Format not supported while using HDMI input

While using HDMI cable to run xbox 360 on the Sylvania LC320SS9 I sometimes get the "Format not supported" message. I then change the input selection and then back to the HDMI1 or turn on and off the xbox until it recognizes the format. How normal is this error? The TV is new and I can exchange it if its broke. Is there a better way to address the issue?

Thanks,
Howard

SOURCE: PS3 (Pal) won't connect to Sylvania HD TV

I just figured it out last night - if you have used your playstation on an hd tv previously, it is set at the highest resolution possible - 1080p. You need to take it back to that tv, and go to display settings on your tv. If you select HDMI as they type of connection you'd like to make, it asks you what resolution your tv supports. In your tv instruction guide, it should give you this information. Check mark all of the resolutions your tv supports, making sure not to confuse 1080i and 1080p. After doing this you can take it back to your other television and it should work.

SOURCE: Need remote code for Sylvania 32" LC320SS9 for Dish controller

Please follow the steps below to program your remote control to equipment other then your DISH receiver:
Note: If you start this procedure and at any time and do not press a button within 20 seconds, the remote will end the procedure automatically. Simply start over again. Use the TV button for your TV, the VCR button for your VCR or DVD player. These Mode buttons are located at the top of your remote control.
1. With the desired equipment on, press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. 
2. Press the numbers 5-0-0 on the remote control. 
3. Press the Pound (#) button on the remote. 
4. Press and hold the correct Mode button until all mode button backlights illuminate, then release. 
5. Press and release the Power button on the remote control. 
6. Press the Up button once a second while pointing the remote at the desired equipment. If the code for the equipment comes up, the equipment will power off. 
7. Press the Pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. 
8. To verify the code works try several different functions for that equipment. 
We cannot guarantee our remotes will work all other devices. If this does not correct the issue, unfortunately our remote will not work for that device. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Let me know how it goes and please rate this solution

SOURCE: My LC320SLX Sylvania TV displays the message

You are getting that message becuase the MAC video resolution is too high for the TV handle, you need to lower your MAC video resolution to the native resolution of the TV, read your manual to find out what it is.

When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv


Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

While playing xbox 360 in 1080p mod, the screen frequently blanks


Most TV's have problems doing 1080p over component. Dial the Xbox back to 1080i. Make sure the big switch on the Xbox AV cable is set to 'HDTV' not 'TV'(common problem) If the problem persists, try plugging into different hookups, use HDMI (if your console supports it) or buy one of the HDMI adaptors from PDP or MadCatz if your console doesnt. HDMI will reduce the clutter and will make 1080p a reality.
