No HDMI output = Dead Boxee Box?
My BB was working fine. It was on for the good part of one day, and we were watching sports on TV. I imagine the BB was in screen saver mode, however, when I switched back to the BB input, there was no signal detected.
I tried rebooting the BB several times, and there is still no signal detected.
I tried several other HDMI cables, and other inputs on my TV, with the same results
I also tried the factory reset (yellow) mode, nothing happened. Also, held it longer to get the RED BB logo, and still, no results.
It seems to turn on fine, its lights up like usual, but there is nothing being sent to the TV.
My TV Samsung LNT4661f skips inputs if there is no connection detected, and then if there is no signal, it shows "no signal". Nothing has changed recently in my setup, it was working earlier in the day, and now it isn't.
I made a support ticket, however, I am thinking the outcome is not going to be much more than "return to Amazon for a replacement" as per this similar thread http://forums.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=21966
I would rather not be without my BB for a few days while I wait for the Amazon replacement, so I figured I would check if anybody had any ideas before I sent it back
