    Connect Viglen Omnino to Projector

    Can anyone help me on getting the connection to work from the video output of an all-in-one Viglen Omnino (L295P) (legacy model) to a projector.

    I have the vga cable plugged into the back of the omnino going to the wall panel. Projector is a Panasonic wireless PT LB51NT.

    The connection works fine while booting up but as soon as it gets to the log on screen the connection dies.

    When I log in and go to graphics properties there is only an option to show via the notebook screen - which is the built in screen.

    When I plug the vga cable in to another monitor it shows the options of showing via notebook, notebook & monitor, monitor.

    All help appreciated!

    I would say it is their first series. Model is L295P and from Viglen's manual it is design 1 of their model A. Has a 15" screen. On Viglen's website it says it is a legacy model.

    The school has had them for at least 3 years (04/05).

    Thanks

    Ah, ok. Sorry, can't really help as we don't have that model here. What we've done for our second series ones was to buy a USB graphics adapter, and plug the projector into that. That means the teacher can have their work on the projector and the classroom control software on the screen in front of them.

    Hmm its a Clevo unit, it should work like a notebook in that case. What graphics adaptor does it have? There are a couple of manuals on the manufacturer's website that might be worth a look, CLEVO - Download go here and look for the L295P.

    Regards

    Thanks for that link. I downloaded the VGA drivers yesterday from Viglen which are the same on the Clevo site.

    The graphics card is an Intel 82845G.

    Tried again today with a vga splitter. When you use the video out to the splitter in the back of the Omnino and have a separate vga monitor attached to the splitter it will project to the whiteboard.

    As soon as the vga monitor is removed it will only project up until the log in screen then no connection.

    I tried all the F keys as per a laptop but no luck.

    I may go with a usb vga adapter.

    VGA splitters

    Just to note - if you use a vga splitter, an 'unpowered' one will normally work fine with a projector and a crt monitor but, if you have a tft monitor (as is mostly the case these days) you should use a powered splitter, as the signal degradation when splitting it will cause the TFT to 'shut-down' with no signal.
