Insignia DVD Player, Insignia TV, HDMI connection doesn't work

I have an Insignia Blu Ray player that I just hooked up to an HDTV from the same company (really Best Buy.) There regular AV cables work and I can watch DVDs this way, but I also bought a $30 HDMI cable and it doesn't seem to work. Any idea for troubleshooting options I might try? Both user guides (DVD and player) both say "turn on/off and unplug/plug in again," which did nothing. Thanks in advance.

    delgriffith, that's not necessarily true. CNET says good cables can run as little as $10:

Well a good hdmi cable should cost you over 100 dollars, so try a new cable. even though it looks like the cable is fine, it can be no good.

    well I always live by the credo that you get what you pay for...if you spend 2500 dollars on a 52 inch plasma tv, why buy the cheap hdmi cable...kind of defeats buying the ultra screen if the signal getting to it is ****.

I have red,yellow& white come out my dvd and only white & red plug in on the back of my tv how do i make that work and which source and channel i put the tv on


Red and White are audio, yellow is video. On the back of the TV there should be a yellow jack if it takes external inputs. There are two ways to connect your Blu-ray Player to your amplifier. Via HDMI output: Connect the player's HDMI OUTPUT to the corresponding INPUT on your amplifier using an HDMI cable. If your amplifier has an HDMI OUTPUT, connect that to the HDMI INPUT on your TV using an HDMI cable. See if these links help.

I continue to have to switch my HDMI cable between 2 ports on my TV because initally there is "no signal". But when I switch ports I get a signal. So is this a HDMI cable issue, port issue or my Insignia...


My best bet would be a port issue - see if another device will work plugged into that port. (Some HDTVs have a HDMI port strictly for Service and nothing else but a Technicians specified cable will work in this port, look at the Manual) Check to see if your TV is set to the same port as your connecting to. One will be HDMI 1, next HDMI 2 and so on, the input button on remote should switch from port to port, make sure port setting on TV is same as #port your connected to.
