I use both a television and a projector to watch DVDs via my AV8 (software V4). The path from DVD via AV8 to television is S-Video. From DVD via AV8 to projector is interlaced component video. When you assign one of the HQ video inputs to the DVD input so that the component feed to the PJ will work, the S-Video siganl goes off. To make this choice easier for other family members (though still beyond some) I created two presets one for PJ the other for TV. Sometimes you can catch out the AV8. It can be powered up in PJ preset and surprisingly the S-Video feed is working including the AV8 graphic overlays. Switch on the PJ and that too is fully working, overlays and all. Change the preset and it reverts to normal, one or the other behaviour. Clearly therefore the AV8 hardware can cope with both interlaced component and S-Video simultaneously, so why is this normally prevented? Have I missed something? Can the AV8 be persuaded that it should do both normally? TIA. Bob.
