I am in the process of hooking up my new Zenith receiver and I seem to be running into a snag. I haven't hooked up the dish yet, only the OTA signal. I have a strong signal on all the digital channels. Unfortunately, when I switch to 1080i on the Zenith, I lose the video. Any solutions?


Thanks,


Mike

What output are you using on the Zenith? The 1080i will only work on the component or RGB outputs. Does your TV accept 1080? Panasonics don't.

I have the component cables connected out of the Zenith. I've tried other cables and it still didn't work.

The Zenith does not output 480i through the component outputs at all, so if you are seeing video on that setting it is via the S-Video or Composite output. Check your cabling, and make sure that the TV input settings are really set to the component input and not the S-Video, RF or composite.

If you're not seeing anything through the component cables, you might have the component/RGB switch set to RGB. But it does sound like you're only using the composite video and not the Y-Pb-Pr outputs.

Thanks so much for all your help. I had the green and blue component cables reversed. Today I'll complete the wiring of the dish and aligning all three satellite. Wish me luck. :rolleyes:


Thanks again.
