I'm talking about the 9 pin Component Cable thing that comes with some Nvidia cards.

I posted this on the Graphics Card section and not the Nvidia section because I figured it'd get more views.

What I'm wondering is, how high of a resolution does it get on an HDTV?

480P, 720P, 960P or 1080i?

Also, is the quality really HD or is it something like regular component cable? (Slightly better than S-video, but not really HD or progressive)

I'm wondering if using this connection, someone could use their projector TV as an HD monitor of a large size?

I used to TRY to use S-Video on a big screen TV but the resolution was too crappy and you couldn't read text.

component,dvi,hdmi, and rgb will give you hd.
s-video wont.

if you have an hd capable monitor then you can use it .

So in other words, the connection and box art is lying? It's basically advertising HD out when it's just standard video converted to RGB?

I could be mistaken but if you have HD content on your PC you wish to view on an HDTV then yes, the component output will supply your TV with HD. I have an HDTV tuner card on my PC and it outs perfect HD picture to my HDTV via compoment cable. I have yet to try this with my 8800 gts which claims to do HD out but I fully expect it to work.

It is HD out, as long as you have the proper component cables. You can select the resolution (1920x1080) for the display. Its pretty cool to have as a game screen too... played HL2 and CS:S on my HDTV, was pretty damn sweet i must say...

:p

Well the connector isn't just S-video, it looks like a plain S-video port but has added connectors for the component connector.

As to what kind of output it provides, RGB or Component (Y,U,V / Y,Pb,Pr) he should check with User Manual.


The Hybrid connector (top) and the Svideo connector;

ok then i would imagine that hybrid s-vid should carry an hd signal
just fine. since regular s-vid splits the signal in two.

and the hybrid s-vid will carry all three.

cool thanks didnt know that :D

No worries, you can always edit it, but I understood, at first said where's the reply but found it no problem.
