hey guys, just trying to figure out if its my cable or the tv.
the tv is a sony kdl 46"xbr2. 2weeks old.
the cable is a bettercables, silver serpent hdmi.
i never noticed this before, but i have taken the tv off the wall, (unplugged the hdmi) about 3 times , for various reasons. now something is loose. i cant tell if its the cable or tv . if i plug it in, it wont pick up the signal sometimes unless i shake it or something. then its fine, but is this normal with hdmi?
In many cases the HDMI connector on the TV is mounted only to a circuit card and can break loose: I have seen reports on this with Sony models and some problems getting Sony to fix it under warranty: be careful to insert the connector gently
This is where the port saver comes in handy: you connect/disconnect to the port saver instead of the TV: I use them and no, it should not affect PQ
please take the high road in every post:do not respond to or quote a problematic post: report it HDMI.org:what a mess
