TV won't access DirecTV box when turned on

gmangoodfella

OK just had my direcTV installed today and everything seemed to be working fine.  Then the installer left and I finally decided to turn the TV off (the remote has been programmed to turn off both the TV and DirecTV DVR box).  Both items turned off appropriately.  Later, I went to turn them back on again - both the TV AND the box turned ON, but there was nothing showing on the TV.  The TV is definitely on the correct HDMI source.  If I unplug the HDMI cable at the back of the TV or the back of the DVR box and plug it back in, the program shows up immediately.  Why won't my TV access the DVR box when turning them both back on?

 

Thanks for any input
