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.

Mitsubishi VS-60805 Rear Projection won't operate in HD mode with Cable Box


Since this is an older first generation (1999) HD TV it may not be compatible with newer HDTV receivers because the standards back then were different - Make sure the HD cable box is plugged into the HD component inputs on the back of the TV (not the DVD inputs) and that the menu setting on the TV is set to DTV (not RGB) video. This TV will only accept 480i and 480p signals on the DVD input. Also the HDTV input will only accept 480i,480p and 1080i (it will not work with a 720p signal,make sure your cable box is not set to that mode)

Do i need hd cables for an hdtv?


If you want to watch some content in HD you will either need to connect your TV to the computer using a VGA or DVI cable, or connect using HDMI(picture + sound transfer) cable to the computer/DVD... You can connect your TV also using Cinch or Scart cables but you will not have HD resolution. Hope this helps!

The Wii is not a HD output source. It only displays 480p. If you wish to connect an HD source, you must connect through an HDMI cable or a component Cable. HDMI is better.

You may be able the settings of your directTV box to stop frustrating you. If you help me identify the model you are using, I can research the proper menu choices you will need to choose to select the correct features. There are many different directTV set-top boxes available.

My own home theater setup did the same thing, and my solution was to use component cables from the PVR instead of HDMI cables. It is too bad your blu-ray doesn't allow for this configuration.

My work-around until I realized that using different interconnects fixed the problem, was to turn the TV off and then on again whenever switching from HD to non-HD sources. This fixed my problem, maybe it will fix yours.

I hope that helps.

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.

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.
