My olevia tv is not sensing the hdmi input right away.
My olevia tv will not display anything when I connect my laptop to it via hdmi, it never has, so initially I thought it was a problem with my computer. Then I bought a PS3 and hooked that up through hdmi, TV still read "no signal", I got mad and left everything on, when I came back in the room about 2 hours later, it was working... It seems it takes quite a while for the tv to sense the signal. Clearly the people with Olevia did not know what they were talking about, first they told me to upgrade the firmware, did that, then some moron told me to make sure that I had a hdmi 3.1, because it won't work with the earlier versions. First, there is no 3.1 hdmi cable, it's 1.3, and even a 1.0 should work. The HDMI cable works, I tried it on another tv, with my computer and the playstation. Any ideas about the TV and how to fix it?

Re: my olevia tv is not sensing the hdmi input right...
HDMI has to be able to communicate with each other. In most cases the HDMI issue is with the device connected to the TV and not the TV itself. If you did firmware upgraded on the TV then the issue is with the laptop. Try the laptop on anther brand of TV and see what happens.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

have you tried connecting ur laptop via hdmi to tv? if it works you should probably check tv settings for hdmi, if not then it is possible that the hdmi controller from tv to have some problems, i had a similar problem with a philips tv and took it to service ending up in a total replacement of motherboard and led display
They both will need to have hdmi ports so that you can run a hdmi to
hdmi cable between them. If not, you will need some type of adapter
that connects between them.
Once you have them connected turn the
tv on and press Select Input from the Remote and Select HDMI as the
input (If you have vga connections there might be a PC or Computer
connection for it).
Reboot the laptop and the video should be on the tv.
The video will show on most systems when you
reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit
the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the
correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key
will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.
Do you have a High Definition cable/satellite reciever or a Blu-Ray player? Does your tv have a HDMI input or component or DVi or all of those? Most newer HD components use the HDMI connection. The HDMI connection is a single cable that has both video and digital audio together. The component connection is a connector with three rca jacks that are red, green, and blue. Audio is connected seperately with this connection via red and green rca audio jacks or a digital audio connector. The last is a DVi connector that is found on computers. Some older HD tvs and components use this connection. There are adapters available to turn a DVi connection into a HDMI connection. So if your TV does not have a HDMI connection but your HD reciever does you can use and adapter but you will not have any audio this way without using a seperate connector for the audio.
Try turning both pc and tv off and connect, then turn both on. Also, make sure your Display setting are correctly configured. Goto Control Panel, Display and click on Settings Tab. If your still having trouble. Try changing your resolution and make sure that you have your TV to the right input. My TV has 4 HDMI 3 RCA 2Component 1 Digital Optical many USBs...can get kinda confusing. The connection should be numbered. Switch inputs with your remote til you get the right port. Then work on getting your pc to display correctly. Set your aspect ration to 16:9 first. Most tv and laptops are set this way. GOOD LUCK let me know how it goes.
Hi beelzyboob.. try checking these.. since you are using the RCA (composite cables) and I assume you have them on the "DVD in" at the back, go to setup, go to input assignment and go to hdmi input. here, make sure dvd is set to" ----". Next, hit return and go down to component input and also check if dvd is set to "-----". With these settings, you should get video. This is because you are not using either an HDMI or component cable. hope this helps.. ^_^
When an HD cable box or satellite receiver is connected with HDMI, the information banner
in the corner of the screen does not go away when the TV is on that input.
The Plasma Display automatically selects an appropriate screen size when video signals are received from a connected HDMI equipment. The TV's attempt to
search for aspect ratio information through the HDMI connection can cause the information banner to stay on the screen, if the data is not found.
To turn off the Auto Size, please follow these steps:
1 Press HOME MENU.
2 Select (Option). ( / then ENTER)
3 Select (Auto Size). ( / then ENTER)
4 Select (OFF). ( / then ENTER)
