Question New IPTV box to older projector connection problem.


Novice Member
Hi, so I'm having a problem getting an image when I connected a new set top box (only has hdmi output) to my older Panasonic projector (has vga input, can handle 720p, 1080i).

I've been using my ps3 for years now (with component out to vga cable). So I bought an hdmi to component converter box. When I set the tv box to 1080i, 720p or even 480p, all I get is these faint green horizontal lines.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, buying another projector is not an option.

Any help is appreciated.

Converter - confirm it works with 50Hz Sources many low cost designs only work with 60Hz Sources.
