Hi Im ready to take the plunge into the home cinema lake so hearty thanks for all the useful info posted on these boards that Ive mopped up over the last few months. So, Id like if I may to pick your collective brains a bit more. Im looking at going for an HTPC set-up feeding the video capture card (IDS Falcon or WinTV) with composite for VCR (encompassing the tuner) and S-vid from the sat box (converted from RGB with a JS Tech converter (http://www.rgbtosvideo.com/) or something similar). Sound out from the PC-DVD player via sound card with optical out to compatible amp system For the video output, Im looking at a Radeon 8500 taking the DVI output to a Proxima X350 DLP proj (specs: XGA DLP 1100 Lum also sells as under the Ask M3 brandname) Now questions you better educated people could probably help me with 1. Any better recommendations for cards? 2. Does the sat and VCR hook up sound likt the best way? 3. DVI connection enables the highest qual. feed to a digital PJ is this true? 4. Specs and numerous reviews Ive seen on this PJ seem v good for the cash (GBP 2 to 2.5k) but I cant find a UK place to see the thing working to find out if its as good as it sounds or whether Im susceptible to rainbows anyone have any experience/knowledge of this proj? Sorry about the length of my first post if any of you are still awake after my ramblings, could you pander to my curiosity? And of course once I get the kit installed Ill try to provide useful posts in return.
