Have my Cogeco box hooked into a Pioneer VSX-920-K via dvi to hdmi cable with the hdmi out from the receiver to my LG 50PK750 and when I turn the cable box on the picture comes on for about 2 secs. flashes once then turns off. I checked all cables and all connections are good. It plays a bd fine.??????

If the cable box works fine to your tv through the HDMI-DVI connection then is the same issue I had when I connected using the DVI output to the hdmi connection on my receiver (with an HDMI-DVI connector). It appears to be the handshake between the cable box and tv through HDMI. I just went and bought a different receiver (I had bought a new one so just returned what I bought). The new one I bought converted everything to HDMI so I just run component cables from the cable box and the receiver outputs everything to HDMI. That might not be a solution for you.

What you can try is the order of how you turn things on. I read that solution somewhere but it did not work for me, that is why I switched the receiver.

Neither the box or the receiver or the tv turns off,it just doesn't show a picture. After further investigation with a dvi to hdmi it's not sending an audio signal anyway so going from the cogeco box to the tv with a dvi to hdmi cable and an optical to the Pioneer will be my only option
