    Ok folks I got my hdtv all hooked up about a week ago and it worked fine and dandy. Then I left the cable box on yesterday and turned the tv off. Now the screen goes blank after a few seconds of picture showing. The only way to get it to show again is to unplug it and try again and then it does the same thing? Any ideas? Thanks

    Our TV at work is connected by a 85 foot HDMI cable, which is close to the maximum length that it will pass a signal. Anyway, we have to turn the TV on after the cable box/DVD player is turned on, or it will not work properly and the picture flashes on and off. Turning the TV off for 15 seconds and back on will fix the problem.
