Well I finally got around to attempt figuring out why my second HDMI blade wasnt working. I swapped cables and got no picture, Swapped boards and no luck either. So with a HDMI blade in slot one I have no issue. Putting on in slot 2 simply does not seem to work. So whats my last option... Could the slot itself be defective? or could it simply mean this plasma cannot accept more than one HDMI at at time. Or lastly its some sort of mystery setting buried that I am not seeing. The set up doesnt allow me to choose the type of slot so I am running out of ideas.
None of this would an issue if the stupid SA 8300hd dvr was HDMI 1.1 complient. I wanted to run all of it out of my new Pio Elite 74 receiver which has 2 HDMI in and one HDMI out but is 1.1
