Ok I am at my wits end, and I am hopeful someone might be able to give me some advice!
I have a:
Mitsubishi 65" HDTV with one 1080i component input port
Xbox 360 (component output)
HD DVD player (component output)
Motorola QIP6416 HD DVR - Verizon Fios (component output)
Due to the fact that my TV only has one input for 1080i, I had to buy a Psyclone Component switcher to plug in all these devices.
All things work great UNTIL I plug in the DVR. When I do, all other devices using the switcher immediately start so heavily degrade. However, the DVR signal appears to work perfect. When the DVR is unplugged, all other devices return to normal.
So far I have:
Returned the switcher and got a new one in case of it being defective
Moved around all the input devices / cables to rule out bad cabling
I am wondering if there is a problem in which the DVR is emitting some noise to deter would-be hackers recording on the output signal. I just want all my component devices to work through one switcher so that I can have all my HD signals pass through my TV's single HD input. Thoughts?? Could it be a grounding issue?
Thanks for any help!!
