Optoma GT750 Input Searching with PS3

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering if it is possible to disable the Optoma 750 from constantly searching for input. Each time I put in a game, movie, or start an app like Hulu or Crunchyroll on my PS3, the Optoma searches for a HDMI signal for like 5 seconds. When playing a movie, this can happen a few times, such as when switching between the previews and also the main movie menu.

I disabled all of the inputs on the setup, so that only the HDMI input is enabled, yet this hasn't solved the issue.

Also, and this has happened probably a couple times in the past week, when I put in a 3D movie, the projector just displays a black screen. My default (no input) screen is blue, so the black screen indicates that the projector is receiving input, yet nothing appears on the screen. If I turn off the projector and turn it back on, it re-syncs the HDMI and the image appears, so it is most likely a projector issue. Is this something that others are experiencing (and a known issue) or is my projector is messed up?

Thanks

i believe this is an issue with the ps3. I get this same switching on my ps3 when switching from games, movies, and other video sources like Netflix or youtube.

I haven't seen it within a movie though (previews etc.)

i just reread your post, and it sounds like when the ps3 is switching modes, which is normal (like mine), your projector is going into an auto input mode. You said you had already turned off several of the inputs, i wonder if there is also a setting for auto input?

When I get home, I'll see if its possible to force the PS3 to always output in 720p. Maybe if there's a setting like that, it can prevent the signal interruption. Thanks.

You have several tests to do. Connect the ps3 to all ports to see if a certain port is not working. Try a different cable to see if that's the problem. Attach something else other than the PS3 to make sure that it is not defective.

Searching through the web, many people are using this setup. Must be something in the setup either on the optoma or the ps3 that in conflict. Are you using 720p/60 on the Optoma?
post #12 of 34
In optoma ? I dont know you can change resolution in optroma?you mean 720 in ps3?
post #13 of 34
Try it on the PS3. I may have to set up my Optoma and steal my son's ps3 to test this out.
post #14 of 34
Here's the update. Setup my tripod projector screen, positioned my optoma then attached the ps3. Turned it on and put in my Avatar 3D blu-ray disk. I didn't touch the settings on either machine. The optoma found the ps3. Started up the movie, put on my glasses and I currently have it playing in 3d just fine. It noted that the Optoma recognized the source as 1080p/60.

Then i guess than my optoma has problems, if i connect ps3 to 720 ,or i 1080i it gets connected but if i make it 1080p than no conection my pj goes blank.unbelievable.its brand new drives me crazy.im calling optoma tomorow its just dont really wanna shio to them so they can fix it....

Anyway i appreciate you helping man, its good to see somebody still visits this thred
post #17 of 34
If you already exchanged the optoma once, it seems something else is awry. Are you using a high speed hdmi cable? Can you reset the PS3 to it's default settings? What PS3 are you using? The PS3 I was using is a new model purchased in December. I can't verify what resolution it was set for since I've never used it before.

Does it accept 2D 1080P signals?

Do you have your PS3 going through a receiver or anything else between it and projector?
post #19 of 34

Can you play a 3d movie with your Sony 3d blu-ray player connected to the Optoma? If so, the projector is not at fault, it's the older ps3 fat model you have.
post #23 of 34
Yes i can play 3d on bluray also in directv but not on ps3....

I've heard folks mention some kind of signal booster or amplifier on a long hdmi run.
