Has anyone published their wiring diagram or cable hook-ups for their HTPC > D-ILA? I'd like to see how the various components are interconnected; with video cards, video capture cards, sound cards, analog v digital connections, multiple connections possible at the projector, it sure would be nice to see how some of you have arranged things. I'm hoping to avoid having to "re-invent the wheel."

I also seems to me many of the inevitable errors might be avoided; some of the more obvious questions "pre-answered."

If you can help, it sure would save me patches of unquestionably thinning hair!

Thanks guys.

I believe it really depends on your components.

I don't own a D-ILA...heck I've never seen one except in use at a museuem exhibit.

What I do know:
The internal scalers generally stink. What I would guess you do is run all your analog through your AVR (audio video receiver) and the output into your HTPC. Try to use s-video all the way. Then HTPC -> D-ILA. Depending on if you have some other hi-def devices like an HDTV box, you might have to get tricky on the video inputs.

I personally route my audio seperately since it was getting tricky switching it through the computer (and unnecessary.) The audio on my Dreamcast, VCR and satellite box simply goes from the device, to my receiver to speakers. Video goes through the receiver with the monitor output connected to the svhs in on my tv card. From computer, video goes into my display. I also have the VGA box for my dreamcast which I use occasionally by swapping cords. I really shoud buy a switcher...
