Every time I change the input mode on my TV it resets the system, this never used to happen before.

I run an HDMI cable for the 360 and for the DVR box. It happens when I use the remote or when I use the controls built into the back of the TV to change the input mode.

The only thing that's changed from last week to now is two things....

1. The last dashboard update.
2. I carved up the standard RCA video cable that came with the 360 so I could have headphones.

So which one is causing it and how do I fix it???

This used to happen to me. I think it stopped when I got a new TV, really not sure what caused it.

Sorry I can't be more help, bud. Hopefully someone a little more versed in TV understanding will be able to help, if not, my suggestion is a new TV!

Navigate your TV menu and turn HDMI CEC off.

It's that.

Do what kungfucolin said and see if that fixes it, but if not you just need to either live with it (don't sit on the remote while you're gaming) or you may want to see if getting a dongle that doesn't give you that problem. It is said that the dongle found at monoprice.com doesn't give that issue, and monoprice.com sells them for cheap. Unfortunately they are extrememly popular and usually out of stock. Get on their email list and you'll get one eventually.

All I did was remove the plastic part of the plug near the end that goes into the 360 and cut a section out of it with a dremel, I never cut up the cord itself, that's still intact.

Right, but you are also using HDMI? It's an HCDP issue, IIRC, because the 360 has two video options plugged into it. Even though the RCA cable cord will not display video, it's still doing something to screw with the HDCP handshake with the TV. There's supposedly a wire you can cut/solder to fix the problem, or you could get a dongle that doesn't give you this issue.

My 360 was doing the same thing until I disabled Display Discovery.

Oh yeah, that's another thing that could fix it.

Does anyone know if the GameStop brand audio dongle has the HDCP issue?

Mostly curious for future reference for topics such as this.

Disabling the display discovery didn't work.

The only thing that worked was pulling the RCA cord, so that is the cause of the problem.
