its telling you that you cant use the format that your source is set up for .. like 1080P wont play on a monitor that wont support that ..also hdmi requires an exchange of information between units before it will allow 1080 resolution (thats to prevent recording of high resolution material) the adapter may block that exchange .. if you set the source to 720 or less resolution then its likely to start working .. problem is .. if you cant see it how do you set it .. if your remote has an obvious button for that then you can just try selecting different modes and wait 10 seconds to see if it works .. if its not obvious then perhaps you can temporarily use svideo or composite in order to set up the source machine ..
There is nothing broken, but you must become aware of the different standards in DVI connectors.
1)DVI-D which you have, does not have the 4 analog control pins around the alpha bar meaning it only works on digital devices.
2)DVI-A only has the 4 control pins and no bar, as well as a total of only 9-10 pins altogether. This is designed for analog only, and rarely see it anymore.
3)DVI-I stands for Interlaced, meaning it can work both ways, but will not fit in monitors that are set up for DVI-D because the analog pin sockets do not exist.
You can get more detailed by counting the pins in the rectangular area, if you use all 24 pins you have what is called a Dual-Link cable, so it can support resolutions over 1920x1280 if you have about 9 pins missing it is single-link and is limited resolution.
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.
I had a similar issue, try adjusting the advanced settings on the DVD player.....I can't recall which settings it should be on, but when I adjusted them on my upconverting DVD player everything worked fine after.
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.
