RCA or Component cables?
 
I just recently upgraded to the Hopper 3 plus 3 Joeys. On my older 1080i Toshiba TV (which has no HDMI input) I used a standard RCA (red, white, yellow) cable which only gives me 480. I wanted to know if I could substitute a component cable (red, blue, green) and get 1080i?
Thanks

Yes. With a component cable + audio cable (red white) you would be all set for 1080i.

Thank you. Unfortunately, the only two options are the RCA jack or the HDMI. There is a digital sound on the Joey but none on the TV.

I looked up the connections and you don't have any component jacks on the joey. If you want to go to 1080i, you will need one of these: HDMI to component + audio converter

There are converters that convert HDMI to component + stereo audio.

Wal-Mart lists one for less than $30, but be careful that it's HDMI TO VGA/YPBPR not the other way.

Just run the HDMI from the satellite receiver to HDMI port #3 on the OnkyoTX-NR708 AV Receiver, then the component outputs on the AV receiver to the TV, if your AV receiver is setup correctly this should work.

See page 19 of this PDF manual for your AV receiver.

The video flow chart on page 22 seems to indicate that HDMI can receive any of the other inputs for output, but composite only receives output from the composite input.

I don't think he has the receiver attached to the older TV he is asking about.

At the prices of some of the HDTV's right now it may be time to get a new one for that location.

I saw a 48" 1080i Samsung for under 200 at a big outlet store yesterday.

thats correct. This tv is in a spare bedroom that is rarely occupied. My sound system is elsewhere. I was pretty sure that you couldn’t substitute component cables for RCA cables. ( plus there’s no where to put them on a wireless Joey. ) no big deal, I’ll more than likely have Dish turn it off until I may need it. I had to purchase the Joey in order to do this as no leased equipment can be turned on & off on an as needed basis according to the rep I spoke with. Thanks for the input!

I wondered why my video looked strange in places! So what's the best widely known way for the Xbox to display on an HD TV? My Xbox looks better than it ever did in the past but I can still see bleeding, over saturated colors and some ghosting like you said.

yes, you are right.
