Hi, i am running e6600, 975x, 2 gig ram and 8800gts running vista home edition into my pt-ax100e panasonic lcd projector using hdmi to hdmi cable with dvi adaptor, but it doesn't work, but if i use a standard pc cable it works fine. Does anyone know why? I have tested the hdmi cable into my dvd player and it works fine, so iam not sure about what i need to do. Any help would be great. Thanx...

I think you need an HDMI adapter specifically made for the videocard. I'm not sure a generic one will work.

Haven't tried it, but that's what I've heard...

By standard PC cable, I assume you mean standard analog RGB.

It might be an adapter issue as mentioned. I might also be an HDCP (copy protection) issue, but for for standard computer signals, I don't think it should be the problem, only for playing HD content.

What HDMI cable, and adapter may be helpful. There are different versions of HDMI. I am not positive, but there may be some forward compatability problems.

Vga. Finally got it runnung, but picture doesn't appear until desktop. Tried both hdmi and vga, and i think i prefer vga. hdmi seems to be darker and vga more natural.
