Re: HdMi To Hd Tv

Have you tried all the display modes in hdmi settings?  mine has had two upgrades with no problems. I recently debricked both of mine too.

Re: HdMi To Hd Tv

Thanks for the reply. Yes I tried all the different settings. Some were completely blank, some worked but with coloured lines or with zapping and crackling on the video and audio.

 

I was able to do this without any issues prior to the last update, on both my wife's and my PB. The common denominator between the two are the recent software updates and the fact that we are using the same HDMI cable. The cable always worked before, but I haven't tried another one to see if that's the issue. Quite possibly I just need to replace the cable.

As there's nearly 2 million playbooks that do work with the latest update on hdmi I would suspect the cable.

Re: HdMi To Hd Tv

You guys are great, thanks for your feedback.

 

I bought a new cable and tried it last night. It works ... sort of. It's very finicky, I have to have it seated just right in the port on the PB, otherwise it disconnects. I didn't try my other PB, but at least this tells me it's not a software issue. It's either the port, or the cable end, or both.

Re: HdMi To Hd Tv

I have used mine twice and it will cut out if the cable is touched. Both these sockets are made of some sort of cheese.

Re: HdMi To Hd Tv

Well I spoke with a friend who works at BbB and he tells me the driver is defective, it works with some tvs and not with others, depends on the tv and what make and how new, it works with my 8 yr old Panasonic but not with my new Sony zo its nog the cable,   it's the driver. If not it would not work on one tv and not the new one. Problems with Sony And Sharp, some new Panasonic, they changed the driver but it's not able to work properly and they need an update but there not sure if they will  discontinue the playbook and won't spend the money to fix this . If BB 10 comes to the Playbooks or if not, they don't work with the new phones either, my Z10 nix.
