Hi - New to the forums.
I recently acquired an Optoma EP739 (http://www.projectorcentral.com/Optoma-EzPro_739.htm
Obviously the projector is old, but I am using it to make my first venture into home projector use.
I have no trouble using it with my laptops with either VGA or HDMI to DVI-D cables. I have also been able to connect to my Dish Network receiver using HDMI to DVI-D cable with no issues.
However, when I connect to my DVD/BluRay player and attempt to project a DVD with the same HDMI to DVI-D cable the signal does not come through. The source is identified and it states the resolution is 1920x1080 but I think it says signal loss or something like that and it basically projects static/snow.
As I know the projector can only handle up to 1024x768 I tried switching the resolution of the BluRay player from 480i/p to 720i/p to 1080i but had no luck.
Any ideas or input (other than get a new projector!) would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
