    Cable is connected to an HR24-100. This problem jus happened for no reason. I removed the cable from the DVR and noticed it was a very tight fit,so i secured it with tape but that did not help. Replacing the cable is not adoption because it is running through th wall into another room. Is it possabile that the DVR has a bad connector?

    Try using the TV remote and change to a different Input and then go back to the correct one. This will cause the HDMI Handshake to happen. See if this helps.

    Most TVs have several HDMI Inputs. Try changing to a different one and choose the correct one on the TV.

    Yes, the HDMI connection could go bad on the HR24.

    If it is bad HDMI, they likely will not replace it, they don't consider that an issue.

    You could try turning Dolby Digital off and/or different channels to see if it is some kind of Dolby Digital trouble.

    The cable and connector wouldn't be the problem because the Audio is mixed in with the Video in HDMI. If you don't have any picture trouble then your TV is receiving what the DVR is sending out. The question is if the DVR is sending audio and if so why is the TV not processing it.

    I have seen at least on TV that you could set the Video input to one physical input (like HDMI1) and the audio to another (like Analog or Optical). Maybe your TV has this option and it is set to get audio from a different input?

    Maybe?

    Is the HDMI going straight to the TV from the DVR?

    Don't think the audio selections I was talking about apply to your TV.

    Did you try the turning off dolby digital?

    How are you using the Onkyo ?
    My son has an HDMI run to his Yamaha amd HDMI from there to his Mutsubishi TV but he uses the Optical Coax for his sound.
    I run the Component cables to my TV so I can use the TV speakers sometimes but I also have the Optical cable run to my Yamaha and use it for sound when my son is up and awake.

    How about testing your TV with another HDMI source?

    Removed original HDMI and used a new one and no picture or sound. It may be time to call D*
