Question

hi hax members ,  i am planning on getting my first PS4 Slim and the HDMI problem is a bit of an issue as i will be plugging/unplugging the cable at times.  I was wondering if you guys have tried any of the below ,  i think there will be a clearance issue for some of the adapters but others will be ok.  Maybe there are better methods i'm not sure but i'd like to hear it ,  anyways chat soon

I haven't tried any of those but why exactly will you need to plug/unplug the HDMI cable?

Maybe you could use an HDMI Switch

https://www.monoprice.com/category/adapters,-switches,-&-splitters/audio-video-distribution/audio-video-switches if your TV doesn't have enough HDMI ports that can help and you can choose between one that has a remote (needs a power outlet) if you don't want to get up to switch between devices or one without and you get up to press a button and switch devices. Try searching on Google or Amazon for one and also see if they are compatible with Chromecast or Amazon fire if you have those. Also make sure it's hdcp compliant and at 2.2 so you can watch legit movies with no issues ?

hi guys ,  i buy more than one console and rotate to not over use just one.  Also i play in my bedroom and Vewlix Clone ,  after playing i put the console away on a shelf or switch to another entire one say PS3 or XBOX360.  I have seen on Youtube HDMI ports on PS4's that have bent pins or pushed in pins ,  so i was thinking of using a HDMI Adapter and pretty much permanently leave it in so no wear and tear on the original HDMI port.

 

like i mentioned i will be getting Slims and looking at photos of the HDMI port it differs to the Launch models (CUH-10xx , CUH-11xx , CUH-12xx) ,  have they fixed the issue on Slims ?

 

the ports shown in the below websites look like the one in the Xmods webiste which look to be more reliable
