Is it going into protect mode???
If so, check your speaker connections. Make sure there are no loose copper wires hanging out, and that your splices are clean at both the receiver and the speaker.

You probably need to take that issue up with the setup of the unnamed device originating the signal.

1. You will need a VGA or S-video cable and a 1/4 inch stereo plug that will go from the earphone jack to the EZpro then out to a amplified system for the sound.

No compressed audio on hdmi If I send compressed Dolby Digital to the HTR-5990 via HDMI, the indicator shows "PCM" and no audio is heard.

Your receiver is sensing the video source. Try using optical, or coaxial digital audio for an input, this may work.

No sound from Yamaha HTR-5990

You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman

CTX Optoma EzPro 580

Hi, Optoma USA recommend that you set the PC resolution to SVGA (800 x 600) or XGA (1024 x 768). Your HP Pavilion ze 4900 default resolution is S = SXGA (1400 × 1050) or X = XGA (1024 × 768). I would assume that your cable(s) are properly mated/attached from the laptop to the projector. If on pressing TV Now! One-Touch button with a TV icon at the top of your keyboard to switch the display to the TV-Out mode, there is no picture projected, you can try to manually lower the screen resolution of your PC. Try lowering it to the 800 X 600 setting in your Display Properties. Also, you may want to check if the Dual Display Mode is enabled/activated. You can try different resolution setting as long as the projector can handle it. Hopes this works and give you an idea. Should you need more assistance, pls post/comment. Good luck and kind regards.
