Ok I just fixed it, tholught I would shre it with everyone:
I noticed that after changing the TV input to dish-TV setting (which was via a different HDMI TV connector) a problem was listed on the screen. The satellite box (dishnetwork) message stated an issue with the HDMI connection and would not display a TV show, only satellite guide info. This lead me to suspect the TV instead of the PS3. So I powered everything down (TV, PS3, satellite box) and then turned off the surge protector. After a minute, I powered everything back on and the PS3, satellite, TV was working as it had been doing the previous day.
I believe that the TV got into a weird state and was unable to perform the standard HDMI handshaking. Thus, a million reboots by the PS3 would have never solved the problem, but a reboot of the HDTV would fix it; as it did. During the many PS3 reboots I frantically performed, the PS3 was very quiet making me think that something was very wrong with the PS3, such as the hdd was bad or the OS was corrupt. But since it was a relatively easy and painless fix I thought I'd put the process up here for anyone else having a similar problem.

I encountered the same problem this morning. I almost started to panic until I came across gothikboi's post and resetted my HDTV. It worked like a charm! Thanks alot.
