I'm trying to troubleshoot a problem with a Pace Tahoe cable DVR running Passport software and connected to the WD-92840 via HDMI. The first time I use the combo in the day, after the TV warms up, I see a black screen with the correct "Cable Box" input displayed on the screen. I cannot get audio or video to display even after power cycling the DVR or changing channels. The only way I can get the TV and DVR to work is by unplugging the DVR while the TV is on and wait for a total cold reboot.
When I first got the set, I used to be able to resolve the problem by switching channels, which took a while but eventually "triggered" the set into displaying the DVR's A/V signals.
I'm assuming that the TV does know that there's a device there since it does not show the blue screen indicating no signal, and I wouldn't have been able to setup the DVR on the TV as a "cablebox" in the first place if some sort of signal wasn't being delivered.
I will say that once the DVR has been cold booted, everything works perfectly even if I switch the DVR into "off/standby" mode or switch sources. Therefore it seems that the HDMI cable is OK. Any ideas?
