Thread: HDTV Picture
03-27-2005 02:19 PM #1
I currently have a 811 receiver which is hooked up (DVI) to a RCA HDTV television. I have noticed that when I switch from 480p to 1080i the picture color fades in and out (light to dark). If I switch back to the 480p then the color does not fade in and out. Any solutions to fix this problem??

Keep in mind that the DVI port is labeled "DISH DVI". I was told by the installer that unless you connect the Dish DVI port to a "Dish supported monitor" it will not work properly. The only "Dish supported monitors" that I am aware of are the ones that Dish offered in their HDTV in a box promotions.

My 811 is hooked up to a Sony LCD HDTV and works fine at 1080i connected via an DVI to HDMI conversion cable. There are standards for these DVI input/outputs and just because they call it DISH DVI doesn't mean it is out of spec with the standard. Although, my experience with IEEE-1394 ( aka i-link, Firewire) has convinced me that digital connections can be a bit finicky.
As mentioned, make sure you are running at least P284 on the firmware.
If you don't have any problems with the component output picture, I would just go that way if you aren't using them for DVD or something.
Best of luck to you.
