hi everyone,

I got a new philips 42 led tv. When i try to connect my hd set top box to my tv using hdmi, i get no signal all the time.i tried changing the hdmi cable port and also changed the cable ends but still no luck. Please any help would be appreciated.

first, please post you exact model number and check the support website if you have installed the latest firmware update.

Then check your STB: check the output resolutions (maybe you need to connect the STB to another TV). Maybe you need to connect - only for testing purposes - the STB with other cable (YPbPr) to your TV, to set up the STB.

Thanks for the reply, my TV model is 42pfl5606 ( 42 LED TV). I changed my resolution to 1080 but still did not work. I checked the firmware version and it shows a date of 110530.

anyone from singapore on this forum, know how to configure starhub set top box to LED tv via hdmi. If anyone can provide the steps. I tried connecting my Laptop to TV using hdmi and it was working well, only problem is with set top box now.

does your STB has other outputs than HDMI? If yes, try these...

Yes, my STB has other outputs like the traditional 3 wire (red, yello, white). I connected my TV to that and that is working fine. The only issue seems to be HDMI.

i chcked my TV firmware version and it is running the latest one as i just bough it. Any ideas as to what could be the cause of this.

Also, i checked my stb and it has the following resolutions,

576, 1080i

My hdmi cable says its 1080P. Will that cause any issue.

Hi jvdwolde

so you also got a starhub set top box from Singapore?
and this also related to this Thread?:

if yes please make a clear Statement if the Issue is really "the same" and if it is solved or not

Hi Thomas,
yes the start-up problem was caused while trying to update the TV set to work on HDMI with my set top box.
I left the AC plug out for a couple of hours and it started up again! and it works on HDMI too.
