Re: HDMI Cable problem
Well, first you might want to try another hdmi connection behind your TV.If it appears to have the same message,you need to check your TV setup and be sure the HDMI video is active. Secondly,go with the recommendation of the set top box.You will use component video cable to connect from your set top box component video output(Y PR PB) to your TV (Y PR PB) and see if that actually work.If so,just use the cable box for the time being and call your cable company for another cable box to replace this one! solutiondoct

Question. Are the scrolling lines horizontal?
If so that is called 60 cycle Hum Bar and is a result of the following:
1. Bad grounding of the cable system.
2.Bad cable box. This a common problem with cable boxes.
3.If you are using Component cables from the cable box to the tv then the Component cables might be bad. Try using another set of Component cables. If that does not work then you need to call the Cable co. to come out and check their system and make sure that the cable tech brings out another cable box to try out. There is no problem with the set.
Is it a Plasma TV? Are you saying the screen is cracked? do you have a top box cable box? Also, make sure you have your TV input set to HDMI if you have an HDMI cable hooked up between your cable box and TV.
After I got over my fustration I did a little more reading and discovered that I could use purchase a
HDMI to DVI converter cable. Since DVI, unlike HDMI, is video only I also had to purchase a digital optical (it also carries audio) cable to get sound. It cost me an additional $70 for the two cables but it was worth it. I reasonably happy with the 1080i resolution which is all my SPN4235 is capable of at least until I can afford a new 60" HD Plasma TV.
Have you try to replace your HDMI cable?I recommend you to pick up a good Monster HD700 HDMI cable from a local retail store like best buy or circuit city.In case it isn't the cable problem,you could return it. However,when you are a using the HDMI cable,it is normally either have both picture and sound or nothing at all.Are you sure you didn't hook up the audio OUTPUT from your TV back to a receiver input? Or even an optical output from the TV to the receiver? solutiondoct
