I looked for HDMI cables this morning to see if it was the cable that was bad, but every cable was near $100.00. Can we start at another point? I should point out that one month ago, I had Geek Sqaud come out and reconnect everything. It has been working beautifully unitl yesterday. No one has touched a cable. Thanks.

Re: Continuing from last night
First thing you might want to try is hooking up the lifestyle directly to the tv without the vs-2. So we can eliminate that as a problem. I assume everything is going to that. There are some issues with these systems it seems but lets see if we can work it out though. Keep me posted, Lee

Make sure your connections are good unplug and plug in again. They are not real hard to pull out. This is a bluray player correct? If that doesn't work, do you have any other cables you can use to test your blueray player? Depending on what you have for output,input, you can use "composite"(red, whute, green"), component(blue, green, red), to check output of bluray. You will not get audio using component cables. You will have to use red and white composite or digital audio. Let me know what happens at "add a comment"
Are you using the component vide from the DVD player or HDMI/DVI? If the former, suspect one of the three cables isn't conencted well or has died. Recheck the connections. Give them a twist. Still bad? Substitute a known good cable for each one, one at a time, and see how it looks.
check the video input cables for any damage or broken part. check either ur tv or the player for any setting against NTSC, PAL or SECAM. Or try the tv with other player or try the player with other tv.
Yes You need a cable that runs from your cable box to the Home Theater System. If it is analog cable then you can use basic Audio Rca Cables from Best Buy. If You have a High Def box I would recommend using a Audio Fiber Optic cable from the box to the surround sound.
Did you plug the hdmi from the receiver to hdmi via the monitor hdmi output? this is needed so when you change the device on the receiver ie. between setop box and dvd the monitor changes with it accordingly.
You may also need to go to the setop box to set it to use hdmi output at the right frequencies too..ie. 720p 1080i or 1080p.Also set it so it only sends the picture via hdmi but audio still with optical out.
use component outputs of that unit to play on tv.Or use component or video output of sony unit and connect to cable box if available and use the source switching on cable box to change sources that way you wont have to unplu HDMI cable..By the way HDMI has a new challenger in the near future called ' DISPLAY PORT' ..
