I bought a Runco DHD Vivix II with DVI IN/OUT and was going to use it to upconvert video signals from older sources to my Samsung 1080P flat panel. I know that the DHD only does 720P and I'm fine with that. The first concern with the DHD is that I keep seeing the front panel display show "check display" upon first powering up. I've read that I'm suppose to use either the S-Video or component input to 1st setup the DHD. I connected a S-Video source to the Svid 1 input. I've also selected the svid1 input, yet the DHD keeps showing "S Video 1 No Signal". I've connected the S-Video source to a less expensive upconverter and it will display on the flat panel using the inexpensive upconverter's HDMI output. The DHD has been connected to my flat panel with the following connections and always showed "check display" every time: DVI-D dual link to HDMI cable, DVI-D dual link to HDMI adaptor and HDMI cable, DVI-D single link to HDMI adaptor and HDMI cable. The flat panel never sees a signal from the DHD controller. Is this DHD controller unable to work with a Samsung HDMI flat panel even though both the DVI output and HDMI input are HDCP compliant?
