Question about Televison & Video
I HAVE FIOS CABLE & A BRAND NEW 22IN. SENS FLAT SCREEN TV. THE TV WILL NOT WORK WITH THE HDMI CABLE BUT WILL IN THE A/V FUNCTION. AFTER A FEW MINUTES IT WILL GO TO NO SIGNAL IN THE A/V FUNCTION & THEN I CAN'T GET BACK TO THE A/V FUNCTION FOR A FEW MINUTES IT JUST DISAPPEARS OFF THE TV ANY SUGGESTIONS
You may not necessarily have anything incorrectly set up, but there are a couple of things that I would suggest trying.
First, you'll want to make sure that your TV is set to the correct input source. Some TV's will require that the input source be changed in order to display any signals from an external device, like your HD-DVR. This can typically be done by accessing the main video menu using your remote control.
According to information provided by the manufacturer, you should be able to change the input source for this model TV (Samsung LN46A750) by doing the following:
* Press the "Menu" button on your remote control
* Press the "Up" or "Down" arrow button to select "Input," then press "Enter"
* Press "Enter" to edit the "Source List"
* Highlight the signal source for the HD-DVR, and press "Enter"
Next, you may want to try updating the TV's firmware. In some instances, simply updating a TV's programming can eliminate any potential hardware or software conflicts between two devices. To update the TV's firmware you will need access to a computer and a USB flash drive. Step-by-step instructions and the firmware update itself are available through the following website:
Make sure to read all the warnings and disclaimers available though, as your TV may already have a more up-to-date firmware version than the one that can be obtained through Samsung's support page.
Should neither of these address the issue, you may wish to see if connecting your HD-DVR to a different HDMI input solves the problem. Much like computers, TV's have been occasionally known to have faulty inputs or loose internal connections.
If all else fails, I’d suggest contacting the manufacturer for further assistance. In many cases manufacturers are able to provide over-the-phone troubleshooting support, in addition to having access to a wider variety of possible remedies for hardware problems.
Hope this helps you out.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Probably a handshake problem with the cable box. It is common for cable boxes to have HDMI handshake problems. Hook the box up using the component cables and you should be fine

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.
