Question about Sony KDS-R60XBR1 60" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

KDS-R60XBR1 HDMI ORIGINAL: I had the same problem with the HDMI connected to my HD cable box DVR. We called the cable company and he changed the box and the problem remained. He said there was something wrong with my TV. The component (5-wire) jacks on input 5 work fine. A few months later i got the 'green tint" problem and the tech came out to replace the whole optical box. I asked about the HDMI problem and he said that the Sony protocol for HDMI is the problem. It will "talk" to some hardware and not others. He has not found a fix, except to use the other A/V inputs and abandon the HDMI (#7) input. Did you ever find out the solution. I have the same issue. Thx.

Nope.  While a true video-phile will insist that HDMI is better than the 5-wire jack, I can't tell the difference.

I have a mitubishi ws-55313 with a monitor link DVI connection and I have tried to convert that to hdmi for a cable DVR but it doesn't work any ideas?


The monitor link is not a standard DVI connection, it was used to connect a Mitsubishi HD set top box. You can connect your cable DVR using component video cables and get HD that way, up to 1080i but not 1080p

I have run into this issue alot. I believe its because of a older version of HDMI 1.1. Quick solution is to hookup the cable box with component cables(yprpb) to utilize the HD picture still and then do some research to see if Mitsubishi has a firmware update on your particular model.

Not getting HD from the set. I have an HD cable box. I bought an HDMI adapter, but still no HD.


The cable box output needs to be set to HD, 1080I, 720P, 1080P. If you call the cable company they should be able to set the box up to ouput a higher resolution. A way to check your hd would be to play a blu ray disk through a ps3 if you have friends with one or have one yourself. If it plays hd just fine you know for sure it's the cable box.

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.


Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

I have a digital HD package from my cable company and have one HD box I rent and another I just bought from a friend that was originally set up with Comcast, which is a different cable company than I'm...


Each DVR or box that allows you to access anything other than broadcast analog signals (channels 1 thru 100) has to be registered with your cable company. The box has an internal device number similar to the MAC address a wireless PC card might use to connect to a WiFi network. If that number is not registered as a box allowed to be on your account, then it will do nothing at all other than display those numbers you refer to. This is done to prevent you from buying a cable box from somewhere else, instead of renting the one from the cable company. The cable company looses that "rental" money if they allow this. You may be able to contact your cable company to see if they can add that box, and will ask you for numbers on the bottom or back of the box. You may also be required to pay an additional HD charge to have a 2nd HD box in your home, even if you own the box.

The bottom line is to contact the cable company, let them know what you have, and ask what is possible.

Toshiba 57H81 Rear Projection HDTV


Your cable company should be able to supply an HD settop box that has component video output for HD. I have one from Cablevison. It is a Scientific Atlanta (SA) 4200HD.
