Here at our facility we run a constant powerpoint that runs from a computer (obviously), feeds into a device called an autopatch (http://i392.photobucket.com/albums/p...h1Y-16pic3.jpg
), which than feeds it to roughly 13 other televisions. Since upgrading a few of the televisions to larger LCD televisions (47" 1080p, 60 Hz) we have had a serious lag issue with some of the commercials that are running. I believe the resolution the computer is outputting is much too low. Essentially our goal is to upgrade the computer with either a new one or upgrading a different one we have in the facility (Dell Dimension 2400). From what I researched the Hertz or resolution is the common issue. I verified, both the computer and television are outputting at 60 Hz. When I messed around with a higher resolution it seemed to help out the issue, but lag down everything. However, we are running into several issues.
Right now the computer monitor is hooked up through a VGA cable straight from the computer. The televisions, which are fed from the Autopatch, are hooked up through a RCA cable (Video only). However, we are running a S-Video out from the computer which turns into a split RCA video cable to feed the televisions. The other computer we want to try out doesn't have an S-Video or a RCA video out. I figured we could split the vga signal into two, but the Autopatch only accepts a RCA video cable.
Our goal is to keep costs down, so upgrading the Autopatch system is probably way out of the question. If this makes sense to anyone, what would you recommend? We tried contacting our local computer stores for their input but they didn't have the necessary video card with an S-Video.
