For users of Sky HD in conjuction with Panasonic devices, Panasonic have advised disconnecting Pin 13 on HDMI to get HDAVI control working correctly. It appears Sky HD is putting some spurious voltage/commands on pin 13 that is in some way stopping HDAVI working correctly between Panasonic Displays and devices such as DVD players/recorders. Some trials of my own show me that Sky HD is causing some form of problem. Without it connected, HDAVI is working perfectly. Plug Sky HD into my other HDMI socket, and even with Sky HD on standby HDAVI goes erratic. However, how do you disconnect Pin 13. How would you know which wire to snip if I took the outer off? Or could you cover the pin in the plug with something, or just pull the pin out with some pliers? Obviously I will try this first with a £1.99 HDMI cable, not a £400 wirewound one Has anyone with suitable equipment actually established what Sky HD might be doing (wrong) with pin 13? Might any of you cable manufacturers actually be in a position to make pin 13less cables?
