Hi to all,

sorry in advance for sounding like a newbie, since I AM a newbie.


So, I got as a gift a Sony VPL HS2 videoprojector, and I have my outstading PC with a Geforce 3 Hercules graphic board, with S-Video and of course VGA connectors.


This gift, being it a Sony, is nice and welcome, if it was not for the fact that it has not a standard VGA connection, but just RGB and S-Video, and then the infamous-Sony-proprietary PJ Multi connector.


So, to make this long story short, if I want to connect my PC to this projector I have just 2 options:


1) Connecting it using the S-Video output of the Geforce 3 to the S-Video Input in the projector (as I`m doing now), or


2) Buying a special Sony cable (VGA to PJ Multi) that costs about 100$ and that is unavailable everywhere and I have to wait at least 3 months... (see it through the URL below):

Before embarking myself in option n. 2) I would like to have your precious advise:


Will the picture be much better if I`ll use a "direct" connection using the VGA output instead of the S-Video one ?


Picture now is good (I watch mainly DVDs), but a bit "pixellated", and I don`t know if by simply using the VGA cable instead of the S-Video I will improve the situation or if it will just be 100$ wasted and 3 months of unusefull wait...


Thanks for your advise !

In theory the picture will be better if you use "direct" connection.


The reason being is that your video card has to convert from RGB to S-Video then your VPL-HS2 has to convert S-Video back to digital signal. Something bound to be missing.


Now I have a question for you. How is the digital keystone correction on this unit.


The reason I'm asking is because I may be buying this projector to be installed about 10' from the screen, 2' higher than eye level, and 3' to the right of centerpoint.


I'd like to know whether the digital keystone correction will actually correct this positioning.
