TV loses signal from 360 box when we change HDMI input
4 weeks ago
We upgraded from an older Tivo box to a 360 box over the weekend and it's not working perfectly with our TV/soundbar set up. Everything seems to be working fine when we watch TV from Virgin, but if we change the HDMI input on the TV, to watch something via an Amazon fire stick for example, when we go back to the HMDI input for the 360 box we appear to have no signal. If I then turn the 360 box off and back on again, or unplug the HDMI cable from the TV and plug it back in again, the TV recognises the signal and it works fine again.
We didn't have this problem with the old Tivo box. We do have quite an old HDMI cable running from the cabinet where the box is to the TV. Is it possible that the cable is less compatible with the new 360 box? It runs through the wall, so not easy to replace.
Our set up is 360 box connected via HDMI to a Panasonic TV, and then the TV is connected to a Yamaha soundbar via HDMI ARC. Aside from this issue, everything is working fine. The 360 remote turns on the TV and the soundbar, controls the soundbar volume and can control the TV input as well.
Any suggestions for how to fix this, preferably that doesn't involve replacing the HDMI cable? Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion. Changing the output to 1080p on the 360 box didn't fix it, but taking it down to 720 did. It's a bit strange, as the resolution is normally 1080p when we are watching TV from the 360 box.
Our Panasonic TV must be around ten years old. Could that part of the problem?
