I just recieved my Denon 1910. I have it hooked up directly to my Hitachi 57F510 Rear projection TV through a pacific cable DVI-HDMI 6" cable. On 480p, I get a picuture but there is black, green and red snow all over the screen. On 720p, the player and TV don't even sync up to produce an image. On 1080i they sync up but there is only snow and no picture. It seems like it is the HDCP kicking in. The TV is NTSC so is the player, can anyone help me figure out a fix to this?

Yes, that sounds like exactly just like HDCP unfortunately.

It is the HDCP that are having problems syncing up. I had the same problem when I placed a DVI switcher between the Pioneer DVD hdmi out and the yamaha projector hdmi in. Now when you place a HDMI switcher in between the player and projector there isn't a problem. Gefen said is has to do with the fact that DVI and HDMI do not "configure" HDCP the same way. I'm just throwing this out as food for thought.

I don't think the switcher will fix your problem. I think it's a problem either with HDCP signal the conversion from DVI to HDMI. I know this shouldn't be the case...but I think HDCP signals and compatability is so new that we are just now finding out the quirks that take place between the source and the monitors.

DefBringer,

What you are trying to do should work fine. Double-check your connections and check that in particular the HDMI plug is fully seated in the socket. The weight of the cable may have pulled it partially loose. Pull out the HDMI end, put it back in and hold it in by hand to see if you get a proper signal.


[EDITED TO ADD: Note, it may take a few seconds for the handshake to establish the connection and for an image to appear -- usually under 2 seconds On some devices the initial connection can take 10 or 12 seconds. So, just as a test, hold the HDMI plug in at the TV jack for a full 15 seconds while leaving the DVI setting on the player unchanged.]


On your TV, "Input 1" is both a Component input (one of two) and the sole HDMI input. Make sure you haven't attached any Component cables to that input while you are actually trying to use the HDMI portion of it. In particular, since you are connecting from a DVI device and thus have to make a separate audio connection, make sure you haven't run audio cables from your DVI device and mistakenly plugged them into the Component connections of Input 1 instead of into its audio connections.


Make sure you have gone into the proper menu and manually selected the HDMI input (Input 1) on your TV. If you have an alternate video connection also connected from the player, such as S-video, and if you have selected that by accident on your TV, you will probably find it doesn't work when you have turned on the DVI output on the player.


You may have a faulty DVI to HDMI cable. Try a different cable.


If none of that resolves the problem, it sounds like you have either a faulty DVI output on your player or a faulty HDMI input on your TV. The easiest way to check is to (1) bring the player back to the store with your cable and try it on an HDMI-equipped TV there, and (2) get a different player and bring it home to try with your TV.

I made sure to take the component cables out of the input 1 slot, but that didn't make any difference.

I had my roomate hold the HDMI cable in and it cleared up the fuzz a tiny bit in 480p, and made 720p actually sync up though there was 10x more fuzz on that, 1080i was still totally snowed out.

So i guess i am gonna try a different cable. and if that doesn't work I'll send it back and wait for a HDMI dvd player.

I connected a 1910 to my Sam hlp 6163 with a DVI --> HDMI cable and got a snowy static superimposed over the picture. Then I got a DVI-HDMI adapter ($35), put this on the 1910 and used a HDMI-HDMI cable, and everything worked perfectly! (But I have now returned the 1910 for a 2910 because of a slight green tint in the 1910 picture, and am quite happy.)

sounds like a bad cable.
