Extron Crosspoint w/overhead projector and flat panel TV's

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am running an Extron Crosspoint with flatscreen tv's just perfectly with comcast component in (RGB) and component out (RGB) . Where I am running into an issue is 2 overhead projectors are refusing to play nice. Both are different brands and having the same non connectivity issue. The problem is not with the cable run as I tried a flat panel on both and it works perfectly. Suggestions?

What's the issue? You're runing component video through an RGBHV switcher?

If you have tried another device (flat panel) on the output end of the switcher that also included the cables, then your problem seems like the two projectors may not be setup for the component (what you are referring to as RGB) input that's coming from the switcher.

Are you sure you the projectors is not looking for RGBHV (five connection input)?

Also, that Extron Matrix switcher would have buffered outs, so it should do ever well with cables lengths, but that would also depend on the cable length to the projectors - what are your cable lengths to the projectors?

Like Drags says above. Component is not RGB, its YPbPr. So you need a Component to RGB transcoder in-between the DVD player and the Projectors.
