Don't do it. If you can't afford 1080 now, nothing magical is going to happen to make 4K prices plummet later. Get a modern PJ.

There's the mechanical component I was expecting. Thanks. Still not really 4K. Maybe better than others but still shifting a new image by half pixels isn't the same as independent full pixels. Now if...

Yeah, you are right, I was in a hurry as usual. So that makes it worse. Instead of starting at 1491, it's 1444. (1920 / 1.33)

Instead of 1920 vertical resolution, you downscale the source to...

@"720"
16:9 no lens 1280x720

@"1080"
16:9, no lens 1920 x 1080
16:9 with lens 1491 x 1080 AND you added scaling artifacts to shrink before expansion.

1920-1491 = 429
1491-1280 = 211
