a customer that i installed a theater sytem for asked me to connect his blose lifestyle to his samsung lcd. the only video outputs are component and s video, i used the component and turned the unit on and started a dvd and there were was a split screen with the same picture on both sides. i thought the disc was faulty and tried another disc and the same thing. im not a fan of over priced blose equipment but i thought i would see if anyone here has had the same problem.

This sounds SO familiar. I'm thinking it's something about showing a 480i image on a component input that can only accept 480p... or maybe vice versa.

Which unit?

Are you using the VS1?

The head units have composite and s-video which together can be adapted with a bose supplied part (comes with it) and switched in the menu. I assume that you did this since you said it was connected via component.

Yeah, that's it, or vice versa; I can't remember or figure out which one it is, but that's it.

I think it's 480p going into a 480i input, because 480p sends out information twice as fast as a 480i wants it, so you get two images left to right. But wait a minute, there's a situation where you get two images top to bottom...but that would be 480 lines going out interlaced and being shown on a display that does 480 lines progressive, so it shows the odds, then the evens, and gives you two images vertically. Yeah, that's it: Daniel has it right. Or vice versa.

The resolution of the signal needs to be changed or it should be plugged into a different input.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.
