The main HDMI Port on my PS3 DECR-1000A is dead. It’s been dead for a year. It was shorted out by an HDMI Splitter. I realized recently that there is a second hidden HDMI port. It’s covered with tape. I removed the tape and tried using it but it doesn’t output any video. Any chance I can enable that port somehow? I watched the H4G Video where they explained how later updates removed support for this HDMI Port, but considering I’m on Rebug 4.84 DECR LE, and considering the port isn’t dead, I am 99.9% sure there is a way to get it working again on newer updates. I just don’t know how as I’m not a developer. I can use Component and VGA just fine but the resolutions suck. It’s worse than Component on Xbox 360. I think it’s a useful thing to look into for future reference, I’m just not skilled enough to do it.
