Question about Mitsubishi WS-55315 55" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

What is the dvi monitor/link used for?

I can't seem to get any use out of the dvi/monitor link input. I have tried to use a dvi/hdmi cable to connect both my cable box and my laptop. Both have the same result which is a blank screen. My laptop has a vga port, expansion port 3, and a hdmi port if this helps. I'm also using windows vista. If any one has any info on what i can connect to dvi/monitor link input? What might be compatible with it? Or, had any luck trying to use it. Please let me know.

    I am trying to use this input as a DVI input as described in my owners manual (pg 12 & pg 25). With a $100 Monster DVI cable(Fry's 10/2004) that is connected from the DVI output of my digital cable box to the M-Link / DVI-HD input on TV, I get nothing. Furthermore, I cannot seem to find any direction in the owners manual that describes how to enable this input IF that has to be performed. My model number is WS-65713. I'll be calling Mitsubishi Consumer Relations tomorrow (1/6/2009).

    Have you tried to connect a dvd with hdmi output to the dvi input? If you still have no picture I would suspect the dvi circuit in the set. It should be able to handle any 408p signal as well as 1080i, however I believe it will not sync to 1080p.

SOURCE: HDMI compatible?

yes the DVD player will work on it thru HDMI to DVI connector but however the audio is not carried on DVI so you will have to have a seperate audio cables. also the 1080p signal is not supported by this set 1080i only.

SOURCE: No sound with HDMI to DVI connection

HDMI are only for video, you would need separate audio cables.

SOURCE: Inputing HDMI signal to a WS-55313 55 via an HDMI-DVI cable

HDMI standard is a bear, especially "Older" versions. It should be possible to input HDMI to a DVI, either DVI-I or DVI-D, input, there are however DVI analogue too, in fact we have, 3 type of them, they are, DVI-I, DVI-A & DVI-D.... Also some HDMI do not send the Audio over it, as it should, so all in all it can be a pickle. So you MUST get a converter that works with your sort of DVI. You would have to select that DVI, input, which may be under Auxillary, or External or the like, try scrolling through your AV inputs, see if you "Find" it. if so, the set will "Read" the signal and display it automatically. The Audio, however will have to be done via the AV sockets, the Red & White stereo IN, from the DVD etc. If you have any other inputs such as Component Video, Green, Red, Blue, then this is the best way... The Audio, again must be routed to the AV, the Red & White Jacks. So ensure you have those outputs on your new DVD.
I have included a couple of links below about DVI & HDMI for your convenience. http://www.datapro.net/techinfo/dvi_info.html http://www.hdmi.org/learningcenter/faq.aspx

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Mitsubishi

I have a 2005 rear projection mitsubishi medallion hd tv.... for some reason the hd channels do not look as HD as they used to... I went to my cable company and got a new cable box... but it is still not a crisp as it used to be. Could it be the settings on the cable box, settings on the tv or could something have gone bad in the tv?

How should I connect a Sony Wega KF-50WE620 to an XBox360 ?


Since the TV accepts HD signals only via DVI and component inputs, the only logical way is to use the "Xbox 360 Component HD AV Cable" as show in the link below:

How to hook up your Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 to TV

The TV will not accept a VGA input. A cable converting HDMI to DVI would also require that you break out the L + R audio channels, too. The one I mentioned above does this all for you with no degradation in video signals.

I have a mitubishi ws-55313 with a monitor link DVI connection and I have tried to convert that to hdmi for a cable DVR but it doesn't work any ideas?


The monitor link is not a standard DVI connection, it was used to connect a Mitsubishi HD set top box. You can connect your cable DVR using component video cables and get HD that way, up to 1080i but not 1080p

WHAT CABLE DO I NEED TO CONNECT HDMI TO MONITOR LINK DVI


I do not think the model listed here has either a HDMI or a DVI---if trying to connect a HD signal to the set it must be connected via the DTV input which is component but HD.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Medallion TV. The only input for HD is DTV (no DVI or HDMI inputs). Is there a converter box from HDMI to DTV that will allow for 1080i resolution?


From looking at the back panel of the TV, the DTV input can be configured as a component video. The M-Link/DVI-HD port is also a DVI with HDCP port and maximum signal handled is 1080i. The M-Link should work with an HDMI to DVI cable or adapter. For this to work, the source must not be a computer or another device using the default computer video output (computers give RGB output). The DTV port would need an HDMI to Component video converter. See this page for some examples: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdtocoad.html . The first one in the list (for Netflix and Boxee among others) will give 1080i out if the source is set correctly.

Most DVI-HDMI cables are single link. I've seen some examples where DVI-I (single link) and DVI-D (dual link) cables are not interchangeable. If you have video problems, check your cable. An HDMI to DVI adapters will let you run an HDMI cable up to the TV and then converter at the TV as a separate connection.

I hope this helps.

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.

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.


okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

DVI/HDMI Cable lost my pic and sound


Try disconnecting the hdmI cable and the dvr box.
Connect the cable directly to the cable input.
Sometimes the dvr boxes will cause this problem
