hooking up Oppo dvd to HD montor and getting Colored snow

Tue Nov 27, 2007 7:44 pm

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"?

Is your monitor HDCP compliant? What happens when you try to play the DVD at 480p?

If it happens at 480p I don't think it's an HDCP issue. It may be that your monitor just doesn't like the Oppo. :( Can you try another display and see if it works on that?

I guess it could, but I think it's unlikely. It's not like it's a long run or anything, and unless there's an obvious break in the cable somewhere we're just talking about 1s and 0s moving along a piece of flexible metal.

According to the specs it only does anything out over hdmi with hdcp.

And component out is limited to 480I/480P.

Thats the way I read it...
Digital Video: HDMI with HDCP (NTSC 480i/480p/720p/1080i, PAL 576i/576p/720p/1080i)
Component Video**: Y/Pb/Pr, NTSC 480i/480p/720p/1080i, PAL 576i/576p/720p/1080i. Component output for CSS-encrypted DVD discs (almost all commercially pressed DVD discs) is limited to 480i/480p only.
