I just purchased the WDTV. Composite works fine on my Phillips 46" but HDMI doesn’t. When I turn the device on, with only HDMI connected, it shows the WDTV boot screen (logo with stars and moon) for about 15 sec then I get a blank sceen and shows HDMI1 in the corner as if I just changed the input source on my TV.
It’s a known good cable as it works with my DIgital Cable Box and since it transmits the boot screen I’m guessing it’s not the cable.
While connected to composite, I’ve tried changing the input in the WDTV to HDMI (settings all Auto), it appears to change resolution for a moment then turns back to composite.
I’ve seen on other discussion boards that this may actually be an incompatibility with my TV, but you would think this box would work with any recent TV. Some have said the box can’t find a compatible screen resolution but there’s no reason it shouldn’t IMO.
Any help on this. Id really like to keep this cuz it plays all the file types I want but I’ll likely send this back if I can’t get it working within the return policy. :(
Thanks in advance.
