crutchfield was supposed to have the toshiba 62hmx84 in on 10/15. i placed my order around 10/1. anyway, that's been pushed back to 10/30 and i don't even know that that's a definite date. what is this, the video game industry? HL2 anyone? just kidding there.


but really, anyone got any news on this as to why it was pushed back? is the 10/30 date fairly firm? i've got a whole HT setup at home just waiting on a television. my requirements are a 60-62" DLP set, HD2+ or better chip (no HD3), and 2 HDMI ports. any other sets fit these requirements?

Scorp,


Toshiba was working out issues with their TVGuide / CableCard implementation.

Ooops thought you wanted the 94.

I do not believe BB carries the HMX series in their stores.

That's what I'm assuming, as well. Of course, I don't disagree with the orginal poster at all. Though I'm watching MNF on my 62HM84 as I type this. :)

ALL - I went back to BB and you are all right, it was the HM and NOT the HMX. It still shows the best PQ of all the tv's there!

hm = 1 port

hmx = 2 ports


You could buy a hdmi switch to work around the one port issue. Not the cheapest way but if you don't want to wait it should be possible.

Has Toshiba renamed the HM94 to the HMX94?


I see several vendors like Crutchfield advertising the HMX94 (which isn't on Toshiba's site) with two HDMI inputs, rather than the HM94.

the hmX84 and 94 have 2 HDMI inputs. not sure about other changes, but that one i'm sure of. i have 2 devices that will connect to the television via HDMI. that's why i was waiting. connecting a directv HR10-250 and a denon 3910 both via HDMI. i'm also connecting an xbox and gamecube both via component to the unit. can't wait to get it all setup!
