HDMI on any CRT TV with component inputs - Page 3

post #61 of 74
That's what I did as soon as the hdmi connection failed (and w/two diff. cables). On composite I was able to access most all settings...except HDMI!! It's stuck on Auto. Been all over the Panny 210 threads to no avail. Is this hdcp prob?

Seems like nec is probably pointing you in the right direction. You didn't say if your display couldn't handle 1080p, but since the converter can, and the player is set on auto, it's probably using 1080p. I'd first try taking the player to another HDMI TV (if you don't have one, surely your neighbor does), and manually forcing the HDMI setup to 1080i.

Thx, that was my next thought. Was hoping for some kind of manual override codes into the panny.

and yes, the crt can handle 1080i

Hello Oryan,

What is the part number for the connector you have used to plug into CN9300? Where did you get this connector? Thanks.

I purchased a Sony P board from Ebay, get it to convert HDMI into component, it works except like Oryan's - the video shift to the left a little. Does anyone might have idea how to adjust the video to the center?

If you're referring to the connector that I used to break out the leads to the RCA jacks and power jacks, the board I bought off of ebay came with the cable. It's the cable that'd connect the board the main board in the original TV.

I never did figure out how to shift it to the proper location, and hence never use this. I now use and HDFury2. I suspect that the main processor in the TV would have configured the chip via I2C, but it'd be hard to mimic the commands, if you knew what they were. The datasheet is only given out under NDA for the Silicon Image chip. I guess the other thing you could do, if you had an I2C packet sniffer and the original set, just monitor the I2C lines on startup. But, then you'd still need some way to generate and send them.

Here's one on ebay that comes with the metal housing and the jumper cable

Appreciated your feedback, Oryan. Thanks.

Hello neccrttv,
UD board does not have any HDMI input. Are you using a HDMI to DVI converter? HDMI to DVI converter does not have audio output. How do you get audio output using UD board? My media box have HDMI output and composite video/audio, I can only get either output but not both at the same time. I prefer to use HDMI output because of better quality on video. Using Sony P board as Oryan did, I got both component RGB and R/L audio from HDMI input, but the video is shifted to the left. Thanks.

You could get something like this
http://www.amazon.com/ViewHD-Analog-Converter-Digital-Extractor/dp/B008LOIKX6

It takes HDMI in, and give HDMI out, but then has a 3.5mm stereo audio output. On the end with HDMI out, use an HDMI->DVI converter for video, and a 3.5mm to stereo RCA audio. You'd end up with DVI and analog audio, which you could feed to the UD board.


The other option is to use a receiver that has HDMI In/Out for the audio, then use an HDMI->DVI cable on the output of the receiver to the TV.

I was looking for exactly this. i have a Pioneer Elite PRo-570HD with only component (1080i). Thank you so much for posting this. btw, would this following card work the same way as the one you used? Sony KP-46WT500 UD Board A-1300-324-A 1-684-622-13 1-721-153-1

thx much for your response.

You have a HDMI, DVI on any TV that has component inputs and can multisync. I'll be adding a HDMI input on my NEC XP37+ soon!

My board is the Sony UD Board on a DA4 chassis CRT HDTV.

i just want to clarify....my precious post was about the original post by neccrttv...thx

Thread Starter 
Been a long time since i was on this forum. I still use these converters and they work great.

Yes, the UD board from the RA6 chassis is EXACTLY the same pinout wise as the UD board from the DA4 chassis. (Checked the Service Manuals Schematics)

Though, like described in following posts, you will need a buffer to boost the component cable signal level with a buffer like the ST TSH343 like i use in mine.

Here is the manual of the TSH343
http://www.st.com/web/en/resource/technical/document/datasheet/CD00079537.pdf

Since it's been a while i have forgot how i connected the resistors to that chip. I will post back soon with complete wiring diagram of buffer.

To answer your question directly : Yes it will work, but image will be dark. Advantages of this UD board is that there is no left shift.

These converters work connected to HDMI/DVI outputs of a PC too (need to set it to 1920x1080i (30hz) or 1366x768 (1280x720 may work).
post #73 of 74
Perfect! Thank you. Yes, I read your earlier posts on TSH343 and will get it. Couldn't find it online so far. searching.

So I need an additional 5V supply for the buffer, besides the 9V for the UD board. right?

and I am assuming that the darkness can be managed with some brightness/comtrast comtrols and not a big deal.
post #74 of 74
neccrtv, The UD board just arrived. Looks like I misunderstood that it takes HDMI in:( Did I? How do you take an HDMI out from a source (say Roku or AppleTV) and feed the board? HDMI-to-DVI converter first? Thx for your response. Also pls advise if you know of any good sources for TSH343. thx much!
