Ok damn TV isnt playing nice now i hooked the blue ray up with a new phillips hdmi cable, and popped in a disc but it isnt recognizing the signal on the damn TV its like there is no connection or some bullshit. WTF it worked fine with RCA's before i been through all of the menus etc. God i hate it when they try to make **** smarter than it needs to be and it ***** with your use of it. IF you plug the **** in it should work 100000% period, esp when to recap you have a good receiver good braodcast and good cable i hope being only about 3 hrs old. :( im not happy bout this **** to say the least.

Make sure you are selecting the correct HDMI input on the TV. Make sure the Blue-Ray isn't outputting a mode you TV can't handle (1080p/24).

Can't see a reason why it wouldn't work if it is all hooked up correctly. HDMI out on the Blu-Ray, HDMI in on the TV, correct input channel... maybe you are just overlooking a setting somewhere.

ionno i just took the cord and hooked it to my laptop and am running the TV as a mirror of my desktop just fine now, the blueray still does the RCA feed but even if i turn it on and back off etc it doesnt wanna talk through the hdmi for some reason. And yeah i have the hdmi settings turned on. Both units are panasonics you would think this would mean less trouble.

Well after pulling the power and the hdmi and blowing into both the connetor and the output of the Blu ray i proceeded to reassemble and then plug in the Blue ray and this time the ****** worked. So i gues it was some kind of OS issue with viera or something bottom line i cant wait to get a ps3 and ditch this player but for now it seems to work. why it didnt work the other 5 times i tried it before is beyond me imo.

Good, so its working. I hate electronics like that. Sometimes they just have a mind of their own and do **** like that for no obvious reason. I've had a Blu-Ray player for about 3 months now, and have yet to even see what a Blu-Ray looks like on my TV. I've had the TV or about 2 years now and outside of the few high def channels I have, and PS3 and 360 games, I haven't seen really good high def yet. Too cheap to go buy another HDMI cable and too lazy to swap the one hooked to my 360...
