I have a Canon lv-x320 projector, and a sony BDP-S1700 dvd

Customer Question

I have a Canon lv-x320 projector, and a sony BDP-S1700 dvd player, but cannot get a picture from the projector when using an HDMI cable between the two. The DVD player works OK with a TV, but all I get from the projector is "searching for HDMI source- source not found". I thought it was fault and took it back and had it replaced, but the second one is the same. Any clues as to what is going on?

Do you know the video resolution the DVD player is outputting?

In terms of testing the DVD output on the TV, your using the same HDMI cable which was plugged into the projector and the same HDMI output port on the DVD player, and the TV was able to display the picture?
