On a lark, I decided to pick up a Monster Cable DVI-HDMI cable from BestBuy and see if it also had the same problem. I hooked it up and it works perfectly. It takes a second or so after hooking it up for the audio to come though, but it does every time. I swapped it out for the old cable and sure enough, the same problem... There must be some sort of handshaking that the cable needs to do with the HDMI port to tell it that there's no audio? Really strange.
UGH.....they are scheduled to replace my set at 8am in the morning - long before I can get a new cable.
The difference is, you can get yours to work wiggling the cable - I can't on mine....but its still to strange of a coincidence.
I think I am going to hold off on taking the replacement set and try a new cable.
I do think most of the 910s and 960s have geometry problems.
Unlike others on this thread, knowing this and knowing the set, if I can replace the cable and get that working, I will let them try and eliminate the geometry problems, even sending the set to their pros in Miami if need be - as I am about convinced thats the only way its really going to get the TLC to set it right - especially if it involves moving the magnets. I just don't think they burn them in enough and take the time in the sony plant in San Diego where they assemble these things.
I dont care if I am without it a week if thats what it takes for the best alignment that can be done.
