Which HDMI socket is the Xbox plugged into?

Hmm... mine automatically switches to HDMI 1 whenever what's in there is switched on. Doesn't do it with any of the other inputs though.

Hi

Are you sure that this can be done? I have the 37" version and I don't believe mine will work like that. I now have everything switching through my 3 input HDMI Amp and use both Bluray and Freesat. The Amp then sends the HDMI signal to the TV.

I was playing with the TV yesterday and managed to hide all the other inputs such as Component, PC, AV2 etc so when you turn the TV on it picks up either TV or HDMI. As I don't use the TV signal at all, it automatically switches to HDMI and will pick up whatever the Amp feeds it. In most cases it will be Freesat as Bluray is not used as often.

Does this make any sense???:smashin:

If i change settings from av1 to HDMI1 the xbox is fine.(no sky+)
I know this can auto switch source as it used to do it,i moved leads last night,since then i have the problem,maybe duff HDMI lead not sending "wake up" signal ?

Are the TX and TH-42PX80B similar tv's?? I got the TH Saturday and I thought it would be able to switch between my PS3 via HDMI 1and Sky+ via AV 1 when I turned each of them on and off!!

Is this not the case??

Try switching the mains power to all the equipment off for 10 mins as this may clear the 'fault'.
