DVI-HDMI not working with Sanyo Z2

I have bought a DVI-HDMI cable and connected by Z2 to my DVD player with it. On the DVD I select "HD" as output and have no other options regarding resolution, frequence or other stuff.

On the projector I have tried all the different options under Input 2 but I can't get a picture. Please Help...

Well, I found these cables that says that they have HDCP. I just ordered them to see if they will solve the issue of old projectors not having hdcp.

I've got 2 of these projectors myself, and you've discovered their biggest downfall. They aren't fully compatible with HDCP, and I have never gotten a regular DVD player to work with one reliably using DVI/HDMI. Some of them will occasionally display a picture for a few moments, others do nothing. I've only discovered 2 ways around this. 1 is to use a computer with a DVI or HDMI output to play the DVD. (This might still be a problem with Win7 or Vista, but it works perfectly with earlier versions.) The other is a Playstation 3 which seems to play DVDs and BlueRays perfectly with this projector. There is a noticeable improvement in the picture using either of these methods. It will accept 720p or 1080i, but not 1080p signals, and as a general rule, I think 720p looks better on it.

HD comes as 720p and 1080p - the Sanyo will cope with 720 but not 1080 full HD - check the specs in the manual. You should have a DVD output setting for screen mode.

HOW DO I PLAY A DVD USING Hitachi Flat Panel Television 32HDL51 (ITS CONNECTED THROUGH HDMI CABLE)


Page 18 of the manual, you shouldn't need to do steps 2 or 3.

CONNECTING A COMPONENT SOURCE WITH HDMI or DVI CAPABILITY TO INPUT 1 or INPUT 2
1.Connect the HDMI or DVI to HDMI connection cable from the output of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the HDMI input as shown on the AVC Center below.
2.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT R of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/R) jack.
3.With DVI output, connect the cable from the AUDIO OUT L of the HDTV set top box or DVD player to the INPUT (AUDIO/L) jack.
4.Press the INPUTS button, then select INPUTS 1 or 2 to view the program from the HDTV set top box or DVD player. The VIDEO OSD label disappears automatically after approximately four seconds.
5.Select ANT A or B from the INPUTS menu to return to the previous channel.
NOTES:1. Completely insert the connection cord plugs when connecting to rear panel jacks. The picture and sound that is played back will be abnormal if the connection is loose.
2. The HDMI input on INPUT 1 or 2 contains the copy protection system called High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). HDCP is a cryptographic system that encrypts video signals when using HDMI connections to prevent ******* copying of video contents.
3.HDMI is not a "NETWORK" technology. It establishes a one-way point-to-point connection for delivery of uncompressed video to a display.
4.The connected digital output device controls the HDMI interface so proper set-up of device user settings determines final video appearance.

How to connect blu ray player hdmi to my laptop


1) Look at your laptop computer to see if you have an HDMI cable port. This port is roughly half an inch wide and provides both the HD audio and video signal. If you don't, you are going to use a DVI port on the laptop. This is the same port you use to connect monitors to your computer.

2) Plug the DVI-to-HDMI adapter into the DVI port on the laptop with the Blu-ray player. If you have an HDMI port on your laptop, you can skip this step.

3) Connect an HDMI cable to the HDMI end of the adapter. If you have an HDMI port, plug the cable directly into the HDMI port.

4) Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the HD television. Power on your television, press the "Input" button and select "HDMI." You can now see the contents from your Blu-ray player on the TV.

Good luck

I would like to connect my Sanyo PLV-Z2 project to a DVD player with HDMI output in order to higer quality. I used a HDMI->DVI cable and connected DVI to Z2. I set the input 2 as RGB-HDCP. However it does...


I have the same unit (2 of them actually.) I have spent a lot of time on this very issue. The problem is that although the unit is "supposed" to be HDCP (digital copy protection) compatible, it is not fully. I've found that with some DVD players it will work for a minute or two and then go black, and with others, it will flash on and off, and with some it will never do anything but black. I have only found 2 ways around this. 1 is to use a computer (which does not use the HDCP) windows Vista/windows7 might have the same problems, but XP/2000/Linux work perfectly. The other solution that worked was to use a Playstation3 which seems to work perfectly with it playing DVDs and BlueRays.

HDMI to DVI-D conversion problem. Not in compliance?


It souunds like te TV is having problems with the streaming data being applied Most plasmas with DVI connections were actually designed for PC type input signals  Unfortunately the TV's input may not be able to stand up to the stream of signal the DVD or cable box wants to display. You can try and lower the output of both devices to 720P Good luck to you

I am using an HDMI cable on my STR-DG710 and get no sound


A lot of devices like PS3, HD DVD Players, Cable boxes, etc., require you to define on the setup menu if sound will be coming out of the HDMI cable or not. Most of these devices can be set to HDMI Auto, but not all of them do.

I currently have both my Blu-ray and HD DVD player outputting both video and sound through my HDMI into my STR-DG710. Both devices are setup to output sound through the HDMI.

But like the other person on here posted, it you have a DVI to HDMI cable, you won't be getting sound. The only device that will output sound from a DVI to HDMI are select computer graphics adapters like the GeForce 9800 GT series video cards, and even not all of those will have this feature.

Hope this helps.

Converting up to 1080


Hello. You have to use the HDMI port and connect to the HDMI, or DVI, port on the back of the TV to get 1080. Even if playing HDDVD, this cable is necessary to get the increase. That, and the TV has to be in 1080 too. If you look at the display, on the front of the player, while watching the DVD, it will tell you at what resolution the DVD is playing. The HDMI to HDMI/DVI must be installed to get the increase in resolution. I have a Panasonic HD 34" 1080i widescreen TV, with DVI connection. When connected, the player played my DVD's at 1080i on my TV, while at only 480i thru the composite cables.

On some older movies or series(I like Star Trek- TNG), it doesn't work well due to the transfer to the DVD. Most newer DVD's, such as Batman Begins (there is an HD out, but I have DVD only), improved on the upconvert for me nicely.

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.

Hp hd dvd player for desktop wont play hd dvds


I had this problem. Turned out that I was using a DVI cable to connect my monitor to the video card, but my monitor was not HDCP compliant. Most HD-DVD's require the monitor to be HDCP compliant for digital output (i.e. over DVI or HDMI connections). Alternately, you can connect to your monitor via its analog (VGA) input instead, but you won't get HD output. I was able to do this using a VGA cable along with the VGA-DVI adapter for the video card output.

Cyberlink has a tool you can run to see if your system is capable of HD-DVD output. http://www.cyberlink.com/multi/support/bdhd_support/diagnosis.jsp
When I ran it, it gave me a red flag telling me my monitor was not HDCP compliant
