So my hdmi on my Xbox was working fine, up until today. Hdmi doesn't show. I've tried multiple hdmi cables and y+rt reset. I have a Samsung 40' LCD tv. It works fine with composite cables. Can anyone help?
Edit: 40'' not 40'.
What's it running through? Home theater, straight to TV, or this "Dish receiver" of which you speak (I know literally nothing about cable/satellite TV)?
Try hooking it up through component and changing the output to 480, 720, and 1080 in turn, switching over to HDMI-out after every switch.
Testing this stuff to ID a problem can be a real pain in the ass. There are a lot of issues with HDMI, so do these things: 1) Prepare your body for the journey ahead 2) Make sure your TV is set to HDMI1 or whatever. Test your Cable receiver IN THAT PORT. Sometimes a TV HDMI port will die on you. This is why you have 4-8 of them I guess. 3) Did it work? Okay, port is cool. Take the HDMI cable from your cable receiver and connect your Xbox directly to the live port. Turn off everything. Power on Xbox then TV. If you're currently connecting through an AV receiver, that can screw it up. 4) Not working? Looks like your HDMI port fried in the box. At this point, you can send it in for repair or buy a new box. Unless you have a huge TV, there will be no difference really in doing a component connection. Not as good for surround speakers, if that is an isse for you. Have a nice fucking weekend. Maybe play some SMB or DKS. Really madochistic shit. Make it rain.
