    Can anybody recomend a cable to connect a PC (DVI) to a Reciever (component)?

    Would a DVI-I to Component work? Can anyone send a link?

    My Lcd Projector (Sony HS-50) is connected to my reciever (Sony DA1200ES) via component.

    :lease:

    There are three ways for sound.
    1. Fibre http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/TS001.html check what your output is from your PC, set PC to Spdif out
    2. Co-ax http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/PH400.html check what your output is from your PC set PC to Spdif out
    3. Analogue you need three of these http://www.tvcables.co.uk/cgi-bin/tvcables/PH200.html plug into your 5.1 direct input on amp.
    The advantage 3 has over 1 and 2 is that games will work 5.1 correctly and any films in 5.1 that are on your hard drive. Set your PC to 5.1 speakers. If your AV amp has 7.1 direct in and your PC has 7.1 out just get another cable.
    P.S. DVI is video ONLY.
    If your Graphics card has Component available you should have been supplied with a Component interface cable which looks like a S-Video cable to Component cable.
