Hi, I recently joined the forum, and have been impressed with the overall quality and quantity of the advice that i have been reading. I have a data projector with vga inputs and I am currently using my computer to watch dvd's. However, I need to know whether a htpc can provide the best possible image. Until recently i have been reading articles based on progressive scan and know the benefits, so my question to you and to everyone that responds, is does a htpc provide the better quality image than using a good quality progressive scan player?(Sorry this a bit long, but I need advice as Vince ie administrator stated that a good htpc can provide much smoother filmlike images than progressive scan dvd players. Please someone or anybody share your thoughts with me on this.
