Due to a terrible decision years ago HDMI might lock out connections until a power removal is performed. I remove power (AC plug) and HDMI cables then wait a while for the chips to reset. Then I plug in just what I want to test.
Keep in mind I never send 5.1 sound to a stereo TV.
Hi, I have a blu ray e5400 from samsung hooked up to an HDMI cable to a 40" flat screen SANYO model DP42740. Yesterday it was working fine, but when I turned it on today, I noticed I have video, but no audio. Yes the HDMI cable is good, I checked with another one and it did the same. Yes I tried on PAM and the oh her audio settings and still no sound, yes I have even tried changing ports and turning in on and off with the tv being on and off. So I'm at a bit of a lose as to what happened. My tv now say "please use audio input 3 for DVI connection, but the samsung e5400 has no av ports so that can't happen. I checked with another tv with the same HDMI cable and it worked perfectly. That is a bit confusing why only video will show on the Sanyo and no sound, I tried a sat. Box and no picture or sound, the ps3 was the same. But if I use the same HDMI cables for the blu ray player to connect to my nintendo 64 through a small av to HDMI converter, the n64 will show up on the HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 with both video and sound. Weird. Any new ideas?
