getting video to my new Optoma projector


O

OhioGuy

I just bought an Optoma digital projector. I bought a VGA splitter
cable and VGA extender, so that I could simply turn the unit on and
watch whatever I could see on my PC. Trouble was, the video on my CRT
monitor no longer seemed colorful, and ghosting was present on both the
CRT and the projector.

After a bit, I also noticed significant distortion on the CRT
monitor. The distortion disappeared when I wiggled the cables, but
eventually came back.

Should I try different cables, or are there other options? The back
of the projector has VGA, S-Video and RCA inputs. (I wish computers had
RCA outputs on the back - that would make a lot of things simpler)

Get a dual head video card that can drive two monitors simultaneously.
