I've posted this and no one is replying? Surely somebody must have come accross this?
I've just got a new Hannspree GT 32" HD LCD and im getting the following problem when using HDMI.

1)Tv on normally
2)select any game
3)PS3 logo appears
4)Blue Flash - HDMI logo on bottom right hand corner with 720p displayed and then continues to the game loading.

This is all fine however I am getting number 4 randomly during game play for about 5 seconds and then going back to the game?. What is causing this have I got a faulty tv:( or HDMI? Please could someone help me as I need to contact Clearance buys on Monday and sort this out?

Thank you

I've got the same problem dh1lon, sent an e-mail to Hannspree just now.

Have you resolved it at all? Because I fear its gonna result in a Pick-Up Repair Reserve situation, which sux because I've just ordered Assassin's Creed.

I'm not sure if this is the same problem, but I've read of the PS3 HDMI blue/blank screen issue before. Some of the claimed solutions include:

Get the HDTV's firmware updated (to support latest HDMI v1.3 spec?)
Switch HDTV off and back on
Change PS3 sound settings (PS3 thinks you have surround sound first time you enable HDMI output?)
Wiggle the HDMI cable in the PS3
