When I hook my B6000 to my Motarola cable box(model DCT6416 III) the T.V. does not recognize the conection.
The cable I am using is a Philips High Speed HDMI 1.3a
Cox cable brought out two box's and both are not read through HDMI on the T.V.
HELP, just got the T.V. yesterday

mikeh212,

Is the box's video output settings set to display the picture via HDMI?

Have you tried other cables with any success?

I have not tried different cables as they are so expensive. Cable guy is coming back Fri. and is speaking with his tecs. Frustrated as I need the component jacks for my Wii. I have tried a cable that works on the Blu Ray and it does not work on T.V. Is it common that a brand that works for one component (Blu Ray) won't work on another?

mikeh212,

The 60Hz listed on the INFO bar is telling you what the incoming resolution is, and most peripherals (DVDs, Blu-Ray players, cable/sat boxes, etc) all input at 60Hz. The 120Hz processing happens inside of the television automatically.
