There is a rumor that DirecTV will be coming out with a composite 10pin DIN cable for the H25.
I'm feeding a 19" Samsung monitor via hdmi-->DVI with no problems at all. I'm using 720p resolution and I have encountered no issues on any channels, including HBO.
Huh? I thought the H25 already had composite output on the back, why would they need a 10Pin DIN cable to provide another composite output? Did you possibly mean 10Pin DIN to S-Video? Or maybe 10Pin Din to VGA?
There is a rumor of a 10pin DIN for composite/S-video, but you're right I seemed to have mixed up the need for it on the H25, with its need for the 10pin DIN for component.
Because your Samsung is HDCP compatible where my 9yr old Dell is not.
Yup ... you are correct. Never even gave composite a thought. That works fine!
It should work with this:
Nope. This one is out too.
His monitor doesn't have COMPONENT input.
I hate quoting myself but the adapter I linked above and the dongle I just linked would be fine.
You could also use http://www.amazon.com/DVI-Male-Fema...8&qid=1346293494&sr=8-2&keywords=dvi-d+to+rca
Oops, okay. So correct you are (now that I checked the monitor). Sorry about that.
Lets get to signals: what sort of source you have in mind here ?
HDMI output from DTV box ? Then no one of your ideas will works.
Obviously, since he said, and linked, that the proposed solution included the H25 dongle, the source is not HDMI, it is analog component.
Not saying it will work (not sure how you can put analog signals into a DVI connector), but it is clear what his source is.
Seems to me what is needed is component to VGA.
Madam, can we walk the whole mile ?
a) Source (H25) has two HD outputs: HDMI [Digital] and (by a dongle) Component [Analog, no separate sync].
b) Target (Dell monitor 2001FP) has inputs: VGA [Analog with separate sync lines] and DVI-D [Digital] and S-VHS and COMPOSITE.
How you see the working connection/path for HD signal ? Cables and adapters ?
Remember what was proposed ? Component to DVI Analog.
HDCP is only an issue on premium channels (and not all of them, Showtime is not copy flagged, Starz is... I imagine HBO/Cinemax is as well.)
Once again, you seek conflict where none is suggested. I am well aware of the outputs of a H25 - we have two of them in the house. You asked what source Shades had in mind, and I simply pointed out that he clearly stated that the component dongle was the source he was proposing.
I repeat...I make no representation that any particular solution will work. Were it me, I'd simply buy a refurbished 21" TV with a HDMI input and be done with it.
Monoprice qualifies how it may or MAY NOT work fairly well here: http://www.monoprice.com/products/p...=10235&cs_id=1023504&p_id=2508&seq=1&format=2
Now that the C31 has been announced, the 10pin DIN to composite may be more available "soon".
What will not work for the OP configuration. That's why I'm try to dismiss the variant.
It's not a conflict between us - it's non-working solution.
See that VOS's quote above : "This cable will not convert Y, Pr, Pb to RGBHV", ie Component output from HR25 to VGA on Dell monitor.
I was surprise by your support of that variant.
But if this was a H25-500, it might be outputting RGB like the HR24-500. :shrug:
I would bet no. See ? VGA connector need additional two signals: Vsync and Hsync (RGBHV).
If you will go back and bring DTC-100, then I would agree with you .
