    I am getting a Z3 and i would like to know which is the best way to connect my computer to the projector for watching films. It has both a s-video plug and a 15 pin vga plug. My graphics card will output either DVI or s-video. it will be for watching hd material of the hard drive.

    Thanks

    S-Video will only carry standard resolution therefore you need to go for the DVI-VGA.

    Please note DVI - HDMI although technical possible with the proper cable will not process any purchased material with a higher than standard resolution unless you card supports HDCP. Not applicable with the Z3 of course.
