View Full Version : Is this possible?

24-03-2009, 05:36 PM
Currently I have at home, a 3GHz P4 based computer with an FX 5200 PCI graphics card.

The plan is this (well not so much a plan at this stage, more of a suggested remark)...
I want to use a projector and screen as the output. I want also to be able to input TV signals from the likes of TV1,2,3,etc etc.

Is it possible to do this and do away with the old CRT TV, and DVD player? The computer already has a DVD player.

What (apart from the projector and screen) will I need to do this?

Also, what specs will the computer have to be should I decide to go HD projection.

Also... pros and cons of projection vs big screen plasma screens please

Anybody done this?? What was your experience?

It'll probably be easier / better if you buy a tuner, if you want TV. Otherwise, you may have to get some kind of capture card anyway.

HDMI might help if you want HD anything. But, I dont think there's anything around thats PCI, that can do this. You may have to have PCI-E.

A projector may work , if the card has another output and the projector has a connection for it
