skipcain - Post the TV model,so we can look up the manual & see what the TV is saying. When you say three component cables, do you mean just the video? Perhaps you have them in them wrong order. If you mean three all together - two for audio & one for video (yellow), it is not HD. Perhaps you have a setting in the TV looking for HD & not finding it.

Samsung model HLN4365W.  Three RGB component cables definitely connected correctly.  BTW I got the video signal via the single Video cable and also the S-video cable.  Unfortunately I need to use the  3 RGB cables with my Yamaha receiver.

skipcain - Please post the Yamaha model, as well. You get the same result connected direct STB to TV and STB-Yamaha-TV??

You'd have to hook it to another TV to do this, but have you set the Aspect Ratio setting to either 720p or 1080i?

skipcain - I think Jeffers suggestion is in area that could be a problem. Looking at the manual, the input label has three component connections - Number one is just 480, Number one is repeated then number two - these two support 480/720/1080.

Of course, you need to match the STB output aspect setting with the correct one on the input to the TV.

I believe, the trick is to view the menu on an SD connection to the TV so you can see the menu & set it to what you want. Then change inputs on the TV to view the result.

It is odd that the manual trouble shooting section does not include your error. i will keep looking to see if I can find it.

You might contact Samsung to ask them what it really means.

 

Here is the link to the manual - http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/200312/20031201161345812_BP68-00142A-03Eng.pdf

 

Page 80 has a chart of "modes" that are supported for computers & how to set it. This could be set incorrectly.

Yamaha AV receiver RX-V1300.  Yes - same results with all 3 outputs from cable box - directly to Samsung and cable box - Yamaha - Samsung.  Again  good picture on Samsung using Video and S-video;  "Mode not supported" using RGB cable (tried 2 different RGB cables).  Note that using RGB cable screen initialied flickered while cable box booted up - after boot complete went to "Mode not supported".

Fixed!  Problem was the manual that came with the Cisco ISB7005 has a different back panel plug configuration than the actual box.  The ATT installer insisted that he put the RGB cable pins in the right plugs, but he didn't.  Thanks to everyone for helping.

Re: Samsung DLP TV with 3 component cables - "Mode not supported"

Did you have to do something special w the Cisco box?  Ours doesn't work using component cables in matching position ie: blue Pb to Pb... We still get mode not supported. We had to use old fashion video to get tv to work. Manual says to be sure receiver is set to standard mode but nothing tells us how to do that.

2kimdwyer - Please post the model of the Samsung so I can look up the manual. In the meantime try setting the Cisco to widescreen SD - Menu- options- system options - screen resolution.

I had a Sony that was early component. I seem to remember the order of the jacks was different, but it sounds like you are looking at that. Also, it was 4:3 cathode ray & the widescreen display was letterbox.

What you may need to do is:

  1. temporarily connect it via composite or Coax to this TV (leaving the component in place).
  2. Switch the TV to the appropriate input.
  3. Go in to the STB's Aspect Ratio setting and set it to the TV's native resolution (720p or 1080p).
  4. Switch the TV back to the component input

Re: Samsung DLP TV with 3 component cables - "Mode not supported"

My problem was manual that came with Cisco ISB7005 had differnt back panel layout than actual box. Here's what worked for me: there are 3 component plugs - between Optical and S video on left - and Video Out on right. Blue cable to lower left plug, Red cable to lower right plug, Green cable to upper right plug.
