i've been reading this forum, searching the web, and poring over the users manuals for the answer to this....
i have a panasonic l300u. i just bought the momitsu v880dlx and a DVI cable since i heard so much good about the DVI/upscaling DVD players.
then i noticed that the l300u only has certain resolutions it can support via the DVI cable (VGA480, WIDE480, SVGA, WIDE600, XGA, WIDE768) - none of them 1080i, but . i also noticed that none of these are multiples of the projectors native 1/4 HD resolution (960x540) - they seem to be computer-like resolutions. the manual lists these resolutions with only an "A" rating for the picture, not a "AA" (that is reserved for the 1080i over component or RGB) because "signals are converted by the image processing circuit" - none are multiples of the native rez so interpolation has to be done.
SO, before i go and buy more unnecessary cables, can anyone tell me - given the choice of:
1) skipping the D-A and A-D by using DVI cables BUT a non-native resolution
2) using component cables and thus going thru the conversions but using the 1080i which is a multiple of the native resolution
3) same as (2) but an RGB cable
which should give me the better picture? thanks for any help....
