HDMI failure


Standard Member
enjoy Tosh 62HM84 for months, really nice PQ.
didn't have HDMI gear until now. so try it to see how much improvement over component.
however, I can't make it works! :mad:
tried 2 HDMI DVD sources (Sharp HRD300 and LG DF9921N).
TV shows 'doesn't recognize such device'? :confused:
4m long HDMI cable is ATC certified which is tested w/o problem.
players are tested ok on another HDMI display.
have tried Tosh on first, then player on later -- > NG. :(
then try player on first, then Tosh on later -- > still NG. :(
what's wrong? how to solve such problem? :confused:
need you guys' help!

If it's anything like my Tosh then it has to be on first. If you forget and put the external device on first then the only way to get the TV to recognise it is to power down the TV completely from the mains. This seems to reset the HDCP chip when you power back up, then hopefully it will work as long as it's on first.

Pretty annoying really. Don't get any such problems with my Sanyo Z3 projector. I guess the Toshs are just more picky.
