    Just about to purchase a Sony HS20 for our offshore platform and I was wondering what we get in the pack and what cables would we require.
    We will be using it for DVD's (component), TV signal probably from a video and a PC.

    I understand you get a 10m cable supplied which you can plug in various devices correct?
    I presume I need a DVI-D to VGA cable to allow me to connect a PC to the PJ as our PC only has a VGA output.

    Not sure what cables come with the HS20 - maybe Kramer can help.
    I got various cables with my Panasonic including vga-vga, s-video and component. There may even have been a composite cable.
    Anyway none of that will help just wondering what platform you are on.

    I'm on the Brent Alpha and Eider, you work offshore as well?

    IIRC the PJ Multi cable has composite, svideo, component on the end.
    So that'll do for the dvd but you'll need an extra cable for the computer.

    KCADEUTAG engineering....

    Currently working on a BP BAKU project.

    Been on the Alpha but not the Eider.

    Sorry if this is a bit off topic - small world eh!

    I would be surprised if they give you a 10m cable with the PJ.

    You get a VGA to DVI converter.
    See link for example

    Some of the guy's with sony's should step in soon an let you know what comes with the PJ.

    Goragio, sounds about right to me looks like all I need is a DVI-D to VGA cable or adapters, anyone else can confirm this?

    The HS20 does indeed come with a 10m pj multi cable, allowing component, s video and composite inputs. There is also dvi and hdmi inputs for your computer to connect to, you just need the right adapter.
    Hope tat helps
