I doubted it too, but this cable has been weird when connecting my wife's laptop to the receiver as well. I took the laptop and cable downstairs and tried to hook it up to the receiver (in several different input slots) and it didn't work. Then I unhooked the DVD player's cable from the back of the DVD player and plugged it into the laptop, then it worked fine.
Then I hooked the messed up cable to the laptop and hooked it into the back of the receiver into the DVD player's slot and it wouldn't work. Then I tried the messed up cable in other open slots on the receiver again and it also wouldn't work.
If I could get one of the other HDMI cables free and take it upstairs to the original TV, I think that would be about the last test I could run to make me think it's definitely the cable.
