I was going to...

I was going to install a DVD player on TV and then decided not to. Now I got this on my televistion screen in upper left corner of screen, "HDMI1". In middle of screen I see this, "No Cable Connected, HDMI1". I am getting a sence that I need to change my source device back to "TV" from HDMI1. Is this wright about changing source? Don't know how to do this. A person at Bed Bath Beyond did this. Should have watch this closer.

Technician's Assistant: Are there any HDMI cables or A/V jacks (red, yellow, and white cables) plugged into your TV?

No cables on back. Just a digital audio out let

Technician's Assistant: Was there a power outage recently?
