    I have seen a few posts of people indicating they lost HDMI with L4.41. Please post your details here as to what is your TV make and model and if you are connected via a HDMI switch etc. Also do an HDMI test and post errors you see. Might want to also post a picture of your HDMI screen. Also provide details as to the exact behavior of your issues. More details the easier it is to track these type of issues.

    Also.. Be sure to try Power cord reboot on both your TV and 622 to see if it brings it back to life.

    There's also an HDMI reset in the menu screens

    No, HDMI works fine. I use HDMI for both video and audio; 622->HDMI->Yamaha receiver->HDMI->Sony TV. Yamaha handles the 5.1 DD audio, forwards video to the TV.

    No problem with HDMI, though RED is now VERY RED, without blurrriness or color bleeding (that was happening before L4.xx)

    L441 killed my HDMI connection, just like L409 did (came back when they reverted to L405).

    HDMI test shows HDMI enabled on the Dish STB side = FALSE. I've tried a couple of hard reboots but it won't flip back to TRUE.

    TV is an older Samsung TSN3084WHD (DVI input).

    How exactly do I test if HDMI is working. Since my upgrade my picture is not as sharp and many channels look very red. Thanks

    I am having the same issue connected to a Toshiba 50HDX82 through the DVI port. The HDMI data shows as all FF's and that the checksum is invalid. When I scroll through the different data options there is a brief message that flashes saying it can't read the EDID data. It just doesn't look like it can read the config data from the DVI port so it can send the correct signal.

    I have tried calling tech support but there solution is to send someone out to fix the problem. Saying it can't be a software issue since I can still get a signal. They wouldn't even transfer me to level 2 tech support. That really showed me how much they want to get this problem resolved.

    I was unable to find the HDMI reset in the 622 menus. I have two 622's, and they are both substituting purple/blue for black with my new Optoma HD80 projector over HDMI, producing an unwatchable picture. I do not know if this issue was preexisting, as I just purchased the HDMI projector. A 3 year old 941 Samsung DVD player and a new Toshiba HDAX2 HDDVD both send perfect images using the same cables, so I know that the 622's are the problem.

    I believe HDMI reset is in the HDTV setup screen. I'll go up and take a look in a little while if you don't find it. I have the 622 and it's definitely there. I still have teh 405 software though.... give me a few minutes...

    ALSO... if possible.... see what you get when you connect using component rather than HDMI.

    The question should be split. Is anyone having problems with this software with HDMI to HDMI (other than on old TVs)? Is HDMI to DVI still working on any TV with this software?

    Thanks - I did find the diagnostic test yesterday, kind of buried. The reset didn't help the problem. I noticed at first the HDCP was set to off, now it's set to on. I notice the colorspace is set to RGB, but all the tabs are greyed out so you can't really change anything other than the reset. Is anyone else having problems identical to mine with the HDMI port (blacks being replaced by purple/blue)?

    Picture over component is fine, I send component to my Denon 4308, and then HDMI to the Optoma HD80.

    My Panasonic AV700U projector has always worked flawlessly with the 622 (HDMI input, not DVI). I'm using an el-cheapo 2x1 switch from Monoprice so I can also use the HDMI output from an Xbox 360 Elite.

    I have both HDMI-HDMI and HDIM-DVI using a adapter from monoprice. I can say in my case both are working. If i have time I will try and take pictures of my HDMI-DVI screen. MY HDMI to DVI is a Sony Grand Wega II. My HDMI to HDMI is a Sony 32 4x3 CRT. Mind shows no checksum errors.

    Not sure where the Hex info comes from. Interesting that someone pointed out they are all FFs. Mine definitely are not al FFs.

    My HDMI to HDMI is working fine with my outdoor Sunbrite HDTV over a 50' Monoprice cable, I just guess the HDMI output on the 622 is incompatible with my new Optoma HD80 - so much for entering the HDMI age for me.:(

    I agree tnsprin. MOre info the better. If you can provide details of your configuration and pictures of the HDMI screen I am sure they will be helpful to the E* engineering team.
