Question about Sony VPH D50HTU Multimedia Projector
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
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 connect.
Let me know if you need anything else,

Hi the first step to solve this problem is to uninstall the drivers for Sony VPH D50Q then reinstall them again.

Some cables are not compatible for the higher settings like,720i or 1080.but they will work for 480i settings.
Read the procedure:--
Composite Video (Analog, limited to 480i, High Definition not possible)
The lowest quality of video signal, but also one of the most common, found in everything from video games to VHS machines and DVD players. Composite is limited to 480i (standard definition) resolution. Once you’ve seen a higher end high definition signal (720p, 1080i, 1080p), chances are you’ll abandon all sources using composite video, but if you have a large collection of Beta tapes or an old video game, you’ll still need to send a composite video signal to your projector.
Most commercial grade projectors will have a BNC connector for the video connection on the input jack panel. This is a higher grade connector than the consumer RCA jack on the back of a DVD player, and Radio Shack sells a BNC to RCA adapter that will convert the connections. One trick is to use RG-6 cablevision cable as your video cable connection to the projector. That way you can run the video cable up to about 300 feet without loss of the video signal. Simply buy an RCA to F (cablevision connector) adapter at the video source end, and get a second adapter at the projector which is a BNC to F adapter. Then run your cablevision wire between the two.
S-Video (Analog, limited to 480i, High Definition not possible) One step above a composite video signal but still limited to 480i (standard definition) signals. High definition (720p, 1080i, 1080p) is not possible. Relatively speaking, I’d say that an S-Video signal is about 25% better in picture detail than a composite video signal, so wherever possible, use an S-Video feed to send to the projector over a composite video signal. Use the S-video connection will get about 20% more detail (my estimation) over a composite video connection.
Due to the black and white and chroma (color) signal being run separately within an S-video cable, the general recommended length of an S-video cable is limited to 30 feet or less. Longer runs will show that the black and white and color images will not overlap completely on the screen, and the color portion of the signal can lag the black and white one by ¼" on the screen. I’ve seen this happen in one of my own installations, and the only cure is to use a shorter S-video cable (or buy a very expensive S-video signal booster with adjustable phasing controls on it). It is very easy to bend one of the 4 pins on the S-video cable, take care not to bend a pin, or a loss of picture or color will result.
This above cable will help.
Component/YPbPr (Analog, 480i to 1080p resolutions supported):-- Component (YPbPr) signals come in varying resolutions and can support from a basic 480i standard definition video signal all the way up to 1080p high definition. High definition signals usually come in 1080i or 720p outputs from a high definition cable/satellite box and 1080i, 720p, or 1080p from HD-DVD/Blu-Ray players. Note: A component signal is NOT the same as an RGB signal even through the color coding is the same. The signals in component cables are broken up differently than those carried in an RGBHV cable so you cannot switch between the two using simple cables.
The introduction of the component signal format has caused more confusion and frustration than any other signal format. Sometime in 1994 (I’m guessing), some brilliant engineer decided that the decades old RGB industry standard for commercial and industrial video was not good enough for the consumer industry, and thus the component format was invented. Even though the three wires that are coloured red, green and blue for the component signal would indicate a plug and play connection to a display or projecto's RGB input, as component signal and RGB signal are NOT compatible. If you connect a component signal to an RGB input, you’ll only get a green image. The R and B output will be very low.

I'll suggest you to use an S-Video cable or a BNC cable if you have them, to check whether it is working with them. Also, check the RGB adjustments and reset them from the RGB menu and reset it as it works with 64KHz signal only. Please visit this link and check the settings as given in the manual--
