How did you connect it to get no picture?


Lots of transcoder threads if you search. Short version: Pioneer like most DVD players will not upscale over component. So, with this DVD player, your only option for upscaled content is a DVI to VGA transcoder and an HDMI to DVI cable. Since you are in Spain, it would be easiest to get the one Spatz sells out of Germany (same as dtrovision DC-DA1).


Other options are an outboard scaler such as a Lumagen and DVDO and run 480i to it and let it scale and send out the RGB or a DVD player that does scale over component with a component to RGB transcoder.


Of course, you can do the HTPC route with your PC also.
