I have had the Sony Recorder for a few years.

I just upgraded my TV to the LG 47LG90 47" LCD LED HDTV.

I'm trying to hook up the recorder to the tv via the HDMI connection. I purposely bought the Sony knowing it had an HDMI hookup and that I would eventually want to use it. I can't get it to work.

If I connect it directly to the TV I get a white screen (no picture) but the sound works.

I ultimately want to hook it into my Denon receiver and surround sound but if I do it this way I get nothing, my TV just says no signal.

The unit works perfectly fine using the other connections (s-video, component video).

Anyone have any suggestions on getting the HDMI connection to work??

I went through the troubleshooting: turning the equipment off/on and reconnecting the cables and even adjusting the video settings and none of that helped.

The HDMI light on the front panel is lit which is supposed to mean it is working.

Did you ever fix this issue, my RDR-vx555 is 3.5 years old and worked perfect till a few days back. Now I have the exact same issue. Did you ever figure it out?

I had kind of the same problem with my Sony and my Hitachi 42'' Plasma. But, my TV is a few years old and only 1080i not 1080p. I remember seeing some kind of message about the 1080i not being supported. I never did get it to work with HDMI only component cables. I'm curious now, when I have time I'll go back and check and post what I find.
