your HDMI port on your tv is bad.
So, I'm coming up clueless here. I just bought a Sony BDP-S360 Blu-ray player and when I try to hook it up to my Magnavox 37MF231D/37 using the HDMI out I just get static/noise. The intro screen with the Blu-ray logo comes on and then static. I used component cables and those work fine. When I go into the output settings on the Blu-ray the option for HDMI is grayed out and not selectable.
I tried the Blu-ray player on a friend's tv and it worked fine. I have a normal upscaling DVD player with an HDMI out that I can connect to my tv and that works fine. So I've basically ruled out the cables, the player itself (as it works on a friend's tv, and the HDMI port on the tv (as it works with my upscaling normal DVD player).
This is the manual for my tv. Is there any reason why this wouldn't be compatible with a Sony Blu-ray player???
