component to hdmi convert support 3d?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
hi guys

so i bought a house basement came with component hookups for projector. I thought lets have a home theater, i went out and got a bose speaker system with pioneer receiver and epson 3020 3d projector

at first i couldn't connect the 2 cuz receiver does not output component only hdmi. so from amazon i got a convert to convert hdmi in to component out... everything is hooked up and working amazingly.

one problem i cant watch 3d my projector is 3d. I was thinking if i place a 2nd box which will convert the component going to the projector to an hdmi 1,4 with 3d support will my 3d work?

anyone can help me...

i cannot rip the roof and walls to put in an HDMI

(please use dummy proof language im an idiot when it comes to electronics)


please help

much appretiated

You cannot run 3D over component video. Simply won't work.

So you have component video cables run to the projector? Anything else run to the projector?

there is an s video cable but there is no s video input in the projector

if i was to convert the component back to hdmi using a converter on the projector end would i not get 3d or because theres component cables in the middle it wouldn't work...

something like this

No, the ONLY way to get 3D support will be with a direct HDMI link. Period.

There are HDMI-over--cat5e and HDMI-over-coax devices (baluns / extenders) - since you have component video, you might have a decent-enough coax cable to use - but I'm not aware of any of the coax-based devices that support 3D, either.

It can be done with an HDBaseT repeater over a single cat5e.

The S-Video cable is useless - by chance can you pull on it and perhaps use it to bring a cat5e cable through? You say you "can't" open the wall/ceiling to run a new wire - why not? I understand not wanting to...

The other option is a wireless HDMI setup - you will need to do some research to see if these work as advertised. The IOGear unit is 3D-capable:

I'm with jautor. Maybe the S-Video cable can be a pull string for you smile.gif

i already thought about that when i pull on the s video hes got it screw in and secured with cable hooks cuz it stops immediately and doesnt pull i have almost snapped the s video trying to put it so ya cant be a pull wire...

cant do fishing cuz my wife would kill me lol...

and after the money and time ive already spent on this she already thinks im crazy

and that link that u sent for wireless hdmi that sounds perfect... if that can be done it will save me a huge headache id love that.

now just gotta confirm that it works but reading up on it sounds like it would.... its only 200$ might aswell give it a try...

thx a lot for ur help....

You know for around the $200 range you could repair a few cuts made in the drywall and run an HDMI cable. Then there are no worries about the wireless. Making a few cuts in drywall and repair is not that hard and can be all done in a day, start to finish.

Exactly, and while he's there, run a few cat6 cables to take care of whatever comes after HDMI. And we know it will work...

I'm looking at this same problem with my own home theater I thought I future-proofed when I had the room built in 2002 with all the relevant cables going from the wall on the end of the room with the components up to and across the ceiling and to the place on the opposite wall where my ceiling-mounted Sanyo PLV-HT60 would hang. Now it is 2014 and the Sanyo has been left unused for a while due to an irritating misalignment in the red and green of the picture that I wasn't able to fix using the service menu, and I have just bought a new BenQ W1070 1080P 3D Home Theater Projector to replace it. However, the cables that were installed are: component, composite, VGA and BNC, to match what the Sanyo had at the time, needless to say there is NO HDMI.

I ordered a 25' HDMI cable, but don't relish the thought of trying to cut open the wall and ceiling (and I can't remember with way the studs and beams go, but they probably had to drill holes in them to get the wires through) to snake the new cable in. I may look at wireless HDMI or just hiding the external cable along the corners as much as I can (25' may not be enough for that option though.)
