image quality is great! (just cannot get it in 1920*1080, so i use 1600*1200)

via s-video quality is really bad...

unfortunately the VAIO i have does nto have HDMI, so i am thinking about getting the new popcorn c-200 mediaplayer as i want fullhd...

shorting the pin10 ,means takign cable out of laptop, grab paperclip and touch casing and pin10 at same time (then PC mode is available)
Pin 9 is missing, all others are okay..

1. Did pin 9 break or is was it never there?

2. Is it possible to open the connector housing?

I checked VGA pinout. Pin 10 is ground.


If the connector can be opened, you could solder it to the main ground wire.

The main ground wire is usually unshielded and thicker than the pin wires.


Good luck
