    I would suggest doing a search on Infocus X1. The projector is widely discussed on here.... not sure if you'll find anything on using it for the X-Box.

    Yeah, do a search. I demo'd an X1 for a week and I'll say this...it's the most unbelievably cool Xbox accessory there is (as long as the room's dark). [​IMG] World Series Baseball in 720p widescreen is breathtaking.

    Thanks for your help. I can't wait. Playing madden and halo
    at 100". man that the best . the best thing is my wife is the one who suggested it. if you knew her she is a very cheap person when it comes to home audio/vid. she thinks everything is the same. but thanks again. oh one thing is there a way to 1080I from my x box to the projector. or is 720 the highest? Thanks again

    I just purchased an X1 from Dell for $799. They had a one day special in the "deals page" section of this forum. Check it out for another one-that was one sweet deal.

    I also use my X1 with my PS2 and it works extremely well. There's nothing like playing SOCOM II on an 80" screen. By the way, if your wife wants to keep up the "traditional" look of the room, you can buy a Da-Lite Deluxe Insta-Theater for about $370. This would keep the room appearance up when the projector is not in use. I mount my projector onto a heavy-dute tripod which also keeps the room up to the wife's acceptance level.

    Good luck,

    David

    Dean, it looks like the X1 may be the one for me. I can control room lighting, so this will probably be good. How much SDE, if any, do you notice for movies? I plan on running a scaler and progressive dvd player, but will probably switch the component video through my HK 520 receiver. One question, I know that some projectors have things like built in DCDI, scaling, and doublers, does the X1 have any thing like this? That could keep me from having to buy a DVDO ISCAN. Also, I have a lot of 4:3 and 16:9 dvds. Will it lock into full mode on all progressive material like my 30 Inch Samsung does, or does it have scaling? Can I zoom a 16:9 image to fill the screen? Thanks
