    Video source is Malata PS DVD player. Picture taken with cheap 1.3 megapixel camera with auto exposure only. I am going to try to get some better pictures with a better camera because this camera dosn't quite do it justice.

    That is very graphically sharp!
    Tell us about your projector.
    CRT? Price? Set-up?

    You are looking at about a 2000 dollar setup there.
    CRT projectors are very cheap now becuase alot of schools and government agencies are trading their big CRT's for smaller LCD's. But CRT have a superior picture. My projector was 22,000 brand new in 1996. I paid only 1700.00 for it about 8 months ago.
    I coupled it with a 265.00 dollar progressive scan DVD player (Malata N996). The screen is homemade and cost me about a hundred bucks.
    Here is a little info on the projector it is about half way down the page. It will scan all HDTV resolutions including 1080P.

    As for the setup this is my first CRT I am happy to say I did it all myself. With alot of help from the guys on AVSForum. If you have a room that can be completely dark this will blow away any RPTV you can get for the price. Let alone a 5000 dollar LCD projector.
