Hi I have 800mhz computer with a Voodoo3500 video card with a Toshiba DVD drive and a Soundblaster live 5.1 audio card. How do I convert my video cards video output (via either s-video or rca) into a 540P or 1080i signal to input into my HDTV? I want to do this so that I can use Avia to configure my HD settings on my TV, as my living room dvd is not progressive scan. Are PC DVD's progressive scan? How would I tell?


Thanks to anyone with info!!

I think most HDTVs will line double interlaced input that you would give it from the S-Video output of your video card. Does your HDTV only have progressive scan inputs?

Would be good if you told us what TV you have http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif I'm in a somewhat similar situation if I read your post right. I've got an HDTV that will only accept 1080i (and 540p.) I just set my desktop resolution to 60hz at 960 x 540 and it works fine. You probably want to use Powerstrip 3.
