    Hi, thanks for the answer, i didn't do the trick thow...
    I saw that I seem to only can choose between 1080A, 1080B & 1035I on my screen, not 1080I or 720P, could that be some problem?

    Ah, I was afraid of that, and I know read that my DVI doesnt suport HDCP, so...

    On the other hand I have enjoyd HD-ready on my plasma before but trhrow the bnc contacts. The problem now is that my TV-box doesn't have other than HDMI and scart and the scart doesnt send HD. Is it possible to get BNC contacts from an HDMI cable?

    You will need to reset signal paths for HDMI inputs from the setup menu

    in actual fact, your set predates true HD or even "full" HD ready. The HD settings it has are more for connecting a computer to the set, and only has Japanese HD ability(1035i) . So yes, I think you may need to upgrade you TV if you want "true" DigitalVideoBroadcast standard HD. Sorry man. That's what happens when a standard improves and surpasses old technology.



    regards

    A fixya rating would be great for my efforts to help you man, sorry that your fav old set isnt up to the job anymore... time to upgrade for that extra performance.Its well worth it man, for your watching pleasure that is ;)



    regards

How do I convert an HD tv that doesn't have HDMI to be able to use this format?


There are adapters that can covert the HDMI signal to a DVI plug, but at a price. DVI does not handle audio as does HDMI. Most devices that have HDMI outputs will not parallel the audio to allow you to use adapter plus audio cables. You have most likely come upon this issue of obsolescence in you current device.

How do I get my HDMI ports to read 1080i instead of DVI?


The question really doesn't make sense. That's because 1080i is a signal resolution, and DVI is the connection cable that carries the signal. The two things are connected, but different.

It sounds as if your TV is searching for a signal; looking first at the HDMI input, and then the DVI input, before giving up because it found no signal.

Your next question should add some detail about the makes and models of the equipment involved and how you have them connected.

Link ASUS laptop to Sharp Aquos LCD TV


No, a DVI to VGA adapter will not work. (The TV is looking for the digital signal from a set top box. This is different from the analog signal on the VGA cable.) You need a converter. Your best bet would be a VGA to component video converter. (I am assuming that the Sharp TV has a component video input.) This page has some examples: http://www.ramelectronics.net/audio-video/video-converters/vga-rgb-hv-to-component-video/c10000-c11200-c11215.html?sorter=productname-en-asc . Note a VGA to component video cable will not work. The VGA to component cables are for projectors that read the RGB signal. The component video signal is YPbPr.

Connect the VGA cable to the converter and the component video cable to the TV and the converter with the computer and TV off. Turn on the TV first and set it to the component video input and then turn on the computer. Then (assuming the VGA port is enabled - adjust in the BIOS if needed) set the computer's video output to the VGA port. (On my Windows 7 laptop, this can be done by right-clicking on the desktop. Choose Graphics Properties and set the display to the external monitor or both. Click Apply and then confirm the change (on the external monitor if using the single monitor). (VGA to Composite video converters also exist if you do not have an available component video input on your TV.)

If your computer is fairly new, you may have an HDMI port. Your TV may be able to read the signal with a DVI to HDMI cable. (It depends on the TV. Not all of them will read the computer's signal on the DVI port. Check the documentation for your model. TVs without a VGA port are less likely to support this feature.)

I hope this helps.

How do I connect my PS3 to my sanyo dp50747 in hdmi? I have everything hooked up correctly, but its not coming up on the TV. What do I do?????


If you see a no signal message, then it means that the signal output format of the PS3 does not match . It happens if you have previous used it on another tv and now connected it to a different tv. To resolve this, turn off the PS3 . Press and hold the power button on the PS3 till you hear three BEEPS. The PS3 should automatically detect the tv's resolution and the initial setup screen should appear. After that you should just follow on-screen instructions to set it up.

While trying to change channels, my t.v. displayed ''no signal'' and then shut itself off. Now, when I turn it on, it says no signal and turns itself off after a few seconds.


Turn the television on and as soon as the screen turns on repeatily press the input button or change the input to whatever input you are using from a source device. As long as you change it to anything other than RGB.

Your television is essentially a big computer monitor with multiple inputs and a tuner. When using your computer and shutting it down the monitor will go in a power save mode. You don't need to shut off your monitor due to this power saving mode. When you power up your computer your monitor automatically turn on.

With the VIZIO and the RGB (computer) input the television will act just like a computer monitor. When you have a computer connected it will power down automatically when you shut off your computer. When you turn your computer on the VIZIO will automatically come out of standby mode. This is through RGB only.

This is normal operation for the VIZIO but can see confusing when nothing is connected to the RGB input. If you change your television input to RGB it will sense no signal on the input and will go into standby mode after about 5 - 10 seconds. If you were to send a signal to the television through RGB it would automatically kick on.

Cable TV: Connect the LCD TV to the cable with CATV and Digital cable. Preset the cable TV channels into memory with Auto Scan function when using a cable TV system. Make sure you set the INPUT SOURCE properly (TV, VGA, S-Video, etc)
