The joy problem I see is picture quality. I have a nice Pioneer receiver that up converts everything to HDMI if I want it to. When I up convert my laserdisc picture through HDMI the picture comes out smaller than the screen. I imagine because it is compressing the picture to make it appear to have a better resolution.

Sorry meant to say the only problem I see. The iPad over corrects some of the spelling

I wonder if this has something to do with laserdisc being a non-anamorphic letterbox format. Perhaps your pioneer is expecting an anamorphic signal. I'd look for adjustments.

Personally, I've had good luck upconverting the composite output of my CLD-704 to 1080p using the abit scaler in my Denon receiver. The problem with today's digital projectors is that you almost have to scale the signal all the way to the native panel output.

With my fairly low end Sony CRT projector, I would scale to about 800x600, and it was gorgeous.

That's almost certainly what it is. The TV is getting a letterboxed picture in a 4:3 frame. The TV thinks that it is a 4:3 picture, so it pillarboxes the signal (vertical black bars on the left and right). The net result is a windowboxed picture (black bars on all four sides of the letterboxed picture).

pkepneriv: Do you have a zoom function on your scaler? On your TV?
