HDMI Probem 860 Model

by iugradmark / November 3, 2008 5:25 AM PST

I am trying to connect an HDMI cable directly to my 860 from a Direct TV HD DVR model HR21 receiver. On the Direct TV HDR, I have turned off output for signals below 720 resolution. When I connect I get a "Mode Not Supported" error message and no sound or picture.

If I send the signal through my AV Receiver first and use the same cable to connect out of the AV Receiver to the TV, everything works so I know that the cable works. I have read that Samsung has problems handshaking with certain TV boxes and am wondering if there is an update to the firmware or something else that I can do to allow the connection to work.

I have a Samsung LN46A860. I just want to be sure that the upgrade does address the specific problem I am having with HDMI. Are there release notes for the software describing what the upgrade does?

Thank you for responding,
