    Projector Help !! 8800 gtx

    Hi Guys
    I have searched high and low for a solution to my problem but yet still no
    answersl.

    I have a nvidia 8800gtx with the lastest drivers. For those who dont know this
    card comes with dual dvi out and a s-video output. My Projector is a benq mp610 with a vga input and s video. The problem is i can only get the s-video to work in black and white( im doing lots of night flight at the moment! haha) as for the dvi i have used the dvi to vga adaptor but the the projector does not pick it up. Is the projector too old for the card or do i need something else like a signal convertor to get this working .

    Im really stumped with this and have spent too many hours messying around with it ( losted flying time!)

    Regards John D

    John,

    The DVI - VGA should work.

    Are you sure you dont have to set the projector to "VGA" some where in config,
    especially aftrer you have been using S-Video?

    Some projectors will Auto-detect signal...maybe yours needs to be manaully set?

    Hi Nat

    Thanks for the reply, the projector does an auto search . If
    i try it on another pc ( an older on) it picks it up straight away
    it seems to be that the projector is not picking up the signal .??

    OK Johnny,

    First...I'm assuming you have used the "source" button on your control panel,
    without any luck?

    If so, then I think the adaptor is not converting digital signal to anolgue...actually
    that will be a fact...and therefore your projector cannot accept that digital signal.

    I think the best soution is to go back to S-Video. Go into your NVidia control panel
    and play with TV settings..My bet is you have to switch to NTSC or PAL or vice-versa...
    (S-video is better than analogue anyway)

    Good luck...

    Nat

    Are you sure s-video is better? Isn't s-video limited to 640x480?

    What about PAL...?

    Some times you even have to choose the right country.

    @Brian...not sure about res.

    Maybe John needs a Digital to analog convertor?

    Re: Projector Help !! 8800 gtx

    I use a DVI to VGA adapter/connector ($5.00) on one of my video card digital outputs.This plugs into the xga input of my BenQ MP522ST.

    Video card is ATI X800xl, WinXP sp2, P4-3.4ghz ,FS9

    Might be worth a try.

    Regards Ken K
