IMPORTANT: If by using one of these HDMI TV Video sources (NOT A COMPUTER) you can see the HDMI, it means you need to adjust the other non working HDMI source to output a proper TV compatible format same as the working one.
If it is a computer, please check the output refresh rate, upgrade the firmware of the video card, disable Non-TV resolution etc.
If the format is made same as the working HDMI source TV standard, it will work the same.

IMPORTANT: When using a Satellite or cable Set Top Box we strongly recommend to use a FIXED EDID such as 1080p or 1080i or 720P for the best performances.
