Yep! Sure have!

It is not an easy fix, it also isn't covered by most manufacturers warrantees....

I have had no issues with HDMI anything in months maybe even over a year now. When it first hit the market it was a mess but I'd argue it's stable and very reliable. Never had an issue with PCB break either. I wish cable companies would make the casing around the end of their HDMI cables less bulky though. I've had to essentially lose an imput to allow for bulky connectors. These instances are fewer and far between but never the less if you have a manufacturer trying to squeeze inputs into a tight space you may not be able to use all of the HDMI inputs.
