Question about Sharp LC-45GD7U 45 in. HDTV LCD
Input 4 of this TV is HDMI and works fine with HDCP compliant devices I attach to it. Input 5 is DVI and is supposed to be HDCP compliant yet I get no picture when attaching devices to it. I have proven the devices and cables are good. When I look at the Sharp set up menus, Input 4 has an HDCP config option but Input 5 does not. Am I missing something here? Is the Sharp manual wrong about Input 5 being hdcp compliant?
DVI input only supports 720p, so if you have your settings at 1080i or 1080p in your cable box or dvd player, it won't show a picture.

SOURCE: Non-HDCP Compliant Error
The HDMI cable was causing "Display connected non-HDCP compliant" error message to appear.
When I reconnected my DVD to TV using regular cable with 3 color connectors(i don't know what is the proper name for that cable) that error message no longer appears on my screen and I was able to watch my movie normally.

Your PS3 set itself above the max resolution your LC-C3237U. Most likely the PS3 is doing 1080P, but the highest the Sharp can do is 1080i. So do this:
1. Connect PS3 to TV (you can use the current cable or analog cable)
2. Turn on TV and set input to port PS3 is on.
3. Make sure PS3 is connected via correct cable.
4. Power on PS3 via power button and HOLD IT for 5 seconds (release after the second beep). It should automatically configure your PS3 to the TV's native resolution for all settings.

The HDMI input on your TV receives digital audio
and uncompressed digital video and audio from an

This input is designed to accept HDCP program
material in digital form from EIA/CEA-861/861B-
compliant consumer electronic devices (such as a settop
box or DVD player with HDMI or DVI output).
The HDMI input is designed for best performance
with 1080i high-definition video signals, but will also
accept and display 480i, 480p, and 720p signals.
To connect an HDMI device, you will need:
• one HDMI cable (type A connector)
For proper operation, it is recommended that you use
a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter
difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable
(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
