Yesterday I did reseat the cable, but only once. I will try it again. The audio is working via ARC, and I can control the receiver volume with the remote, so the cable is definitley functioning. The problem I have is that before the reset I was able to control my Xbox and my satelitte receiver using the universal remote, but because those devices go through the receiver, the universal remote setup has to set up the receiver first. It keeps geting stuck on error while downloading. :( I can replace the cable if I absolutely have to, but that will involve completely dismounting TV from wall since I have in-wall cabling. I really don't want to have to swap the cable if it isn't the root cause of this issue. I don't understand how the HDMI cable would have anything to do with teh TV's ability to download something.
