Hi,

I hope somebody cn help me although I am a bit naive when it comes to electrical equipment.

I have just purchased a pioneer PDP 428xd plasma and I note from the instruction manual that it should have 3 HDMI input sockets (numbered 4,5 and 6 in the instruction manual) however on looking at the tv itself it only appears to have 1 HDMI input socket.
Is this right or is my TV not correct.

I would really appreciate it if somebody can help as it is driving me nuts

Many thanks

7 PC INPUT terminal (Analogue RGB)
8 COMMON INTERFACE slot

9 ANT (Antenna) input terminal
• Power can be supplied through this terminal
10 INPUT 1 terminal (SCART)
11 INPUT 2 terminal (SCART)
12 INPUT 3 terminal (SCART)
13 INPUT 2 terminals (Audio)
14 INPUT 2 terminals (COMPONENT VIDEO: Y, PB, PR)
15 AUDIO OUT terminals
16 SUBWOOFER output terminal
17 PC INPUT terminal (Audio)
18 DIGITAL OUT terminal (OPTICAL)

If it doesn't have 3 HDMI, lord knows what I have plugged in where :eek:
Are you receiving signal from your HDMI device? Input 4 is dedicated to HDMI, the rest have to be enabled.

Heh, I was meaning that if it doesn't have said HDMI ports, I have a lot of HDMI plugged into random holes that seem to be functioning as them :D

:confused:

What have you plugged in and to what sockets?
Was it a brand new set, I was wondering if you bought second hand, as the 4270 only had 1 HDMI socket.

NyseriA is posting tongue in cheek remarks...the OP is the person who has had the issue. ;)
