What do I need to do to hook up my DVD component output (RCA: Y, Pr, Pb) to my new video projector (D-sub: VGA)? I have 15 feet to go in-wall/ceiling.


Thanks

Guys!


Unlike satellite HDTV tuners, many of which are selectable for Y Pr Pb or RGBHV output, DVD players usually have composite, S, or Y Pr Pb (component) out. If the projector has a component in mode then you only need an appropriate cable; if not, a device called a transcoder is required, along with appropriate cables. See www.keydigital.com for info on transcoders, see www.bettercables.com for cabling help.

The projector lists Y, Pb, Pr as one of the acceptible inputs, and some 15 different video resolution/framerate combinations it can handle. I'm more than confident it can do this, but I'm just looking for a good source for the cable- whether it's custom, or a stock adaptor that I then tack on to my own RCA cables for component.

You can buy a 15' Component to XVGA cable from Ultralink. It's CL3 rated so you can use it inwall or in celing. You don't need a transcoder to that direction only the other.
