I know there may be other threads on this but I really need help on hooking one up to Toshiba 65h82. I got the new eliptical dish with 3 lnb installed by directv and I am having all kinds of trouble hooking up my receiver. The directv guy was no help, and he actually told me that I didnt need the vga to component adapter. The instructions for hookup are different from Toshiba and for rca. I dont know which one to follow. If anyone can help or post a link to help I would really appreciate it. I am beginning to think this is not worth it. Oh yeah the directv said that the receiver was bad but I cant believe anything he says after the vga comment. Please help.

For HDTV, the 65H82 only has component video input.


For HDTV, the DTC-100 only has RGBHV output.


To use these together for HDTV, you will need the RGBHV to component video transcoder. RCA makes one that goes for $130 list price, I've seen them on eBay for $50.


You can always not use a transcoder and just watch analog TV (S-Video, composite video, RF) but after making the HDTV & STB investment, that doesn't make any sense.
