    I am a digital photographer and could learn from those more experienced than me.

    I use the Sony KV 32HS500 wega tv to view digital photos (jpegs) in the photo studio, in real-time from the camera directly - or from the PC just afterwards.

    The VGA output is only fair so I tried a VGA-to-Component convertor with little if any noticeable improvement:
    Ultimate XP Pro from GrandTec USA

    The HS500 has a DVI interface and I would really like to use it with a PC graphics card. I have the ATI Radeon 7500 card with dual LCD monitors in an adjacent room (might be more than 30 feet=fiber optic?) I realize this use is not approved by Sony. What kind of resolution can I expect? How do I connect the card and the DVI in to the set? Do I need Powerstrip?

    Further, the images from the MemoryStick slot on the TV are GREAT!
    But Ive learned the new MemoryStick PRO format at 256/512/1GB is not going to be compatible with the older memory stick products

    I often shoot a full 512MF CF card at a time. I can view it through the PC (VGA) but Id rather adapt the CF directly to the MemoryStick input slot on the HS500. Since the MS-to-CF adapter is readily available why not the other way around?

    Im willing to use whatever software needed to create the DCF file structure

    PictureGear 4.3 Lite for PEG-S300 Update

    -if that is even necessary.

    Suggestions on best setup for higher resolutions than I am currently getting are truly appreciated.

    I've used S-Video input from my iBook mirroring the LCD 800x600 or 1024x768 and just did a slideshow style preview for my client. Rotated the vertical shots first of course. Quality was nice how long can S-Video cables go?

    Is S-video an option for you PC?

    Worked well on my 32 HS500

    Actually I have used S-video from a laptop - not sure what would happen with a 30+ foot S-video cable.
    The pic quality is so much better ftom the memory stickes - thats what motivates me to try the DVI input -

    Maybe I should just get an ISP tech to calibrate the TV and help figure out a setup - and to help find the correct DVI-X cables,.,,

    hi guys !

    how do you want your svideo input to go over the standard NTSC resolution ????? you will always have 480 lines.... maybe you can go over 500 colums if your cable is very good.... the only way to have a higher resolution is to go through composante cable in HDTV mode or to use the DVI connector....
    in this configuration, you can display up to 1920*1080 in interlaced mode....

    i'm currently using my memory stick to display still pictures... and it makes no differences over 800 lines (ie : about 1100*800)... the fact is that a 32 inches WEGA tube can't display 1080 lines....... only a projection TV can... and not all of them...
