Hdmi hookup from TV to direct TV satellite receiver?
Asked Feb 9, 2007, 06:41 PM
Hi... I'm confused.
I just puchased a Samsung 32" lcd hd TV. It comes with 2 hdmi outputs. I also purchased a Samsung upconvert dvd player, which comes with an hdmi input... so I've connected the dvd to the TV without a problem. That leaves me with one more hdmi output on the TV... so I thought I would connect my new hd dvr direct TV receiver to my TV via hdmi. I tried... and it doesn't work... says there is no signal detected. The direct TV installer hooked it up with the red/blue/yellow/green cables and it's working fine... but I'd love to use the hdmi cable instead and get rid of all these extra cables.
Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
