I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

Hello, I’d like to help you with this.

The first problem is that your Hitachi TV doesn’t come equipped to do what you want it to do. Both Sony and Panasonic newer models do, but no other brands that I’m aware of.

This means that you’ll need to buy an additional piece of equipment. If you haven’t solved the problem yet, and would like my advice, please let me know and I can find out what you need to do later today.
