Yes it can be 1080p but it does lose some quality in the digital to analog conversion where as HDMI is pure digital. Display port could solve this if you could find a source and projector capable.

Unless your interested in 3D, I would get a new bulb. That's a very capable projector as long as its still working. $2000 will get you something a little better with 3D.
