Just curious if anyone else has run into this problem? I have a dell 37 inch lcd and recently got dish network. Can not get the hdmi hookup to work, just get a blank screen. Chatted with Dell and they said my problem was my hdmi to hdmi cable, that if i used a hdmi to dvi cable with adapter this would fix prob. Does this make any sense to anyone? just curious before I spend more cash

Does your TV have an HDMI or DVI connector? If its DVI then you need the adapter, otherwise you need HDMI to HDMI. If you do a search on HDMI connection, you will find out there is a very well known problem with the HDMI connector in the 622 breaking. If you just got a new unit this may not be your problem but if it is a refurb, it could be. If you have another TV or an A/V receiver with an HDMI connection, try using that with the 622. If it works the 622 HDMI connection is good.
