help i was watching TV and my screen went blank . tried my DVD thats OK so i changed from HDMI 1 over to HDMI 2 and nothing . so i called videotron
long story short now my connection is component the cable guy told me that my HDMI cable is no good . how did that happen just like that ? is this true ?
he toled me that component is the same as HDMI is this true ? where do i start to find the real problem could it be my new TV or the illico box both are 3 month old.
Component is not the same as HDMI, physically or quality-wise.
Component consists of 5 cables (red, green, blue, and often, 2 attached audio). It is an analog signal.
HDMI is a single cable with a "D" shell that carries both video and audio. It is a digital signal.
If you can play DVDs OK, then the problem is probably with your cable box.
