Yes, I tried that and then the tv failed to recognise that connection!
I am happy to try this - are you suggesting that the bd player has not started up correctly? If this works should it continue to work via the switch box? Final question - why does the tv fail to recognise the connection - is that caused by the player?
Good evening Shahid, rather belatedly here is the result of your advice - a perfect result, everything works perfectly (although I need to check that my games console still works but I don't expect problems). Thank you for the clear and simple instructions on what to do - my wife and I had read and re-read the instructions which came with the dvd player but there was nothing on what to do if the connection failed. Once again, thank you
