I just placed an order for an 880 today,:cool: but as of right now I don't have a way of hooking it up. Unfortunately, my Pioneer Elite HD-520 does not have BNC RGBHV input jacks-- I have to use an HD15 connector. Can anyone suggest a good place to buy a good DVI-to-HD15 cable OR a good place to buy a DVI-HD15 connector and HD15 cable?

I see that BlueJeansCable has HD15 cables for about $100, but I'd like to keep the cable budget under $50. Thanks!

Hi guys...I'm confused and could use some guidance on which would be the best method to output from my Momitsu V880 to my electrohome marquee 8500.

Currently i am using the momitsu dvi output-> dvi/vga adaptor-> vga cable-> extron 202xi -> rgbhv cable -> M8500.

I have recently seen true hi def and i know there is room for improvement from the output of the momitsu (i have not yet entered a custum resolution), but have updated the firmware (but there may be one newer version).

I currently have an nec 6010 switcher on its way. I thought moome had a component/dvi card for it, but i think it is only for the xg projector (please let me know if he plans to offer a card for the 6010/6020 projector).

My rgbhv cables to the momitsu are 25' (made by techman707) and are buried, so it is not practical to get a moome card for the marquee. I am stuck using rgbhv.

so has anyone tested and concluded (or someone with a good theory) which would be better:

momitsu dvi output-> dvi cable ->moome external dvi/component box-> vga cable-> vga input on 6010-> rgbhv cable -> M8500.


momitsu modified with MP1 rgbhv BNC output-> bnc to bnc cable -> rgbhv bnc input card of NEC 6010 switcher -> rgbhv cable -> M8500.

If I went the mp1 route, i would likely have all the other suggested mods done to the momitsu done at the same time by a compentent forum member (who might stumble onto this thread []

please let me know which of these routes would be best or if there is an alternative dvd solution for about the same price.

I really appreciate your help sorting this out!!!

My Momitsu is hooked to my Barco by DVI-DVI/VGA adapter- VGA/RGBHV bnc cable to the Barco. Could also have done direct VGA into the Barco, but the RGBHV gives a better picture. The results are excellent. I don't understand why you would put a box between the Momitsu and the 8500, so I would say remove the extron and go right to the Marquee. Then try the customized setting and see what you think.

What resolution are you running on the Momitsu?

if you are only running 480p, you are wasting a good DVD player.

My Favorite resolution from my momitsu was 960p, however, I can't get my momitsu to reliably send that rez after turning it off and then on again, so for simplicity sake, I use 1080i. 720p is better than 1080i for DVD menus, BUT again, my momitsu will not do that after power cycling.

If your screen is 4x3, I think the Best rez is 768p (1024x768). my screen is 16x9, so I tend towards HDTV resolutions.

However, I must tell you, there is really no comparison between real HD (high bit rate), and DVD, even with the momitsu.

I have tried many custom resolution on both my V880 and V880N. I have settled on 1568 x 1080p @ 48 Hz for now. I can not seem to get the V880N to handle 1920 x 1080p. For the money - it is a very good scaler. I will list a few of my custom resolutions below.

Now if only they would release the long promised V880-N external input card so you could scale your other sources.

I can't imagine that the chip can handle deinterlacing 1080i so I guess I am left with SD TV and, God forbid, VHS (maybe camcorder), but still - it would be nice to have.
