    Hi, just finished building my HTPC, I have installed the radeon 9000 card want to hook it up to a Sony 11HT projector, looking to acheive the best possible picture for surfing the web and also viewing dvd,s.
    Which cable should i use, and where can i buy it?, the card has a dvi output but the proj does not have a dvi input.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    After DVI, I'd choose std. RGB you should be able to find a long monitor cable online.

    edit: removed the S-Vid stuff, checked the Projector specs, it can accept 15pin d-sub RGB.

    The 11HT doesn't have a 15pin D connection.

    You need to get a 'VGA breakout' 15pin D to 5 phono (RGBHV) lead an connect to either input A or B on the projector.

    Don't forget to configure the input to 'computer' in the projector menu!
