When I get home I find the following:
Sky works but nothing on xbox input channel. I subsequently start playing around with the connections to find that HDMI 2 ( out of 3 HDMI ports ) on telly doesn't now work at all - have tried skybox, ps3 and dvd player with a number of different cables as well. That's problem number 1.
Xbox also now doesn't display on any of the HDMI inputs and have also tried different cables so I'm thinking the HDMI port on the xbox has been fried. Problem 2.
They can't find the xbox avi lead ( Red, White and Yellow connections ) that offers an alternative connection method. Problem 3. I need to buy a replacment..
So...Is it possible that plugging in the hdmi lead while things have been powetred on has shorted both the xbox and the TV HDMI ports? I can't check if its a handshaking xbox issue as I currently cant connect it up other than using an HDMI connector but I'm guessing even if I buy the avi lead and get a picture etc its a physical HDMI port issue ?
Any pointers or tips that I may have missed?
