Question Xbox 360/tech/computer/TV Geeks Out There, HELP!

My fiance just bought me a new 37" LCD flatscreen Toshiba HD 1080p TV. (all those fancy numbers and letters lol)
I have an Xbox 360 that we use to watch netflix on a lot.

Since we got the new TV, after each episode of a show, the TV goes to a black screen that says something like no signal, but the xbox is still running.....?
This never happened with our old 20" TV...

Ive tried googling and couldnt find what I was looking for.

(Xbox is hooked up to HDMI cable)


Id appreciate any help I can get! thanks guys.

That's kinda wierd, I've never heard of a TV doing that before. I'm assuming you've checked all your setting tools, right?

Thats weird since the "no signal" screen should only appear when the TV is on the wrong input or source. Not after watching a program. Does your TV have another HDMI port? Try switching ports if it does.

If you hit any buttons does it come back on or wil lit stay at "no signal" no matter what you do unless you restart the xbox or tv?

I run my computer and xbox 360 through my lcd tv and sometimes it gets that no signal message, but usually its just a temporary thing where it registers a stop in signal. It might also be looking for a signal from a different port for some reason, but that I coudlnt explain...especially since its new.
