Re: DVI imput not working

You know, I have to unplug the HDMI cable from my DVD player and then plug it back in after both TV and DVD player are turned on. Really strange. But that seems to do the trick. Let me know if that helps you at all.

HDMI and DVI use the same encoding scheme for video purposes- the only difference is HDMI can carry audio signals and therefore have different connectors- so it is not like the lack of a picture signal is because you are using two different cables (HDMI and DVI). In theory the DVI to HDMI adapter should work.
Is there a possibility that the adapter is defective? Any bent or missing pins?
How long are the cables? If they are of poor quality, a digital signal can be lost at 20 feet. Again, in theory.
The only other thing I can thing of, off the top of my head is to ask, did you change the input selection on your t.v.'s display screen to go from the input source that you get your t.v stations from... to the input source of the Play Station?

I have a Playstation 3/blu ray player and I don't know how to get hi def video on a samsung hln467w

Your TV only has a DVI input, not an HDMI which PS3 has as an output. You can buy a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect the HDMI out of the PS3 to the DVI input of the TV. To get the true HighDef video you need a HDMI input on the TV to enjoy the full capacity of the Blu ray capabilities of the PS3. DVI came out before the HDMI standard and your picture will look good but not like HDMI. I have the same problem with my samsung 65 inch. I Bought the wrong technology. I hope this helps and good luck!

You are infact doing everything correct. More to the point and sad to say, it is the HDCP which is causing your problem. There are long drawn out explanations regarding upscaling and resolutions regarding your TV set, but to be brief, there is no proof that connecting via HDMI or DVI will actually produce any better a picture on your set than component cables. I have a sort of similar issue with my samsung 65 rear projection Tv and my PS3. The ps3 has HDMI out and my TV had DVI in, but it actually has a better picture without using those connections. I tired with an adapter for HDMI to DVI and it did work, but nothing of great quality that I had expected. With the right component cables and the correct set up on your TV, your picture should still look very sharp. I hope this helps and good luck.

Hook up a lg blueray player to mitsubishi medallion 65"

Yes, there is an adapter which will take the hdmi output of the blue-ray and convert it to dvi. You will also need to connect the blue-ray audio out (rca jacks) since the hdmi is both audio and video (digital) and the dvi is video only.

No picture

The model you mentioned does not have an HDMI input. Are you using a convertor from HDMI to DVI? If so there are several types of DVI cables/ inputs make sure you use the right one.

Hdmi and dvi

No sir, there is not such switch in menu to change input from S video to HDMI or something. Here is one suggestion, Use 3 RCA pins cable (Audio L/R & Video) to connect both unit and check/ remember TV input and same should be selected in TV menu.
