Question about Philips 60PW9363 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Philips 60 Hi, thanks for your help. I found a cable at Radio Shack with DVI on one end and HDMI connection on the other end. The 12ft. cable was $50. I believe the 50ft. was $100. I haven't bought it yet. How much difference do you think the picture will be if I use that instead of an S-Video cable?

There will be a big difference in video quality between HDMI and S-Video. If you happen to have a DVD player that uses HDMI you can upconvert your movies to 1080i if your DVD player allows it. The only problem that you might run into is your audio. HDMI has audio built into the cable and DVI does not, with the HDMI to DVI cable you are going to have to find an alternate source for your audio to travel through. If you are looking for video quality get the HDMI to DVI cable.

DVI / HDMI problem


This problem is almost certainly on the 8300HD side of your setup. URL for the 8300HD, just in case you need it: --> http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/userguidepdfs/4013171.pdf Dittos for the TV, just in case: --> http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDownDetail.do?group=televisions&type=televisions&subtype=dlptv&model_nm=HCN4226W&mType=UM&dType=D&vType=L&cttID=37697 You're using the HDMI-to-DVI cable to connect, and I see that the manual warns on the bottom of page 11 that some DVI connected HDTVs are incompatible to the signals that are output by the HDMI interface. First thing to try - when you change the settings in the 8300HD, in the "General Settings > Audio", see if you have this problem with all of the possible selections, or if it's only with the "Dolby Digital" setting. Since the HDMI also contains the audio signal, it may be interfering with the DVI recognition in the TV. OR - See if you still have this problem when turning the TV on first, then the 8300HD. Or vice-versa. The power-on order of the two devices may make a difference. OR - With the TV on and with the 8300HD off, press the GUIDE and INFO buttons at the same time. Using the on-screen menu, verify that it is set to HD mode. Press the POWER button on the 8300HD when finished. OR - Replace the HDMI-to-DVI cable with a PrPbY/V component cable, available at Radio Shack, Best Buy and other electronics stores. One of these options should solve the problem. If not, you'll have to start sending e-mails to Sci-Atl and Samsung. Hope this helps! ;)

Hdmi cable connection


Your model has a DVI input which is at the top of component 1 section on the rear panel which is for HD input or you can use the RCA plug ins for HD inputs on the component 1 section as well. Either will allo HD to be hooked to your set.

Get an HDMI to DVI adaptor and use a generic HDMI cable.

How can i watch movies from computer to my tv


You probably need to get a composite video output card for your computer. Actually, I've seen many cards that have both a composite video output AND a DVI output port on 1 card. The DVI output will give you a noticeably sharper picture than composite video, but you need to check if your TV has a DVI or HDMI input. (If it was manufactured after 2000, it probably does.) If you TV was manufactured after 2006, it probably has 1 or more HDMI inputs instead of DVI. You can buy a DVI to HDMI converter cable. That takes care of the picture; to get sound to the TV, you will need to connect separate sound cables to your TV. Your computer needs to have a line-level output jack on it's sound card, and you will need to get an adapter cable (from Radio Shack) to convert the stereo mini-plug to 2 RCA type plugs to plug into your TV. And that should do it!

I just hooked up a Time Warner Cable 4250HD Box via HDMI to DVI cable to a 50 inch Sony Grand Wega. The problem is on some channels the bottom of the screen (like a news crawl) gets cut off. This happens...


You need to make sure that the settings on your TV for the DVI connection are set properly. It sounds as if it is set to stretch or zoom. The reason the HD channels look great is that they dont zoom because the resolution fills up the entire screen without stretching.

I know you want to use your HDMI cables, but since you are going HDMI to DVI you are removing the benefit of the single cable since you still have to use audio cables. You are not going to get any appreciable difference between the setup yo uare using and the component (red, green, blue) cable.

If I have helped you, please rate me as such. It allows me to help others. Thank you.
