Will this projector work for HD TV?

I realize I will have to get the computer connection cable but will it project HD and can you notice a difference? I am thinking about buying this projector.

I have this projector and I use it to watch both Blu-ray discs and Dish Network HD programing with the outputs set to 720p. I have the component analog outputs of each device plugged into a Sony AV receiver. I have a cable that has component (red, blue, and green) RCA connectors on one end and a D-15 computer style video connector on the other end that goes to the projector from the receiver. HD programs look very good. It is not full blown 1080p quality but it is much better than standard definition TV or DVD. You must use the Progressive Scan mode for maximum effect. I know that technically this projector should not be HD based on its specifications, but it definitely is noticeably better than standard definition. I would love to have a 1080p projector someday. I think Optoma has one out now for under $1000.

While the projector may attempt to display the HD TV, it will be poor quality if a image is displayed at all.

The native resolution is to low as per the specifications. The resolution needs to be at at leat 480P to be compatble with HD TV.

The image color on projection is not the same as shown in laptop. There's is no red color.


It could be a broken connection in the computer lead for the red signal, or a fault on the projector that the red panel doesn't work any more.

To diagnose, bring up the projector's on screen display. If there's white in the menus then the problem is the cable. Replace it with a new one. If the menus are affected too then it's a projector problem. This requires the attention of a service engionner.

Look for the F-key with a square/icon of a laptop. Press FN+This button until you see your screen display show that it will be using your LCD + the output on your computer. Remember you need to hook both the VGA or HDMI out to the projecter as well as the USB cable.

How do you hook up cable tv to my epson powerlite 830p lcd video projector


To hook up cable tv, you will need to have the cable running into a vcr 1st, then run either your s-video cable or audio video cables into the projector. Press the Source Search button on the remote control or the projector repeatedly until you see the image you want to project on the screen. The projector has two Source buttons.
Use the Computer/Component button to switch between equipment
connected to the Computer/Component ports.
Use the Video/S-Video button to switch between equipment
connected to the Video and S-Video ports.
? The remote control has four Source buttons. Use them to switch
between devices connected to the ports identified on each button.
(The PowerLite 830p does not support EasyMP.TM)
You can preview all sources on one screen to help you select the
desired source. (Allow a few seconds for the projector to sync up
after pressing the button.)

DVI-HDMI not working with Sanyo Z2


HD comes as 720p and 1080p - the Sanyo will cope with 720 but not 1080 full HD - check the specs in the manual. You should have a DVD output setting for screen mode.

Cinego connection cables


The question seems to indicate that you don't have the cables. The unit comes with three different cable for video input. One for Component (HD), one for S-Video (looks like the round plug for a mouse on a computer, but is wired differently), and one that has a single yellow plug that probably is compatible with your VCR. If you don't have the proper cables, get with your Radio Shack dealer to get the, since trying to use a cable which was not designed for the unit may cause damage.

You have not set the port on the back of the projector settings.

Go into the projector menu and go into the IMAGE area. Somewhere in here you should be able to select computer.
