Use of the HDMI port

I am trying to monitor my WD ReadyView on my TV. When connecting the ReadyView to my TV using the HDMI port, I get the camera monitor screens with an overlay of instructions to install the app. Has anyone made this work or know the purpose of the HDMI port?

You can close this “Wizard” {click Exit} then see your camera live feed(s). You can right-click and change the number of feeds to show (e.g. 4).

With use of the HDMI output is it possible for unit to display on any HDMI capable device or only 4k equipment?

Yes just quit it and the pictures of the cameras should come up. Worked for me.

It works on my various monitors and TVs. What device are you planning to connect?

Attempted to connect to a Sharp brand TV with HDMI input. TV recognizes the connections but no video is displayed. The DVR does provide output on the HDMI out as confirmed with Samsung PC monitor
