A given Hamiltonian matrix H with real spectrum is assumed tridiagonal and non-Hermitian. Its possible Hermitizations via an amended, ad hoc inner-product metric are studied. Under certain reasonable assumptions, all of these metrics are shown obtainable as recurrent solutions of the hidden Hermiticity constraint called Dieudonne equation. In this framework even the two-parametric Jacobi-polynomial real- and asymmetric-matrix N-site lattice Hamiltonian is found tractable non-numerically at all N.
