I've always been told that using a video processor on an RPTV is overkill. Anyone else out there that uses a video processor on their RPTV? I run an RP56 DVD player, so my picture is pretty clean.

Do you have questions about life? Ask me.

I run a Key Digital Leeza to my Pioneer 510, feeding it 540p via RGBHV

Yes it is overkill but here are my reasons:
1) Price was too good to pass up
2) 540p
3) SDI input (have a Panny RP91 w/ SDI)
4) DVI output
5) Firmware upgrades via RS232 port
6) Key Digital's customer service
7) With its flexibilty, I'm ready for that future front projector.

I use a Crystal Image with my 1999 65" Mits. Since this set won't take a progressive DVD player, this is the next best thing. The improvement is great, running at 540p.

If you've got a 480p player, then you probably won't see much improvement with a scaler --at least for DVDs.

Vigatec Dune with a Barco Retrographics 801s. (It also drives a 50" plasma.) I used to use a Faroudja VP-400 for the Barco. Using a scaler on this class of projector is not overkill. However, given that this is basically a Barco 801s Graphics chassis inside a rear projector assembly (using 8" tubes), my experience may not scale to a consumer rear projector using 7" tubes.

I'm waiting for my Omega One to be delivered.It will be used with a Sony 61hs10.I watch a lot of satellite so DCDi will do a much better job than DRC(night and day from what I've read).Also,I will now have 3:2 pulldown which my generation of DRC lacks.
