I have a Infocus X1 in my garage and I upgraded my dish network boxes and the only have HDMI. Can I just use a VGA to HDMI Connector? This will not be for bluray just For dishnetwork. Thanks.

Nope! they have video but not composite. This is the new hopper by Dish. Love my X1 because it still shows like i first bought it ten years ago. Which still amazes me. So i would need a converter. I was hoping to keep my X1 but now i might have to shop for cheap replacement. Thanks

you mean outputs? yeah, it should.


This might not be a problem you want to work too hard to solve.. " oops sorry honey, guess this new box needs a new projector to connect to" But even if it works... a 10yr non-hdtv projector with a 480 signal? iick. Op seems happy, but with acer h5360 720p and H6510bd for 400 and 630.. it seems a shame not to send that HD signal to a projector that make it look fantastic. OP sure got his money out of the X1.. may be time to put her down.


I don't like "let me spend your money" posts, but in this case i couldn't help it.

I have just connected my old X1 to a spare Bluray player via a Component to VGA adapter and the results are pretty amazing. No jaggies. Very nice PQ. Get one at Amazon. In Focus Component to Vesa Adapter Cable (SP-VESA-ADPT-R) for about $20.


A surprisingly sharp picture when fed 1080i.


If the unit you have has only a video (Composite) output the Faroudja deinterlacer in the X1 should still produce a pleasant picture.
