Xbox 360 with HDMI out.
HDMI cable from Blue Jeans cable.
I can never get 1080p out of my xbox no matter what settings I choose on both the xbox itself and the projector itself.The picture is there but there are these green dots all over the screen, so I go back to 720p
I can sometimes get 1080p out of my Bluray player depending on the Bluray material. but it starts out with green dots then the movie kicks in and the picture clears up and is perfect.
Now I just got a brand new David Gilmour Bluray and it always has green dots, unless I set my Bluray player to 1080i
Have tried NOT using my receiver as a switching device and using the HDMI cable direct to the component and it still does this.
This is really weird, cause the newer Rush Documentary Bluray starts out with the green dots, but then it kicks in and is fine, so it seems to me its not the projector, cable, or receiver.
Perhaps I need to update or rather buy newer models of Bluray player and Xbox? as they were probably new back when HDMI first came out.
I tried searching the internet for people with similar issues but have yet to see any.Any help would be appreciated.And as I said earlier have tried switching all the settings on DVD player, xbox and Projector at the same time and nothing clears it up.
Your HDMI cable is a high quality cable with Blue Jeans cable. But, I really can't tell if you're exceeding any spec without knowing the length and knowing whether it is a High Speed cable. It also could be cable damage (including tight bend radius in the cable) or a manufacturing defect.
But, try this...Go back to 1080p and in your Blu Ray player menu and your Projector menu, disable Deep Color. Deep Color adds color bits per pel (pixel element). The extra bits aren't on the disc but are added by the player. So, you aren't losing any information and your projector will likely do just as good of a job of color decoding as your player. What disabling Deep Color does is to cut out those extra bits and reduce the bandwidth requirements for the signal. Basically it's less bits in the pipe and that may bypass your problem.
However, when you want to go to a higher bandwidth again (say something like 4K), then the problem will likely reappear. But, at least disabling Deep Color may give you a short term "solution". Also remember to disable in both the player and the projector so that there isn't any handshaking that occurs concerning Deep Color. If that works you can also try it with the Xbox.Edited by alk3997 - 6/4/13 at 5:55am
