Question about Dell 4100MP Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

I have hooked up my satellite receiver to my Dell 4100m using component cable. The picture seems weak and not very sharp. My computer hookup using a vga cable is bright and very crisp. Is there another way to hookup my receiver to get a bright crisp picture?

First, make sure your receiver output is 1080i. This should allow for the best picture with the component cable. If you want it to be the best, switch to the M1 digital input. Note: some 4100 mp might have problems with the M1 input.

good luck

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

Sharp Aquos LC42d64u has blurry picture...


Hi,

Is it slow and blurry? if yes then return it to warranty immediately. The video processing circuits are malfunctioning and the repair cost is prohibitive if you must pay for it on your own.

I hope it is still under warranty. So, do not delay getting it into the Sharp Authorized facility or back to the retailer you purchased it from.


The connection cable you use could have something to do with it, but is should work on all formats. The best for reliability and absence of blocking is just analog composite - but that is also the lowest picture resolution. S-video is okey too, but it is analog as well. Component is the highest grade; going to hdmi is just another way of receiving the signal - I don't think it will effect the error correction problem in any way. My opinion.

Goodluck..

If you are using the hdmi hookup, then you will also need to use either a composite or coaxial cable for the sound. Yes I know this "sounds" crazy, but I had the same problem for both the cable and bluray set ups with this receiver. I thought the hdmi would work for both the picture and sound but for some reason the hdmi only works for the picture with this receiver. I bought mine from Crutchfield and without their tech service I would never have guessed this was the problem. (I never would have purchased this receiver if I knew this was the design problem/issue.) Good quality composite cables for the sound works just fine.

Speaker distortion on SHARP 37" Aquos Hi Def


When you are changing channels you are using the tuner of the sat reeiver. the tv does not know you are changing a channel . It is just receiving a constant signal from the SAT receiver. I would suspect a problem with the receiver. Try another one first .

Sounds is lower than it should be, possible short.


Having read the problem report two or three times, it appears that you're running ~three~ cables from your cable receiver to the home theater system - orange, and red&white.
Often, when you can hear a low-level signal on an input, it's due to 'leakage' from another input, and it's my hunch that the cable receiver is sending audio through the red and white (analogue) connections, which you've plugged to the main sat/cable receiver inputs.
To confirm this, I'd be interested to know if, when you unplug the red and white connectors from the back of the Onkyo, the quiet signal completely disappears.
If that's the case, I would suggest either going into the cable receiver's cofiguration to see if 'digital audio out' is set (if such is possible) or switching the input to 'cable/satellite'...
Hope this brings you closer to the root of the problem!

ONKYO TX-SR606 Single output to TV


Hi there. for your receiver, the only time it can upconvert is when you go out as HDMI. In your current hookup (component out to tv) the signal from your cable (using a composite) will not be able to pass through the component cable. This means you either have to hook up your cable box using a component cable as well or add a composite cable (yellow) from monitor out of the receiver to the tv. Page 22 of the manual will show a diagram of the video signal flow. hope this helps.. ^_^

Installation question


For any electronic component, use the best connection that is available.

Good = standard composite/rca/yellow, red, white
Better = component cables (red, green, blue, white, red
Best = HDMI (find them cheap at www.monoprice.com)

Denon AVR 887 Upconversion With Wii


I have this hookup and it's working almost perfectly:

Wii --component--> Avr-887 --HDMI--> Sharp LCD TV

Sometimes the pictures don't show up during start up, but I figured it was (probably) due to Sharp's HDMI handshake issue, so I turned the TV off and then on, everything works.
