    I can't comment on the Sharp, but I have the Denon going into a Philips via DVI. Have you tried all the options on the Denon's DVI button (on the front panel)? Page 15 of the Denon manual under DVi setup.

    What make of DVI cable have you got? How long is it? and how much did it cost?

    That should be fine. I'm kind of wondering where all the Sharp experts are tonight! Although it is unclear exactly what is causing the problem. Off the top of my head a "red picture" may be a component connection problem, but that shouldn't apply here.

    I've had a quick look at the Sharp manual online - it's not something odd like the PC input colour settings? Page 25 of the Sharp manual (maybe the red is cranked up!). I admit this is a stab in the dark, but in the absence of any Sharp buffs, worth checking the setting!

    Another thought, "signal type" page 37 of the Sharp manual. Is the DVI (Input 4) expecting the wrong input? - again worth checking this setting.

    Out of range indicates the TV is receiving a signal it doesn't understand. Worth re-checking that the DVI input is set for the right source.

    The Sharp takes both digital and analog (VGA) inputs via the same physical connector. You can flip between two signal types by selecting 'PC Digital' or 'PC Analog' modes on the options/input select menu.

    If the picture looks red it could be a connection problem with the green signal - eg. due to a dodgey cable.

    Perhaps you could test your cable on a known good system - like your PC.

    Keep experimenting - my Sharp works fine with both DVI and VGA inputs :thumbsup:

    Good luck.
