Nec MT1060 blue screen when connected to a Hdmi source thru dvi port.Dvi setting to match Hdmi resolution.tried different cables and dvi to Hdmi adapters....any ideas..??

Hi Genaro,

Sounds like an issue with the HDMI HDCP content protection. I do not think it will be possible to connect using a DVI to HDMI cable.

Which cords and/or plugs should I use inorder to connect a projector to a computer

if your desktop doesn't have a standard vga socket then you can get a dvi adapter that fits onto the end of a vga lead. you will still need a seperate cable for audio as a dvi connection only does video.

Does this tv support HDCP

The specs do not list HDCP compatibility on the HDMI/DVI port. Thus it probably doesn't support the feature.

I wish that I had better news.

Just trying to connect the HDMI using a cox cable box. Cannot find the connection on the tv.... help

This TV doesn't have an HDMI port. You can use a DVI to HDMI adapter or the component video. (I assume the Cox cable has component video out.) You will need to connect an audio cable as well. There are 2 DVI-HDCP ports.

I wish that I could be of more help.

You are indeed correct, you answered your own question. You are looking at the HDCP issue. TV Firmware has little to do with that issue because no updates would rectify the "problem" (which is actually a lack of feature). The issue is caused by the hardware as you would need a chip that is not present on this HDTV.

Your Olevia TV is simply not HDCP compliant, believe me, I own the very same model. ;) It's an older TV produced when HDCP was starting to appear on the market for the first HDMI-equipped HDTVs, therefore the only purpose for that DVI port is the same one of the VGA port, i.e. to double the use of the TV as a desktop monitor, or allow to attach a computer used as multimedia center. You still need to use separate ports for audio signals since DVI here is not carrying both video and audio. Even if you use an DVI to HDMI adapter the result would be the same. Therefore if you need to used the Olevia with your HT system I would advise upgrading to a newer HDCP compliant model and maybe use this one for something else that would not require HDCP compliance.

The blues screen is a "normal" behavior for all HDCP non-compliant TV sets. We only have the greed and fear of the MPAA and "friends" to thank for crippling our electronics. It's all due to that and to their ineptitude and lack of interest to find a better solution to content piracy. Obviously it's also due to the fact that they can pretty much write whatever rule they like since they and are completely unaccountable. Therefore after buying a $1400 HDTV, we (you and I both plus all the other owners of similar HDTVs) are no longer allowed to use our electronics because we would certainly do so only to steal from all the poor in Hollywood Beverly Hills and other Slums like those across the globe! ;P That is why any TV that is not HDCP compliant will not receive any signal other than the blue screen of "I assume you are trying to steal copyrighted material" because you see... we all are thieves before being customers as they like to remind us through the warning they shove dow our ocular nerves as we are forced (can't skip or ffwd like the old VHS tapes!) to watch each time we play a movie that we have lawfully rented, purchased, or streaming through a dedicated service.

Since consumers don't (and never will) have the power to make a decision in similar matters and all those ""AA" associations who have an absolute power (which we already know it corrupts absolutely ;P), will definitely make sure consumers never get any leverage so that those "AAs" will never be forced into adopting a fair approach for those of us who are not thieves of protected material. If consumers can't protest then the "AAs" and their supporters can exercise all the carelessness they need and still get away with impunity. Sure, they may be able to find a more viable solution, but… why bother?

So in conclusion, quoting a famous show: "there is nothing wrong with your television. Do not attempt to adjust the picture..."they control" all that you see and hear… ;D

Blue-ray Player HDMI jack to existing TV DVI-HDTV connector

Unless your TV is HDCP compliant (sorry, don't have to research this for you), you may not be able to watch Blu-Ray movies from your Blue-Ray player in 1080p. So first find out if your TV can do HDCP via the DVI port (i doubt it). If it can, you can get an HDMI-to-DVI adapter (you can find them real cheap off

Dell w3000 & PS3

This may not be DVI issue.
I connected DVD player HDMI ----> DVI ( Dell W3000) LCD TV.
Later I found that Dell TV version of DVI does not support HDCP protocol ( High Definition Content Protection protocol). So I could not play HDMI to DVI movies from my DVD player instead I use Y Pb Pr -- this works ok.

Hope this helps... I am not use PS3 enforces HDCP - I assume Sony linked with Sony Pictures would enforce HDCP on HDMI cable.

DVI will not recognise now ?

Presumably, you're going directly from DVI port on computer to DVI port on Z2?. Here is a Q&A list based on all the possible sceanrios for this hook-up...

Q1: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with unencrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A1: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(PC Digital)' on Z2.

Q2: Is it DVI-D or DVI-I (with HDCP-encrypted DIGITAL output from graphics card)?
A2: Choose 'Input 2', then 'RGB(AV HDCP)' on Z2.

Q3: Is it DVI-I or DVI-A (with ANALOGUE output from graphics card)?
A3: Choose 'Input 2', then select 'RGB(Analog)' on Z2.

After making sure the correct 'Input 2' is chosen to match the signal coming from the card's DVI port, make sure your card is outputting a suitable screen resolution that the PLV-Z2 can display correctly, e.g... 1280x720 (native, and preferable!); 640x480; 800x600; 1024x768 (choose this if you don't have 1280x720); 1280x1024, etc. Also, if you have multiple refresh rates availble for the resolutions, choose 60Hz.

You should end up with an image.
