Thanks for your input - Sorry for the delay in responding - been out of town.
These are two Dell LCD monitors that came with Dell XP computers. I'm trying to run them with a newer VIsta PC. I'm using an HDMI to VGA converter (no brand name, it's a white box with "HDMI 1080" written on it, has VGA and audio output, HDMI input) and the monitor looks 'hazy', low contrast and resolution). NVidia tech support said HDMI to VGA converters would have low quality output. They suggested DVI-VGA (which I'm already using). See below:
S-Video would probably also have poor output quality even if it does work. There should be good HDMI to VGA converters that don't have lousy video quality.
This is the question I have - will S-Video also look poor? I'm using an HDMI to VGA converter and it's not good. I"m not watching movies on it, just regular computer stuff.
Thanks for your input.
