The jumper is an undocumented feature. It allows the HDMI board to operate in slot three.
Your configuration, based on your description is:
slot 1: composite/s-video dual-input board
slot 2: HDMI board
slot 3: HDMI board
Is that correct? Technically speaking, that is an unsupported configuration for the display. If you read the documentation, you will see that the HDMI board does not function in slot 3. In fact, neither does the composite board, so no matter which slots you select, tradionally, if you needed to use the above boards together you would be out of luck. However, if you set the jumper on the HDMI board in slot 3, it will work. I've never done this before, I've only read about it on the forum, so I can't help you find where it is. But if you search, or PM Techniwizard, you should be able to get it sorted out.
I did think about the dual inputs but they arent going to be obtainable till the new year ( according to the dealer)and I didnt want the display hanging about the house till then. Tbh I only have two sources to worry about. If I decided to get some other I could buy an HDMI switch.
BTW I got input two working after I changed the output settings on cable box.
Sounds like the cable box was set to 480i - an unsupported resolution for HDMI on this display.
In any case, input number two works because the HDMI board is supported in that slot. You won't get input three working unless you set the jumper as I describe above.
The reason I suggested the new dual HDMI board was so that you could get your two HDMI ports without having to worry about slot three, and also just to let you know they existed in case you were not aware. Although the nice thing about using two boards is that you can do PIP between the two HDMI inputs. That will not be possible using the two inputs on the dual HDMI board.
