    check to see if someone dusted your set top box and moved the ir blasters out of alignment with your set top box as well as check to make sure the ir blasters are plugged in to the google tv if need be. check your remote batteries as well.

    If all else fails you can remove the old settings and try resetting them up again from scratch.

    I just registered here to ask the same question. Suddenly when I turn on the TV and click live tv the only thing i can see is the the TV screensaver. If i unplug the cable box and plug back in it works but I dont have the patience to do that every day. Cable company said they see no errors on there end and to ask GTV.

    What happens when you press [Ctrl]+[Alt]+[Del] to reboot it instead of unplugging it? Does the picture come back? Might want to check if someone has been messing around with your cables. Or if your cable company recently pushed a firmware update for your cable box. As the lost of picture is indicative of the HDCP handshake being lost and the set-top box refraining from projecting a picture.

    It seems to be working now as long as I turn the cable box on first and then the Sony player and then the avr. Any other way and it either has no sound or no picture.. I didn't have to do that before. I used to only turn off/on the TV and everything always stayed on.

    Can anyone recommend a dual head ir blaster to buy? One came with my Sony GTV, but I see where there is another port and I want to use that up.
