Sony bravia 40" hd lcd gets picture but no sound from cable box
While I get a beautiful picture from the hdmi connection, I get no sound. I'm using an hd cable box from time warner. I purchased the hdmi cable to simplify connections and want to stay away from the three wire component cables

You will have to go into the settings of the hd box by pressing the settings button twice and then scroll down to "audio digital out". chances are that it is set to Dolby Digital. If you right arrow over you can then set it to HDMI. this should bring your volume back. Hope this helps.

Your PS3 working doesn't mean a thing for the cable unless you are using that cable for your PS3. I would bet you have a bad HDMI. They are pretty sensitive to being bent. Try replacing that first. The other thing to check is to first make sure you have the proper input selected on the TV for where you have the HDMI plugged into on your TV.
1.This issue sounds as though the TV connection circuit has an issue. 2. You have changed the DVR and the HDMI cables and you still have an issue with the video (pink screen) indicates a video circuit issue ( improper voltage or current) at the video section of the circuit. 3. This will require some troubleshooting by a qualified tech. 4. To make sure, try connecting another properly working LCD TV to the cable box or DVR an check.If you get a picture and sound properly it is the TV. 5. Usually a cable box is QA'd (quality assured) by the company and will not be sent unless tested 1st
Cable boxes have notoriously flaky HDMI outputs. I have seen No pic and no sound with their HDMI outputs as well as a host of other problems. You can try getting the cable box replaced; unfortunately I have seen multiple cable box replacements not fix the problem. The best solution is to leave the component cables connected; you're not losing hardly any resolution/picture quality by using the component instead of the HDMI. Solution #2: switch to a satellite provider. I rarely see HDMI problems with satellite boxes
make sure you have Tv on that particular HDMI input .I believe video 6 or 7 .if you do check menu make sure that input is not blocked. or you might want to try the component outputs of cable box and connect that to a component input on tv to see if that is working,,i have seen these tv HDMI input board bad..lets hoe this is not the case..
