In August, I tried to connect my computer (specs in my sig) to my 26" Visio LCD TV. That experience resulted in a melted HDMI cable, 1 melted graphics card, and 1 terminally damaged TV. Today, against my better judgement, I made an attempt to connect my 32" Vizio LCD TV to my computer again. I proceded by shutting down my computer and turning off the TV. Upon attempting to make the connection, there was a spark...which resulted in a melted HDMI port on the TV and another melted HDMI cable. Fortunately, no damage was done to my graphics card this time. Not sure I could deal with another 4 weeks without a graphics card.... So, is there any explanation as to why there would be a spark while trying to connect a computer to an LCD TV via HDMI, while both are turned off??? I've connected DVD and Blu-Ray players via HDMI in the past with both TV and player turned on with no issues....as well as my HD4850, GT240 and GTX275. Is there some inherent problem with HDMI 1.4a on the GTX460 that's causing this to occur?
