    Hey guys,
    I've recently purchased a brand new 3rd Gen ATV and was disappointed upon connecting it to my Panasonic Viera Plasma TV, the ATV lights are on but I get a blank screen. I get the exact same result when I connected it to the other TV in my house (Sony Bravia LCD).

    However, the Apple TV shows up when it was connected to a few of my PC monitors.

    • I've tried different HDMI cables ( 1.4 )
    • I've changed resolutions and colour profiles
    • I've restored it to the latest firmware
    Did anyone run into the same problem as me?

    Yes I have! After changing resolutions manually and none of them working, I set it back to auto which was the default option.

    FWIW, my ATV3 works fine with my Sony Bravia. Perhaps there's a hardware problem with the one you bought?
