OK to start out with I'm a newbie. I've read the newbie section, and did some searches on this problem but I'm not finding exactly what I need so here is what I'm curious about. My setup for reference: Sharp PG-C30XU projector (this is my only computer monitor) Dell PC pentium 4, 1700 MHZ, 256 RAM, XP professional, Santa Cruz sound card, GeForce2 MX with TV out ONKYO 5.1 reciever I read that I can get the picture quality of a $16,000 scaler out of a PC, although specifics were not stated. Is this done with powerstrip and a DVD player program? I found a tutorial on how to use powerstrip and I'm really interested in using it to improve the quality of my DVD picture (don't have anything to get a HDTV signal right now so I'm not worried about it). So am I missing something to get this supposed $1600 scaler picture??
