Folks,

I've rjust eceived my pi 400 and have noticed something , are the 2 HDMI ports on the pi 400 identical or is one takes precedence over the second ?

Let me explain , using the supplied hdmi cable plugged into my TV , I only have display via the port furthest from the usb c socket (tested on raspbian and pimiga,) whereas on the hdmi port closer to the power supply, either I have a black screen, or I have the screen full of predominantly purple color.

I can't figure out if this is normal , I can't know if (the 2nd socket only really turns on if the first one is on or if the hdmi port is defective.

Thank you for your answers.

Thank you for your answers , much appreciated , indeed nothing is defective , Pi plugged into a portable screen works directly from any of the ports but with my TV only from one
