Question about Projection Televisions

Open Question

I HAVE A HISENSE HSLC8133A TV WHICH HAS A COMPONENT INPUT BUTTON AND HDMI BUTTON BUT THE REST OF THE INPUTS ARE CONTROLLED BY MAIN CH. BUTTON (INCLUDING THE ABOVE). I AM TRYING TO SET THE TV TO VGA INPUT VIA THE HARMONY REMOTE BUT IT WILL NOT GOT TO THE CORRECT INPUT BECAUSE THERE IS NO DIRECT BUTTON TO BRING UP THE VGA INPUT. WHEN YOU SET IT UP USING THE PROPER METHOD IN THE HARMONY REMOTE IT STILL WONT GO TO VGA.

SOURCE: Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 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.

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: Mitsubishi HDMI connection trouble

I have the same issue with my 73". Rather then going over all of my connections and equipment I'll just say htat I feel your frustration. I have been on the phone with Mitsubishi directly and it appears as though they have a free software upgrade that should address this problem. If you call 1-800-332-2119 and press 4 in the menu you will get someone to help you. Be patient. They will make you go through all of the fixes that you have already tried. They will mail you a flash drive that goes right into the front USB port of your TV. I hope this is of help. Good luck.

SOURCE: Green Plaid then Vertical Lines, Failure of hard controls, Analog Board?

You are absolutely correct, When anyone complains of vertical lines or bars, the next step is to see if it happens on only digital inputs ( digital board ) , only analog inputs ( analog board ) , or both ( DMD board ) .

Analog board can be purchased at www.partstore.com ,

480p to 1080i


Your TV should automatically switch to 1080i if the source input is in 1080i format. Also, since your TV does not have HDMI, you must use the component 1 or 2 inputs (using component cables) for 1080i source material. You cannot get 1080i from composite or s-video inputs. You should be able to switch to the component inputs using the remote or the front control panel using TV/Video button.

Can't get the play station to work with the tv. The av is plugged in correctly and the ps is turned on. Don't know which channel to go to, and when EXT we tried all different inputs and it still doesn't...


Which generation playstation are you referring to The PS2 or PS3. The PS2 would be connected with a composite cable by default i.e red white and yellow cable. Connect the cable to the corresponding input on the TV, match color codes. Switch to correct input by using your remote controller. Press the AV button and a list of inputs come's up.Select av1 or av2 and check if you get a picture. If you use a ps3 then same as before press AV button on remote and select appropriate option on screen HDMI,Component or Composite.

How do I change my remote for TV to Input Video 1?


There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.

Can't connect cable tv


Easiest way is to connect the cable wire (75 Ohm) to your tuner's input.

Best way in terms of performance (if you have HDTV and both your cable tuner and TV have HDMI cables) is to connect the cable box using a HDMI cable it had both audio and video.

Next best is component cable out (Red, Green & Blue wires) to the TV's component inputs.

Next best in terms of performance is to use the RCA cables from the box Video out and Audio out right and left to the Audio Videio inputs of your TV..

You may also use S-Video and Audio cables.

After connecting it up, you need to select the correct input on your TV or projection TV.

Hope this helps. :)
