I have the same problem with my 42PD6600. Spoke to the gents at Hitachi who tell me there is no automatic way to do this so you have to scroll manually to the correct source via the remote.

Tv keeps changing the source of signal after about a minute so if i am watching cable tv on hdmi it switches to a different input i.e. ext connection after about a minute. it keeps going through the...

You may be the proud owner of devices that subscribe to the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC for short). These devices, via the HDMI cable, can read each others needs. If a CEC supported DVD is connected to your HDTV and the player is powered on, your HDTV will automatically change to that input ( eg: HDMI 2). Conversely if your HDTV is on and you change input to HDMI 2 the DVD player will turn on.

You could try the "masking tape over the TV's IR eye" to see if there is any extraneous Infra Red in the room that might be causing the problem? If it stops check for bright or shimmering light bulbs or Compact Florescent Lights (CFL's)

Correct you wiring, color stream uses red, blue, green and they have to be hooked up correctly. the problem is obviously not in your tv or the DVD player.

No HDMi signal

I ran across this problem before. Turned out being a bad HDMI cable. The was one prong in the cable bent and caused the problem. Try a different cable first. Sometimes it is the simplest things that cause the problems.

Sharp television and panasonic cinema system with hdmi connection

Ok, here's the deal. You can have sound being putout from hdmi coming from one of those sharp units, but it just depends on how you are connected. If you are using a digital audio output, from the tv, it wont push out the sound the way that it should. You will have to downgrade to using audio composite cables to connect to your external speaker system from the audio ouputs, not the digital audio outputs. Its not designed to push out sound from an hdmi cable. The BEST way to have this setup is to run your sound directly from the cinema to the external audio source(leaving the hdmi cable in the tv).

If you have to keep on changing the settings and the tv will not store them then there is a fault with the internal memory of the tv. If you can return the tv or call out a competant technician. Hope this helps.
