Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television
I rec'd a gift, a Sony Blue Ray Wireless DVD player. But, my tv does not have HDMI connection. So i purchased a Sony Component to HDMI converter. Connected it to the tv (component 1)and DVD player. It doesn't work. Can you help me?
Does the TV have a plug connection I think is called DVI. There is a DVI to HDMI adapter that also needs an audio connection on TV to work. Other option is audio and video rca cables. You may also need to change input connection to correct source, as it may not be auto for connection

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HDMI Signal gone
The HDMI interface may have suffered a malfunction, this offten happens due to stray voltages on the ground plane. If you do not have electronics experience I would suggest taking the set to the shop and having it repaired

1) I believe the "3 prong" you mean the RCA A/V cable. This cable is color coded red/white/Yellow (Right Audio/Left Audio/Video). This cable is OK for regular TV but when it come to HD, the quality of the picture fall short.
But you also could mean the 3 wires component cable that color coded Green/Blue/Red. If you plug only this without the Red/White for the speaker then you will only see the picture. This component cable help make the pic a lot clearer. But I believe not as good as DVI and HDMI. More info here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_display_interfaces
2) Most universal remote control come with a preset of keys to emulate other remotes. You need to search for the owner manual to figure out how and what code to put to use with a certain device.
Most new Universal remotes has a learning mode too that the user can "teach" the remote to emulate that "IR signal".
Now for the "HOW". It's a little complicated. But here is my 2cents. Most basic remotes has a light in front and this light is Infra Red light. So you don't see the light but it blinks. The blinking is the data of 1 and 0 that computer uses. Most of the time the remote is in sleep mode which uses very little power. One press of the button, it switch on the remote and carry out the performance of that button. The brain of the remote figure out which button was pressed and search in it's memory for the blinking pattern and blinks the light with that pattern and then fall back to sleep.
For the pattern itself, it contain informations. It usually start with the ID of the device that suppose to receive the signal. Follow is the "flag" and then the information of the button that was pressed. Then the final signal is basically say "End" to indicate that the message end. All device within range will get this information but if the ID don't belong to it, it will ignore the entire message.
Hope what I said helped. :D
