ns900 tp HS1 - What connection?


Well-known Member
Hi folks,

I currently have a Sony NS900 dvd player which i plan to connect to my Sony HS1 projector which is arriving sometime in the next two weeks. Leaving progressive scan out of it and considering costs are tight - whats the best connection for me to use?

I'll probably start with s-video. The questions i have is on the quality of the cable to use. Do i need an expensive one? Does picture quality degrade with longer lengths of cable?

Is anyone using the Sony cable to get a component cable feed to the projector and whats the quality like in relation to s-video?

I wouldn't use a cheap s-video cable if I were running it over a length of 5-10m. I bought an Oxygen free 10m s-video cable for around £30 (from Richer Sounds) which as far as I am concerned does the job excellently. I decided it was best not to buy the £9.99 10m s-video cable from maplins :)

As for component/s-video connections, yes there is an improvement, but for me personally it was marginal. Others have had different results, it is probably all down to the different DVD players (Do a search within this forum and you'll see the posts). Let your own eyes be the judge, if the image looks OK to you, then that is all that matters.
