OK I'm sure this has come up on some of the other mile-long RS1 threads but I could spend the rest of my life looking for it.
This projector is maybe 8 months old. I have used component input exactly twice. The first time, switching between inputs on the remote made it (the problem described below) go away. Stupidly, I figured that would suffice.
Tonight, I'm watching Pats/Giants, inputting HD tuner through component. This time, no matter what, no dice. Problem is that there is no red and ton of green. No amount of tweaking gets a reasonably balanced picture. Tried everything. There's just almost no red, so if you back the others way down, the picture goes very dark. Plus the color level setting needed is way different than on HDMI.
I recall that there is a firmware fix for this component problem but the last time I looked, someone had gotten it and posted it on a download site that was full of porn and probably viruses too. So I didn't download it.
Do we now have an "official" fix for this problem? If so, where does one go to get it along with detailed directions for the upgrade-challenged on how to install it?
HDMI inputs work fine. I guess I could always get an adapter and bypass the component altogether but I'd prefer to have it work properly.
My HT is an oldie but goodie!
