I just built a temporary HTPC with a hipix card and a 750PIII with 256meg ram. I am using a standard ati video card for now and also am running beta 2.2 on win2k. I built the machine at work using a standard pc monitor during the process and all was working perfectly. I was able to watch tv and record Hidef and it looked great. Well, I just brought it home and set it up to my 10ht and cant seem to get the pc to show on the screen. I am using the loopback cable and a vga to 5 bnc connector cord to go to the 10ht. I am rcording using Y Pb Pr. I can watch a show that was recorded in hidef and it is stunning, but when i hit the mouse to go back to the pc screen, I get an out of range message from the projector. What settings should I be using to get this to work. I feel as though I am so close, yet so far. HELP please

Stu

What resolution you have your PC's Video Card running at ?


I don't know nothing about yout Sony TV, but it can only handle a resolution below of your PC's output. BTW: What is a 10ht ? Can you receive a PC picture on your TV if you connect the cable directly to your Video Card ?

I am running my pc at 1024X768. The 10ht is the sony HD projector. I havent tried the projector directly from the PC, though it does have a computer mode. I will try that in the AM

Stuigi,


Are you able to boot to a PC desktop, but unable to get back after viewing HDTV? Or are you saying that you can't get the PC desktop on the 10HT at all?

I am able to boot to a desktop with the projector set to computer mode. When I watch something on the hipix in hidef mode, I have to switch the projector to rgb mode. On the Sony 10ht, this is a pain in ***. I am trying to find a way to leave the projector in rgb mode and still be able to see the pc desktop when I esc out of a hi def picture. Right now, when I escape out of hidef mode, I have to again switch the projector to computer mode or else I just get a blank screen.
