    Default Why won't my TV recognize the Apple TV?

    So far:
    AT power cord in unit and to power source
    HDMI cable from AT to HDMI port 3 on side of Sony Bravia HD TV
    HDMI 3 is enabled in my Menu/Manage Input of the tv

    I have AT&T Uverse. I turn the tv off, use the AT remote to turn it on and nothing happens. I have yet to see the the AT screen
    I have unplugged for 30 secs, checked all plugs
    My cable box/DVR is plugged into the HDMI port 2 on the tv

    It's 1:16 am and I'm really pissed. Tried to call 1-800-myapple but they are closed.

    Try hdmi 1 or 2 just to check that it's not an issue with the TV ports.
    Try a different hdmi cable to check for cable issues.
    Connect the ATV to your PC or Mac and open iTunes to see if iTunes recognizes it. If so try a restore off e software on the ATV using iTunes and then hook it back up to your TV.
