Hi all...Same here with same problem.
Got my benq W1070 and PHILIPS LCD and DENON .
I would like to stream TV signal to my projector.I have only coax antenna cable pluged into my TV.
Is there option to stream that coax TV signal to projector without set top box?
I don't want to use again another new remote to switch chanells on TV..
So how to connect all that gadgets properly?
If possible without set top box...?
At some point the single needs decoded. This decoding happens in the TV or in the set top box. You can get the coaxial signal to the projector with above methods but its useless without decoding it. A few solutions that come to mind that may satisfy you are:
A. If you are lucky and your TV has a video output you can stream that output to your projector in place of trying to use the coaxial cable. Equipment needed would very depending on the connection the tv is outputing (hdmi, ect.). Changing the channel (or input source) on the TVwould then also effect the projector.
B. Unplug the coaxial cable from the TV, plug the coaxial into a set top box, plug the set top box output into the DENON Receiver. Now you would change your TV channel on the TV threw the set top box and view it with the HDMI input that you get from the Receiver. This is nice because you no longer have to change sources to view TV vs any media you run threw the Receiver. A universal remote, and probably your TV remote or DENON remote, should be able to be programmed to change the channel on the set top box, control the Receiver and also work the menu and anything else you wish on the TV. If your DENON has two outputs your set, leave TV connected as is and hook extra output to streaming device. If there is only one output you can get a HDMI splinter or switch, run one to TV and other stream to your projector.
