I have had a KDS-R60xbr1 for 2.5 years or so. It has 2 HDMI iputs. I have my "Dish" DVR HDMI connected to video6 and a HT/DVD to video7. Last night, coincidentally, BOTH 'shutdown", (I may be wrong but..) as this is not only hardware solution for combining audio/video onto one 'highway, it's also a software PROTOCOL. Fortunately, component inputs(YPbPr) saved the day for watching NCAA tournament play. Is there some way to "RESET" these ports, After all it does have iLink/Firewire and Usb inputs. Won't surprise me if today TV techs come to service with one of these plug it in and " voila'..all fixed....thanks that'll be $500.
I had the same problem with the HDMI connected to my HD cable box DVR. We called the cable company and he changed the box and the problem remained. He said there was something wrong with my TV. The component (5-wire) jacks on input 5 work fine. A few months later i got the 'green tint" problem and the tech came out to replace the whole optical box. I asked about the HDMI problem and he said that the Sony protocol for HDMI is the problem. It will "talk" to some hardware and not others. He has not found a fix, except to use the other A/V inputs and abandon the HDMI (#7) input.

If the TV works fine with other sources the problem is the HDMI output is not enabled on the BD player. Most BD players do not output both HDMI and composite formats simultaneously. Check to make sure the HDMI output is selected on the BD player and the TV. This information is in the manuals, read the book.
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...
It may be a problem in the TV but can also be caused by a poor RF connection either at the back of the TV or the satelite receiver. That of course would not be an issue if you are connecting your satelite via a composite or component or HDMI input.
The Digital video in this unit bypasses all the processing and is shot directly, so that narrows it down to the processing circuitry that the analog signals must pass through to get to the optical block. The AU board in this unit has given me issues before, so it would be my first guess. It could be the UU or the B2, but the only bad one I've had with these boards was due to water damage, so I doubt that it is the problem.
The AU is located behind the UU (the one with all the connectors). Part number A-1217-798-A. Good luck.
On your TV set remote are you selecting the proper input; for example when you have different devices connected to the back of your tv set, dvd player, vcr, cable box etc; you have to tell the tv which device you want to use by selecting the right one on your tv remove input selection. Hope this was any help.
