PC videocard-HDMI input not working any more.

It says in the Akai manual that the HDMI input doesnt support PC video cards. Using an older Raedon 9800pro AGP with VGA/HDMI/S-video outputs, the input worked for about 20 minutes till I updated the drivers and rebooted. Ive tryed reloading the origonal drivers and still no video. Is there an adapter made to convert from HDMI to an RGB input ?

Re: PC videocard-HDMI input not working any more.

There is acompany that makes such a converter BUT it is getting hard to get because HDCP (hd copy protection) can be bypassed with it. I will get the company name for you but search ebay for a hdmi to component converter. It works pretty well. You may need to get the HDMI to DVI converter cable for $8 as well.

I have a wd-62525 dlp i have pic and sound through ant. and hdmi but on component and video inputs i only get sound no pic

It seems to be some fault with its HDMI cable you connect to this device from the source. As you get sound by HDMI, and no picture at all, this indicates the fault with cable itself. There is a cution notice says that " To assure continued FCC compliance, the user must use a shielded video interface cable
with bonded ferrite cores at both ends, when using the PC or HDMI input."
Cheang the cable and check.

Input 6 - HD Input - Green Screen. Audio Only. No picture.

Hi there,
I am having a similar problem with the inputs. I have a cable box plugged in to cable antenna, DVD to video 6 using HDMI, Mac computer plugged in to video 7 - using HDMI (TV does not recognize this) and then Nintendo Wii hooked up to Video 1. My problem is that Sony only realizes 2 additional components like the video 1 (wii) and DVD on video 6, it does not play the other components. I have to niw manually switch the cables to have them work...

PC to TV can't seem to get to work.

okay buddy its esay just give me a good rate!

u select:
1. S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.
2. VGA - If you have a HDTV, then you will be better off connecting using a VGA cable. It gives much better quality than S-Video and as with S-Video, the cable is very cheap. You usually won’t find a VGA port on regular TV’s though, so this option is if you have an HDTV.
3. DVI - DVI stands for Digital Visual Interface with “digital” being the key word there. The digital signal will give a higher quality picture than either S-Video or VGA. Of course, your computer will need to have a DVI connection and your TV will need to be an HDTV. This cord is definitely not cheap, it ranges anywhere from $40 to $80.
4. HDMI - Using HDMI will give you the best quality by far. No computers that I know of yet have HDMI ports, but you can get a DVI to HDMI cable to connect it to your HDTV. HDMI is compatible with DVI.
5. Scan Converter Box - This is the last method that I could think of and it involves using a scan converter box, which takes a VGA signal and converts it into S-Video or component video.

I have a pensonic dvd player. it has sound but no video.

Check your Video connection from dvd player to TV.
Check your DVD player and see if you need to "activate" your video source or not by going to the setup menu.
Check your TV input to be sure you have switch the video input from your remote or manually on the tv.
Lastly,try another video input behind the tv,maybe your first video input does not work.
If you try both video inputs behind the tv, you might consider using a different video cable,you might have a defective video input UNLESS you are using HDMI cable,then nothing of the above steps will applied!

No sir, there is not such switch in menu to change input from S video to HDMI or something. Here is one suggestion, Use 3 RCA pins cable (Audio L/R & Video) to connect both unit and check/ remember TV input and same should be selected in TV menu.
