Question about Hitachi 51F500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My manuel for sat. says hdmi to dvi works except for audio.
I have also the three cable output to imput from sat to tv but it doesnt give picture either. only s-video transfers picture.
my son suggested hdmi to dvi and said his projection tv picture quality improved significately. is there a switch in the menus that changes input/output from s-video to either the cables or the hdmi/dvi connection?
Something is not correct here. The S-video input is a different input selection than HDMI. You should have menu options that allow you to select the input. Some sets will not show you any options that have no connections though. HDMI connections are "interactive" so that they may not appear while "off". Each set is a bit different.
Perhaps to be sure that we all are on the same page, you could post a line drawing showing how you currently have your equipment connected and a different diagram showing how you would like it connected.

No sir, there is not such switch in menu to change input from S video to HDMI or something. Here is one suggestion, Use 3 RCA pins cable (Audio L/R & Video) to connect both unit and check/ remember TV input and same should be selected in TV menu.

illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow

turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.

DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
