Here's how I connected everything:
1). HDMI cable from the HT-C5500 (HDMI out) to the LG 42PC5D (HDMI in).
2). Optical cable running from HT-C5500 to my Pace HD box
3). HDMI cable running from Pace HD box to LG 42PC5D
Cable box works fine, audio works from the HT-C5500 as well but when I switch my LG to show video, it's just a black screen with the Invalid Format message on it.
Am I doing something wrong?
Remember that HDMI can handle both video and
audio. If I were you, I would hook up the HT-C5500 (this is a home theater in a box, this thread is about the BD-C5500, a standalone bluray player
), to your tv and get rid of the optical cable. And I would connect your pace hd box to another hdmi port on your tv, that way you can switch between hdmi ports to access your HT-C5500 or your pace hd box.
