What do you get on the screen, just no signal?

Tim
Customer: replied 5 years ago.

Not even that.

 

The input selection ignores the device if it is only connected with hdmi. I tried downloading firmware from website, no help either.

 

Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 5 years ago.
So you just get a blank screen?

Tim
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Cannot get to the screen. The hdmi-connected device is not offered as a choice.
Expert:  Tim Nolan replied 5 years ago.
You do not get a choice for input 4 or 5?

no, they are X'd out.

Ok I see why...In your menu there is a place that says INPUT SKIP enter into that with the sharp remote and set them to not skip and then you will be able to select them.
