Experiencing same problem _with_ certified HDMI 1.3 cable
I have experienced the exact same problem as this user reports. I have the UE40B7070 LED TV together with HT-BD8200. Had immense troubles in the start - but at least after upgrading firmware on both the TV and the 8200 - the "mode not supported" message does not appear as long as I am careful to turn on the system (with AnyNet) using the HT-BD8200 remote, and not the TV remote (but the error message still appears if I use the TV remote - pretty ridiculous, but that's how it is.)
And yes, I am using a certified HDMI 1.3 cable.
Apart from that I am very pleased with the TV, and rather pleased with the HT-BD8200 (for what it is). If the next firmware release (I sincerely hope there will be one - it needs it) contains an easy-to-use equaliser (which would be no problem as there's already a DSP in the box), then I'd give the HT-BD8200 4 out 5 stars. Now, without an equaliser it hasn't quite reached its natural potential, as - even if it plays e.g. BlueRay's and DVD's usually very beautifully (after the first firmware-upgrade, that is ) - when using the optical audio in from the TV, there is no way to equalise the audio signal (which can be a problem, as TV stations are not always that good to provide optimal equalisation of their audio).
So, don't be hesitant to push even more firmware updates for the HT-BD8200, and it will become what it aspires to be - a product in a class of its own BTW: The YouTube app on the 8200 is fairly good - but please include the ability to toggle HD/non-HD versions of the movies in your next firmware upgrade. The only way to play "HD" movies from YouTube now is to play movies that are "HD-only"...
