Hi need Help with this issue. I have a 37 inch Veon Tv and a Veon Blu-Ray Player I have my HDMI cable connected in the right places. When I go to put Blu-ray on it shows up on HDMI and Then The Tv flicks it back to DVI and can't see or hear or play disc, I don't know how to fix this or why is it happening. Can anyone Help a girl in distress? :D

DVI? You have a computer plugged into it as well?

I'd purely be guessing - but...

Is the TV full HD? If the Blue-ray defaults to putting out a Full-HD picture and teh TV cant handle it it may do something like switching to another input - though that is odd behaviour

Maybe try another HDMI cable if you have one handy.

Have you tried switching both devices off and turning them back on (leave the HDMI cable connected though). Could be they just arent talking to each other properly - some devices apparently dont like haveing HDMI cables plugged in while they are running.

I was unable to get sound on a computer thru my 24" veon because it showed as a dvi device. Hdmi has 2 parts of the spec that cover device ID. One is CEC for consumer video formats, one is VESA for the pc monitor formats. The veon ids itself as a monitor with no sound and that's what you get.

A nifty HDCP removing splitter that always showed as a TV made mine work.

Are both devices veon? I'd put it to the warehouse to solve if they are.

It's technologies way of telling you not to buy Veon equipment.
Get a refund from the Warehouse and buy one of their Sony or Samsung setups, your eyes and ears... and sanity, will thank you.

And I have had the opposite problem. Computer monitors and projectors saying to the computer via HDMI that they are TVs. Which means no sound from the computer sound card because the audio is being sent to a device that doesn't have speakers or anything else audio related in it. You change the default output device to the correct one which works until you next plug your laptop into the monitor or projector. Which then breaks the audio again.

The other members of the BNI chapter that I attend have switched to using VGA instead of HDMI for connecting their laptops to the projector. Because it just works.

I also know someone who has a 40" TV that you can't watch BluRay's  on in HD. (TV doesn't support HDCP) Which means he has to torrent movies if he wants to watch them in HD.

Hdcp is nothing to do with devices showing if they do or do not support audio. That is done in the edid. Cheap hdmi splitters just say they do all modes to the source and send it out all ports. This can be a problem with some hdmi to something else converters that lack scalers but in all honesty is better than the legit splitters that make everything renegotiate whenever a screen is turned on or off.

This is just a case of cheap tv factory paid to put veon on cheap tvs not testing their tvs with a bluray player from a totally different company also paid to put veon on the front of their products.

Had a play with a veon tv some time ago and found I had to select the hdmi input and press enter for it to stay on that input. this was some time ago.

Thanks everyone for your input :P With trying some of your ideas, I use to have it running through Av, so I've gone back to that with the hdmi plug still connected. Put on a movie and a message saying output for resolution too high needs to be lower press hdmi key and presto movie playing in higher definition, totally weird and backwards. Cheap parts and wiring  and mixed messages I guess. :D
