Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I'm trying to play a DVD video running over a 100 ft. ethernet cable from a new Dell Optiplex 745 using a ATI 1650 Pro 512 MB video card connected to the Epson 1815p screen projector. The video is then displayed on a 9x12 foot wall screen that is 19 feet away from the ceiling mounted Epson 1815p screen projector.
Epson Factory Tech Support is extremely poor, and I have basically given up calling them.
Powerpoint slide shows work fine, but DVD playback is bad with jerky display when there is motion in the video. Audio seems to sync OK, but with the jerkiness, it seems out of sync.
Everything else works just fine, this is my only issue, but my boss says that he will not use it until the video jerkiness is fixed. He's banned the staff from using the Epson screen projector until it is fixed also.
So I have basically a $3000.00 boat anchor until this video display problem is fixed..........
If anybody responds, thanks, and hope we can come to a concenus on the solution.
I am assuming that the DVD plays normally on the display of the Dell 745.
Then the issue(s) may be with the:
1. Networking configuration/set-up of the Dell and/or the Epson;
2. ethernet cable;
3. configuration/set-up of the projector or the Epson itself.
A couple of things you can try:
1. Optimize your networking throughput.
1.1 Increase your PCI Latency Timer to 128 or 255 in the Dell's BIOS/CMOS setup (if present);
1.2 Try running DRTCP.exe and/or TCPOptimizer.exe appropriate to the Dell's OS;
1.3 Disable all other networking activities on the Dell. This may include auto updates, security/antivirus checks, etc. while running the DVD;
1.4 Slim down Dell's startup programs to bare minimum;
1.5 Increase your OS' swap file to roughly double your onboard memory
2. Try running a hub midway between the Dell and the Epson.
3. Verify that it is not the Epson that is problematic by playing a video source to the projector’s Video or S-Video port. If it is, then you have narrowed down the problem to the playing capability of the Epson.
Alternately if all else fails, perhaps you can try using:
1. a DVD player to the projector’s Video or S-Video port; and/or
2. a USB external DVD drive or a CompactFlash card (with a copy of the movie) direct to the 1815p
while settling the main issue.
Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
