The benefit of Madvr is also full 0-255 dynamic range without any clipping or crushing- if you keep the entire chain consistent from the initial processing in the HTPC all the way to the screen you will be rewarded with significantly better contrast. Since Most LCD's crush blacks sometimes anyways, I'd think minimizing this would actually help given your projector. If the black is already crushed before the signal hits your projector your are in trouble. I can see the difference on my desktop screen, but it's not exactly a contrast champion either. The guys with the JVC projectors seem to scream it's better for what it's worth...
