    Hi,
    I'm going to purchase a 504hde but I have a couple of questions I was hoping someone could answer.

    I downloaded the instruction manual for the plasma, and couldn't find any info about a digital HDMI input....I'm pretty certain that it has one.....was it added after the manual was printed????

    which input is the HDMI port associated with (I thought it was a bit silly to associate both the component and svideo with input3...and having nothing but scart for input 1&2)

    Why does the manual state that a decoder (cable box, sat box) should be connected to input 1

    from the instruction manual....
    Selecting a decoder input terminal
    If you have connected a decoder, select a decoder input
    terminal (INPUT1). (page 33)

    Thanks for your help

    Yes it's got one HDMI port on input 3... Yes you're right 'it was a bit silly' (understatement - stop it..!)...

    Connect a cable box to input 1 for two reasons, one it is RGB and two the the media box switches on to input 1 by default when you first turn on the system (by pressing 1-9 - RF by pressing 0)...

    I had the same query originally. There is a two page addendum to cover HDMI. You will find the link somewhere in the other 434/534 threads. When I open trhe media box for my 434 last week it was already included there....
