help with conversion component/vga

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so i'm trying to run a directv hd box via component into a kramer scaler/switch w a vga out to a projector. Will this work? believe it or not i cannot find anything about this even though i have tried searching. I'm hoping to get 720p output on the projector.

I'm thinking of removing the vga cable out from the scaler to the projector and putting in a dvi cable instead. Would there be any benefit to this? the run is about 50ft.

Thanks in advance

Sure, should work this way. No HDCP protection getting into your way. If you have the type/model of the Kramer unit, it would be even easier to look into this.

DVI might have better quality, but it's more critical to good cable quality. With a mediocre cable you might get not picture at all.

Thanks Fudoh for your prompt response it was very helpful. Do you have a recomendation from personal experience where one can buy high quality cables for longer runs at a good price? The scaler is a Kramer VP-728

Thanks again

that's a nice unit. Realta HQV processing and everything! I'm in Germany, so I hardly can recommend a shop for you, but I think Blue Jeans Cable is recommended and recognized by many users here. They offer HDMI to DVI cables. Their budget 50 feet cable is $37 and they high-end on is $163 (but out of stock). They also accept returns within 30 days, so you're on the safe side if you into troubles with your 50 feet run.
