WOW another person that kept the rd-kx50, Welcome brother or sister to the fold..lol.
I had that problem a couple of times, I just remove the hdmi cable while the tv and recorder are off, and then connect it once it's back on. It's a pain to do this, but you could just use the component cables and not worry about the issue (at a slight cost of picture quality)
with Denon you have to go into the menu and "assign" the inputs.
You have to select if you are using HDMI, s-video composite etc.
If your unit has upconverting remember that it will upconvert a s-video signal to HDMI but not the other way around.
HDMI is a digital signal composite, s-video etc are analog therefore you could not use the HDMI output from your PS3 but then use the red, blue green composite outputs from your receiver to run to your tv.
If you have different input options on your TVs, you could run the second TV with the Y, Pb,Pr component outputs along with the analog audio from the STB. However, remember the STB will only support ONE output video format. So both TV will have to be set to the same video format (720p, 1080i, 480p, etc)
This happened to me many times with my Sharp 40" LCD. I am actually running 2 tvs of of 1 HD Tivo. One in the bedroom with HDMI and then through the wall into my kitchen tv via Component. ( yes whatever is on in the bedroom plays in the kitchen).. So this AM my power dropped out for a few seconds then came back on. When the Tivo rebooted I got that " hdmi connection not permitted" message. In the past, I would just reboot everything and all would be ok.. But today I couldnt get the tv with the HDMI to display the programming. It would show the tivo menus, but when I tried to play anything or watch live tv, the message would pop up again. The kitchen TV with the components was working the whole time... So finally I rebooted the Tivo one more time. But this time I left the HDMI cable unplugged from the Sharp in the bedroom untill the Tivo was fully booted and a live channel was playing in the kitchen. I then plugged the HDMI back into the bedroon TV, and it came back on. Im not saying this will work for you, But its worth a try
1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo
2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.
3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
Most likely your HDMI card is defective. If you have a free component spot on your tv, use component. You'll get the same great picture as HDMI, just have to use 5 cables instead of 1. You also won't have to deal with the annoying HDCP problems and HDMI. If you do not have a free component slot, make sure your HDMI cable is securing (don't push hard) in the HDMI connector on the tivo and on the tv. Also, check your video settings to ensure they aren't cranked up from the factory, but 99% of the time, it's the bad HDMI card in the unit, which can be repaired. I recommend ccs corp in Indiana, I've used them in the past and they're great.
I have the EXACT same problem with my Sony SDM-P234 23" HD/computer monitor. I know it works (and it works great) with my DVico PCI card with my computer. It outputs in 480i, 480 p, 720p and 1080i with clarity on a simple indoor RCA HDTV antenna. I get the same quality (1080i) picture for the same three seconds as does lewy. I can also add that the digital coaxial output delivers 5.1 audio to my amp and it stays on even after the picture cuts out. Please help.....Comcast sendsa 'technician' out to service it and...well....did I say he's a 'technician'? He changed the box twice and says it must be my equipment. I guess its an act of God that it works with anything else.... I mean....its been checked out by a Comcast 'technician' after all.
