Samsung 8000 cant read hdmi

Ok...at wits end...decided to unplug HD Sat feed on HDMI 1 and plug in new Xbox...tv says no connection...plugged the Sat HDMI back in...same thing...no connection. Put any of the other feeds in from HDMI 2 or 3, they work on HDMI 1. (all PCs)
Cant get the Sat, Xbox or my PS3 working on this new TV...what gives? (BTW, Sat feed was working great...all I did was unplug.

Just something to try.

Others have noted and postulated that the Intel HDMI chips can become "confused." Some have written that we unplug all the cables from the TV then unplug the AC from said TV and then go away for 10 or 15 minutes. Come back and apply AC then our one HDMI and re-test.

If that fails, the news is grim and you call it in.
