Yikes! I didn't think the Samsung SIR-T165 was subject to these dropouts. I have a friend with one of these in the Beaverton area and haven't heard him complain about this issue. KATU is almost...

Try a Channelmaster 4048 UHF antenna (75" UHF Yagi). I have one in the attic with a UHF amp at the antenna (Radio Shack 20 dB) and it works well for very poor signals.

The audio problems with KATU appear to be specific to the Samsung SIR-T150 and T151 set tops. I have been using the SIR-T150 for more than a year, and didn't have audio problems until the end of...

BitJumper,

JP,

There was a demo of these two projectors at the Infocomm show last summer, side by side running several clips in 720p and 1080i HD. There was no comparison - the NEC VT540 was brighter, had...

Thanks for the tips about tapewarehouse.com. They have Maxell, JVC, and Panasonic DVHS cassettes. The Maxell and JVC tapes are $10; the Panasonic tapes are $8 but currently out of stock.

Don,

Any dfferences in long-term reliability of SVHS vs. DVHS tapes (i.e., dropouts, head clogging, etc.)?

I'll try SVHS tape, but it would be nice to find a source for DVHS tape as well.

Man E,

The VT540 has very flexible resizing for the video or S-video inputs, but not for the RGB/YPbPr inputs. You're basically stuck with the original aspect ratio for component inputs.

I had a chance to demo one of the new Plus DLP projectors yesterday. As the Plus rep told me at Infocomm, the new U2-1130 will not sync to HD inputs, either 1080i or 720p. It kept trying to lock...

There are a number of LCD projectors that don't get much discussion here that I think are worth considering: Epson 7250 or 7350, Sanyo XP17N/Proxima 9240, NEC VT540 or MT1045, Mitsubishi X250 or...

Thanks for the input. I wasn't necessarily interested in 1080p output, however. Taking 1080i/720p and scaling to 1024x768 or 1365x1024 (16x9 area) would be fine.

This would be great - keep us posted. I asked them about HD inputs for the Cinema 10 at Infocomm, and was told that they would not be doing it.

Anyone know of a scaler that works with HD signals in? I was told by Focus Enhancements that the Quadscan Pro would not handle HD inputs. Anyone know about the Crytalimage? Anything else?

I might be interested if the projector can display component (YPbPr) HD. Do you know if it can?

Dennis,

Very interesting comments. I saw the InFocus 770 recently and was not bowled over by it, although it certainly did not look bad. I had no idea it was the same projector as the Mitsubishi X300, which...
