It’s probably just a typical HDCP handshaking issue. Unfortunately, this is probably the sort of thing we’ll just have to get used to as the content owners are so paranoid. I had issues with my HR20-700 and Panasonic plasma via HDMI. I also have an old CRT SDTV on the back porch connected to the HR20 via composite video. I’ve found that if I turn on the HR20 and the SDTV, but not the plasma, and then later I do turn on the plasma, “something” is lost in the handshaking and the HR20 won’t give it a signal. Have been able to sold this by disconnecting the HDMI cable and *unplugging* the plasma for a few minutes. I do not have to reset the HR20.
