Had a Sony Bravia for a few years, was just running on component cables in the begining. Switched to HDMI cable, but the tv won't pick up the Uverse box signal from the HDMI port at power up. Box is on but TV not picking it up. Have to change source to component 2 (where it won't pick-up anything because nothinng connected) then switch back to HDMI and then will work. Pain having to do this everytime we power up.

Don't used the Blu Ray player on the tv HDMI out put hub.Used the connections for of the Blu Ray player connections by a S-Video cable for the video and the RCA component cable R,W for the connections for the audio out.The high Def.cable box will not work for high Def. this way,but the Blu Ray player will.
You could see if they will exchange just the unit and save both of you the hastle of checking and repackingit all. It does sound like the unit is faulty. Or if your Bravia has more than one HDMI input then try on another, or a friends tv if you know some one with a HDMI tv in working order.
HDMI compatibility issues continue to plague the industry and this more than likely is the problem. There are a couple of ways around this.Some people insist on "hot rodding" the dvd and tv by hooking up directly to each other avoiding the receiver all togeether (I do this).But you lose functionality and it makes things more complicated for other family members. Your best bet is to use RGB and Digital audio cables.You won't notice any quality loss and there is a possibility it will look better.
It is related to the tv, modern tv's have the ability to control different devices through the infra red pick up on the tv, and pass it through the hdmi cable back to the component.
Sony call there remote link Bravia link.
Check your manual for that, If it doesn't tell you anything, then don't worry about it, if it is in the manual then see how to switch it off.
use component outputs of that unit to play on tv.Or use component or video output of sony unit and connect to cable box if available and use the source switching on cable box to change sources that way you wont have to unplu HDMI cable..By the way HDMI has a new challenger in the near future called ' DISPLAY PORT' ..
