    Hello,[​IMG]
    I have not posted here in a while.[​IMG] Hope that I can get a REAL answer.
    I have a Infocus 7205 projector[​IMG] which when looking at it's specs I believed it has the capability of 1080p using HDMI and a Sony 550 Blu Ray player (in the process of acquiring).
    I called Infocus and there support personnel was very hard to understand.[​IMG] I thought that all I would have to do is buy an M1 adapter to HDMI for the rear of the 7205, run my HDMI from my Processor to the projector and I would be in heaven.[​IMG]
    Not so according to Infocus support. [​IMG]
    According to them I would not be able to display any picture using a HDMI cable to the 7205.[​IMG] My only choice would be to use component with the Blu Ray.
    There web site carries HDMI cable and the M1 adapter for my projector yet I would not receive a 1080p picture?

    If it is true about the use of the HDMI cable with the 7205 how good will a 1080p display be with component?

    Thanks Frank [​IMG]

    the 7205 is a 720p projector

    I am 99% sure it will not accept a 1080p signal via HDMI or component. You will have to feed it 1080i. It should accept it via HDMI or component and there should not be a difference in the quality of the picture (HDMI vs component), or not significant anyways.

    Good luck!!
