Ah. I think I might have the same switcher as the guy in that thread who also loses video, and the bright white screen thing sounds like the same problem I'm having.

I'll have to do some research and get a higher-quality switcher.

Thanks for the link.

"With my nintendo wii, only in certain screens in menus and games, the projector will continually say "No Signal", once in awhile displaying the screen it's supposed to but only for a second or less and with the bottom half of the screen torn over to the right.

Why is my projector unable to properly accept input from these sources? It works perfectly with my DVD player and cable."



Did you ever fix this problem? I bought a wii this christmas and hooked up to my HC3000 via a denon reciever. works great with disk games but the online games show this "no signal" but I can hear the sound. Any ideas how to fix?

Why are you hooking it up to a reciver? For some reason people generally run through a reciever and I am not certian what the advantage is. Some do it so they can use a single remote to run the main video through one source, while others use a reciever to somehow help process the signal, while others use a reciever as a meeting point from source to screen. But the bottum line is a direct connection is always the best option. I have two 6.1 surround top range Yamaha recievers in my house with all the connection options most upper level recievers have and I connect several components that need sound. I never connect any video through a reciever. It simply forces video to endure one more process.

I hooked up home theater sound and video for numerous people. Any time there is noise in the image or other signal loss I found that runing direct always remedied the problem. No change of cables needed in each case. That right there showed me just how problematic runing video through a reciever can be. Even before I was aware of this I never ran video through a reciever. Never made sense to be what good benefit can come from it.

So I would start by runing direct. Can't say it will fix your issue but it is worth the try. Then if that isn't the cause move to trying new cables.

Kmart: No, I haven't solved the problem. I have yet to find a switcher that looks like it would be higher quality, or a receiver that has enough I/O that I could use it in place of one. I haven't tried connecting directly because, frankly, I'd rather put up with this problem than continually switch cables around.

Natja: I have a DVD player, an HD cable box, a PS2, an Xbox 360, and a Wii all hooked up to my projector through component video. Without a switcher or receiver, every time I wanted to switch between these sources I would have to disconnect and reconnect a bunch of wires in a giant tangle, assuming that I could connect things from the sometimes proprietary source cables through female-female adapters onto the cable hooked up to the projector and fix the problem that way. If that didn't solve it I would have to fool around with hooking things up directly to the back of the projector, way up on the wall near the ceiling. I just don't see how it's practical to directly connect all video to a projector, assuming this is my hobby and I want to have a net gain of fun. I also don't understand why there is no readily available solution to this problem aside from expensive and low quality A/V switchers and very expensive but still lacking in I/O options receivers.
