We have been using the HD connection thru our cable box only without HDMI cable. It has been working fine. We tried to attach the HDMI cable and we are getting frequent blips in the screen on any channel we try to watch. The screen goes black for a couple of seconds and then comes back. Any suggestions on what we should try?

Re: HDMI Cable Connection
Could be three problems. Number one it could be the cable it self faulty hdmi. Problem number two could be the connector on the back of your cable box wiggle cable there if you get the blips you found your problem. Third could be connector in the back of set wiggle there if it is loose you would have to replace that board in tv set that hdmi connection is on. One of these should get you to what you need.

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.
The first thing you need is the HD tuner. Since you stated that you changed the cable box I will assume that means it's HD ready. So you have HD signal coming in to the cable box box by-way of a coaxial cable. Now you need to get that HD signal to the monitor. For this connection the standard coaxial cable normally used between the TV and cable box will not do the job. How many connection options you have depends entirely on the what is available on the monitor. Normally there are three choices. Your monitor could have anyone of these, a combination of them or none if it's not HD ready. They are Component cable, HDMI and DVI. Component is a combination of three RCA type (red, blue, and green), connectors. Simply connect the "Component Out" from the cable box to the "Component In" on the monitor. HDMI cable looks similar to a computer monitor cable but bigger. Same goes for this one. Connect the "HDMI Out" from the cable box to the "HDMI In" on the monitor. An indirect connection can also be made if your monitor has a "DVI In" jack by using a cable that will allow you to come from the "Out" connection of either the HDMI or Component on the cable box to the "DVI In" on the monitor. If you are unclear about anything or you have any other questions please just ask and I'll try and help out.
Everything I've read on the web says cable box to tv connection must also use component (rgb) cables. The error is coming from the cable box (STB). All the Scientific Atlanta (SA) cable boxes seem have this Digital Rights Management (DRM) bug and the only way to be totally rid of the error is to replace the digital connection from box to the TV with an analog connection.
the tv has a configaration that conveys the sets focus on both audio and video performance. full hd resolution of 1920-1080 pixels.
hdmi inputs allow connection of the generation of 1080p sources for the systems which offer 1080p outputs
Okay,i assumed this is what you have: HD cable box with HDMI cable connection to the Samsung TV. Listen careful as follow: First you want to make sure using the same HD comcast box with HDMI connection for our Samsung TV as well as your other TV.Be sure the other TV do received the missing channels from the Samsung TV.You must be SURE you have tested both TVs with the same HDMI cable with the SAME HD cable box. Now that you have confirmed the both TVS are using the same HD comcast box and the same HDMI cable but the connection that goes to the Samsung TV are missing some channels,at this point,use another HDMI connection behind your Samsung TV and see if you have the same problem.If so,please also try the left side of the HDMI connection and see if you could get the other channels. Let me know! solutiondoct
First check individually if they work ,then connect to HDMI switch ,then change the position of the switch if it is a manual switch or connect the cable to the dish and check the dvd works...............
It sounds like you dont have the right HD box. When connecting HD you will use an HDMI cable or a component cable consisting of 5 cable total 3 for video two for audio. Coax cable is not used to connect HD to your TV / Monitor.
