Directvnow beta streaming box


Directvnow beta streaming box

I have a problem. When I hook up my new box to the projector with HDMI it doesn’t display any video. Audio through the reciever works, but no video. Does this box require something special?

Check that the output of the box is a video format your projector can deal with. Too high a resolution and you will see nothing.

Is there a way to force this box to 1080p or 720p?

Re: Directvnow beta streaming box

Everytime I turn the projector on or off, it resets to a display that something cannot handle.... i had the harmony learn the following commands in order:

Home button
5 right
3 Down
2 right
4 down


LOL it works but the fact that it autosenses the "correct" resolution is a bit annoying.  as the "correct" res, doesnt work for me.  Other than that i love this device.... i missed channel numbers sooooooo much!
