When you tried it and you turned on the TV, was the device hooked to that HDMI powered on before you switched to another input? That is where I see the issue. If I turn on the TV and it is on SAT and I also power on the SAT box, everything is fine and I can switch to other inputs without issue. The problem occurs when I turn on the TV and don't send a signal to the input it is on. Then when switch to the PS3 or x-box, it still says there is no signal.
I can reproduce this problem in my setup.
-Turn BD on and switch to the BD input.
-BD player is on and signal is coming thru to TV
-Shut off BD player - TV soon goes into no signal mode (expected)
-Turn on cable box/SAT box.
- switch TV to cable box/SAT box input. (note the input list shows it as active).
- TV tries to connect but goes right back into no signal mode.
- shut off TV and cable box and back on again.
- signal connection is good again.
Anyone notice flashlighting progressively getting worse over time? I had zero flashlighting when I first started using the TV. Now I can definitely see some random flashlighting developing in several areas. I just got done with the cnet calibration settings last night. I wonder if calibration brings out the flashlighting effect? More specifically stuff like local dimming, backlight and brightness.
