Just want to get a feel for what type of display devices people are hooking their Wii's up to. Does one have an advantage over the other? I guess the major devices would be:
  1. Plasma
  2. LCD
  3. RPTV (DLP, LCoS)
  4. Other
I would like to see where people stand and what is the most popular display people are using.

When it comes to home theater and all the attributes of this projector or that projector some people have chosen to take the blue pill.

What if you have it hooked up to a crappy hold standard definition TV, because you don't necessarily feel it deserves a place alongside your high-definition consoles and gear? Are all standard tube televisions under "Other"?

Sony KD-34XBR960 tube HDTV. And it looks great!

I selected "Other" by the way.

I have an LCD-based RPTV, so I picked the later. I guess I selected the right one...?


Sub-1080p/60fps is not next-gen.

*iScan VP50 (video processor) for 480i and 480p content.
*Micomsoft XRGB-2+ for VC 240p content, then piped through the VP50.

After the VP, DVI to either a projector at 720p or a 24" LCD monitor at 1080p. It looks excellent in all cases.

Previously 42"plasma
Currently 57" DLP

Plasma picture was nice a crisp, DLP picture is huge and slightly fuzzy on the menu but great in game.
