HDTV Help please

12 posts in this topic

Have my new HD hooked up. When watching a movie earlier this week it would blink on and off and loose signal on HDMI2. I thought it might be the DVD player. Well I connected my new XBox to the TV yesterday and it did the same thing. Tried it in HDMI1 and same thing. Used a different cable and same thing. When you turn it on it will last for a while and not do it, but then it does it quite often. Any idea what it might be?

Do you have any other devices plugged into it? My only thoughts so far would be an auto-switching feature, it might be cycling through devices?

Otherwise i'd call it defective...

the nice thing about hdmi cables, you can't really hook em up the wrong way. the first thing i would do is check for any loose connections. second, i would call the manufacturers 800 line. if that does not fix it, return it for a new one.

Try other ports on the tv. The components are next best after HDMI. The HDMI ports on the tv may be bad.

I have the Directv pluged in through RCA and the Wii through RCA and those work fine. I think it's just the HDMI ports.

If all else fails, just use the Component imputs, you won't notice any difference in picture quality.

There are alot of comments on the Direct Tv site you might want to read involving the HDMI conections.(If I read correctly that is what you switched to)I did alot of reading on the very same issue and when I had Ditect installed the installer said they were recommended not to use the HDMI connections because of all the problems. WTH new stuff and cant use the best connection!

After he left I made the switch and no problems so far,But wanted to let you know there has been issues!

I did see you are useing the RCA jacks for some of your connections. Alot of TVs have auto find on the input try turning that off if you can and manually select the input and see if that helps! I manually select mine.

most hdmi tv's use hdmi and a composite connection as the same input disconnect your composite/component connections and see if that clears things up.

example: on my tv I use hdmi 1 and 2 so in component 1 i have my x-box. I have to turn off my hdmi 1 device ( direct tv) then the xbox jumps on

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
