RGB Not Available

Hi. I have a Vivitek 51" projection HDTV. When I hookup my Xbox 360 to the RGB/VGA port and select the RGB input, the screen reads "UNAVAILABLE". If I hook the Xbox 360 to a flat screen VGA monitor, there is no problem. Is there someway I need to set the TV up to accept the VGA signal from the Xbox 360?

SOURCE: Mitsubishi WS-65809 65 in Projection TV problem with vertical stripes

I'm fairly sure that the 2hdw board is the culprit here. The 2hdw pwb is Mitsubishi original p/n# 935c966001 which has since been substituted to p/n#935c966002 and costs roughly $420.00 dollars plus shipping.
It's a common failure in these units, but it's not a difficult repair for a reputable shop..
Another alternative is to have ashop pull that board and send it in to PTS Electronics for rebuild. That might save about $100.00 dollars.
Please don't rate me badly for the bad news.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound

Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

SOURCE: LG 37LC7D Connect to VGA from a PC

Your right. I just had the same "Invalid Input" issue as well and it completely relates to the resolution compatability with any VGA or HDMI connection. Check the LG website for the online manual if you don't have it and see the section on RGB-PC cable. There is a table that incdicates the Resolutions the LG product is capable of displaying.

Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: Samsung LCD TV not receiving PC signal

Hello!

This Samsung LA40C350 TV requires all pins are connected from D15 D15 VGA cable
Some cables what they sell in market dont have all wires connected. Only RGB, Grounds and Horizontal and Vertical sync but missing other connections
Samsung uses those other pins detect if PC is connected or not.

Next time you buy VGA cable, take multimeter with you and check that all pinns are connected through, before buying cable.

How do I hook up Xbox 360 to the HDTV


Step 1:

Connect the audio/video input of the component cable into the "A/V" port located on the back of the xbox 360


Step 2:

Match the red, blue and green cables on the other end of the component cable to the corresponding component ports on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one set of component inputs, make note of which one you use.



Step 3:

Slide the switch on the component cable to "HDTV."



Step 4:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the component port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually be labeled "Component 1," "Component 2" and so on


Step 5:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Choose the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that is best compatible with your HDTV. If you're not sure, try them all until you find the one that looks best.



Step 6:

Disconnect any previously connected A/V or component cables.



Step 7:

Connect the HDMI AV cable connector to the "HDMI AV" port on the Xbox 360.



Step 8:

Connect the other end to an available HDMI port on your HDTV. If your HDTV has more than one HDMI input, make note of which one you use.



Step 9:

Turn on your HDTV. Set the video mode to the HDMI port that will be used. HDTVs with multiple component ports will usually label them "HDMI 1," "HDMI 2" and so on.



Step 10:

Turn on the Xbox 360. Go to "My Xbox." Select "System Settings" then "Console Settings" then "Display" and then "HDTV Settings." Pick the display setting (720p, 1080i and 1080p) that looks best on your HDTV.

Get a component video cable (blue, green, red) and a separate RCA audio cable (white and red) if your cable box has a component video output and the TV has a component video input.

If your cable box doesn't have the component output, you will need a converter to go from the HDMI to component video. Something like this: http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-component.html . There are other converters available if your TV has some other inputs available.

A cable that has an HDMI M on one end and a VGA M on the other will not work. HDMI signals from the set top box are a digital signal. The VGA port on the TV is set to read an RGB analog signal. (Similarly a component to VGA cable would not work since the RGB and PbPrY are not compatible.)

I hope this helps.

How do we connect the projector to the pc?


Hook up using the S-Video port, the VGA port, RCA port, or the RS-232 port. The USB port is not used for input on at least some of the Viviteks as per Vivitek Service"The USB port is not in input port. This is used for service only. Please use another input port such as RGB input. Regards, Vivitek Customer Service"

Hope this helps.

How to turn on rgb from lap top to tv.


In order to connect your laptop to your TV using RGB, you need an RGB adapter. RGB is also known as component video; it breaks up a video signal into red, green and blue. laptops do not have RGB outputs. However, many laptops have VGA, DVI or HDMI outputs. An RGB adapter connects the single VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable to an RGB cable, which is actually three different cables tied together. INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Connect either the VGA, DVI or HDMI (in the order of increasing video quality) cable to the VGA, DVI or HDMI port on your laptop, depending on what is available. 2. Connect the other end of the cable to the side of the RGB adapter with the single input. 3. Connect the RGB cables to the red, green and blue ports on the other side of the RGB adapter. 4. Connect the other end of the RGB cables to an available component input on the back of the TV. 5. Tune the TV to the component video input you used through your television's menu. 6. Turn on your laptop. The laptop should now display on your TV screen.

Can i use my lg lcd 19 inches as a pc monitor which have a rgb port


Your TV must have a VGA port. Look on the back for the computer hookup. It will be like a trapezoid shape with several holes that the VGA cable from your computer will plug into.
If so, go to the menu and highlight VGA input to operate.

Make sure you are using ports other than the USB port. Vivitek Service indicates that at least some of their projectors do not use the USB port for input. "The USB port is not in input port. This is used for service only. Please use another input port such as RGB input. Regards, Vivitek Customer Service

Hope this helps.

Hello
VGA and DVI are not compactable. Your TV has no provision to connect it to computer.

DVI-HDTV Input (Input 1)

Use this DVI-HDTV Input for your external devices with DVI-HDTV output such as a Set-Top-Box, high-band DTV decoders, DVD
players and D-VHS with Digital Content Protection

1. Only DTV format such as 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p are available for DVI-HDTV input.

2. The DVI-HDTV input is NOT compatible when used with a DVD player from a personal computer.

3. When connecting a Set-Top-Box with a copy-protect digital out terminal, a high definition picture can be displayed
on the screen in its digital form
OK.

How do I connect a PC to a LG50PG20 50" HDTV Plama?


You need a VGA cable (15 pin) connected from PC (monitor out) to the PC input on the HDTV (15 pin) this is for the video. For the audio, connect from PC to HDTV, audio cable, either 3.5mm from earphone out on PC to HDTV 3.5mm audio input (next to PC VGA input) and also be sure to set PC screen resolution to compatible output for HDTV like 1024 X 768 or 600 x 800 etc.

Which cable do i need to get my xbox to work on my HD tv


any will work asl long as your tv has the inputs available. but the _2_ that work the best i know personally is hdmi first and foremost. then your component cable (red, green, blue). i used them both on hd tv's and hdmi by far is the best. but if you have a vga (computer hookup) on your tv, i suggest trying the xbox vga cable second just as good as hdmi but the audio cables will hookup to another spot on the back of the tv. hope this helps.

RGB port


A VGA & RGB port is the same thing. RGB is Red/ Green/ Blue for seperate input & VGA the video graphics array which does the same thing.
A DVi is an entirely different type of input port for digital input where your VGA port is more for analogue type inputs
