Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-V40XBR1 40 in. LCD HDTV
For ten (10) weeks, my PS3 and bravia XBR1 played nicely together. Connected via an HDMI switcher, I got exquisite video using my PS3 and a DirecTv HD-DVR. Suddenly, no HD video from the Sony XBR. I tried different HDMI cables -- no difference. Sent back the PS3 (less than 3 months old) and, after 3 weeks I received a NEW PS3. Connected it and got the SAME PROBLEM. Called Sony about wondering if it could be the HDMI port on the XBR, but they insist that if the HD-DVR works on HDMI, it's not the TV. Now, SONY is sending me ANOTHER NEW PS3. On a whim while I'm waiting for the return box, I connected it to the HDMI port on my 22" Gateway monitor -- 180p of gorgeous video. Service tech coming tomorrow to check out the TV. any suggestions ?
Please explain whether you are still using the "HDMI Switcher" or not. If yes, then that may be the culprit, however, as thorough as you have been, I assume that you have already thought of that.

Depending on the type of TV or content to be played, some video modes may not be supported. If a device that is not compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard is connected to the system using an HDMI cable, video and/or audio cannot be output from the system. Copyright-protected Blu-ray video discs can only be output at 1080p using an HDMI cable connected to a device that is compatible with the HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) standard.
The video output setting on the system will display as "Standard (NTSC)".
