I just got a Hipix card installed in my computer and am having some problems getting it working.

I got a Sony 32" Wega Television which is capable of displaying a HDTV Picture via component imputs.

Since the hipix card only outputs VGA Signals, I went and purchesed a VGA to Component Adaptor from Key Digital Systems.

Basically I can get it to display my desktop fine through the computers video card, however I can't get it to display an HDTV picture properly from the Hipix card. Basically I get all swiggly green lines when I try to connect up the hipix card to my Tv.

Any help will be appreciated, because this is probably a very simple solution

I hope you can return that Key Digital transcoder because you don't need it. The HiPix outputs RGB OR YpBpR. It's in the MENU settings. All you need is a VGA to BNC cable with three BNC to RCA adapters. You only use the RGB tails in YpBpR mode, the sync tails (typically white and black) are not used.

Also check the resolution settings for the HiPix. These have nothinmg to do with your comouter's video card settings in the Windows control panel. The HiPix suports all ATSC rates plus a few more.
