Single HDMI Input. Need to connect several HDMI components
I own a 62" Mitsubishi DLP TV. It only has one HDMI input. Is there a way to connect several HDMI components? I purchased a device to be able to connect up to three HDMI components, however, I could only assign one component to the HDMI input on the television. Any suggestions?

Re: Single HDMI Input. Need to connect several HDMI...
Number 1 would be to connect the 3 Devices to a Receiver with 3 HDMI Inputs, So this way you get the HDMI Audio as well.
3 in and 1 out to the TV as you know.
The other way would be to get a Key Digital HDMI 3 to 1 Switcher.
I have used these a lot in the field on installs and they work Great.
They also have 4 to 1 if you think you might need more.
No programming of the piece you just plug in and setup your TV in the HDMI Menu and your other Devices. If they don't sync AUTO!
The Receiver would be Best I feel, Some let you assign 2 different Video and Audio sources at once.
Such as Video from a Game and Audio from a CD.
Hope this helps out!

The cable box signal on the components video have a too high refresh rate frequency, that is the reason for the lines. Use RCA cables or an alternative connection. Other solution is changing the display out settings for cable box (from PAL to NTSC etc.)
Your problem is in the streaming player. It is not keeping up and when an HDMI loses connection it will not auto find it again. To verify this take the Panasonic out of the loop and see if this fixes it. I love HDMI but it is touchy
blue screen means no video signal, if the source is on hdmi ensure the cable is rca or in simple audio video jacks which u will have to connect in the dvi input of the tv reason is hdmi means high definition interface and transmits by hdcp like the data of an internet meaning its digital platform which the tv can only process thru the dvi inputs or component y,p,b
Depending on the type of cabling your using the input may vary. If you are Connected using a digital cable such as an HDMI or component (y/pb/pr) cable then you want to set the TV to the HDMI or component input by pressing input or source on your TV. If this is connected using coaxial cable tune the TV to channel 60, 62, 73, 75, 3 or 4
Your right connect the HDMI output from the directv receiver to an HDMI input on your tv. Change the tv input to the HDMI input and it should work. If your tv does not have HDMI input then it should have component input indentified as red blue green connectors on the back of tv. This is for video only. Connect the red and white for audio using the yellow/red/white cable that was included with receiver. The red blue green cable is also included with receiver as well as the HDMI cable. Did this installer educate you on how to use your directv equipment. If you are paying for HD access but your receiver is not connected the an HD input on your tv then you are not getting what you are paying for. This should of been resolved during the installation. The installer either is incompentant or just did not care. Call directv and demand them to make their receiver work with your tv if this means a field supervisor tech being sent out to correct this.
I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.
