I recently switched my WDTVLH’s output from component to HDMI (old receiver died). About 15 to 20% of the time, the hub fails to get content to the screen. What I see is a 4:3 blue box on my TV.
I’ve gone though the forums here and read about the HDMI handshake issues, but they seemed to be binary; either you got a pic or you didn’t. My issue is intermittent.
Here’s as much info as I think is relevant, but (TonyPH) feel free to id essential info I’ve omitted
– WDTVLH [HDMI] to Onkyo TX-NR709 [HDMI] to HDFURYIII [component] to Panny plasma TH-50PHD8U 1080i
– All devices flashed to current firmwares as of this moment
– WDTVLH resolution set to HDMI (auto)
For clarity, the workaround is a hard off on the WDTVLH (holding the power button for >3 secs) and voila!
