I have brand spanking new Philips TV, bought it yesterday and it’s doing the exact same thing! I’ve tried all the fixes mentioned but nothing works.
What model of Philips TV do you have? Just to clarify, are you able to get a picture from the set-top box, and is the problem that when you turn both on at the same time, you need to reboot the set-top box in order to get a successful HDMI connection?
@WonderWoman1824 It's definitely an HDMI handshake issue. It could be due to an incompatibility with the set-top box (potentially fixed by or caused by a firmware update on either device) or it's possible that both the TV and STB are fine but there is a problem with your brand/model of HDMI cable.
I'll do some research to see if I can find anyone else reporting any problems with an Xi6 set-top box connecting to a Philips TV.
@WonderWoman1824 : Here are a few comments/questions.
1. Are you using the Rogers remote to turn on the Rogers box and the TV?
2. Have you programmed the Rogers remote to properly turn on your various devices?
3. Check out the following post on issues that can cause this sort of problem:
4. As a temporary test, go into the Rogers Box Settings and set the video output of the box to 1080i, not Auto. It's definitely a handshake issue as mentioned earlier. Just because an HDMI cable is new, doesn't mean that it has the appropriate specifications to send 4K signals, although the one that comes with the Rogers box should be adequate.
