I got Xbox One and PVR box, every time I use my Xbox my PVR signal is lost when I want to watch the TV. TV is connected to HDMI 1 and Xbox to HDMI 3. Connecting PVR to Xbox have no problem, but I want it separated. Can someone Help me what to do?
Xbox is connected to HDMI3, TV is connected to HDMI1 on what? Audio receiver?
oooops, my bad, PVR box is connected to HDMI 1 not the TV. Sorry!
HDMI1 and HDMI3 are on your TV then? Or an another receiver?
If on your TV, you play Xbox, go back to TV, and it says No Signal
If you push channel +/- on the PVR remote, does the picture come back? Power off/on the PVR?
Which model of PVR?
Yes, HDMI is on my TV. It says no signal on the TV screen after playing Xbox then switching to TV. Nothing happened when I push the channel +/- and power off/on on the remote. PVR is HD Dual Tuner DVR, Motorola , DCX3510-M.
The TV signal turns back on if I will unplug then plug the Xbox HDMI cable while tuned in the TV. Xbox is turned off at that time.
Good evening, jc59onie
The simplest way to connect your Xbox One and your HDPVR would be to just have an HDMI cable going from the Xbox One to the TV, and then a separate HDMI cable going from the HDPVR to the TV. The Xbox One and HDPVR would not be connected to each other in any way. If you are already setup like this, you should be able to toggle between the Xbox One and HDPVR by using the Input (or Source) button on your original television remote. It sounds like your Xbox One may be automatically switching to the correct input (HDMI3) when turned on, and if so, you would need to manually switch back to HDMI1 with your television remote to return to live television after turning the Xbox One off. Please let us know if changing the input does not resolve this issue, and we can certainly troubleshoot further.
Thank you for your response. Yes that's how my Xbox and HDPVR are set up, one HDMI cable each connected to TV. I tried several times to toggle watching from Xbox to PVR but still it did'nt work, it only works when I unplug then plug again the Xbox HDMI cable. I don't know what's going on but it should work having separate HDMI cables. I have no problem if the PVR is connected to the Xbox console, but my wife want's it separated so that she won't be confused to switch on the TV. Still waiting for a best working solution.
One other option may be to connect the Shaw PVR using component cables, as this seems to be an HDMI handshaking issue. After switching the inputs have you tried turning the TV off and back on instead to re-initiate the HDMI handshake?
Have you tried a new cable?
I had a problem with a TV years ago, similar problem, it wouldn't recognize a given source unless I unplugged the cable and plugged it back in,
Funny thing was, same cable on another TV worked fine,
But I still have that TV and it doesn't work with HDMI from the gateway, I think cause its an older HDMI version
Why not run the PVR to the Xbox one, then you just say "Xbox go to TV" no need for remote to change source,
which is handy if you have a gateway and all you have is that useless remote they give you.
Hey jc59onie. The consensus seems to be leaning towards it being an issue with the HDMI cable. Do you have another one that you can swap out with just to test?
