Are you using an HDMI cable and a digital box from your cable/sat company?

HDMI supports 2 different audio formats and when using a box from your provider sometimes the tv thinks the other format is available and switches to if for a few seconds.
Try using a HD component cable, they have Green, Blue, and Red video with Red and White audio, if the issue is your TV switching between formats this should fix it.

Hi, I have a 32LG3000 HD tv with software version 3.47.1. I just bought a Humax FoxT2 HD free view box but when connected via hdmi to the LG tv a message briefly comes up on the tv saying invalid format...


I , would try using another ( alternative connection) from your humax , say the scart cable just to see if it , the humax is ok. then if tv has more than 1 hdmi skt try it too, if still not working retry upgrade firmware route

I have an LG 42LC2D TV with INVALID FORMAT ON HDMI2


I have had this same issue.

Problem your tv isnt true 1080p meaning it will not work however when you switch to componet cables goto menu then change the display settings to 720p or 1080i then your HDMI connection should work fine.

"Invalid Format" message


Hello,

This should help you. I think Chris Duckworth said it best. "sounds to me like your refresh rates or resolution may be set too high on the XP machine."

Go to this website to get the rest about setting up your tv as a monitor. Type invalid in the word search to get to the relevant section.

Can the hdmi cable cause promblems with tv turning off Toshiba 47 hd 1080p" regza. tv would not turn on for some time until i disconnect hdmi cable from cable box. thought tv was broken, maybe it...


Part of your message I cant really understand but if this helps you out at all, Try to get a new box from your service provider. I have been hearing other people having problems losing signal from HDMI enabled cable boxes, if it doesnt work then just try your standard Component cables, they can still output 1080p from an xbox 360 and thats better than the 1080i you will get from cable. Some TV's just dont keep the power flowing to the HDMI reciever for some reason or another. The component cables shouldn't give you any problems though. Good luck.
