    I have recently bought a X1 projector, and at the moment I have it connected to an older Pioneer DVD player (not a progressive-scan player) via a long S-video cable.

    My Pioneer has component video output (that is how it is connected to my TV) and I was wondering if it would be worth purchasing a component adapter from Infocus with this setup? Do they make component lines that will stretch 15-20'? Will I see a noticable difference with a component connection rather than an S-video?

    Sorry for the newbie question, but I can't seem to find an answer to this question.

    Chris, I do think the S-video/component adapter would improve image a little bit. I have the X1 also, but I am using the VGA/component input with a progressive scan player. You can get component cables that long, I'm just not sure where. Some guys make their own with RG6 cable.
