Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/ HDMI-1 selected.
Setup the player (Phillips BDP7200). Went thru the Player setup menu and selected mostly "Auto" for most settings. The screen flickers when there is no disc in the player and when viewing a DVD. When viewing a Blu-Ray disc, it stops flickering. I'm using a Mitsubishi 60" DLP. I've selected HDMI-1 input. TV recognizes the input and prompts me to select the type of device connected to HDMI-1. I select Blu-Ray and exit with no problem. I have canceled out the player being bad by using it at my cousins house. The problem does not duplicate when using HDMI-2 on the Mitsubishi.
Re: Screen flicker when selecting Blu-Ray player w/...
Something to remember is that most HDMI setups on TV's have what is called a DVI/HDMI port, I would suggest not using anything on that port that isnot converted from DVI to HDMI. I bet if you look, that HDMI 1 on yours....

Your TV cannot reproduce 1080p resolution so go into the menu setup of bluray player and make sure resolution is on 1080i and not 1080p. I understand you will have to do this on another TV capable of 1080p or if your bluray player has a composite output (yellow single rca) then hook that up as it may be active at the same time into your AV in on the TV. Once you have picture, then you can enter the setup menu as I have indicated above. I hope this solves your problem.
Connect an HDMI cable from the DVD's HDMI port to an unused HDMI port on the TV. Select the input from the settings menu and name it DVD or select the DVD name. Turn the DVD player ON. Using the input select button on the remote, select the HDMI DVD input. Wait a few seconds while the TV and DVD player establish a connection. The DVD player menu should appear. Insert a DVD and enjoy a movie. Hope this helps. Regards.
try different type inputs on your TV- HDMI, component, composite
then look in the menu of your DVD player- with no disc in it- find "setup menu" then find "video output format"- select the one you are using on the TV, the options will be HDMI, YpBpr (component) , video out (composite)
You may be able the settings of your directTV box to stop frustrating you. If you help me identify the model you are using, I can research the proper menu choices you will need to choose to select the correct features. There are many different directTV set-top boxes available.
My own home theater setup did the same thing, and my solution was to use component cables from the PVR instead of HDMI cables. It is too bad your blu-ray doesn't allow for this configuration.
My work-around until I realized that using different interconnects fixed the problem, was to turn the TV off and then on again whenever switching from HD to non-HD sources. This fixed my problem, maybe it will fix yours.
If the TV works fine with other sources the problem is the HDMI output is not enabled on the BD player. Most BD players do not output both HDMI and composite formats simultaneously. Check to make sure the HDMI output is selected on the BD player and the TV. This information is in the manuals, read the book.
You need to use an HDMI connection from blu-ray player to the television. If your tv does not have an HDMI input the tv is probably to old and will not accept 1080P. If it does have an HDMI connection it should display a minimum of 1080i.
Go to menu. Select inputs. Assign input 1(or whatever input you connectedthe dvd to) as DVD. Then exit menu. Press the input key, scroll over to DVD. I reccomend using a component cable with a digital audio cable, if you do not have a DVD player that has an HDMI connection. You will find that a blu-ray player will be much more satisfying for the television you have. Basically by hooking up that old dvd player to that tv, is the same as hooking an 8-track to a $2,000.00 stereo. It will work, but the quality is going to suffer! Good luck, and believe me. It is worth the extra money to get a blu-ray player. It will play all your old dvd's and blu-rays. That way you are getting the full potential of your set.
For this unit and the addition of the secuity features of Blu-Ray, the 1080i you set can handle is through the component input from a DVD player or an XBOX. In the configuration menu of the PS3, change the resolution to 1080i and see if your set will reset to it. The 1080i on the Blu-Ray is only possible on the HDMI cable as far as I could find, again due to the security restriction. The Mitsu is not going to run it in 720p due to the PS3 is running component and cannot control sync to this set.
