Customer Question
I bought a Sony DVP-SR510H...
I bought a Sony DVP-SR510H player and am using an HDMI cable attached to it and my Sony TV. I set it up and turned on the DVD player and TV (and of course put a dvd into the player). I then pressed the "input" button on the TV's remote. At this point the selection didn't show "HDMI" as a choice. Please help.

When you pressed input on the tv remote, what did you see for options? Which hdmi port did you use?
