Hello, new to this and projectors, but I love my optima dv10, good for me just starting out. Well I would like to run my blu-ray through it but getting frustrated, player has hdmi out and a usb on front, how do I run it or can it be done. I've gotten a hdmi signal change 2 vga into dv10 projector, it played but was green.. then tried same hdmi to s video.. no signal, then rca, same thing... Please help I understand I still only can get so much out of it but would like to give the onboard dvd player a break... Thanks very much.. ps tried optoma, they said I can't , but there's got to be a way..i

No, you can't do it with HDMI.

HDMI is a 100% digital signal. There is no such thing as a HDMI to S-Video cable. It doesn't converter the HDMI to analog video, which is what you would need.

An older Blu-ray Disc player, like the Panasonic DMP-BDT100 had a component video (red/green/blue) connector on the back which could hook up to your projector on the cmoponent video input.

But, you aren't going to buy a new Blu-ray Disc player with anything other than a HDMI connection, and perhaps composite (yellow) video.

As a rule, you basically must have a projector with a HDMI input on it to expect to be able to get good results these days.

What make/model Blu-ray Disc player do you have? Does it have component video outputs?

Also worth saying - From what I understand if a player DOES have component video outputs, those outputs may be disabled for some content this year.

Thanks, I should have said I got a new cord that I connected to the cord I bought to go hdmi signal converter to vga, and when that didn't work I just tried to add on to same cord.. hdmi signal con.to vga, but ran from that.. vga/s video . (Hdmi/vga-vga/s vid-projector) .. but your right, player only has hdmi, usb on front, LG MDL.bp125, my dv10 has usb, can I use that, the player is all I have and would like to use it, my dvd player on the optoma, is not very good. Dvd has to be perfect to play.. thanks again.

This would theoretically do it. By transcoding from digital to analog:

Never used one so can't comment on how well it works

But if I understand correctly, you did somehow get a green image, so you must be using a digital to analog converter already.

If so, that is likely just a setting problem. Look in the projector menus at the colorspace. Somewhere there will be an option for RGB or YUV. Whatever it is on, change it and see if that fixes the problem.

Hmmm... Yep, that's realistically what should be used.
