Does HDMI work on SA8300 hd by time warner?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
sorry I think I posted this in the other forum as a mistake..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


so i've had the 8300hd by time warner nyc for about a year now.
When I first got it, I tried hooking it up via hdmi.
I got picture but no sound and came to find out that HDMI was not supported at that time.

I just got a new tv and was wondering if HDMI is now supported by this receiver?
Did they do a firmware upgrade ?
I can't test it out yet, cuz I dont have an hdmi cable around at home and dont want to waste money buying one if it wont work.

If anyone is using hdmi on the 8300hd dvr by time warner..(nyc, I dont know if that makes a difference?) please post your experience.
Thanks a lot guys

You should have no problem using your HDMI equipped TV with the SA8300HD as long as it has current or at least recent firmware.

I believe there is a dedicated TWC NYC thread in this forum and if so i'm sure there would be HDMI discussion there. Do an advanced search on this forum for +SA8300HD +TWC +HDMI and you should find relative posts.

Or, just order an HDMI cable (Item # 2412 i believe) from monoprice dot com for less than $10 shipped and test it out for yourself. I have several of these cables and i'm on TWC in So Calif and have no problem using HDMI on my Plasma and LCD TVs.
