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. when i hook my dvd player to my tv through the hdmi cable it doesnt pick up a signal and it will play the dvd for a second and then it goes to blu screen and the to the movie and it continues to repeat this cycle. i bought a new hdmi cable thing that was my problem and updated the software on my tv but it still does it what is wrong with my setup?

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

hi,
Your TV didn't have any HDMI port. Do you mean the DVI port. do you use DVI cable or DVI to HDMI cable.
The only way to check whether the DVI port is working or not is by replacing the cable. purchase a new cable and try again.
ok

Can't get audio since switched to HDMI cable


The audio ouput of the box must not be set to hdmi. If hdmi is not an audio output choice you may have to choose 48khz or 96khz also known as pcm.
If this is an hdmi to dvi cable it would not carry sound and you would have to connect a red and white audio composite cable in addition to the hdmi cable if you tv and box allows for that.

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

HDMI to DVI-D conversion problem. Not in compliance?


It souunds like te TV is having problems with the streaming data being applied Most plasmas with DVI connections were actually designed for PC type input signals  Unfortunately the TV's input may not be able to stand up to the stream of signal the DVD or cable box wants to display. You can try and lower the output of both devices to 720P Good luck to you

I have an ilo 32hd


Unfortunately the ILO TVs aren't a good investment. If you just purchased the television, I would return it as soon as possible and purchase a more reliable and well known brand. ILO support services is almost non-existant and there are several comments on other blogs regarding the Ilo brand. I have two ILO 26" HD, which I purchased in Aug '06 and am now beginning to experience problems.
