Thank you for looking.

I have a new Panny TH-42PZ85U and have a TIVO Series 3 HD with cable cards attached to one HDMI. To the other HDMI I am attempting to get a Philips 8100 Soundbar attached. Problem is green pixels.

If I attach the HDMI instead of the the Philips to the TIVO it's fine... So, I know it's not the TV or the cable itself.

I tried an HDMI repeater (non-powered) thinking it would maybe "boost" the HDMI signal. Philips sent out a second unit and it is doing exactly the same thing....

Any ideas?

Also, I probably will get flamed... but how do I get into my service menu for the Panny model I have?

Peace.... Jet.

1) For problems with the sound bar, try the HTIB section under Audio, someone might have some insight on your problem. Green pixels is a sign of data loss in the signal, you may want to bypass HDMI through the sound bar and use optical/coax to hook up audio if that's another option.

2) For the service menu for your plasma, check the Plasma section under display devices, some searching should turn up and answer quickly or posting there should get you an answer.

Please don't PM me with technical questions that should be posted in the forum.
