Yesterday I turned the box on to set a couple of recordings, went out for the evening and on my return tried to turn the box on to watch them. It put up the Humax splash screen and then went blank. I tried the hold the button down to reset the box, nothing apart from Humax. I turned it off and on, nothing apart from Humax. I tried master reset but could not see anything on the screen. I reported my problems briefly on the new software release Jan 2013 thread. This morning I used a computer to check the internet connection was OK and tried again, just the Humax splash screen. I then connected it via SCART and got a picture which was in the basic set up. I set it up, put it in low eco mode, checked I could watch TV, use Players and watch recordings. I then turned it off, changed to HDMI cable and turned on, just the Humax splash screen then nothing. The TV switches back to TV mode at the end of the splash screen as though the Humax box is 'releasing' the HDMI connection. One of my recordings is only part recorded so only got the first one. The TV is a Panasonic TX-32LXD60 and the combination has worked OK since the start of the trail. The Humax is updated to latest software, on 17th Jan I think.
You do want to try swapping HDMI cables and the other usual suggestions you will find searching this forum for solving HDMI problems first.
In the latest software there is a setting to control the HDMI resolution, the 32LXD60 is not Full 1080p HD, it is a 720p display, connect by SCART and set the HDMI Output to 720p, and then power cycle the Humax T1000. See if this helps.
