I'm trying to figure out a way to connect my XBox, with HD pack (e.g., component outputs), to my Quadscan Pro. Clearly, the Quadscan Pro will be hooked up to my projector via a standard HD15 cable. I think there are only two solutions:


A) I use a component-to-VGA cable (do these exist) from the XBox to the Quadscan.


or


B) I use component-to-BNC plugs from the XBox to the Quadscan.


Is one way better/cheaper than the other? Is the first scenario even possible? Meaning, will there be any problem running a component signal through a VGA pass-through connection?


Thanks!

i think the x-box puts out a 480p and i don't think the quad accepts progressive. So you would have to pass it through. i don't have an x-box or a quad so i could be wrong.

Well, the VGA passthrough on the Quadscan is just that, VGA. You owuld need a transcoder in order to pass the signal through properly. The component inputs will not accept a progressive signal, so you wouldn't be able to hook it up that way. You might want to switch the signal with an outboard switcher.


Thanks!

Jason,


Is the Quadscan's passthrough active or passive. If it is active it MIGHT not work, but if it is passive (relays) there shouldn't be a problem.


Dan,


The Elite is similar to the Pro and no it won't accept a progressive signal.
