I own the InFocus SP5000, a 720p projector.  I also own the Sony PDP-300.  My Infocus has a M1 (some version of DVI).   I bought the HDMI to M1 DVI adaptor.  I plugged it in. My blu-ray player froze.  I couldn't do anything, not even turn it off.   It just stayed frozen in my setup menu.  I unplugged it, went back to the Components, and it worked fine.  I plugged the HDMI cable in again...it froze, again.  Has anyone else experienced this?

I've heard that adapters can be problems.
Have you tried an HDMI to M1 cable? See here: http://www.hdtvsuppl...tohdcathm1.html

Scroll down to the HDMI / M1 Cables section, for different lengths.

Possibly related is that current players and receivers will refuse to do any audio or video output over HDMI to a display device which does not support HDCP copy protection. Composite and component video and RCA and optical audio connections don't have that problem.
