    Hi all

    Is it possible to connect the Domino 20H to a PC graphic card via the HDMI, :confused: or is the HDMI only for connecting up to suitably equipped DVD player

    I use a HTPC to view all my movies

    You can get an HDMI to DVI cable to use between a Domino 20H and your PC.

    If you don't already use it, Powerstrip is an excellent program for setting the output of your graphics card to the native resolution of your projector, i.e.
    1024x576 in the case of the Domino 20H

    Thanks Jeff, :smashin:

    Yes I use Powerstrip at the moment, to control the res to my Barco 708,

    Are there any advantages to using DVI as apposed to using component?
    The PC is outputting Progressive does that mean that the Sim2 deinterlacer would be bypassed.
    Also in the manual it says controllable by infrared and via RS232 serial interface does this mean that there are some RS232 commands out there?, would be nice to get hold of them, at the moment I use Girder and a serial plugin to switch the Barco on and off,

    Sorry for all the question just need to learn :lesson: all I can about this machine (Domino 20h )

    Thanks Again Jeff

    Steve,

    DVI will definitely give you a better image by cutting out the D to A conversion in the player and the A to D conversion in the projector. Staying in the digital domain gives a cleaner, noise free picture.

    On top of that you have the scaling facilities to match the native resolution of the projector when using a player like the Pioneer 868 or the DVI out of a Radeon graphics card on your PC.

    The built in Faroudja DCDI is by-passed when using the HDMI input on the Sim2 projectors.

    Control of the projector is possible by using the RS 232 interface.

    Regards

    Jeff :rtfm:
