    I have an epson [3 LCD] projector native res. 1024x768. it also has a line doubler inside so s-video and rca[composite] look better. currently, I run a regular dvd player thru s video to my projector. now common sense says if I was to go HTPC, then I would use my monitor out. and get 1024x768 res. my question is, how much better would that be over what I have setup now? wouldnt the computer just scale the dvd res. up to 1024 which is what my projector does with the s-video sinal anyway. if I am missing something, someone please let me know. basically, which way will the imnage look sharper. ps my screen size is 12' diagonal.

    Is your regular DVD player progressive scan?

    yes it is, but my projector does not accept prog scan info [ie. no component in, just composite and s-video and monitor cable] but ive been told that my projector converts the signal within itself [not sure of the ratio though]. its an epson powerlite 710c.

    You can probably use your PC to scale the image to 1600 x 1200. I think that projector can accomodate such a hookup. This is probably a question for the HTPC area.
