Both TV's work fine, Xbox360 Composite works fine, and the laptop and DVD player used to test the HDMI cable (on both TV's) both function perfectly. Console is a 3rd Gen Elite
Usual TV is a Vizio VW32L HDTV10A @ 1080i. Used the bigger Vizio VL470M @ 1080p. 4 hours of Life was peachy.
Upon exiting to the dashboard, I changed the video mode back to 1080i, and moved the console back to the 32".
This is when the terror began.
Back on the 32", I get a static white and black screen, with all kinds of random horizontal lines and chunks of both colors. The TV reports an astonishing resolution of 1958x1154@194hz. Yes, 194hz.
Back again to the 47", I find that after it acquires the source, I have a black screen. The TV is changing resolutions randomly, and to some weird ones, may I add. ((Is this what's called auto-scaling?))
36x1151 (Yes, you read right), 1958x1150, 1958x1151, 1958x1152, 1958x1153, 1958x1154, 1922x1151, 1994x1153, 1922x1155, 1994x1150, 1994x1155 and 1080i. In No Particular Order... With 0hz as the refresh rate...
I've tested the cable with an HP dv4 laptop @ 720i & 1080i, and a Panasonic P-DVD Upscaled to/@ 1080p. On the 47" it supported 1080p flawlessly, 1080i on the 32".
If I had to assume, I would lean toward there being an issue somewhere in the physical HDMI port. I know the GPU is embedded, but the routing for the Standard A/V and the HDMI have to be pipelined differently...
I really hope the HDMI isn't FUBAR... If I've missed any detail, please let me know and I will fill you in.
Thanks for your time.
