Hi kgomer782 I have similar issue. My optoma hd20 signal connection with a 3/6ft hdmi cable is perfect. However, no signal is detected when connected to a 35ft hdmi 1.4 cable. The 35ft cable is indeed working becuase I tested it succesfully when connected to a 1080p HDTV. Did you received any solution to your problem? I wonder if it has anything to do with the HD20 design of the "debossed" hdmi ports that prevents the cable plug from getting completely "seated" in the port? My 35ft cable has a flat square male ending however, the 3/6ft cables have slim male ending that seems to accomodate perfectly in the Optoma's hdmi port design...kaufmanekpr

    Hi kgomer782: I solved HDMI signal issue. It was due to the 35ft cable plug male HDMI ending which indeed was not completely "seating" in the Optoma HD20 HDMI port. I solved the problem by purchasing a HDMI female to female coupler and adding a 3ft HDMI cable that had a slim female ending. This extension 3ft HDMI cable made better contact to the Optoma HDMI port and the projector was immediately able to detect HDMI signal. Hope this helps you... kaufmanekpr

    How did you discover that the seating issue was your problem? I am having the same problem with a 30 foot HDMI cable, and it seems fully seated to me.

I don't think you can hook a PS3 to 350W projector. You are maxing out the PS3 output. Good luck with it

I can not get 7.1 HDMI audio output on my Gateway GM5664 running Windows 7.


While DVI and HDMI offer compatible video lines, the DVI connection offers support for two analog audio channels only and cannot transport data packets required for digital audio. You will not get anything beyond 2.1 audio across the dongle.

If you have a HDMI connector on your graphics board and your external hardware, try to use a proper HDMI cable.

Hi i want to connect a tv to my optoma hd 66 projector


hi,
You can't be able to connect a tv to your projector, because it doesn't have a monitor out.
There is only one way. If the source is a DVD player then connect the its HDMI output to the projector and the component video out to the tv. You can't be able to get video out from the composite video output of your DVD player, when you are using HDMI. When plug the HDMI it will switch off the composite video out. The component video out remain ON whether you connect HDMI or not.
ok

I just got a new Optoma HD20 and only after 1day of use it is not showing HDMI signal, although it is showing VGA signal. Why is this?


Hi miracles4all: I solved HDMI signal issue in my Optoma HD20. In my case it was the lack of contact between the HDMI cable plug male ending and the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. My 35ft cable plug male HDMI ending was not completely "seating" in the Optoma HD20 HDMI female port. I solved the problem by purchasing a HDMI female to female coupler and adding a 3ft HDMI cable that had a slim male ending. This 3ft HDMI extension cable made better contact to the Optoma HDMI port and the projector was immediately able to detect HDMI signal. Hope this helps you... kaufmanekpr
