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...


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 !

He he, I knew that here was the right place...


So, this "special cable", codenamed SIC HS30 is on one hand a standard VGA connector and on the other hand a "PJ MULTI (Sony Proprietary trademarked and copirighted) 32 pin connector".


Since I`m REALLY a newbie I don`t know how to post here the picture, but if you go to the following URL:

http://www.sony.it/images/Prodotti/v...ne/sichs30.gif


you`ll see it.


I hope that by using it I`ll improve the picture quality of my DVDs, but I just want to be sure that it will REALLY improve it...


Thanks for any feedback

Ick, that's nasty. What about its Component Video Inputs? Are they just the typical 3-RCA plugs? If so, you might be better off replacing your video card to an ATI Radeon that will send a progressive signal (well, that's also expensive). I don't see an easy way out for you, unless there are other inputs I don't know about.

Thanks for your interest: I think that your opinion is that I`ll have a better picture quality if I`ll buy it and use it instead of the S-Video, and so I`ll try to find it or order it, hoping that delivery will be fast (some suppliers are telling me 3 months !!!)...
