VGA to RCA and then back again Problem?

  1. My new toy is a Dell Projector 1800mp.I mounted this on my living room ceiling after redoing the ceiling and installing a rapid run video cable in the ceiling. The cable is terminated with RCA jacks (Red, Blue, and Green). all work.well with my digital cable box but my XP media center is not being picked up by the projector. I tested my laptop and the same thing happens. I tested the laptop direct into the projector with a VGA cable and all works then. All cables were tested and are fine.
    Do you think the problem is going from VGA to RCA then RCA to VGA again?

    Thanks for listening
