Dell Latitude Upconvert DVD to HD DVD on Olevia HDTV via VGA

by spiderguy84 / April 8, 2007 1:40 PM PDT

I have a Dell Latitude D600 with VGA output. I just bought a 37" Olevia 237T HDTV with VGA Input. My Video Card is ATI Mobility/Radeon 9000 AGP 512 MB RAM. Can my laptop upconvert DVD to HD DVD using the VGA cable, and if so how do I do this. Or, do i need to have a specific type of software for it.

So far "never going to happen."

The output of HD over any unencrypted video link is under heavy attack.

Without HDCP on the link, there is no HD output. This and more discussed at

Caveats (there always are)

1. Your display supports 720 or better via VGA connections.
2. It's your content, ie not bluray or HDDVD.
