Help me connect an HDTV to a Dual DVI video card

I have a Radeon 4800 Series (ATI) card made by Visiontek (model 4350).
It has dual DVI-I Dual Link outputs and S-Video.
I ONLY have component cables at the PC (connecting into projector on other end for home theatre setup).
I tried a DVI to Component adapter which does not work on this board.
I tried an S-Video to Component adapter which does not work.

What are other choices?
If I need to replace this card, can you recommend one that supports digital output via DVI to component adapter?

THanks!

  1. Does your HDTV have HDMI or VGA inputs, and what's it's maximum resolution?

    try this one: http://sewelldirect.com/dvivideoadapter.asp or http://sewelldirect.com/DVI-to-Component-Adapter-Cable-6ft.asp
  2. It is an Infocus 7200 projector - it has VGA but no HDMI input. Max resolution is 1280x1024.
    I ran component to the back of the PC years ago (before HDMI) so that is my only option - short of buying a new projector with HDMI inputs or finding a dongle that does the conversion out of DVI to Component. I thought I had this working but it could have been on other graphics card. The connector within current DVI-Component adapter is broken and when I went to order new ones, it says my card is not supported?
  3. If you're only using component for video and not audio then you'd be better off getting a simple DVI -> VGA adapter you can find anywhere for cheap.

    If you only intend to connect the PC to the projector to watch from a wall, then that should work without a problem
