    Hopefully somebody can help me with a problem I have trying to connect the above via a QED Quntex HDMI cable.I had previously had my 868 connected via component,to Input 3 of the HDE media box,so I unplugged the three component RCA's (as I had previously read,rightly or wrongly,that component conflicted with HDMI).With the power to both the plasma/mediabox/868 turned off,I connected the HDMI cable between the 868 & 504.I powered everything back up,and deselected component as the video source,and tried to select the HDMI menu within the initial settings menu on the 868 - the trouble being,this is permanently "greyed out",so as it can't be selected - and when I try to select it - "This operation cannot be performed" comes up.Having tried various combinations to get this all to work,I have the feeling that something is wrong somewhere - but I have posted this in the hope that I'm just plain stupid,and have overlooked something.

    So,oh wise ones,if anybody can help me,then my wife will have your babies (although she doesn't know it yet!!!!!!!! :eek: )

    I have a Pio 434 and I haven't tried it yet but I believe you first have to turn on / enable the HDMI option from one of the other menus first (somewhere in the setup options - I'm doing this from memory after my playing a couple of weeks ago) and then go to the inputs menu and select the HDMI from there!

    I think I'll pass on the baby option though, thanks all the same!
