I bought an HDMI cable the official one from Sony back in January, oddly after I bought a new HDTV it soon stopped working, I thought it may have been the HDTV or the PS3 itself but it turned out to be a faulty cable. I returned the same one and two weeks later I am experiencing the same issue with a new cable, is it the PS3 or the TV frying the cable or something. I used an unofficial cable and its not giving any problem... for now at least.

1. Please try a new HDMI cable.
2. Try to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the TV. You may download it from SONY official website if there is a upgrade for your model.
3. After upgrade the firmware, if the problem is not solved, change the main board.
Sony's internet browser as well as newer games require the newest official firmware to work, as a way of stopping hacking and/or piracy. Your options are switch back to official firmware, or wait until someone in the homebrew community comes up with a fix.
Well, make sure your computer is compatible with your HDTV, also try using a different HDMI cable. Also, you may need to configure your HDTV with your computer, learn how here: http://www.ramelectronics.net/howto-av.ep Hope I helped :)
plug the sony player into your home network via a network cable ( should be a network port ( RJ45 port ) on the back of it and then update the firmware - unless its already the latest version, if it is then post back with any error messages or whats happening exactly when you try to select HDMI or is it greyed out ?
if it is an new 360 arcade, pro or elite with an hdmi output on the back, buy a hdmi cable. if there is no hdmi output on the back like most original 360's, buy the official 360 vga cable and conneect it to your pc input. this will ensure best quality, last resort is YcPcb
Most new HDMI DVD players use High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP)on the HDMI output.If you try to play this on an older TV that is not compliant with these new standards it will not work.This standard came out late in 2004 that is why your older player still works. There is also a service bulletin from JVC about upgrading the software on your TV for HDMI compatiblity issues.If you want a pdf file of the bulletin I can send it to you.
