I've had this issue ever since the dish has been set up and haven't been able to find a solution. I am trying to connect a VIP211k receiver to a DLP projector. The projector only has VGA and SVIDEO inputs so I'm using a Component to VGA cable from the receiver into a 50ft VGA extender cable to reach the projector. With the VIP 211k I get no signal, but when I try the exact same set up using the VIP722 receiver it works great. Also if I remove the 50ft extension cable and blug the component to VGA cable straight into the projecor it works with the VIP211k. So I'm thinking it has somehing to do with the 50ft extension and maybe the signal from the 211k is weaker than the 722? I tried also sending it through a VGA distribution amp but the amp doesn't even read an active signal coming through it. I've got an older AV receiever that doesn't take compoonent or HDMI so thats not an option at this point. I even ha tech from Dish come out an d look at it but they couldn't figure it out eiter. Tried a different 211k receiver and had the same results. Any other suggestions?
