I have a dell 4400 , ATI AIW 7500 connected via VGA and S-video to a Sharp A10X for projection.


DVDs look great, however some video games (50%) have a vert scroll unless I switch to a s-video connection via the sharp remote. That stops the scroll, but image quality suffers.


In addition I use snapstream for TV projection. I also is not as clear an image as I would like..Comcast has HDTV in the works which I hope will help in this area..


But in the mean time I was thinking that I might be able to use dscaler to clean up the images but its turn out that it doesnt work with ATI cards.


I was hoping that someone might be able to tell me:


1) get these games to work via a VGA input?

2) Any alternative to dscaler for ATI card?

3) Does anyone know if comcast HDTV will improve image quality when its available?


tahnsk in advance

If you can get HD on cable, go for it. Realize that you'll be dealing with a cable box (sounds like you're doing all tuning from the AIW now). Also, it depends on which cable box Comcast is using-some have better connectivity options than others for your PJ.


Dscaler will clean up SD material pretty well if you throw enough processing power at it. I say a minimum 2ghz machine for best results. You could get a $35 capture card (Xcapture seems popular around here) and run S-vid out from the ATI into the Xcapture. Dscaler will find and use the signal from the Xcapture and output to your PJ.


Thats weird with the Video games. I know some games "force" a certain resolution and ignore your desktop (my little girl has some games that do this and its most annoying). But I've never gotten a "roll" out of it. Weird.
