Hi guys. I have a seriously weird problem and I hope someone recognizes it and can provide some advice.
I use HDMI running to a Onkyo Tx606 receiver with a Panasonic Plasma set. Every time I turn on my 360 I see only black screen and no sound. It takes 3 to 5 reboots to get a signal show up on my set. Lately it's gotten so bad, I have to unplug the HDMI on the console and plug it back in to get a picture/sound. And even that doesn't always work. Once I get it working..it's seems fine, until I start up the next session the next day.
I assumed it was my less then 12 month old Jasper arcade unit acting up.. so I rehooked up my old PRO model (also with HDMI) and THE SAME THING HAPPENS. So now I know it's not the 360's.. but a switching problem(?). I had to download an 'security' update when I re-hooked up the old PRO and it got me wondering if they messed with the HDMI security handshake thing and that's causing it. I expected to see a thread here with a ton of people having this problem ..but I couldn't find anything here in this thread.
My next option would be to go back to componet and TOS cable but I so like the HDMI route. WTF is going on??
