I bought the TC-P42G10 in June. My cable provider (Hotwire Communications) uses some kind of rebroadcasting from Dish. My receiver is a Dish VIP722. Two weeks ago I upgraded from the standard Dish HD receiver to this VIP722 DVR. The HDMI connection between the receiver and the TV does not function - no picture or sound whatsoever - although the component connection provides perfectly satisfactory 1080i viewing. The technicians have tried multiple VIP722 devices and have tried all kinds of HDMI cables among all three HDMI ports on the P42G10. The old Dish HD receiver had communicated cleanly with the P42G10 over HDMI. The HDMI connection operates properly between the P42G10 and the Panasonic BD60 Blu-ray and the Sony CT100 speaker system. I have noticed that Panasonic has (or will soon have) a firmware fix for the G10 series regarding HDMI / HDCP handshake with Onkyo receivers. I am hoping that this HDMI handshake update will by some stroke of luck also fix my own problem. I do not know how one goes about obtaining this firmware update. Any suggestion will be most appreciated.
