Upgrade a PRO510HD to handle HDMI?

Is there a way to upgrade my PRO510HD to handle HDMI input?

  • Anonymous Dec 26, 2008

    I'm on the same quest today after I'm looking at a new video recorder (from Pioneer) that has a HDMI output. I tried the Pioneer US and Canada web sites -- this television isn't supported on either web site. The TV does have a "RGB" input which it says should be used for HD connection but, what is RGB? Maybe there is such a thing as an RGB/HDMI adaptor? I intend to call Pioneer support when their holiday break is over.

Yes, just purchase this HDMI to HD15 (RGB) converter:

    Sorry, this is the correct link.

    The link to the other device connects a HD15 device to an hdmi enabled tv. This unit allows you to connect an HDMI device to an HD15 enabled display.

Chromecast is not working with jvc hd52g886


Don,
The HDMI is best..but you need the standard HDMI cable. BUT this JVC is in the new Noah movie? Seriously, it wont handle Roku. The digital in function is strictly 480 p.
I think you will have to upgrade to a newer tv for this source

DON'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS BUT IS IT HDMI?


G'Day
Although you TV does not have HDMI inputs, you can get an adaptor from here to allow you to plug a HDMI connector into your TV. This will solve the problem for you. Could be a huge cost saving for you, to get the feature without having to upgrade your set. Cheers

Powersurge made my HD setting revert to low def.


Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.

Upgrading my 480 component input to 1080


Get an upconverting DVDP that puts out 1080i on component. They were made several years ago, and today it can't be done without HDMI, which your set is too old for.

Momitsu, Bravo, Lite0n made them, with the Samsung 841 hackable for that purpose. Try to find one used, and be sure to ask whether they upconvert SD - standard - DVDs from 480i->1080i before you buy. Then take that 1080i in via component, which is stellar in its performance and has none of the anomalies that are plaguing HDMI on many brands of CRT units.

Mitsubishi HDMI connection trouble


I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.
