Has anyone used the Samsung DirecTV HDTV receiver (SIR-TS160) with their Panasonic L300u? if so did you get it to work over the DVI port even though the pany doesn't do HDCP. The samsung owner's manual implies that while HDCP DVI is better that it will display to a "display device" that doesn't have HDCP. Furthermore I called Samsung in New Jersey and they say that it should work.


However when I tried it with the cable supplied with the Samsung, I couldn't get a picture to come up. I then switched over to the component input and there was a message on the screen that says " your display device doesn't support HDCP and cannot display..."


If anyone has any ideas on this or knows it will/won't work please let me know


Thanks

I'm hoping that someone out there has this same setup. The samsung TS160 to my Pany l300u looks fine with component inputs but I only have 2 connections that pass through my Denon 3803 for component. So with a DVD player, Xbox and the Samsung I am short a component port. I know I could go with a switch box, but using the DVI port on the Samsung to the Pany seems like a cleaner solution.


Please if anyone is running this config or knows of someone who is, I'd appreciate hearing about your experiences.


This is the one area that makes me with I waited for the HS10 :)


Thanks

Have you thought about using the 15 pin RGB connector.

I'm not sure if I have a component that can use that connector? I know that the XBox and DVD player I currently have don't have an RGB interface of the BNC type or 15pin type. I didn't think that the Samsung did either, but if it does then that would be a good option.


Or are you saying that I can go component out from one of my devices and then convert it to 15pin RGB with a dongle at the PJ end of things? this could work as well, so then I would have 2 component runs of about 20 feet rather than a DVI run and a component.


Thanks for the idea
