No Signal Scientific Atlanta Cable Box to BenQ Projector

Have purchased a new BenQ MP-620c XVGA proejctor to work with my HD Explorer Sci Atlanta model cable box, which works fine with my Sharp TV (component(3) to component(3)). Decided to try the cable box with my projector. Since the projector does not support HDCP, I hooked up an RCA(3) cable from the cable box that reads (1080i) on front to the D-Sub 15 (VGA) into the back of my proejctor. This projector scans the signal on power-up, I get "no signal". Instructions for the proejctor says this should work, but am I missing something. Someone out there smarter than me? Anyone who solve this, gets a meal on me at the fast food restaurant of their choice. Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: Trying to use rgb input

Cable TV: Connect the LCD TV to the cable with CATV and Digital cable. Preset the cable TV channels into memory with Auto Scan function when using a cable TV system. Make sure you set the INPUT SOURCE properly (TV, VGA, S-Video, etc)

SOURCE: No power to TV. Will not turn on.

I had the same problem... I fixed it by replacing 4 bad capacitors on the Power Module PCB.

Thanks,

SOURCE: I'm trying to set up

try using the number keys on control an manually program numbers in that way, if you select auto tune, it will only try to program any channel it gets signal for, once you type the numbers in that way, it should ask you to save that channel number, in which of course you select yes... try that, also refer to owner manual or mfg website.

Signal drops out, displays "No Signal"


My best guess is the signal to the Cable box. It is not a hardeware problem if you replaced the box it has to be the cable signal. Loose connections are sometimes the problem.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
