Hello, Just tried to connect my new XBox Elite to a new 50" Zenith Plasma using HDMI supplied cables from XBox to HDMI input on Plasma. Input source is set to "HDMI" but does not receve signal from XBox. The Component cables do work, however. Thanks for any suggestions.

If you have an HD receiver you will want to use one of two types of
cables; you can use component cables which have five ends red, blue,
green, red and white, or you can use an HDMI cable which will have one
flat connection. If you have a standard definition receiver you will
want to use RCA cables these have three ends red yellow white. The
connections will be labeled on the television as well as the receiver.
Once you get this connected hit the input/source button on your TV set
if you're using RCA cables you want the TV set to video 1 or video 2. If you're using an HDMI cable then set the TV to HDMI 1or 2 using the input /source button. If you use Component cables set the TV to Y/PB/PR or component 1/2.
Buy a cable call an HDMI cable.Just connect one side of the HDMI cable to the PS3 HDMI port and the other side of the HDMI cable to the tv HDMI port.Than use the remote,push the button said INPUT goes into modes 1,2,3... so on to find out which one the PS3 game system is on.
This could be an HDCP "hand shake" problem. Try turning both the TV and the connecting device off, connect the two using HDMI, turn both of them back on, select the proper input and see if you get a picture. If nothing happens try the other HDMI inputs by following the steps listed above. I hope this helps.
See the following Thread for more information about problems with the Pro-Ro6u.
The connection order can be a key issue as to whether or not the HDMI
signals will pass through the system. For best results the receiver
should be turned on first, then the source device(s) and then the
display. The reason for this has to do with getting the equipment to
handshake properly for the HDCP protocol.
If HDMI video will not pass through your receiver, you may with to just connect the xbox using the component cables. Since component will pass through 720p and your TV is 1080i you should expect the same qualtiy and a more crisp picture.
