Windows 7: HDMI PC to TV

HDMI PC to TV

I am really starting to hate HDMI port I've never had as many problems with VGA/DVI/RCA out to anything as I do with !#@$!@$ HDMI on multiple PC platforms.

back to the problem.
until recently my HTPC(ATI 6900 series) was outputting fine to LG TV. It would recognize display on boot as long as tv was on. A few weeks ago it started to no longer be able to do so. It would sometimes recognize it on boot and sometimes it wont. The only solution I found is pluging/unpluging cable 10+ times would sometimes fix it or rebooting PC about the same amount of times.

So far I've done
I've tried different cable - not the problem
updated ATI graphics driver to 12.8 - that would not interfere with on boot detection anyways

any thoughts? Is graphics card dying again? Its only about 7 months old ... and I havent overclocked or used it for anything much other than playing movies...

I am also thinking to flash video card bios to fix this but have never done it before and am apprehensive. Other than that I am out of ideas as I havent done anything in MB bios for ages.

I posted a very similar problem:

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 HDMI connection to SHARP AQUOS HDTV

After making several attempts to google the problem the only answer i can come up with is that there is a problem AMD drivers supporting HDMI connections. Hopefully someone can answer our calls for help!

Well I use HDMI PC to TV all the time when watching movies and YouTube but I use a Nvidia Geforce 210, but what I did was edit the TV settings using the included Nvidia Control Panel. I think ATI has something similar to that, so I suggest trying trial and error to find a setting that works from there (Resolution, Refresh Rate, etc.) hope that helps =)
