Here's the problem...I have a Sharp XG-v10wu projector I found cheap. I'm trying to hook it up to my new RCA surround sound/dvd/blue ray player. It only has an hdmi out. So, the projector senses the incoming signal (although 720 is the highest it finds) but wont display the image...what am I missing? I can't imagine a $20k projector being this hard to hook up!

Are you trying this with a standard DVD or with a Blu-Ray disc? If the projector is not HDCP compliant (and given it's age, it may not be), a Blu-Ray disc may not display an image.

Also, what model RCA home theater system did you purchase?

It's an RCA rtb10223. Yes, I saw that...tried both types of dvi cable...3x3 and 24pin...no go. If it isn't hdcp, any other ideas?

Yes, already tried bnc-rca adapters and that isn't workable either as the player only has yellow, white, red rca outs...not composite.
