I just found a command for ivtv to enable low-overhead passthrough directly
on the card:


So if the projector has an svideo input, that's how you could do it, just
have the svideo
output of the pvr go to the projector, and use that passthrough command pass
the video.

But if you're running an svideo cable all the way up to the projector
anyway, why not just
plug the game console into that directly? I can only assume that you don't
have an svideo
input on the projector, or you would have just used that from the get-go
instead of an
svideo converter.
