    I have a Zenith CRT video projector. The only input is a BNC connection. What type of cabling would give the best picture quality. Right now I have cheapo DVD and VCR, but I do all the switching through my Integra DTR-7.4. The outputs are the standard RCA or S-Video and composite. I know I have to use some kind or kinds of adapter(s). Right now I use an RG-6U cable with an RCA adapter out of the reciever and a BNC adapter to the projector. Picture is good but am I missing out on better, Thanks.

    Moving to Displays. What are you using as a video scaler?

    Johhny: What projector is it exactly?

    And I am assuming like most CRTs except the newest ones, your has composite, s-video, and RGB only, and no component video inputs. Again, depends on the projector, if it's an old video-grade model, than you might be getting all you're gonna get out of it. If it is data or graphics grade then you'll want to try to push much higher resolutions via some kind of scaler/processor.

    I also strongly suggest you consult the CRT projector forums at AVS.

    You may want to use a transcoder to change component into RGB if you want to run 480p for instance.

    Anyway, cleaning lenses is easy, just be careful not to scratch them, ESPECIALLY if they have coatings/color correction. Here is a good info link on how to do it right:

    Although that you note that things look hazy is a little odd.

    I'm not familiar with that PJ, and i don't know how similar it is to the pro-900, so i can't really help you beyond that.
