************************************************************************
In order to configure the proyector for hd video you would need to change a couple of things in your set up.

First you would need to use hd cables, and not the rgb. You can purchase some standard high def cables at any best buy or radioshack, depending on the source device there is the standard high def out, the set of 5 cables, 3 video plus the 2 audio.

To enable the unit to support the progressive DVD signal, perform the following
procedure.

Connect the DVD player’s component output into Input A.
In the SET SETTING menu select HDTV-YPbPr for Input A.
In the INPUT SETTING menu highlight Sync and select EXT (HV).
The IDTV module disables itself automatically

Perform this procedure with nothing connected to the component input on the projector, otherwise you will get the an off/on flickering screen which prevents you from seing what you are doing when navigating the menu screens. Perform the procedure and then connect.

Let me know if you need anything else,

Picture distortion


Hi!

That S-video cable...if it is longer than 1 meter you will get a poor picture. Get an component cable and connect your players thru that, that will improve thepicture 1000 times, belive me

This is the connectors back on your Acer
1 x RGB D-Sub 15pin
1 x Composite
1 x S-Video
1 x Component

And the component connector is way the best of them, its better that all of the together..if i may say so


Good luck
Nic

Sky + to a Hitachi CP-X340 Projector


I would use the s-video connection even though I see word that the Sky+ box does not have automatic aspect ratio switching on the s-video output. You could also use an SCART to RGB cable but the picture quality will only be marginally read:un-noticeably better. Here is an s-video cable:http://www.rselectronics.com/Catalog/ViewPart.aspx?Part=CSV-06&MFG=QVS And here is the SCART to RGB: http://www.svideo.com/scartrgb.html

Acer PD726W


Hi there

You'll have to settle for the ordinary Composite input on the Projector.

You do get a scart to composite convertor from most good PC & AV shops.

Pink tint when usig the RGB component cable


Check the green signal lead - if one of the RGB leads doesn't make good contact, the picture will take on an odd tint that doesn't always look like it's missing one of those colours. For some reason, the green is always the most common one to fail.

Connecting Sky TV to my projector


Which sky box do you have and which model projector. are you trying to use SCART or YUV or what.
Please describe the connector available on the sky box and the projector. if you dont know or they are not labeled nicely please refer to the chart in the link below and let me know what is on both boxes. I will do my best to reply with EXACTLY what cable you need and a good place to order it, US and UK. 
Also let me know what distance you need to run.
