Does either the projector or the DVD player have a manual selection for "RGB/YUV" or "RGB/YPbPr"? If not you need a component video input RGB output transcoder (you can think of that as a breakout cable with a box in the middle).

Either the DVD player must be set to RGB or the projector must be set to Y-Pb-Pr component video in order for a plain cable to work.

rob: as noted, you can't use component input into this machine. You can use s-video/composite temporarily, but you really should be feeding it HD-type resolutions via RGB inputs. Note that RGB is *not* the same as component video. To use component video, you'd need a transcoder, but even then I strongly recommend you use a source appropriate for this projector, that outputs upscaled video, such as via a video processor or an HTPC.
