    Hey Guys,

    I've been using my PC and consoles through my Samsung tv for the last couple of years without any hitches (all use hdmi), but recently I've been encountering an issue.

    Last month I moved. Once there I set everything back up exactly as it was before, turned the PC on and everything was fine. When I tried flipping it over to the Xbox, it took a good 15 seconds for the HDMI to switch over. It also happened when it flipped over to the PS3. Also, when shutting the consoles down it sometimes refuses to switch back to the PC, unless I unplug the cable connected to the console

    It's been like this for about a month, and I've tried almost verything I can think of. I've tried swapping the cables around, getting a new cable to try and looking at my tv settings. I'm stumped.

    Does anyone know why this could have happened, and any remedies that I could try?

    Thanks all

    Screen resolutions are unchanged?

    Hmmm, good idea. I know the PC res is still the same, but the console output may be different. Now you mention it, if I put my pc to HDMI slot 2 instead of slot 1, it does give me totally different resolution options in the control panel. Do you think they could be connected?

    Probably. My plasma TV (an ancient decade-old Phillips) takes ages to change resolution.

    My TV does the same when switching between sources - Sky box and Media centre - I've not been able to solve it in 2 years - something to do with HDCP I think.

    I was thinking of doing a factory reset on the tv. Also, do you think it might be worth backing up the data on my consoles and doing clean resets on those also?

    It could just be an age thing, but I just find it so odd that it only started playing up after I moved house. The T.V is also only three years old.

    did you connect your devices up EXACTLY as before i.e. not in different HDMI slots ?

    I think so, yeah.

    Both Xbox and PS3 were set to 1080P anyhow. Would it make a difference if they were say in opposing slots?

    Also, does anyone know why my PC seems to have no problem switching to hdmi, only the consoles do?
