Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello, I need to know more about the converter- since they're not all the same. Does it convert to Red,White and Yellow RCA, or to Red,Blue,Green,Red and White RCA?
Also, have you tried setting the resolution of your computer to it's LOWEST setting to see if the TV then shows a stable image?
Thanks for the reply. This TV requires a Vertical Sync Pulse- since it is a Deflection TV- and the converter you have was likely designed to be used with LCD or Plasma sets- that is where the problem is coming from. The HDMI converter is not adding the Vertical Sync Pulse to the signal, so your image rolls.
Offhand, do you have a VCR that use Yellow video Ins and Outs? If so, then feeding the yellow cable from the converter into the VCR, then running out from the VCR to the TV should fix the sync issue. The VCR should encode this portion of the signal into the video cable feeding the TV.
Okay that sounds good, and let me know what you find please. I am also looking into a workaround for this if passing the signal through a VCR doesn't work.
Do you still have the same problem?
Okay. Let me ask you this, does the back of your PC and also your TV have a 15 pin HD jack (VGA)?
I'm sorry, this one has me stumped. I will opt out and see if another expert has any ideas.

Hi Rich, the MMC card is like a micro SD and designed for software updates for the TV from Hitachi back when it was supported.
Let me ask you this, have you tried any other sources connected to the TV- either via composite or component, and do you have the same results as when you use that converter?
That's bizarre. So the converter works from the cable box, but not the computer, and yet works with the computer and the same converter to another TV?
I know this may sound arbitrary, but what I would suggest is trying a VGA to component video converter- since those two signals more closely match each other and there's less chances of signal incompatibility on this set. I usually try to stick with VGA to component whenever I can anyways- less loss, and less "conversion" happening.
Right now you've got a digital HD signal, being stepped down to analog standard definition, and it's possible that this set simply doesn't like the signal from the PC's HDMI out. It could be a resolution issue, but in any case, I would suggest trying the VGA to component converter below. If you still have the same issue, then at least you can say you've tried all the options here, but this is what I'd personally try as a last ditch effort and stranger things have happened, but it MAY work:

I can understand that, I was pretty much saying it's worth a shot, as I've seen these units work much more reliably between PC's and a TV. If you need further assistance let me know.

When you try it and if you find it works- could you do me a favor and rate me as positive then?
