    Question Can be Hdmi hot plugged?

    Hello to everyone, I wondered if can be dangerous for the hardware (tv and pc/bluray/console) doing the hot plugging in case of hdmi connection.

    In other words is it possible creating damages just connecting or disconnecting the hdmi port when the devices are on or in stand-by mode?

    Wikipedia says that hdmi standard has been designed originally for the hot plugging procedure (exactly like the usb port), but some forums advise agaist doing this saying that the port can get burned because of the static electricity.

    Could someone solve this doubt, please?

    P.s.: sorry for the english, I'm italian .

    Hi Tails70,

    Welcome to the TV forum and thank you for your enquiry.

    I would advise that you put the TV in standby mode before removing and adding any connections, such as HDMI cables. This is to minimise the chance of any damage to the TV set.

    Best regards,
    Ina
