IQ2 HDMI Output not Working.

I have an IQ2 box. The HDMI output is no longer working. I have swapped the HDMI cable into a Blu Ray Player and it works fine proving the cable is not faulty. Component output is working but only outputs 576i not 1080i. Would prefer watching via HDMI as the picture is better.If the set top box proves to be faulty, could it be replaced with an IQ4 at no extra cost?

Re: IQ2 HDMI Output not Working.

I don't think you will get IQ4 for free... When my regional failed, I got another regional... Yes, that was ages ago and I wonder what would happen now when they do not offer regional anymore, but I would not hold my breath for that... I would not be surprised if they had a secret stash of old regional receivers...

When a unit fails, the replacement is usually the closest comparable model.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.
