well the difference between the Fury and what I recommended is the fury will allow the player to scale up standard DVD, so you'll only be using one channel with everything going in at 1080i.
Second,your changing where the digital to analog conversion is taking place. With Fury,it's taking the digital signal and changing it straight into RGBHV. With component, the player is converting Digital to YpByR component video,then the Barco is converting that
to RGBHV. So you have 2 conversions instead of 1.
The Fury will give you a better pic as component to RGBHV conversion is really hard to do well although the Barco supposedly does an OK job of it? Fury's are hard to find here in the US,in Europe you can buy directly from the guy in France who makes these. You might need one to force negative sync?The early fury's don't this and would require a Gamma X dongle add-on.
The Fury 3 has a dip switch for this
