Hi, I've been having problems with this converter --

http://www.hdtvsupply.com/hdmi-to-rgb.html


-- trying to run 1080p to my Sanyo PLV-Z2000 over component. Basically, when I originally ran cables to my projector (through my ceilings and walls) I ran component instead of HDMI not thinking about the anti-piracy constraints that the movie studios would put in place. Now I'm trying to get 1080p w/o having to open up the ceiling and wall again.


When I hook up the converter, I get picture, but there is considerable flickering in scenes that feature both light and dark. I uploaded a video of the wedding scene from the Godfather to YouTube. The flickering is noticeable to the naked eye throughout the scene, but it's especially noticeable in the video in the portion of the scene where the Corleone family is posing for a picture. It's even more noticeable during the close up of Don Corleone.

I tried both my Sony BR player (Sony BDP-S360) and my PS3 and neither worked. I even bypassed the long cable run (45') and used 6' cables right at the projector. Same problem. The cables are RG6 if you're wondering.


The folks at HDTV Supply think that the component input on the projector can't handle 1080/24, but when I turned that option off on the BR player I still have the same problem. The converter works fine at 1080i.


Any suggestions?

Something wrong with the convertor, I know the Z2000 handles 1080p/24 very well over

component and hdmi. Best thing to do is bite the bullit and run a new hdmi cable, convertors

are never the long term answer or in your case a short term fix.

all right, thanks.


This is the second converter they sent and they said that the first one tested fine in their test bed, so I'm not sure what's going on.


I'm probably moving in a couple of years, so I'll probably just live with 1080i for the time being.
