Question about Projection Televisions

HDMI input issue with a Samsung 52 650 LCD, Yamaha 663 7.1 reciever HDMI issues, Scientific Atlanta Digital HD Cable Box I recently had to unplug my Samsung Reciever from my Samsung LCD and cable box. When I reconnected and rebooted everything, I was unable to make a connection via the HDMI cable. LCD only gets snow which itermittenly turns on and off, on and off; sometimes there is a picture instead of the snow, but its very red and just truns backto the on and off snow. TV does this as soon as I connect the LCD to the Reciever via HDMI only. When I connect the LCD via HDMI directly to my cable box and hook up the Reciever with analog cables, the system functions ok. I am assuming it is a setting or compatability option? Can someone help ?

    Only fixes are: disconnecting HDMI cable (SDTV signals restored immediately) or connecting HDTV via component jacks (no SD-composite blocking at any time).
    SD output via composite connectors should never be blocked if HDMI device is powered off.

    Use...DVI (Digital Video Interface) connectors, found on some graphics cards, are used for sending video signals digitally to screens with a suitable interface. They bypass the needless and potentially quality-reducing digital-analog conversion process. 
     
    The DVI interface, however, is soon to become obsolete, with the release of the HDMI interface.

Unplug everything from main, wait ten minutes, then plug devices back to power.

    This is not a settings problem, settings get reset if you unplug from power, the problem is probably because you unplugged or plugged back HDMI cable with the devices on.
    This can jam or damage the HDMI signal board (Input plate) on one of the devices.

    Just in case start checking settings, set resolution to same value on both TV and receiver.

    If that did not work, then reset settings by unplugging everything for ten or twenty minutes.

    If still no luck try a different HDMI port on tv, and even a different cable if you have one.

    If all the above did not fix it, then you have probably blown one of the capacitors on the HDMI signal board, and the component must be replaced.

    Nope components are those tiny things mounted on circuit boards inside electronic devices, like ICs, resistors, diodes , capaciors etc.

    My suggestion is quite simple:

    Do a general hard reset first, by unplugging both TV, DVD and receiver , waiting ten minutes and connecting everything back. This will drain power and reset devices.

    After startup, check display settings on both TV and cable receiver, set everything to 720 Dpi to start, this setting is supported by both devices.

    If still no luck , try a different HDMI input on TV.

    If still no joy, there is an internal fault either on TV or receiver, both must be tested with different devices using HDMI connections, in that case it is better calling the number listed on the owner manual.

DVI / HDMI problem


This problem is almost certainly on the 8300HD side of your setup. URL for the 8300HD, just in case you need it: --> http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/userguidepdfs/4013171.pdf Dittos for the TV, just in case: --> http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDownDetail.do?group=televisions&type=televisions&subtype=dlptv&model_nm=HCN4226W&mType=UM&dType=D&vType=L&cttID=37697 You're using the HDMI-to-DVI cable to connect, and I see that the manual warns on the bottom of page 11 that some DVI connected HDTVs are incompatible to the signals that are output by the HDMI interface. First thing to try - when you change the settings in the 8300HD, in the "General Settings > Audio", see if you have this problem with all of the possible selections, or if it's only with the "Dolby Digital" setting. Since the HDMI also contains the audio signal, it may be interfering with the DVI recognition in the TV. OR - See if you still have this problem when turning the TV on first, then the 8300HD. Or vice-versa. The power-on order of the two devices may make a difference. OR - With the TV on and with the 8300HD off, press the GUIDE and INFO buttons at the same time. Using the on-screen menu, verify that it is set to HD mode. Press the POWER button on the 8300HD when finished. OR - Replace the HDMI-to-DVI cable with a PrPbY/V component cable, available at Radio Shack, Best Buy and other electronics stores. One of these options should solve the problem. If not, you'll have to start sending e-mails to Sci-Atl and Samsung. Hope this helps! ;)

The only time I have had issues like this was because of the Component Cables not being in the right position (the Red and Blue connections switched), or a bad Component Cable where the Blue Connection is not receiving a signal. Swap out the cable to be sure and double check that it is properly installed. Green to Green, Red to Red , Blue to Blue.
Hope this helps,

The first step you sohuld take, in my opinion, is to have the cable company come out and test your line levels to make sure there isn't a lossy connection somewhere.  
You might also try rebooting your cable box by turning it off, unplugging it for a minute, then plugging it back in.  I have this issue with the same box and I believe the problem may be that the live recording for pausing and rewinding gets bogged down after a certain period of time.  I've had four of these boxes and had this issue with every one of them.  They seem to have a problem when the cable company pushes an update sometimes that corrupts the firmware and causes problems (my fourth box just failed tonight, that makes four failures in about eight months).

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
