dreaded "searching for signal" when using dvd w hdmi

by riley371 / February 21, 2010 12:24 AM PST

i've had this issue for some time.

we have a samsung ln46b550 tv w/ a samsung home entertainment

tv works fine via digital cable, getting 1080i picture. but when watching dvds (connected with an hdmi cable), i get "searching for signal" every 30 to 60 seconds...

i've seen many similar complaints with samsung tv/dvd combos across the web. no solutions. is there one?

thoughts? i'm going to try a component cable later today. we'll see.
