Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-46S2000 46 in. LCD HDTV
I just bought a Sony 52" XBR5. When I hook up the Motorola cable box to the TV using the DVI-D to HDMI cable the picture and sound look great. After about 20 minutes to 1hr the picture goes black but the sound is still heard. The only way to get the picture back is to turn the tv off and back on. Tried switching boxes, cables and HDMI ports, problem still occurs. Never happens on the component cables.
Had a neighbor buy the same tv and his does the same thing.
Is it Motorola's problem is it Sony's problem. Not having alot of luck getting to a resolution.
Anyone else ever hear of this happening?
I think this has to do with the cable box not liking the encryption thing going on with the sony tv. The cable boxes probably don't understand it fully and therefore you have intermittant problems. I would just use component inputs. Which are analog and no encryption problems. I hope this was helpful. I bet it doesn't happen using a sony DVD Player or a blue ray DVD Player either. Sony, Sony, Sony.....Good stuff...but they have their moments. Let me know if u come up with a fix for this and then i will post it on my fix it list.. Thank you again..GURU JAY

You are not alone! After a week with my 3808 and Sony 52', and experience the exact same thing. Great picture then ..gone, with nothing but audio coming through. I am going straight to component which will still give me my 1080p and disc to display connection. Looked for days now on the net and am convinced there will be no detectable loss. Only maybe some of the features that HDMI connection can make. Saw somewhere that after October 2008, companies will have to list what they get with the newer better "HDMI ver" instead of just selling it to us as the latest.

We had the same problem. Called Sony and they advised there was a "Software Mismatch" and suggest using a newer set top box. I'm just going to use the component. You would think they could resolve this with a firmware flash or something. Hope this helped.
