    I was attempting to use the only wires I have coming out of the wall... composite cables. Wish there was an HDMI.

    Hey folks - I bought that adapter above, installed it and the menu for the DVD player plays beautifully. But when the dvd starts, the picture goes away and my TV is telling me there’s no signal. Any ideas?

    OK, that is really strange. If the menu comes to the screen it says you are set up on the correct input.
    The message is definitely a TV message.
    What happens if you change the Input to the DirecTV input and then go back to the DVD input ?

    If I switch what I’m viewing and then go back and forth between DTV and Dvd on TV? No effect. I also switched the connection, no effect.

    Here’s an update though: I did manage to find some DVD’s that would work- and some interesting things about some that wouldn’t.

    This kicking and screaming and Nemo
    movie won’t. I’ve attached the picture just to see if anyone knows anything about the format of the movie. This Simpsons movie does same thing (Its picture won’t show)- except for the menu of the DVD will. If you choose a part of the menu - it will play, picture won’t show.

    I’m stumped.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    When one of the movies plays, see what the TV says the resolution is and then do that with one that does not play.
    Also, try bypassing the adapter and put the GREEN cable into the YELLOW hole on the Composite connection and see if anything comes to the screen. Don't connect any other cables.

    Not sure how I can tell what the resolution of the picture is.
