Main Box Won't Connect thru HDMI but Works with Coax Cable

On my main box, all of a sudden the box won't connect thru the HDMI port even after trying multiple HDMI cables, but it works fine with a coax cable, just super grainy video quality obviously. 

 

Does anyone know of any potential troubleshooting, or am I probably looking at having to get a new box if I want HD again?

try using a different HDMI cable from one of your other devices. if not working, plug the new cable into the TV's HDMI1 or HDMI2 (a different port) and change the TV's input to that port. video working?
