Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
Hi, We just purchased a 61 inch Samsung DLP tv and it is driving us crazy. The component box appears in the left hand corner of the tv at various times. Sometimes it appears during the program and other times when a commercial comes on. The technician that wired our house said the tv is switching between analog, HD or digital and this is why the box appears. We hooked the tv up to a different cable outlet and the component box did not appear once. This obviously has something to do with our home theater system because that is where the tv is plugged in when this problem happens. We had a Hitachi LCD tv with the same cable/connection and did not have a problem. (Our house and home theater system is a year old.) We have had the cable company out as well as, the tech that installed our home theater. We also exchanged the tv and still had the same problem. There has to be a simple explanation as to why this is happening but no one can give us one. We like the tv but don't like that box popping up every minute. I have been reading about different cables, HDMI and DVI but have no idea what any of that means. All of our components in the home theater are Marantz and are located in a central area. Like I said, the home theater was installed just a year ago. I'm not sure what other information you might need about our system but I can't believe we are the only ones experiencing this problem. Samsung has been no help and I can't find any information about this problem. I'm sure it is something easily fixable but we are not smart enough to figure it out. Any help you can provide would be wonderful.
We are having the same problem but can't find the driver on the Samsung website. Can you tell me EXACTLY where to get it?

HDMI = High Definition Media Interface
DVI = Digital Video Interface
That kind of conflict (that's what it is) is tough for any one company to assist you on since it involves two manufacturers.
If you are very lucky, you might get help from a tech who has already stumbled across the same equipment complement.
