If anyone could help with this, it'd be greeaaaatly appreciated!
Everything was working as intended until someone bent the end of the hdmi cable going into the TV from the AVR (instant no signal).
So now there's a new HDMI cable running from monitor out on the AVR to the TV.
No video signal. I still get audio but no video!
Why would this be?
The cable does work by the way if you go directly from the source instead of the AVR.
What have I screwed up?!
Good chance you screwed up the HDMI jack on the HDMI output card in your AVR. Looks something like this:
Of course you recognize the HDMI jacks above and to the left and right of the blue, green, and red video jacks (may be different on your AVR)
Here is a close up of one of the jacks before it was soldered to the card:
You can see the itty-bitty contact pins on the left. Likely one or more of them got broken.
Notice the great enlargement of the picture of the jack and the tiny spacing of the pins. Odds of you replacing this jack yourself are probably low. For one thing there are about 50 different versions of it with different pin routings and spacings, mounting of the body of the connector, etc.
How much did the AVR cost you and when did you buy it?
