Great question.

How do you get the video signal from a DVD player to the LCD panel?

Hey guys,

If the panel has RCA in or SVHS in then you can you can go to your console/DVD player or TV OUT and connect it through RCA cables or SVHS cables.

If your panel doesnt have RCA or SVHS the get a Tv tuner or VGA box for tv input and DVD/p2s etc. or just use an internal DVD player.

I hope that helps

Yes, thank you.

Forgive my ignorance - the average DVD player - what type of resolution / signal does it output, and if I use an XGA display panel for a DIY projector will it provide a marked difference to an SVGA type? - That is considering signal is provided by a standard DVD player RCA Analog output.

I forget the DVD;s resolution I think it 720x480
I dont think there will be much of a difference watchin DVDs on SVGA or XGA if there is then its probably a small one.If you use RCA connection then the resolution of the media shouldnt matter.

Ah.

Thank-you again.
Does the resolution change when coming out of a digital video output of the DVD player - because I am trying to figure out why we would need XGA resolution at all - unless you are running movies off of your computers' DVD player at XGA.

I guess I am looking to build a "stand alone" projector.

Do you have any advice for or against this?

your resolution can be XGA or any resolution, the DVD or anysource will scale to fit VGA/xGA etc..

most ppl want XGA tp play their videogames or watch HDTV content,some even think getting XGA will get rid of screen door...lol

doesnt really matter what resoluton you have the source will likely be scaled and screen door will there as well, on some models.

OK,

So, it is a weakest link scenario. Where the LCD display will scale a DVD players' SVGA resolution OR a computers' UXGA (for argument) into the LCDs' native XGA resolution (if that is what you bought). And no matter what, the SVGA resolution from the DVD player will not neccesarily get any 'better' because of it.
- and I guess the 3-D Architectural drawings of the Off Shore Oil rig you are working at on your computer will also be limited to the LCD panels' XGA resolution.
