Hi,

Would anyone have any suggestions how I could record the output of a
SVGA signal?

I have a video signal driving my LCD projector. The input to the
projector is through a conventional SVGA connector.

Is there a way for a consumer to record the video signal going through
that SVGA connector?

thanks,

Ron

That's similar to asking if it's possible to record a DVI signal...there may
be a technical solution that could work reasonably well, but I'd be
surprised if it existed today. The best solution might be to use the best
SVGA to component video signal converter available, and then use one of the
JVC VHS decks that can recorded component video which might be hard to find
now. That's the best I can suggest.

Out of curiousity what is the source device? A computer? The reason I ask is
because with a computer it's easy to "replay" what it displayed before, as
programs can be re-run. Unless you're playing a game which I guess could be
different each time. Or maybe you want to capture some computer output which
you can playback without needing the computer? If image quality isn't really
too huge of an issue in that case, there are a variety of computer vga to
s-video converters, some video cards have them built in, but you probably
already know that.

If you want to record a VGA signal, you need a scan converter. Some of them
are available for around 100-200 bucks, some are a lot more expensive. The
picture quality will be reduced to regular S-video or video resolution and
can be recorded with a VCR.
Most scan converters have a loop out, so you'd hook it up in line with the
VGA going to the projector.
