Does your computer have DVI output or only analog? You can get inexpensive DVI to HDMI adapters -no conversion needed, just different connectors..

  Hi All

  This is off the general robotics topic but I'm looking for advice about connecting a projector to a computer via S-video.

  I have a JVC D-ILA projector that does not have a VGA input therefore we have to use S-video to connect it to a computer (HDMI = $$).  When I connect a computer (I've tried multiple units, laptops & pc) the projected image is blurry. The projector works wonderfully with DVD and other home theatre inputs.  So far  I've adjusted the focus, reduced the distance between the computer and projector and played around with graphics card settings and nothing improves the situation.

  I've run out of ideas so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
