    I'm looking for a projector and video processor (to handle line
    doubling and such). I would like a minimum of 110" screen but
    preferably larger. The projector must do widescreen and 4:3
    (widescreen native) and HDTV standards. I would also like to be able
    to plug a computer into the projector along with my other video
    sources (dvd, vhs, cable/digital cable, satalite). I recently saw the
    Runco DR300c DLP projector with PFP controller ($12,995) and it was
    very impressive as was the bigger brother VX 1000c ($16,995.00). This
    was in a store where I'm sure they mark things up insane amounts but I
    have a feeling these projectors are still out of my price range. I
    would like to stay

    Hi Ron,

    Sounds like you have a great environment for installing a FPTV system. And if you've already been looking at the Runco then you probably have the budget to do something really nice.

    You'll probably get some good input from folks here at HTF, but in general AVS will have a lot more FPTV traffic. If you haven't, consider posting your question(s) in their >$5K Digital Projector forum, Video Processor forum, and/or maybe their Screens forum. You should get a lot of great feedback.

    Good luck,

    Mike

    Hmmm, a fair number of criteria. Off the top of my head (and not including DLP as you requested, at least for now), the Boxlite Cinema 20Hd comes to mind for 1035i,1080i,720p,575i and DVI, being native 16x9 and coming in around the $5K level, and leaving you money for a great Firehawk screen.

    I will chime in again tomorrow with some other options including DLP which you should not dismiss.

    I'm not saying necesserily no DLP just that I think it might be too pricey but I could be wrong. Thanks for your input and I'll be anxiously awaiting your other reccomendations.
