    My Hisense HD LCD TV does not like the screen saver signal coming from the ATV.

    The unit works fine when you turn it on, but if it goes into the screen saver mode, the TV can't reconcile the signal and has a fit. Once it does that I can't get it back without restarting the ATV.

    The only way I could get around it was to plug it in using the component connections.

    Any one else run into this issue before?

    Works find on both my Pioneer and Sony TV's. Did you try using different resolutions over HDMI, maybe that would make a difference - something like 1080i might help.

    Seems odd though that the content would play, but the screen saver won't...

    how do you change resolutions?

    I thought the ATV only put out a single resolution?

    It is in the setup menus. There are a number of choices at least 720p, 1080i, and 1080p...
