Question about Sony Televison & Video
One of the HDMI inputs is not responding. There are 2 on the back that I am using. One for the cable box and one for the Sony DVD player. Both are brand new and I could see the DVD player at first...until I couldn't.
Here's the thing: when I switch the two cables I can see the DVD and not the cable box. This would indicate to me that it's the HDMI jack on the back of the TV and not the cables or the DVD player.
Am I missing something?
Ok i am assuming that when you switched the cables you only did so on the devices and not on the back of the tv. Am I correct on that? If so then you did not actually test the ports on the or the cables. It is cheaper to replace the cable than it is the port on the tv. I recommend taking each cable one at a time, ( remove the other cable completely during the test) hook up one cable to dvd player, then connect it to port 1 put tv on that channel and see if it works, now hook up that cable to port 2 while leaving it connected to the dvd player and change the channel and see if it works. now remove that cable completely and try the same steps with the other cable and compare the results. If it is a bad cable one cable will work on both ports and one will not work at all. If it is a bad port then both cables wil work on one port and not the other port. There is no need to use both boxes for this test due to the fact that in your original post you switched the boxes and a different one worked when you did.

I agree with your solution and you are correct in that you lose very little quality by using component instead of HDMI. there are A/V receivers that transcode HDMI inputs to component; as far as I know that's the only other option

I have a Sony Bravia model KDL-46s5100 that had the same problem. All HDMI ports stopped working. I don't know why this works but unplug the TV for about 30 sec, then plug it back in and hold down the power button on the tv for 10 seconds. Like I said I don't know why this works but it worked for me. Good luck.
