Re: hdmi issue

It worked for me after I upgraded the Philips TV firmware. It broke again stopped working last week.
Philips TV firmware - you can get it from the Philips website. (I suspect Direct TV issues a software upgrade and broke it again)

Re: hdmi issue

This may sound silly, but are you changing the channel to the HDMI channel (one of the AV channels)

How do I connect a Sony KDL55EX620 HD TV to a stereo receiver. I am using the HDMI cable from a DirectTV receiver. How do I get the audio to my stereo?

the audio comes out of the Direct TV reciever, OR Audio OUT on the television. Some TVs that take the signal HDMI, do not put sound back out, and in that case, sound signal must come from the reciever box.

Each component, like DVD of Blu Ray will need to have a signal wired to the stereo unit.

Can not get the listings for the TV Guide to load. The TV is connected to cable box and tuner with HDMI cables. When I contacted LG they stated that I need to split the cable signal prior to connecting...

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
The cable box signal is received from a round cable called coaxial cable. The guide is sent to the cable box through the coax cable. The HDMI cables sends the picture to the TV.
The Tv does not download TV guide listings , just the box does. That would be a cable company/box issue not a TV issue.
Some TVs have a built in TV guide for when you recieve signals from an antenna (not cable).
If thats what you are referring to don't bother .
Use the cable box guide .
If I have helped you with your issue please click accept.
If you have more questions you can still respond until this post expires,
I will reply asap

Connected to a sat. we have no sound when we put the T.V. to H.D

What cabling are you using? component? (blue red and green) or HDMI? if you are using component then make sure you also plug the red and white RCA cables in the "audio in" inputs. People commonly think that the component cables do it all but they only carry a video signal. If you are running HDMI through an AV reciever you may need to run an optical cable as well as most AV recievers (unless you buy top of the range) can only switch HDMI video but not sound.

Cannot get a connection with HDMI input

When the tv won't scroll to the HDMI inputs, it means that the tv does not detect a signal on those inputs. This either means the tv has an issue and can't receive an HDMI signal(very unlikely) or there is no signal being sent from the source(converter box) The first thing I would do is unplug all output connections from the box except for the HDMI output and see if this gets rid of your problem. If not, I would be more inclined to think you have a problem with your converter box than with your TV. You could also try using the HDMI ouput of a DVD player if you have one.

Says no signal when switched to hdmi when there is one.

My best guess would be that the resolution settings on your reciever are set too high(It's putting out an HD signal the TV can't display) Plug in through Composite or component the the box and resolve this through you Cable box's menu, then reconnect the HDMI cable.
