I use HDMI cables for everything; the blu ray players, directv, and ps3.
Yes I have the Samsung remote.
I have also turned off Anynet.
YES! That worked! However, now do I have to do that every time I want to watch? I don't want to have to unplug my satellite and plug in my blu ray every time.
I unplugged my DirectTV HDMI cable, while the satellite was on and being used, and plugged it into the blu ray player.
My TV has 4 HDMI inputs and all 4 work. I unplugged the HDMI cable from the back of the tv and tried it in all 4 ports, and it worked on each one.
Now though, I took the other HDMI cable, and plugged my Directv box in, and now the directv box is not working. It says "Mode not Supported". It is broadcasting in 1080i. I didn't do anything to the directv box.
I had two devices, each with their own HDMI cable. DirecTV and the Blu Ray player.
The DirecTV box was working fine, and the Blu Ray was not. While the DirecTV box was on, I unplugged the HDMI cable from the back of that box, and plugged it into the back of the Blu Ray player. The Blu Ray player started working.
I then took the other HDMI cable that had been originally in the back of the blu ray player, and plugged it into the back of the DirecTV box. The DirecTV box did not work.
I understand what you're saying, but the HDMI cable does work. I know this for a fact, because I plugged it into a different TV, and a different Blu Ray player, and it is working fine!
