I can not get my ProScan PSHD-105 (same thing as the RCA DTC-100) to display HDTV on my TV. It works fine with my Sony XBR, but will not even display the menu on my new TV (see equipment below). It works with S-Video but not with Component thru my transcoder (which DID work on the XBR). Any idea why?
TELEVISION: JVC 48" widescreen HDTV model # AV-48WP30
HDTV SATELLITE RECEIVER: ProScan PSHD-105
DirecTV and OTA HDTV receiver with current software
(Same as the RCA DTC-100 but with a grey coverplate).
I'll ask the obvious question that you probably don't need to hear:
Are you sure that the PSHD-105 was in the 'HD ON' mode?
More than once I have confused myself on which mode I was in because my DTC-100 is out of sight in an equipment cabinet. I finally programmed discrete codes into my universal remote so I know for sure by which button I pushed.

Have you tried to change the settings for the transcoder? Under the menu click 7 then 8 then 2. Try to change to one of the other settings. (you will have to use the svhs to view the menu first, then be sure to switch back to HD)
Also the TV may have a setting that defines what the input is for HD... Like componant for DVD or HD. You may have to tell it what you are gonna do with it. If you have a dvd player with componant out try hooking it up to the same componant input you had the sat reciever hooked up to.
If it doesnt show the dvd then there may be a issue with that input.
Of course it may only accept HDTV content through the DVI input.
Problem solved ... I didn't turn the surge protector on!!! The TV and Tuner both were on because they were plugged into the un-switched outlets, but the Transcoder was off because it was plugged into a switched outlet. Things work fine now, although there is sometimes some flicker on the HD channels. Thanks for the input. I guess "PEBTAC" was the issue (Problem Exists Between Television And Couch).
