Ignite HDMI to AV Adapter Problem

Hi,

 

I just had Ignite installed. One of the TV's is older JVC tube TV wth only RCA jacks on back.  I ordered a GANA HDMI to AV adapter.  https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B06X6HBQDH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 

When plugged in, I get mostly horizontal bars moving up the screen.  The colour seems to be only in black and white as well.  The tech had recommended this adapter, but not sure why it doesn't work.  It does have PAL/NTSC switch but same problem both ways.  

 

I'm wondering if the adapter is bad.  Is there an adapter anyone recommends?

Re: Ignite HDMI to AV Adapter Problem

First thing I noticed is that it's only HDMI 1.3 capable. That may be an issue - should probably be at least 2.0. Have you tried going into the Ignite settings and choosing say 1080i instead of "auto" or whatever your current setting is?

Thanks for the reply.  I can't see much on the tv so difficult to make changes to the settings. I'll have to try and hook up box to other tv.

Yeah, plugging into another TV or a monitor with HDMI would be your best bet.

if the 1080i doesnt work (worth a try as its interlaced vs progressive, might work), try droping it to the the lowest setting.

Re: Ignite HDMI to AV Adapter Problem

I ended up picking a new adapter from Canada Computers https://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=1336_1352&item_id=098689

 

Works great.

 

Thanks for your help.
