It's not a "false statement" thanks, I am perfectly well aware of the fact that the technicolor mode is different. It's been discussed in detail right here, no need to "google" I was in the discussion about the technicolor mode. He'd already said he didn't like the technicolor mode and that he used ISF Bright and Dark, and I was clearly talking about those two modes. Sheesh!

Everything works perfectly. A nice cheap fix. Thanks so much for solving my problem, with all the cables I tried I never expected this to work especially since it worked until the E8 firmware update.
Excellent news! Thanks for the update and glad it was so simple. It's also the reason people were so quick to ask about the cables - it so often is the cause that we're used to it. And even if not - you would have eliminated the biggest suspect
The other main thing to take away - in so many things in tech - "correlation is not causation". The firmware changed, and it stopped working. We all immediately jump to the conclusion "that made it fail!". But co-incidences are real, and often trap us and send us down the wrong path. I think the previous cable would have been marginal, and tipped over into failure when it did - which could have happened at any time.
The same thing happens here in the UK with Sky satellite PVRs. Hard discs fail. Millions of customers, so thousands will be having their discs failing every day, and boxes replaced. But when the discs fail during the time they are rolling out new software, there's always a flood of "the new firmware killed my disc!" threads
