Question about Samsung DVD-R135
Hello, I appear to have some sort of compatibility problem with my DVD player (Samsung DVD-R135) and my HDMI Switch (Digiview 5 port HM501). My TV (a Sony LCD Projection Wega model KDF-60WF655) and the DVD player had been co-existing just fine, I was using the standard component hookup with them (I could not use the HDMI hookup as my satellite TV was using it and the TV has only one HDMI port). I purchased an Xbox 360 and in the interest of getting the most HD bang for my buck I went looking for an HDMI switch. Once the switch was in place the Xbox and the satellite worked fine but the DVD Player cut in and out almost as though there were a bad cable or connection. I have done the standard trouble shooting, i.e., replaced cables, swapped ports on the switch but no fix. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
All the best, Dan
Anytime your talking about a switch your talking about a temporary connection. The issue with using a switch is that for HDMI you want best quality and you will not get that using a temporary connection. The unit may be recognizing a weaker signal and turning the port off. However since the output on that particular unit is 1080i you should be fine using composite, just get a nicer monster set.
