Problems detecting a signal on projector


Standard Member

I have a Sanyo PLV-Z5 projector connected to my Windows Media Centre PC using a 10m DVI cable with a HDMI converter at one end (as the Z5 doesn't have DVI connector).

My media centre PC is always on and I've switched off screen savers and power saver modes on the PC. The problem is that when I switch the projector on (from standby), in most cases, the PC signal is not detected. I know it's on because I can hear the TV sound from the amplifier. Changing channel on the media centre can sometimes cause the signal to be detected but not very often at all.

This problem is driving me mad so any help/advice would be gratefully appreciated.
