I am trying to figure out how to connect my new toshiba 57x81, leadtek Geforce 3 ti500, viewsonic PF 815 22 inch, and HiPix HDTV card. I saw the FAQ at

http://www.digitalconnection.com/Sup...ffnotes_14.htm


and the #3 looks great except it doesn't include a monitor output, which is interesting since all the powerstrip faqs say to test the powerstrip settings on your monitor first.


The inputs :


SVGA monitor with VGA and BNC inputs


HDTV with two component (Y-Pb-Pr) inputs



Outputs


GF3 with VGA and DVI output


HIPIX VGA output


I would like to avoid using the hipix pass through for monitor input as there is some signal degredation. I also would like to have hipix output to the TV of course as well as pc desktop for gaming. I do not need hipix output to the monitor.


Thanks for any help!!!!

here's what i did to test my custom ps settings. i install a network card and vnc software. i use vnc to connect to the desktop of my htpc and that way i can connect the loopback cable from the g/c to the hipix card. the vnc software is a little slow on the mouse movements but it works.

" 2 sets of ColorStream® HD High Resolution Component Video Inputs (Y, Pr, Pb) "

=============================================


I will take a stab at this even though there

are different ways it could be done.


HiPix set to YPrPb mode --> 57HX81 input #1

GF3 -> VGA switchbox

VGA switch1 -> (RGB->YPrPb converter) -> 57HX81 #2

VGA switch2 -> Viewsonic P815 VGA input


(VGA switchbox could be a VGA splitter /

distribution amp if you want to view both

bigscreen and 22" CRT at the same time)



Keep in mind that the HiPix will be set for

YPrPb output mode so you would need a

VGA->BNC cable to get the component outputs.

Also HiPix should be set for dual monitor

mode (no passthrough cable) so that HiPix

output is always active.
