HDMI out

[ Edited ]

I received literature with my DX735-D3204 that showed both an HDMI in and a HDMI out but I cannot find a model for sale with this option mine only has the HDMI in. I was wondering if Toshiba is going to make one or if one can be special ordered with this option.

HDMI in

When  I plugged my PS3 and DVD player into the HDMI in it wouldn't work, so now I have to send in for repair or replacement :smileysad:

Re: HDMI in

I am now on my second computer(DX735-D3204) and the HDMI-IN still does not work. I have spent hours with Tech support and an engineer and still no resolution to this problem. Has anyone else had any luck with their HDMI-In?

Re: HDMI in

I have been trying to connect my cable box via HDMI (coax input works fine) but no signal. Support says it "should" work...

Re: HDMI in

and btw, the quick tour sheets that came with my DX735-D3204 shows both hdmi in and out, but I only have one port, and it is not marked in or out, just the hdmi symbol.... could be an out port for all I know...

Re: HDMI in

It is not an  HDMI- out either I have tried it as an out and no dice. I have talked to tech support numerous times and still have no resolution to this issue. I have replaced the computer once and the 2nd one did not work either I am guessing none of their HDMI -In ports actually function as advertised.

Re: HDMI in

Finally I got a hold of a Toshiba engineer who tried using the HDMI-In port and couldn't get it to work, he then got ahold of another Toshiba engineer that told him there is a button on the left side, second one from the top it has circle with an arrow icon, this switches to the HDMI input. I also asked him about using with a satellite receiver or any receiver with an HDMI-out you must use this the same way. This means you cannot use Wndows media center or the DVR function with the HDMI-In. The computer then acts as a TV monitor only. I have to use a RF modulator to hook my Direct tV satellite receiver into the coax in from the HDMI-out of the receiver, I lose some picture quality but it does function.
