Question about iLO 2600 Television

HDMI->DVI cable won't work

I have a 26" Ilo brand TV. For use with my computer the DVI works fine, but when I try to plug in my HDMI cable box or HDMI DVD player to the DVI outlet, the TV is not able to pick up a signal. Is this because it's the wrong type of DVI or something like that? If it helps, the computer is a G4 Powerbook, while the cable box is a Scientific Atlantic Explorer 8300HD and the DVD player is part of a Samsung HT-Q70 home theater system. Thanks for your help.

I have bought a HDMI cable and I cant seem to get my Prosonic to work with my pc. It works on other TV's The cable works fine with dvd player. Is there somewhere on the TV I shall activate first? I...

How many HDMI Inputs are available on the TV? Also, are you trying to project your computer to the TV or get TV on your PC?
I will assume the first scenario. The only thing I can suggest is that if there are multiple HDMI inputs then you will need to choose the correct one to change it to. If it does not give you that option on the TV input switcher menu then you can try to plug and unplug (while everything is on and attempting to project) the HDMI cable into different inputs on the TV until you find the right one.
Alternatively you can use a VGA/DVI cable depending what is on the back of the TV and that will definately work, but won't be HD.
Hope this helps.

I have a Samsung Series 6-650 LCD TV (Model # LN46A650A1F). I am trying to connect my Laptop to use the TV as a monitor and have done everything to make it work, using a VGA/HDMI cable, but the TV refuses...

Why do you use VGA-HDMI cable? This TV works fine with VGA cable - it has VGA plug.
Or if your notebook has DVI output, then you can use DVI/HDMI cable and connect it to the TV to plug named DVI/HDMI (only one HDMI input is marked as DVI on TV).
I suppose that over HDMI the TV supports only some standard resolutions, but over VGA it supports almost every resolution laptops use. You can find supported resolutions for each input in the TV manual. Try setting the same resolution on the laptop.

HDMI->DVI cable won't work

Are you using a HDMI to DVI cable or are you using a HDMI to DVI adapter? Sometimes, though not on all products you have to go into the menu and select which out put your using for each source and whats going through it. You might need to go into your dvd player menu and tell it not to try to run audio through the cable. That way it's not trying to force a signal through the cable that cant be accepted by the TV. That might possible solve your problem for the DVD player. Let me know if it works
Have a Great day

Ilo 27 inch hdmi/dvi hd tv monitor

Hi, I'm afraid that not only a cable is needed but an analog (vga) to digital (dvi) converter/scaler as well. The iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12 can hook up to a PC using the DVI-I connection only. As you said, your computer has the standard 1D15 pin VGA connector. Another possibility is if your video card has a composite video output (normally a color yellow RCA female) or an S-Video output which will both connect direct to your iLo LCD Display V27DMBX-U12. For the RCA connection all you need is an ordinary RCA to RCA shielded wire cable and for the S-Video, an S to S Video cable will work. There is of course the question about the quality or the resolution. Good luck and hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.

Connection to a computer

This TV has an HDMI interface, not DVI. If your source is DVI, you can get an DVI to HDMI adapter. The HDMI carries both video and audio data, so you will need to connect your audio separately.
