About the only good thing I came away from the Internet startup company with a few years ago was the office DLP Infocus projector. It's a model LP330. Very small. It has S-video in, component, and 15 pin from a computer. This is your typical projector used in a business environment.
I've hooked it up to my A/V receiver with the S-video and shot the picture up on a sheet and I'd have to say it looks pretty good to me. Great to have a football game with a 10' or 12' foot diagonal screen!
I'm thinking about investing in a screen that I can hang from the ceiling when I want to watch it. Anyone know anything about these projectors? How good of resolution would I be getting compared to what else is out there? One downside I can see is that when the bulb burns out it will cost me more than $400 to replace it. Is that typical?
Excuse my ignorance. I really belong in the direct view forum but thought I'd pop over here and see if I have a gem or a piece of garbage!
That is indeed the projector I have. Thanks for the link. No component input is correct. It looks to be capable of 1024x768 but what would that be expressed in lines of resolution? Is that roughly the equivalant of 720p??
Sounds like it's nothing to write home about but that I wouldn't totally get laughed off the block if I set it up!
I'd suggest that you rig up a PC to drive it, as S-Video has never been the best source for a PJ. If you have one handy, drop in a DVD player and a TV Tuner card, and use software to process the signal through your DB15 connector. It's an XGA projector, so I think you'd have a nice setup without spending too much.
