    Hi friends,
    Need some recommendations for an upgrade of my system. I have a Infocus 340B Projector connected to a Panasonic DVD A120 player via an s-video cable. The problem is that my projector does not reproduce images from a progressive scan DVD player. My current player is a non-progressive, 4 years old, standard DVD machine, and I'm sure the tecnology today is much better than 4 years ago.
    Does any have any suggestion of an excellent non-progressive DVD player to sustitute the one I have, or any kind of video processor that enhance the quality of the video signal. The image size is 90" diagonally and the screen is a Dalite 1.2 grain pull down.
    In a very short time I'm going to post some pictures of my HT foo you folks.[​IMG]

    Assuming it takes a VGA input, you can use your choice of

    1. A DVD player with VGA output (like the Skyworth)

    2. A transcoder with a progressive component video player

    3. A scaler/doubler (the iScan is very affordable) with your existing player

    4. A HTPC, with a DVD-ROM drive or Bt848 based board and dscaler running on your interlaced player.
