    Hello -

    I'm trying to connect my Acer A500 to my Toshiba 26CV100U TV via HDMI.

    When I plug the cable in on both ends and configure the TV to use the HDMI I port (has 2), I get an error message message, no source data, generally, except one fleeting moment when I actually got the tablet screen image showing on the TV. I don't know what's up. I have the same problem on the HDMI II port, so its not that.

    Does anyone have any pointers for me? I did call the Toshiba help line and they said that only PC's could hook up to the TV, but somehow I am doubting that. But hey, I've never done this before...

    All thoughts are appreciated! :) :confused: :)

    Had the same problem with an Acer to an Insignia TV. It was the cable. It was the end that went into the TV. The port was sloppy.

    Thanks to All for your replies - the cable was definitely the problem - now that the new one has arrived the Tablet is driving the TV w/o any problems.
