      Any experience with connecting Canon HF200 to Sony TV by HDMI? I am getting “no signal.” Camera plays back through its own LCD, and through component inputs. Any help?

      Are you sure that the TV is set for input on the correct HDMI port? I’ve nearly swore that there was a TV problem numerous times when the TV was set to a different input than that of which the RCAwires were connected.

      I have the same issue connecting my HF200 to my Samsung TV. The video is playing on both built-in LCD and via component but not thru HDMI. I also get the No Signal error. Any suggestions? TIA!

      HDMI and Component Video, at this point,are one of the many HD communications which I’ve never had to deal with. I’m still shooting SD… don’t even own a flat panel TV other then a few 17″ Dell monitors around the house. Are you sure that your play tests are being done in VCR (Playback) mode? Due to a special trend in the camcorder’s firmware settings, it may not be capable of outputting HDMI of the camera is not in its proprietary VCR/Playback mode.

      I’ve just bought the HF200 UK Model and have the same issue connecting to 2 HDTVs, one is a Panasonic and the other is a Samsung.

      There doesn’t appear to be anything helpful in the manual, apart from plug the cable into camcorder and TV !!. I can get a picture via AV connections and on the camcorder’s LCD screen.

      Thanks in advance for any solution.

      I have a slight problem with the HF200 , cos for some reasons , when i
      hooked it up with the HDMI cable ( the mini-hdmi to normal hdmi) the LG
      tv recingised it being plugged in but it didnt get a signal. It can only
      be play on its lil LCD screen

      First thing came to my mind is damn the TV is messed up, but when I try
      others HDMI devices on the tv with the same port it is all fine.

      Then I thought, well must be the HDMI port on the HF200 is messed up,
      took it upstair hook it up with another LG HD tv and guess what ! it is
      running perfectly fine with no problems , stunning sound and everything

      So now I kinda diagnosed that it is not the TV problem nor the HF200

      a bit of extra information, the LCD HD tv that didnt work with HF200 is
      47LH3000 , and the one compatible with is LG M227WD

      did anyone get a solution for that?
