    Ok, so, im trying to make use of my HDMI ports on my new tv by plugging my 360 and PS3 up to them. Let me try to explain the problem. The tv has 4 hdmi ports. Port 1, everything is fine when i plug the 360 and playstation into it. I get 1080p and all that jazz. When i plug into any other hdmi port, its not HD. The ps3 wont show a display and when i go into the display settings in the 360, it says im using DVI, which im not, since its an HDMI cable. I've used 3 different HDMI cables and its always the same problem.

    Heres the tv in case you're wondering:


    Any ideas?

    First Name:
    have a look at the TV settings for each of those HDMI inputs and see if theres any setting to change

    looking at the user manual - http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Hannspree_ST329MUB_Manual.pdf - i cant see any settings so should expect all 4 HDMI connection to work
    My Panasonic TV has no settings - so i suspect its faulty

    you may want to get intouch with http://global.hannspree.net/ support after the holidays - you will just have to use HDMI 1 and keep swapping in the meantime

    but have a look through the settings see if theres anything

    Agree with what L1TTL3DUD3 said about resetting when you go from SD to HD or vice versa....

    I had a similar problem with our set. I have a JVC 52" HDTV and it has 2 HD ports. I had the Cable HD box set to HDMI port 1 and one day it stopped working. I moved the cable to HDMI port 2 and it worked fine.. Well, we got him a PS3 for Christmas and I got to thinking there might be a problem. I hooked it up to the original bad port and it recognized it and has been working fine ever since.

    I think what may have happened is that the TV lost the HD signal and changed the settings. I know telling you my problems may not be what you wanted, but I would check your TV settings too and go from there. Reset the unit and make sure it is on before you plug in the cable so it recognizes the signal.

    If you are still having probs. let me know and I will do some research on it further and see what we can do.
