Runco DTV-5800-component to BNC connection problem
I have a Runco Runco DTV-5800 (the 65in not 58in). I need to know how to connect my High-Def component output from my cable box to the RGBS (5-BNC) imput on my TV? The TV has 2 inputs: 1) 3-RCA component @480p; & 2) 5-BNC @ 1080i. The cable box is connected to 480p, but not the 1080i. I would like to have both attached if possible. Thank you

If you satellite is HD don't connect it to either port, Use an HDMI or component (5 wire cable) so as to receive high def signals. If you must uase channel 3, You want the ATV input. On channel 3 YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE HD PROGRAMMING> check your hookup guide from Dish network.
For some reason I cannot reply to other inquiry would you please close the problem, I am glad that the configurations worked out for you.
In order to configure the proyector for hd video you would need to change a couple of things in your set up.
First you would need to use hd cables, and not the rgb. You can
purchase some standard high def cables at any best buy or radioshack,
depending on the source device there is the standard high def out, the
set of 5 cables, 3 video plus the 2 audio.
To enable the unit to support the progressive DVD signal, perform the following procedure.
Connect the DVD player’s component output into Input A. In the SET SETTING menu select HDTV-YPbPr for Input A. In the INPUT SETTING menu highlight Sync and select EXT (HV). The IDTV module disables itself automatically
Perform this procedure with nothing connected
to the component input on the projector, otherwise you will get the an
off/on flickering screen which prevents you from seing what you are
doing when navigating the menu screens. Perform the procedure and then
Your TV plays High Def material through either Input 4 (uses component cables R,G,B) or through Input 5 (Uses DVI cable).
Today most equipment uses HDMI cable for High Def or it may have a component (RGB) output that you can use. The DVI hookup is best, so you need a HDMI to DVI cable or Component Cables (Red, Green, Blue). You need some source that OUTPUTS High def (ex. 1080i) either through HDMI or component cable. You need to either connect the component cable(R,G,B) from the source to the Input 4 on the TV or connect the HDMI to DVI cable from the source to the Input 5.
You need to set the AV source on the TV to AV5 (if you are using the DVI input) or AV4 (if you are using component cables).
If you want to play Highdef source like Blue Ray then you can just connect the output of the blu ray player to your Tv using either the HDMI to DVI cable or component cable (Red, Green, Blue) and set the TV input to AV5 (for HDMI/DVI) or AV4 (for component).
But if you are trying to get Free High Def from an antenna then you will need to have a component that can OUTPUT high def. The $40 converter boxes don't do this - they simply convert the Digital signal to Analog (non high def). What you need is a High Def TUNER that OUTPUTS High Def. I was looking for one for this same reason and ordered the centronics ZAT 502 HD. But it cost about $80. Then I saw that Tivo had an upgrade deal where I could upgrade my existing Series 2 Tivo to Tivo HD for $99. It has a High Def Tuner in it. So I cancelled my order with Centronics and got the Tivo. In any case if you want Over the air HD you will need a High Def Tuner that will OUTPUT 1080.
1) Connect the Tivo using the coax output of the cable box into the cable input of the Tivo
2) Exchange cable boxes with your cable provider for one with composite output jacks. It may require you to use a Motorola box that isn't High def depending on what your provider has. I know Comcast has a Motorola HD tuner that has composite outputs as well as component.
3) Upgrade to a Series 3 Tivo. Those units are designed for High Def. Use HDMI cable hookup.
My information indicates that the DTV-5801 has a NTSC (analog TV) tuner built in bot not and ATSC (digital tuner). It does have HDTV inputs to which an external tuner can be connected. For Off-Air Digital TV, add an HDTV (ATSC High Definition tunner) and you are set to go. Do not buy the DTV converters, they have down converters built in and only deliver SD to the outputs.
