I have a Plasma TV and it has two HDMI ports. I have my HD satellite box hooked up to one and my Playstation3 hooked up on the HDMI-2. When I change it to HDMI-2 wether it is the satellite or the Playstation, nothing happens. I just get a black screen and no sound. Both work when in HDMI-1 but nothing in HDMI-2. Now I have to swap cables back and forth through HDMI-1. Any ideas??
Its not something stupid like the TV taking a few seconds to try and work out the signal resolution and staying blank for a while is it? Are you giving it quite a few seconds before deciding it doesnt work - sorry - someone needs to ask :-)

Thanks for the imput, I have left it on for a minute and I have tried both things in the hdmi-1 port and they both work. The second port worked before, but just stopped working at some point. It's a philips plasma.

That's certainly sounding like a genuine fault. If the TV is old enough to be out of warranty, you could have a repairer take a look at it. Alternatively you might consider that it would be more cost effective to live with one working HDMI input and buy a HDMI switching unit like Avtek Y-5510 HDMI Switch, 5 in 1 out That's not a recommendation for that particular unit - just the first that I found in a quick search.
