Hey All,

I am here to Warn anybody and hopefully we can get the word out and whomever is responsible for this oversight can possibly correct this Problem..

I had ordered 3 used Acer X1261P NVidia Certified DLP 3D PRojectors and found out the hard was that it is IMPOSSIBLE to Connect to a 6xx series and newer Video cards by Any Manufacturer..

The Problem is the newer video cards been replacing the DVI-I with a DVI-D connector.. The "I" designation makes it BOTH Analog and digital.. The "D" Designation is Digital and if you know anything about this you can NOT USe a Digital signal into an analog one..

Well you say why not use a adapter Sorry they do NOT work. well you say why not use an Active Converter one small problem with that as well is ALL the Converters I found ONLY Pass 60hz and as we all know 3D needs 120hz..

So there is ONLY 2 Solutions and here they are:

1. With the newer 6xx, 7xx series card is to TRI SLI..
2. Use an older 5xx series or below card ie,, 590GTX or 2 580GTX. they have the required ports still

Now I do NOT know who is responsible for this but I can ONLY think NVidia is Totally responsible for this Oversight.. I know they have to Certify all the 3D Equipment and I am unsre how they expect people to connect these VGA (Analog PRojectors with Digital Outputs??

So this is a warning and the Fix for the Analog Projectors.. IF you need any clarification Please post here and I can give you the Facts which all I can currently think of are here..

The NVidia configuration wizard is WRONG.. IT stated I could use the DVI ports and the Display port which the 1 DVI port is impossible to connect too..

I wish I could have 10 minutes with the Head Guy who certifies all the equipment and show them this oversight..

Too bad.

Though, to be fair, analog is legacy at this point and I don't blame them for dropping support.

It's just a matter of them not updating their website to be accurate as to what is and is not supported.

Yes I found that out the hard way hehe.. But I guess it was more of a vent after I near wasted 600bucks..

I am looking into a whole new setup...

EDIT well after reaching 2000 and still not done buying the setup I decided to Shelf the idea of buying an new setup... Just costs overrun and money is not that plentiful.. I may ,make a new screen tho..

I will just get 2 new Acer X1261P's and a 590GTX Video card.. THNX for letting me vent Analog is possible. I was told to look into a 690 but those things are 1000 bucks NO way I have or am going to spend that kind of money on a video card..
