If the sound is on the hdmi 2 on the tv ..plug the hdmi cable on the hdmi 2 plug ....and after that open it up ..get into settings and put the sound and image on hdmi ..
here are the instructions for auto settings ..

  • Disconnect any previous cables you were using for the PS3
  • With PS3 off connect the HDMI cable to the PS3 and the TV
  • Hold down the PS3 power button, it will beep once but keep holding down the power for another 5 seconds till you get another beep
  • If all went well the PS3 should be set to the HDMI connection

For to manually connect it ..follow this instructions ..

  • Connect both the AV cables (white/red/yellow) and HDMI cables to the TV and PS3
  • Now turn on the PS3 and go to the "Settings" and then "Display Settings" then "Video Output Settings". Select "HDMI"
  • Now we need to do the same for the audio. Go to "Settings" > "Sound Settings" > "Audio Output Settings" and change it to "HDMI"
This way you will have image on av during the set-up mode..if you want to make changes in the ps3 settings ..

If you have the DVR connected to the TV with the Coaxial and the HDMI that is probably causing the problem I work for a Cable company and have dealt with this problem on numerous occasions. Try just disconnecting the Coaxial cable from the cable box that should fix this issue.

I have the same set, same problem with one of my MOTOROLA boxes, but not with another. I have a SONY TV that works fine with this new MOTO box, but the new VIZIO does not. The audio is coming through the HDMI cable just fine, and the fact that it works when you cycle power on your TV means it's the SYNC between the TV and the BOX. I have the identical problem and am taking back the MOTO box for another one. I spoke to VIZIO for about 45 minutes trying different things. They think it's the MOTOROLA box, COX (my cable company) thinks it's this particular box, who knows.

My Xbox 360 will not show a picture you can hear the sound but there is no picture.

1) make sure the video cable is firmly inserted into the back of your xbox 360. Sometimes a loose connection will produce this result.

2) Check the end to your television set and make sure it is in correctly. Is this HDMI ??

3) Cycle the inputs on your tv until it gets back to your xbox 360 and see if the picture appears.

4) If you have this hooked up via HDMI, connect it through another method and go into the video settings in your xbox 360 dashboard and set them to auto detect.

Let me know if this helps.

No picture or sound on the tv

where you put the cables for the sound and picture if you look on the end where you plug it into the xbox 360 you will see a little switch it has HD and TV on it depending on what your tv supports (HD ready TV) (normal TV) switch that switch to what TV you have (e.g. HD TV, switch the switch to HD) if that doesnt work then try checking that you have all the cables in the right ports if you have pluged the HD cables into a normal TV then this is not going to work, check cables and check the switch!
