Anyone know A/V setups?

I posted this in the computer forum as I thought it was a problem with the PC connected to the system. I'm leaning away from a PC problem now that I have switched some things around.

Anyway, I'm linking to it here in hopes that someone may know something about these A/V switcher, scaler, rack systems. Perhaps the people that could help don't spend much time in the computer forum

Still nobody?

Well, I can see moving the thread here really helped. Thanks Mods!!

The point of creating this thread in the back porch was to get more views. It seems the Media Room gets less views than the Computer Room. I appreciate the effort to make sure it was in the correct forum, but it didn't help me this time.

No matter, I can't mess with the system anymore until next week.

The only suggestion I have is to take a known good VGA cable and run it directly from the PC to the projector and start adding equipment piece by piece.

That's about the point I'm at, but can't do it exactly like that. I have 2 video channels coming from the PC, so I can at least start swapping pieces between them in an effort to narrow it down. It's got to be either a cable, a video scaler, or the switcher. Until I dig into it further, those seem to be the common pieces for this issue.

Assuming everything is in a rack, just "barrel" your PC output cable to your Projector input cable. You just want to simplify the system first.

Doing so would require connecting the RGBHV connectors from each cable together right? I assume this is what you mean by "barreling" the cables.
