I don't know if anyone else has the problem that when you read a manual, you can understand most of the words, but you don't really know what they mean ....

I have a Sony 40w4500 TV which has a DM Port that the manual says is suitable, (using a DMPort adaptor), for playing audio or video from a portable player.

Does this mean that it will only work with analogue signals, or could it connect with a suitable adaptor via HDMI from, say a Bluray player?

I really need a 4th HDMI connection at the TV and wondered if there was an alternative to buying a HDMI switch, or just changing the leads over when required.

It's not a HDMI port and can't be used as such with any sort of adapter. Forget that idea.

Have a look here for what the adapter is and how it can be used.
