    I'm sure other people already know this, but I think I might have figured out something with the ViP612 HDMI connectivity issue.

    I'm having the well-documented loss of HDMI signal issue with my ViP612, and in fact I'm now on my second box that has the same problem. I'm to the point that every time I turn on the new box (installed 5/29) I have the No Signal issue.

    HOWEVER, since I started turning on my TV before turning the 612, I haven't had a HDMI signal loss issue. Can anyone confirm that this works for them, or am I just the recepient of some dumb luck?

    Since my HDMI port literally broke, meaning the solder joints failed
    (verified by the "wiggle test", this wouldn't have worked.

    I always follow these steps in order and have never had a problem in a year and a half - turn power to 622 first, turn on my Onkyo receiver, and the last thing I do is turn on my projector. For shut down, I do the reserve. I have hdmi from the 622 to the Onkyo and hdmi from the Onkyo to the projector.
