    i have this setup and cannot figure out how to get this setup so that the X1 can automatically output the correct images when switching between SD and HD material... i have gone through the wizard several times and can't seem to find the right tweak. i have call SciAtl and TW and they are of no help... please help... thanks btw i have a 4:3 screen and the SA3250HD

    I have an X1 and the Pace HD box. I have no problem with either SD or HD content.

    Remember that your X1 does not accept 480i into the component (15-pin) input. In my setup, I pass SD channels to the projector over s-video (and switch to the Video input when tuning those channels). I pass HD channels into the 15-pin component input (and switch to the Computer input when tuning those channels).

    I've you're using the component-to-s-video breakout cable to pass 480i component signals into the projector, you won't be able to send HD signals through that input. You need to use the 15-pin connector and switch to Computer input to see them.

    If this issue isn't what's troubling you, then feel free to elaborate.

    well i thought the X1 would automatically adjusts to 4:3 - 16:9 content on the fly, but i guess since this is not an XGA PJ it does not. my buddys LP350 does this but it is XGA. no problem. i still love it.
