If the Xbox doesn't do a random reboot at any other point (during games, in the dashboard, watching movies, etc.), then I wouldn't be concerned. Just make sure your console is off before you change display inputs going forward.

Wouldn't be concerned?? BUMP please! I'd like to be able to watch a sports game or TV, and switch over to play a game without losing progress and have to reload the system every time.  If there is any fix, I'd really appreciate it as well!

It has something to do with the "handshake" that happens with HDMI. Go to system settings and find display discovery and turn it off if it's on.

If the problem persists then try a newer cable or it could be the TV itself. Older models may not keep the info from the connection active and resets the handshake.

HDMI is a two-way communicating bus, allowing a source and display device to "talk" to each other. For example, a display device (eg Plasma screen) can tell your source devcie (eg DVD) what format it wants to run in, and the DVD can output the appropriate signal. This is of course reliant on the manufacturers making their firmware compatible with this capability.

 

More than likely the TV resets communication when the source is changed.

you could try to plug in the component cables intead of the hdmi cables just to see if the problem is with the hdmi connection. you wont get a decreased quality with using the cable, its just more things to plug in instead of the single easy hdmi cable. know from what i know component is only a one way connection, so if there is a energy saver on the tv that tells the xbox to turn off, it wont happen, give that a try, it could be the settings on your tvor something.
