Hi Everyone, new here and have a big problem that I cant figure out on my own.
This is my system
62" Toshiba DLP Theater wide HDTv (HDMI & HDCP compliant)
Samsung HDMI Up converting DVD player
Bell express view satelite system

Here is my problem:
I had your standard progressive scan dvd player and wanted to go with an upconverting DVD player to make my standard DVD's look the best they could during playback.
I just purchased the Samsung HD860 that has a HDMI connection, I also had to buy a Digi Media 2 port HDMI switch station so I could run both my Bell expressview system and my new DVD player off the same HDMI port on my TV.
I used 3ft HDMI monster cable to conect my TV to the HDMI switcher and another 3ft HDMI cable to connect my DVD to the switcher.

No matter if I go direct connect DVD to TV through HDMI cable or use the port switcher I get snow on my screen during DVD playback.
I have all my setting correct as far as I can tell on both my TV and DVD.

Can anyone offer any help on this ?
Thanks
Ross

And your Express View works fine threw the HDMI?

I would suspect a defective DVD Player.
