Customer Question

I have a Hitachi PM25801 Ultravision. I want to connect a blu-ray but I cannot find an HDMI connection anywhere on the monitor or on the receiver. Is it too old for such a connection?
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Hitachi is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Other than "ultra vision digital" I cannot find any identifying numbers other than "PM25801" on one end of the receiver's rear. It could be close to ten years old.
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: I'll bring up the TV menu. What am I looking for?
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: I'm not sure what you are talking about. I want to try to connect a blu-ray player to the tv, but I cannot find any HDMI jacks.
JA: Anything else you want the tv expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: I'm afraid the set is pre-HDMI,but I'm unsure. That's it.
