Please try using an HTPC with special software for movies playback. Before I had the Pioneer upscaled dvd player for movies, but the picture was too dull , not sharp and not happy at all. After using an HTPC with bluray software, I was blown away with the result. The colors were great & more pop, great improvements on shapness, contrast & brightness. So therefore sometimes If the projector can't give you the end result as what you expected, there's a way for that matter.
