May I ask what you mean by 'removed rf on video card'?


Also what do you mean with modded bnc plugs?


I'm using a similar setup on a XG110LC, have also considered the Moome box. But I was told the difference isn't too big (at least not compared to a modded gfx).

Not an XG, but I use the Moome card with another PJ (G70) and highly recommend them. I wanted hassle-free access to the new HD optical formats and this card comes through in spades.


I can't imagine ANYONE on this forum not using one of these. To me, it's a no brainer.

I didn't find it to be an upgrade - not compared to a BNC modded video card.


And getting high res signals to run over DVI is a huge PITA, VGA is so much more robust. So you can fun 1080p via DVI, but I found it difficult to find a cable that would do it - you'll end up spending LOTS on a cable.


I now have a HDMI input card in the NEC switcher...but I still haven't found a 1 metre cable that'll do 1080p robustly..

I'm pretty confused at this. There are plenty of 1920x1080 LCD monitors that run over DVI just fine with a standard cable. What sort of problems did you encounter?

The only reason to get one of these cards is just to be able to hook up newer equipment that does not have vga/rgb outputs and since you use a htpc that shouldnt be a issue for you. I dont think there will be any PQ improvement since its still getting converted back to analogue.

Thanks for the info guys, I may still have to get one, because all the new video cards for pc are HPCP compliant from what I heard.


although there may be a way to remove HDCP from pc cards by software or hardware,not that i'm aware of any but going from previous CP's someone will work it out.


Cheers

Text dropping out at about 1080p 50hz.


I've tried 3 cables and 3 video cards.

Have your tried a search? Don't forget the archives.


Try looking for BNC mod and MP-1 (which is a bit more complicated).

Sorry I don't know of a artical to do so, I have been modding my video cards for years now.

nothing like getting a new $1200 video card then attacking it with a soldering iron,

.

basicly what is done is you remove the rf dampers by removeing the caps on the video output and shorting the lines, prob best to leave the protection diodes their.


and for bnc you add bnc plugs to the card so the rgb runs the the bnc plugs not the vga socket.


Cheers

I tried two of these cards and my XG1352 never was able to sync. Both cards had latest eprom.
