Default Help! A1 doesn't link to HDMI anymore!

It used to do it fine and then one day out of no where it stopped playing my transformer HDDVD. I tried everything and out of desperation i hit the inilization option and now it won't connect using HDMI!

I'm really frustrated. It used to do it fine. I just got the fireware disc from toshiba and that didn't help(it was updated before). Anyone have any suggestions?

Not sure, did you contact Customer Support?

Might be time to look to upgrade...Grab an A2 if you can find one, MUCH better model than the A3.

Hope you figure out the problem..

The default video output on the A1/XA1 was component; when you initialized, it probably re-set to component output instead of HDMI. Use the V.Output button on your remote until you see the small HDMI lite on the LED.

If that doesn't work, connect a composite cable (the yellow RCA jack cable) to your TV so you can see the menus and go into Setup and check your player's settings.

If you have one , make sure the video switch is in the right position.

That's what it was!!!! It fixed it!!!! Thank you thank you thank you! I would hug you if you were in the same room!!!

I was really worried and was sad because I thought I had to buy a new one...

My trasformer HDDVD also works now : )

DTS Master Audio through Optical connection. The A3 cannot do that.

How should that work? To my knowledge digital optical hasn't nearly as enough bandwidth to accompany DTS HD Master Audio.

Or did you mean normal (non-HD) DTS?
