No image at all... help

04-10-2008, 10:10 AM

I can not for the life of me get my HD cable box, up converting DVD player & projector to work with each other


Scientific Atlanta 8300HDC (cable box)
Pioneer DV-400V (up converting dvd player)
Mitsubishi XD-50U (DLP projector) w/ DVI input (have DVI - HDMI cable)

I am using all equipment via s-vhs cable; If i try to switch over to the hdmi cables the following happens;

dvd + projector = get an image for about 2 seconds, and it goes back to black. the orange (HDMI) light on the front of dvd player blinks. same happens if I hook up the dvd player to my lcd monitor via hdmi.

cable box + projector = nada. several reboots + tried another box, no signal what so ever.

I also have a Toshiba SD-6000 up converting dvd player. I hooked this up via HDMI to my projector as well as lcd monitor; works fine. I ruled out the cables (all tested; working).

I am waiting for a "DVI to Component adapter" to arrive in the mail, hoping this will allow me to use the HD DVR & projector.

What am I doing wrong?
