HD cable box to receiver not working
I just got an HD cable box and it is hooked to the CBL/SAT input on my receiver via HDMI. My other things(PS3, blu ray player) is also hooked via HDMI to its own receiver input and finally I have an HDMI out from my receiver to my TV HDMI in. I switch my TV input to HDMI1 and everything works except for cable. There is no picture and no sound(screen is just blue). Does anyone know why the HDMI set up works for everything but my cable box?
I found a solution, but I'm not sure if quality is lost. I connected my cable box via HDMI directly to my TV HDMI2 and for audio, I used the red/white cable from cable to receiver's CBL/SAT red/white.
There is a digital audio output on my receiver AND my TV. There is also a digital audio input on my receiver labeled TV/CD. I'm not sure I should do with these. I'm currently using HDMI1 for everything but cable and HDMI2 for cable(red/white for audio).
