. Is this a TV problem, or perhaps a missed signal coming from the Harmony remote? I would think that if it were a missed signal from the remote, I would experience it more often than I do...only happens when TV has been off a long period. Anyone else experienced this issue?

This is an HDMI copy protection issue. Your TV must be turned on & 'awake' before the HDMI devices are powered up, so it can answer the 'trustworthiness' dialog. Make sure your TV is first on the list to get an 'on' signal, and insert a delay before hitting the others..

Any idea why it does it sometimes and not others? You would assume the Harmony Remote issues the commands in the same order all the time.
