HDMI is not as easy as expected
Buy a big screen HDTV, buy a DVD player, buy a HDMI cable, and you are in business.
That's what I thought when I first started down the path of HD migration. I had a Sony DVP-CX995V DVD-changer. It has a HDMI output. I have just recently bought a Panasonic TC-P50C1 50" Plasma HDTV. It has two HDMI inputs. And have gotten an eight-foot HDMI cable to connect the two device.
But no matter what I do, I can't get the DVD player to display on the big screen TV. There is only one HDMI output port and two HDMI input port. No matter which HDMI input port I plug the DVD player into, nothing shows on the screen.
I'm fed up. How difficult can this get. HDMI has only one plug. I don't know what else to do. Anyone have any ideas?

Looks like the Sony DVP-CX995V DVD-changer is the culprit.
I just bought my wife a HP DV7-3160us laptop with a HDMI port on it. Use the same HDMI cable between the notebook computer and the Panasonic TC-P50C1 HDTV works right off the bat. I turned on the TV first than the laptop (don't know if the reverse order works). Screen resolution is set to 1280x720 automatically.
I wonder what is wrong with the Sony DVP-CX995V.

Title: mini hdmi to hdtv problem
Weblog: Camera Hacker
Excerpt: I bought an aftermarket Mini hdmi to hdmi cable to connect my canon sx200is to my samsung hdtv to view videos. It is not working. Is it possible that canon only allows thier mini hdmi to hdmi cable to interface?
