So these DVDs are definitely not progressive, which is 75% of the reason they look so crappy. I am converting them to 24p progressive and doing an anamorphic stretch to 720p, then adjusting the...

Well I'd rather pump it directly to stereo receivers so that I don't need to hook up a computer in both rooms.

I would like an FM transmitter for my computer that would output an FM signal on coax so I can pump it throughout the house without having to worry about short broadcast range. This possible?

A single layer for a 2 hour letterboxed movie isn't that bad. Remember the MPEG-2 encoder is smart enough not to use 25% of the picture, so that ups your bitrate right there. If they AT LEAST made...

"what's so difficult about this?"

Nothing. There's just lots of hotheads here with big egos who think they all need to prove something to the rest of us.

No, from an OTA antenna. I have no interest in the new satellites right now unless they offer more HD programming other than locals.

Diplexers I have plenty of - that's not a problem. But I want to know that the signals can go in opposite directions on the same wire.

Ok, so what would the bandwidth be if all four pairs were used? Would it be enough to carry a full DirecTV satellite signal?

Shoot, are you telling me these products need more than one pair to work? Crap, I thought the bandwidth was high enough with just one pair. Well this clearly won't work. Thanks for the info.

I'd be happy with 1080/24p content upconverted to 1080/60p by the display device. 1080/60p content is just too big and not enough of a difference from 720/60p.
