Great news my ninjas!!! So when I got home tonight, I pulled out my ladder, grabbed a razor blade and made a small slice in the outer cable jacket just to see what I was getting myself into. I carefully clipped away some of the tinsel inside and quickly exposed two of the small wires inside. No visible damage to the jackets to those two wires. So I went to get a few tools and decided to turn my PJ and HD-DVD player on so that I can see if and when the HDMI signal hits the PJ once I find and splice the damage wire(s). So I go in the garage to grab my tools and when I came back in, Transformers is playing on my PJ in all it's HD glory!!! So I must have tweaked the cable while messing with it enough to "fix" the short in it. I wrapped the slice I made in the cable with some electrical tape with no drop in the HDMI signal.
In short, my issue is resolved... at least until I have my crown back up and all caulked and painted; my wife said it will be my luck that everything will be fine until I think I am all finished and then BAM... the thing is screwed up again.
I sure hope not. As always, thanks for all your help. Now to start conditioning the wife to the idea of getting the Onkyo 805!!!
