When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

First off a little tip that manufacturers don't tell you is that you HAVE to TURN OFF the POWER to ANY UNITS that you are Connecting to via HDMI!!!!!!! If not you can short out the Inputs!!!!!!!! HDMI is usually Automatic, But sometimes you need to go into the Menus on all Devices to the HDMI section and write down their settings and compare them. Any definition that you are not sure of check the Manual or Google it! Match all the Settings (there won't be Much!) Hopefully the Inputs were not Damaged it only takes one time to short it out and then the Repairman makes a few bucks! Good Luck!

I had a similar problem with a Mac Mini. The problem was caused by a mix-matched resolution (the Mac tries to use 75Hz refresh rate, TV expects 60Hz). The best solution I found was to remote into the Mac (I used LogMeIn.com) and change the resolution on the Mac from a remote computer until the image appears on screen.
Process: 1) Connect Mac to a normal monitor and install the LogMeIn server (or other VNC type application) 2) Connect the Mac to the TV 3) Connect to LogMeIn from another computer (preferrably one where you can see the TV) 4) Go to Applications / System Preferences / Display 5) Change the resolution to your TVs native resolution, and change the refresh rate to 60Hz

The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio
and uncompressed digital video and audio from an
HDMI device or uncompressed digital video from a
This input is designed to accept HDCP program
material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-
compliant consumer electronic devices (such as a settop
box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).
The HDMI input is designed for best performance
with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.
To connect an HDMI device, you will need:
• one HDMI cable (type A connector)
For proper operation, it is recommended that you use
a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter
difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable
(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
