Jvc g15u and harmony 300 remote

I bought a g15 with no remote. Bought a harmony 300 universal remote as suggested on this forum. I am still waiting for a cable (RCA to bnc) to hook up an Xbox one or comcast x1 cable box to the projector. Can anyone give me some info on how to proceed once I get the cable ? Especially with the remote.I have some experience with crts and I had a g10 11 years ago but I have forgotten almost everything I'm afraid. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also does anyone know Is the dilard software still available for these ? Thanks.

I'm not sure what led you to this projector other than to just try it out and I'm hoping the price you paid was next to nothing. As a 14 year old design in a world that has seen unbelievable advancements over the last decade in high definition, this one has just fallen way behind in the technology.

The projector has a component video input which accepts 720p and 1080i HD signals:

The XBox One does not support any legacy video connections. HDMI only, so you aren't connecting it to that projector.

The Comcast X1 cable box needs to look something like this on the back, and you should connect it via component video cables:


I'm not sure how you ended up with that antique, but you are going to have some serious limitations from it and need to decide how much money you want to pump into something that is so out of date.

You could use a HDMI-to-Component Video converter box, such the one at the following link:

You would then use RCA to BNC cables to connect from the converter box's output to your projector's component video input (which requires BNC).


As for your Harmony 300 remote you will need to first install the MyHarmony software (see the info provided with your new remote) on your internet connected PC then install the control codes for your projector model, if the Logitech Harmony data base includes your JVC projector model. You can download the MyHarmony software from the following web site:

Thanks for the info. I have had some hi end crts , ehome 9500 and I bought a g10 for 1900 with a stuck pixel back in 2003 so buying this g15 for 60 dollars wasn't a hard decision. You are right about the Xbox one though. My xfinity x1 boxes all have component out and can be set to output 720p. This projectors primary function we'll be as an indoor golf simulator and for my son to play video games on. Now I need to find a screen that can take a golf ball at 180mph without leaving a mark. Has anyone done this? I'm going to use the optishot golf simulator and build a PC. Thanks again.

There are discussions elsewhere about golf sims. The above recommendation for the HDMI to component video converter is a good one.

I would not get a component with RCA to BNC cable, I would get BNC to RCA adapters and put them on the projector's BNC connections instead. They are cheap and allow you to swap to different cables as necessary.

About a buck each, and you only need a few of them.

I think most people use a PVC screen. Just a white durable material.

Have fun with it, and if you ever want to get a serious projector again, then there are some great options out there. Closer to $3,000 on that front, but really nice and no convergence issues to deal with like on the ElectroHome projectors. I couldn't believe it when I swapped my M8000 for a digital projector for the first time. Never going back to CRT.
