I probably should have mentioned that I also had the same problem (no menu display, handshake attempts looping) with the Sony x700 blu-ray player that I have in the system when connected to HDMI 2 on the TV. The x700 works with the HDMI 4 connection. I'm thinking I will try HDMI 3 input on the TV this weekend if I can find the time. I'm really confused regarding the fact that HDMI 2 fails and HDMI 4 works. It seems it should be the opposite.
