Re: New install, blank blue screen

Blue screens are typically a HDMI handshaking issue between the TV and the set top box.  if your still getting it, unplug the TV and the set top box for a minute, power up the TV first, then the set top box.


Sometimes HDMI issues are troublesome, and a work around might be to switch to component cables, which will still give you 1080I resolution to the TV.
