The above TV's can be connected to a HTPC with the following methods:
HDMI (via a HDMI to DVI adapter)
VGA connector (only available on the MX195 models).
Component Video In (with computer video cards that have component video output like ATI All-In-Wonder 800XT)
The purpose of this thread is to share your experiences/successes/problems with connecting any of the above TV's to a Home Theatre PC. Therefore, the threads objective is to provide information so that all the above DLP owners will be able to successfully achieve the maximum picture quality by connecting their HTPC to their DLP television, whether one is using the HDMI, VGA, or component video connector.
As well, we also hope to come to a conclusive decision on which of the 3 above connectors provides the sharpest picture for HTPC connectivity (for those of use who are able to use any of the 3 connectors for this purpose).
So has anyone successfully been able to connect their PC's through any of the above connections? Please share your experiences
If you can, please provide the following information:
-What operating system (O/S) you used.
-What graphics card model is in your HTPC
-What resolution you successfully achieved
-What connector (HDMI, VGA, or Component video) did you use
-What (if any) custom timings did you use.
