Hi all, my first posting after 5 yrs as member!
I'm looking for a way to improve the images in my system, preferable for a few hundred pounds, not thousands (have to consider the potential divorce factor here, taking into account all the other toys that I have...)
I'm running a Barco Graphics 808 (not S) with a Quadscan elite, fed by a 2000 vintage Sony DVP-S725D. Screen is a 120" diagonal 16:9 Da-Lite. Just use it for movies, mostly region 2 PAL. 2000 hrs on the tubes, usually use XGA scaling. Picture usually looks great, but recently , started to "wobble" up and down in the bottom half of the picture, only noticeable in a slow movie scene. I'm guessing it could be the quadscan becoming unstable. Would like to upgrade the DVD player anyway, and was wondering if I would be better doing away with the Quadscan and feeding a progressive signal from something like a Denon 1920 DVD player.
Has anyone got any experience or advice on this? I know the Barco G808 is fussy about the sync (requires negative sync I recall). Does anyone know if the Barco will take the progressive signal from a recent Denon model? Or any other suggestions? Any help appreciated.
