    Hi,
    I have a YAMA AMP and a Panni Projector and have just received my Vid card to go into my HTPC

    The Vid card is an X800 Pro and has S-video, DVI-I and a VGA output

    I would like to connect the VGA to a 17" monitor so I can view general TV but when I want to watch movies can bring in my projector.

    The question is this:-

    I want to send my signal from the Vid card to my Amp which supports the following inputs:-
    S-Video
    Component
    Composite

    The Amp will then convert either of the above inputs to Component which I will then take directly to my projector

    So do I jsut use the S-video or should I use the DVI-I and convert this to componet prior to connecting to the Amp, is this possible and what will give me the best solution.

    many thanks

    Ps the reason I want to go through amp is I will also be connecting my TV/VCR to the AMP and may want to put this through the projector .

    Hope you can understand all this its hard to explain... never mind physically acheive it!!

    If you projector has a DVI Input I'd connect the Graphics card directly to this Input.

    If your projector doesn't have DVI but does have VGA then I'd suggest you add a 1:2 VGA Distribution amp and send VGA to both your 17" monitor and your Projector.

    I'd run a second analogue YUV cable to the projector from your AV Receiver to cater for all of your analogue signals.

    Taking the output from your graphics card as Composite, S-Video or RGB Component (via DVI) and then converting to YUV in your AV Receiver will look terrible.

    Best regards
