I heard that you need two HDMI ports on your TV to hook up the Xbox One, is this true? I ask this because my TV only has one HDMI port.

Yup, that's why it's called the Xbox Two.

C'mon, man. When has ANYTHING ever needed two HDMI cables to plug into a TV?

I don't know, I'm not an expert at these things. But I'm glad that's not true.

Yes, you need two HDMI ports to hook up your Nintendo Wii U and Playstation 4.

:D

Seriously, as long as you have one HDMI you are fine. People are confused about how the cable box connects with the Xbox One.

Haha no. It might have the capability to support tvs, but it only needs one.

You actually need 3. 2 to plug into the the tv. And the 3rd to jam into the eye socket of whoever you heard this from...

there is an HDMI "in" port in which you would normally go from your cable box to your TV, but it will go into your xb1...you then need a second HDMI CABLE to go FROM your XB1 to the TV

Don't mind the morons, I can see how this could get confusing...it's new

Not sure if you're trolling - but just in case you aren't:

There is no device that needs two HDMI cables to output. A single HDMI will output a signal. What the Xbox One has is an HDMI IN and an HDMI OUT. The HDMI OUT is for displaying the Xbox One on a TV. The HDMI IN is so that the Xbox One can act as a sort of receiver. You can hook up another HDMI device to the Xbox One via the HDMI IN and use a single HDMI cable to output a signal for both devices.
Great job!
