    Hello, I recently received a Sanyo PLV-60HT that i am trying to hook up to my macbook pro. I bought a 5 RCA to HDMI (male) cable and tried to connect it through that cable as well as my mini DVI to HDMI (female). When i plug everything in and put it on the correct input, the projector does not seem to read anything. Could someone please help!? :huh: Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this or have any recommendations on a good quality hook-up method? Thank You in advance!! -Rich:)

    A. welcome to HTF! B. what Macbook pro? DVI or mini displayport? C. 5 rca to HDMI? wha????, why would you want to do that. You realize that's going from a digital to an analogue connection right? Not usually something you can just force a cable to do.

    Im sorry i wasn't very clear i was in a rush.. Here is the deal, I have a new macbook pro. I have a mini display port to HDMI (female) connector. I bought a cable off of amazon that had 5 RCA on one side and HDMI on the other.. (this is the cable: http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-HDMI-RCA-Cable-FT/dp/B005QWH4QA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330061119&sr=8-1) the only reason i did this was because i have a xbox that is plugged in with the xbox cable that has 5 RCA on one side and the xbox connection on the other. So i thought i would give it a try. I was not aware that the HDMI would not work when converted to the 5 RCA.... please help me. Im confused. I just need a way to connect my mac to the projector with the best quality possible. Thank you so much for your time and help! -Rich

    Yup, Cameron has you covered! The cabling might be as expensive as that PJ is now tho! I don't know what your budget is but it might be time to think about upgrading that guy to something with a true HDMI input. Even a used 720p PJ with HDMI would be a big step up. Like maybe what I had, the Panny AE900u, bet you can find them for under $500 these days. http://www.projectorcentral.com/sanyo_plv60.htm
