I plan to use the projector for a while until I scrap it for a HD unit with HDMI input.
Neither the BDP-83 or -93 use the video processor for component output; both use a Mediatek decoder chip for that. HDMI and HDMI->DVI are handled the same: the video processor is used on both players.
ABT VRS and Qdeo are different but I am not able to say one is always better than the other for DVD. Qdeo adds new sharpening and noise reduction controls, but those are mostly for low quality sources like Netflix. (Some people do use them for discs).
If it hadn't been for the need to support Netflix, etc, I suspect OPPO would have stayed with ABT VRS.
