  2. Hi Susan,
    Thanks for the visiting. Sorry for the delay responding, I’m not sure how I missed your comment.
    If I understand the question, their equipment should play on any HDTV. However I’ve only tried it on my Samsung HDTV. It really shouldn’t be TV or brand specific since it’s only sending an A/V signal through the HDMI cable.
