What happens when you try to play the DVD at 480p?i'm trying to hook up a Oppo DV-970HD upconverting dvd player with a hdmi port to a HANNSG JW199D montor with a dvi port to try to get some HD action going. i connect it together with a phillips hdmi to dvi cable i got at walmart. when i which the dvd player to 720p at 60hz i get picture for a second then colored snow. i can't figure out why that is? i don't want to spend money on another cable. anyone ever encountered "colored snow"?
