    I'm planning my HTPC, no sure I know what I'm doing but hey...

    Is anyone running a Xbox(hi-def out) into sweetspot? What is the quality like? I also wondered how it would compare to to Xbox>VGABox>LCD?

    Secondly, how would you go bout having both the Xbox and Sky Digital connected to the Sweetspot at the same time?

    I have a DVI only LCD panel.

    Hi Matt,

    I am currently running Sky into the Sweetspot via Component/Svideo Sync and the picture is ace. I then run DVI to my projector and VGA to an LCD so I can run both.

    As for running both the XBox and Sky, see my thread in the forum, i am trying to work out the best way to do this with a PS2

    Cheers

    sweetspot only handles standard definition AFAIK.
    I don't think it even hamdles progressive.

    The main reason for using a sweetspot/dscaler combo is to handle deinterlacing and scaling so a prog scan hd signal kinda misses the point.

    Anyway I'm using one with my Xbox into an HS20 projector and a 37pw5 plasma and its great for gaming.

    if you've got xbox HD then run it straight into the component inputs or, as I do for convinience but discovered makes for a better picture, go into the VGA input by converting the component to VGA with an x2vga convertor.
