    Hello,

    New to the forums and looking for some input on a weird problem we just started experiencing. We previously had our Sony Blu-Ray player hooked up through our Denon receiver to the TV via component video. A new TV (samsung) and some re-wiring and now it's all HDMI. We can fire up a Blu-ray disc/DVD and watch for a while, but after about 15 minutes the signal just goes away. Same thing happens when watching streaming video.

    I don't really know where to begin debugging this. I can't see how it's a cable or interconnect problem since we do get the signal initially. It seems like a timeout of some sort, but that makes no sense to me.

    Any thoughts? Thanks.

    - Jeff

    Responding to my own question in case anyone else runs into something similar. Turns out it was a cable problem. I guess the cable was good enough to get the signal through but not good enough to handle the HDMI handshake data in some way. After a while the receiver decided that no "official" HDMI content was being presented on that port and switched it off. A new cable solved the problem.
