    I have the JBL Synthesis System (same as Lexicon DC-2) and I am curious can I use the S and Component video outs at the same time? The S video is going to the projector. I want to add a monitor in my equipment room so I do not have to walk around the corner to see what going on. I do not want to degrade the picture nor damage the processor. Thanks

    I haven't delt with that system specifically, but Generally they are independant of each other.Should work, give it a try

    I have done pretty much that with my system, but a little different. I go from my DVD player direct to the projector via component cable.
    I then go out of my DVD player with a video feed to the receiver and then out of the receiver via a video feed to a small monitor for setup purposes, much as you are talking about.
    I mention all of this detail as unless your processor takes a component in and then sends it to all outputs, you may have to set it up like I did. If you need the component switching through the processor, I suppose it's possible you can send both component and s-video to the processor and it will route each to the respective outputsf at the same time. I think you might just have to try to find out, unless someone happens to hop on here who has tried it.
