The other night after watching something from the hdd, I couldn't get the unit to respond to commands from the remote pertaining to the Direct Navigator. I couldn't delete the show I just watched, for example. I couldn't edit it at all.
I turned off the unit and the next morning for some reason, those functions worked again. I deleted the show from the previous night, did a high speed dub from a disc to the hdd, and watched a show from the hdd via the HDMI output.
Later that night, when I turned the machine on again, there was no picture or sound via the HDMI output. I looked at the settings and the page where you set the HDMI stuff had it set to "ON", but all the other options were grayed out. I tried turning that off and back on, even with doing the same with the unit, but always it came back with HDMI set to on, but all the others gray. And no picture or sound.
I was able to get the unit to output a signal via RCA cables.
But has anyone had the HDMI port just die like that?
Mike, if you read this, is this a problem you can fix?
Thanks for any help or advice.
