Thank you very much for the powerstrip timings and sharing your wealth of knowledge....
Most of my HTPC is arriving in the mail this week and we're about 3 weeks from lighting up a new dedicated theater. I would like to run the configuration past you and also welcome comments from others.
Zenith Pro900x forward CRT
80"x60" 4x3 screen
Zektor HDS4 4-1 component video switcher http://www.zektor.com/hds4/index.htm
Input: STB, XBOX, & DVD Player
Output: Component into KD-XB
Key Digital KD-XB transcoder
Component sources in from HDS4
RGBHV in from HTPC DB15 dongle on 7500 DVI
Output: RGBHV out to Zenith Pro900X CRT
There seems to be many ways to configure this gear... which way would you suggest to get the best pq?
Q. Does the HiDTV transcode the VGA signal on the pass thru into component?
Q. HiDTV Pro component out w/7500 on the pass-thru -> HDS4 -> KD-XB
Q. HiDTV Pro component out -> HDS4 -> KD-XB AND 7500 DVI->VGA dongle -> KD-XB?
Haven't purchased the KD-XB yet... waiting on a call from support to see if it only works w/XBOX.
Haven't purchased the ATI component dongle yet, I'm researching if the HiDTV will transcode the ATI VGA input to component.
The Zenith owners manual shows the following:
Horizontal scan freq 15.0 - 50kHz
Vertical scan freq - 40.0 - 100Hz
Retrace Time = Horizontal: < 3.5us 15.0-50kHz
Bandwidth 37.5 MHZ
RGB resolution: 1920x1080i
Video resolution: 800 TV lines
I'm really digging the powerstrip data you posted for 4x3 screens...
Q. Can I run those timings on the Pro900x or is there more tweeking for me to do?
