    I have the same issue. I unglug the HDMI from my Samsung HLN4365 and wait for one minute and then plug back it. It never did this under Sunday the 23rd and now it did it again today.

    I have the Sony Grand Wega KDFE42-A10.

    HDMI worked for the first three weeks, then nothing even with a unplug-plug. Component works fine.

    Hi Ron. Please let me know if you have the set (and perhaps what version 622 you have). If it appears it would help, I'll purchase another cable. However, since HDMI cables tend to be pricey, I'm trying to avoid that option (especially since my cable was working until recently).

    Thanks.

    Look at monoprice.com. They are very low price and lots of folks here, me included, have had good results with their cables.

    I finally looked up my TV model number. It's a SONY Grand Wega KDF-55WF655 and my HDMI connection has been working fine since installation of the 622 on Feb. 25.

    My current cable is actually from monoprice!

    BTW, I experimented a bit more, with some interesting results. First, instead of unplugging/replugging the hdmi cable at the tv set, I tried from the 611. This time, my picture returned, but without audio. I then tried connecting the 611 to the tv via component cable (I freed up a spot on the set). The component video and audio worked just fine, but when I switched back to the hdmi connection on my set, I got a red, grainy picture, still with no sound.

    I'm assuming it is okay to have both the component and hdmi connections going at once. If not, please let me know.

    This is all the experimenting I can do for now. My 611 is on the top of a tall armoire, which requires me to use a stepstool to reach. Not a big deal, except for the fact that I have a broken leg right now, and I don't think my doctor would approve of me climbing stepstools with my cast!!

    I've got both hooked up at once - no problem. Also should note that the HP MD5880n I'm having difficulty with works fine with other HDMI devices so I'm thinking it's the 622.

    Mine is a

    Sony
    KV-32HS420.

    I have had both a C and a B hooked up to the unit and both worked. I got my cable also from Monoprice and it is working fine (except the audio). Payed around 7 bucks plus shipping.

    Looks like we have the same model. Video 7 is where my HDMI input displays. So you are getting nothing on Video input 7?

    I assume you have tried changing resolutions of the 622 to see if you get anything on the input?

    Since I played around with the cable again, I'm getting a picture, but it is red and grainy and there is no sound.

    Is the audio broken on both of your units?

    HDMI audio breakup under certain configurations is a known software issue. Hopefully it will be corrected soon.

    This is a standard HDMI to HDMI cable right? Something does not sound right. HDMI is digital so you should either get it or not. You should not get something that is red and grainy..

    I'm now using my second VIP 622 with same problem. TV is HP 5880. unplug/replug is only way to get pic on the hdmi (either of two) inputs. I tried three different cables with same result. Component input is fine. I was hoping eventually to use the much-touted 1080p input capability of the HP (when 1080p is available), but maybe that's now gone by the boards. Should I switch to DirecTV? (Will Dish DVRs survive Dish's lawsuit loss to Tivo?)

    I have a Vizio P50HDM in the home theater, where the 622 is, and using HDMI the screen is either blank or blue, I am sure it is a software bug in the latest release, because, it used to work just fine. The set works via Componet just fine too. Both of the HDMI ports have been tried, and, they work with the Oppo I have (which used a DVI to HDMI cable, so no handshake issue). This is clearly a bug in the 622, with certain TV's.

    Then last Saturday Dish came out to replace my 811 in the kitchen with a 211, the set kitchen set is the Vizio P42HDTV, guess what? HDMI port worked for a little while, until the software upgrade was downloaded, then it never worked again... again, component video works.

    Dish tells me to wait for a new software revision.. yeah sure, Hello Comcast digital.... I have had enough of Dish, and, I think I would rather have on-demand at this point. Don't hold your breath for dish to fix this, you will likely be dead.

    I have been using the HDMI connection from day one, and it has worked flawlessly. I think when the receiver was new the firmware rev was something like 1.54 before the download of 3.56. It was installed last week. I doubt what version your firmware was at when you hooked up the cable has little to do with it. Sounds like a software/hardware capatibility issue with certain TVs to me.

    Using RAM Electronics high-end HDMI->DVI cable into an iScan HD scaler DVI passthrough input port, and from the scaler a DVI->DVI cable to a Benq PE8700 HD projector.

    Could also possibly be a cabling issue. If the EDID pins are not properly wired through, the HDCP encryption keys would not pass through and the the VIP will simply shut off the HDMI port having not communicated successfully with a HDCP enabled display device.

    Hello All! I am really glad to find out that I am not the only one with this problem. I finally got my 622 installed yesterday, and for a few hours the HDMI > DVI connection on my Missubishi worked great. This morning NOTHING! I tried everything I knew of to no avail. I was going to call Dish, but thought I would check here first. Any idea when the next software release is? It seems like I will either need to switch between my DVD component input or buy a pair of new cables and run the component signal through my Yamaha RX-Z1 until then.

    I have the Mitsubishi WS-65813.

    P.S. I got my HDMI to DVI cables through Bluejeans.com. I paid about $45.00 for a 15 foot length. For the little time I was able to enjoy it, i seemed to be just as good as tne Monster 400 DVI cable I paid much more for.

    I think you meant to say bluejeanscable.com :D

    http://www.bluejeanscable.com/store/dvi/index.htm

    I just picked up a BJC 9' HDMI Series 2 ($32 shipped), and it's almost double the thickness of the monoprice 28 awg series since it uses 24 awg signal conductors. I could have saved a few bucks by using a monoprice cable, but I've been dealing with BJC for about 4 years now and they are a fabulous company to deal with. Their HDMI is 1/4 the cost of those overpriced Monster Cables @ BB & CC anyhow, and it matches my other custom Blue Jeans Cables. ;)

    My 622 was installed on 4/24 and on 4/28 the HDMI stopped working. After reading this thread I tried 480i unplug/plug, 480p unplug/plug, 720p unplug/plug, 1080i unplug/plug all with the same results... no sound & no picture on my Toshiba DLP 52HM84. I even tried the power up receiver & TV with cable plugged, power up the receiver & TV with cable unplugged then plug with the same results... no sound & no picture. My connection worked for four days and then stopped. I am using a Dish supplied HDMI->DVI->HDMI cable to connect to the TV. I guess I will join the growing group of customers paitently waiting for the next software release hoping for a fix. Until then, I am fortunate that my component connection is working.

    New Panasonic 50 plasma, VIP622, Monoprice HDMI cable.

    HDMI worked fine Friday. Didn't work at all on Sunday. Can't do anything to make it work. Component works fine.

    Tech supports says.....we're working on it.

    Last night I had the blank screen with audio but only on the satellite digital locals. I could see the satellite stations and the OTA stations, I just couldn't get the digital satellite locals. The audio was fine. I called the E* technical support line and did a front panel reboot while I waited and everything was fine afer the reboot. The CSR asked me to reboot but I had already done it. They said it was a known issue with HDMI and that they're working on it. I knew this was an issue, I just didn't know that it was on only the digital satellite locals?

    I just had this problem appear last night. I have the samsung hln4365 using the hdmi to dvi adapter. I have had the 622 for many weeks. I was an early install. Componet worked fine, no dvi. After several plugs and unplugs of the cable it started working again.
    We were just watching the tv, no channel changes or anything. The picture just went black.

    I just had the problem of HDMI not working suddenly after about 2 weeks of working great. I called Dish tonight and the guy immediately said they will send a new receiver. We'll see if this one works. Probably not. :p
