    Projector Help

    Is 2000:1 Contrast Ratio good for FS. My computer also only has one VGA slot. Is there a way i can get a cheap spliter so i can use my current monitor as the displays in front of the pilot and the projector at the front. Thanks

    Please odnt mention Matrox. I need something cheaper that will allow me to put PFD and MFD on a seperate screen!

    I got a Benq w600 with 2600:1 and it gives me pretty nice visuals,so i think 2000
    will do just fine.
    Just make sure your sim area is not to bright.

    And when it comes to your problem with lack of
    monitor ports i got an idea!

    If you have a computer with usb 2.0 you can
    get a usb/vga converter.Its like a external videocard...
    Just plug it in and run the drivers and it works...you can plug up
    to 6 of these on one computer,so then you have a total of 7.

    I bought one a few weeks ago and its works very well...cost??About 60 euros.

    Yes it will apear as a individual screen so you can drag the instruments
    to the second screen and thats it...
    Make sure to save your flight when done with configuration.
