    Faulty cable, faulty socket maybe or a faulty dvd player. Try taking the dvd player to a retailer to try.....

    I was afraid you'd say the faulty word. When i pluged the hdmi lead into the dvd it was a tight fit but when i pluged other end into the tv it wasnt nearly as tight a fit. I'll do as you say and take the dvd to currys or comit and see if it works but ive a horrible feeling its the H5 hdmi socket thats faulty.

    I just looked at the hdmi socket on the TV and it looks like one of the small gold contacts has bent back into the socket :rolleyes: it must have been standing sightly proud and i caught it putting the cable in. Ill have to have a closer look to-morrow as there's no one here at the moment to help take it off its stand. Im hoping i can caefuly bent the contact back, Would this be covered on the warranty the tv is only 16 days old.

    Theres no way i could do anything with this the contacts are pushed right back into the socket and i cant even see where they should lay. Im going to phone DigiUK and get this sorted under warranty all i did was plug in the lead and this has hapened or it was like it :eek:
