I have been using an old projector (that I wanted to upgrade) with a progressive scan DVD player. No problems outputting 480p over component. However, there is a new crop of upconverting dvd players that can output up to 1080i over component inputs. My question is that, will my ancient projector (Sharp XG-E500U) will be able to display a 1080i image?

I have checked projector central about the projector's compatibility with with HDTV resolutions but all I got was asterisks.

Has anyone tried outputting 1080i to an old projector? My projector doesnt have problem with 480p but I just dont know if it can take 1080i.

Anyone tried it or at least have an idea if it will take it?

Thanks a lot.
