1st the question.The way my tv is set up is 1 HDMI cable from tv input1 directly in Cablevision Box. Hdmi input 2 goes to the output of my Yamaha rx-v665 so I get the on screen Yapo adjusting deal. Then I run either a Toslink or RCAs out of the cable box into audio 1 of the Yamaha to pick up audio. Now I do it this way so I can have silent t.v.and listen to tunes at the same time ,I like the variety and you cannot do this w/ just 1 HDMI cable. Is there an avr w/ such a feature or am I the only one who does this?
Now the problem,last night watched t.v. everything was fine vid aud everything.This morning freaking garbage trucks are dumping dumpsters and wakes me up. So I go into the living turn on the t.v. and cable box and no video.
I'm hearing audio,no video. I go to make sure all cables are seated correctly and they are.I immediately called Cablevision and the dispatcher asked a few questions like do you see a no signal icon floating around the screen,no.Can you change inputs from your Toshiba's remote no,can you change stations w/ the cable remote yes.I see here your on chl 2 is that correct yes.She says maybe your input 1 is beat and could I switch to 2, no it's a hung t.v. and a 2 person job.Now I pulled that 2nd HDMI out of the Yammy just to see if the 1st cord was beat, no so it must be the port I guessing , they are coming anyway and if I throw the guy a $10 spot for sorting this out so be it.
