I recently put in a home theatre.
We have a blu ray home theatre system DVD player with surround sound and we have it connected to a Screen Play projector.
My problem is the DvD player has HDMI mode.
So I try to hook up an xbox to the HDMi and play it, the screen says "This is HDMI mode. Pelase set your Tv to HDMI mode."
But I don't have a TV, I use a projector.
When I turn on the xbox we can hear the game playing, we just can't see anything because it is showing the HDMI mode message.
I am wondering if anybody knows how to resolve this problem.

NOTE: Our projector does not have an HDMi outlet.

What inputs does the projector have?
If it has a DVI input, you can get a HDMI to DVI cable, and it should work fine.
If not, and it has component inputs, you might need to use component connections, instead of HDMI.

Samsung HL61A750 (LED DLP)            Onkyo TX-SR805
Oppo BDP-83 Blu ray                                  Polk Audio LSi9
Polk Audio LSiC                                  Sony SS-MB100H
SVS PC12-NSD (Sub)                       ...
