    I just bought another tv today. All of my connections up until now have been component. I tried hooking this one up via HDMI using multiple h20-100's and different cables and the screen would flicker between the picture and signal lost. I found a link in the FAQ on dtv's site that said this happens when you use the HDMI connection sometimes. Has anyone has this happen and if so, how was it resolved? Did dtv replace it? I just want to know before I call and berate a human as to what I can expect.


    Thanks in advance.

    Yeah I tried that when I called the TV tech support line to see if they've heard of it before.

    Try turning the TV on with that input selected, but not connected. Have the H20 on and connect the HDMI. This is not a recommended practice, but it corrected a friend of mine same problem with HDMI and his cable box. It has to do with the handshake. If this does not work, be sure to try another componet on the same HDMI input and see if the problem persists. If it does, return the TV and get a replacement. You might also want to try another HDMI input if the TV has more than one.

    There are problems with the HDMI on some Philips TVs - they have developed firmware fixes for these. Check on the Philips web site, you can download them from there..

    Awesome sauce I tried that yesterday but apparently it was the wrong firmware. Thanks!
