    I bought a M1 to DVI-D cable off ebay so i could connect my infocus sp 5000 to my comcast cable box (motorola DCT-6208), but it's not working.

    Has anyone got this to work? Maybe i should have got the OEM cable from infocus instead of the one i got on ebay. I'll see thei picture very briefly and then it will cut out.

    Everything is fine using component or RGB to component.

    Any suggestions? thanks

    Check in the menu that under your source options that 'computer' is ticked as being active. also check in your cable box menu that it is set up to output via DVI and play around with the various options ( interlaced, progressive, RGB, component, computer etc. etc.) then just keep selecting 'auto image' on the infocus and it should eventually lock onto the correct signal.

    thanks for the suggestions, but to no avail.

    Dvi works fine when connected to my PC, so i'm sure its not the projector. I checked on the comcast box that dvi is enabled, and i tried changing between 720p and 1080i, no luck. There really arent a lot of options on the comcast side. I can get a brief picture sometimes, but it doesnt last.

    It must be something with HDCP. For now i guess i'll just use the DVI to watch dvds on my HTPC, and use component for the HDTV cable

    Thanks
