    Just a tip, Chris, I know you're a new member, but take the caps lock off - there's no need to SHOUT!! It makes it really difficult to read and somebody who may have been able to help you might not bother to read your thread.
    Sorry, I can't help on this particular subject.
    Enjoy the hobby :cool: Caroline

    You should get a hd15(vga) to 5 BNC cable and use the RGBHV bnc sockets on your projector.

    However you don't say what model of projector it is so we can't say whether it'll work. The projector needs to be capable of receiving a progressive scan signal and of scanning up to 32kHZ (line doubled). If it's a LCD device or DLP then you are likely to be OK. If it's a CRT give us the specs or model number.

    All the best,

    Gordon

    Vixpy: Set the PC to 600 x 480 (VGA output)in its "display" settings on "control panel" and you should be OK. I don't think that the 400 plus can do 800x600. Best not to try it as you might stress out the power supply.

    600x480 is more suited to this projector anyway.

    Use the lead I suggested.
