I was originally interested in the Optoma HD81, primarily because of the two piece construction that allowed me input all my video sources in the equipment cabinet and have a single HDMI video source output to the projector (RS232 not withstanding). The RS1 now looks like a better fit for my HT, and I have a couple of general questions since this is my first foray into DP territory.
1) Do all of you have VPs or digital A/Vs to handle the multiple inputs or are you running individual HDMI (2), component (1), etc cables from the sources to the RS1?
2) What VP or digital A/V receivers would you recommend if needed.
3) If you use a VP or A/V receiver, do you just use the HDMI output to send native 480i, 1080i, etc so that the RS1 scales, upconverts, and de-interlaces, or do you process in the VP first for display only on the RS1?
I hope these questions are not too mundane for the forum. I am building a HT and need to understand what equipment I need to purchase.
