I have operated the unit with the same satellite, dvd, and projector for years with no problems. Projector image is fine without input from the reciever. Now the image is wavy and distorted from DVD and Satellite. What is causing this?

Does the satellite receiver power up? Usually they go through a test sequence when trying to reconnect, i.e., there is some picture output to the TV even when a satellite is unavailable. Did the input on the TV get changed? Try cycling through all the inputs. Do you have any other video devices, like a BlueRay or DVD player? Do they work? Divide and conquer, figure out what does work, then look deeper into what does not.
Since the comb filter is discontinued is will be best to bypass it by using the S-video input especially if you are on satellite receiver or use a composite to S-video adapter if you don't have dish. You might get the adapter at Radio Shack or shop online at Circuit City or Best Buy
A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.
I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.
Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.
You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.
If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...
And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.
Most tv setups require that you change the input source to gain the ability to watch the proper peripheral e.g. if satellite is connected on video one and the dvd is connected to the tv on another input such as video 2.
If the satellite runs into the dvd unit and from there the dvd is connected to tv you may have to power off or on the dvd player to resolve conflict.
Another problem may be the resolution setting if your tv is Hi Def. Set the tv and receiver to the resolution e.g. 1080i.
You can also changed the way the satellite is connected to the tv possibly if you have other inputs.
Check the channel also, if the unit is connected with coax it would more than likely need to be on ch 3 or 4 if you are at the satellite receiver box location. If you are at a stand alone tv off of a dual tuner you may need to search the channels for the right source both air(analog) and cable(digital).
Hope this helps you out. If I can be of more assistance let me know.
Audio: There should be a set of audio outputs on your TV. Connect those to the AUX inputs of your receiver. When you turn on your receiver, set it to AUX. Set your TV volume to approx 1/3 and adjust the volume on your receiver. There's probably a menu section on the TV to turn off your TV speakers so the sound will only come from your receiver.
DVD/VCR (I'll call it DVD from this point forward): Connect the video (yellow) output from the DVD to the "video input" on the back of the TV. Connect the audio out on the DVD player (red) to the red audio input on the back of the TV, then do the same with the other audio (white). When you want to use your DVD player, you'll select "input 1" as the input on the TV.
Cable: Your cable box probably has numerous output types. I have the cable box hooked up to both the DVD player AND to the TV; one output type going to the DVD player and another output type going to the TV. I like to use the HDMI output from the cable box to the TV, and the composite video from the cable box to the DVD.
Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
If replacing the lamp did not fix the problem, I would suggest to check the cables that bring the video from a computer or any other device that you are connecting to the projector.
Also try to hook up a DVD player using the video output from the DVD to the video input on your projector.
