if it has component input, why couldn't you ?? Except for PS2, xbox and Cube should look nicely on AE300

If it can project a dvd it can project a dvd. That is what xbox, ps2 and gc essentially are. Whoever said that was seriously wrong.

I think 5thlion is referring to this quote from Defiler:

Quote:
Here's why the AE300 can only game at 640x480:
Most games are 4:3 aspect ratio.
(540/3)*4 = 720
However, 720x540 is not a typical resolution for a game to support. The next notch down from that is 640x480. Q.E.D.

For the HS10:
(768/3)*4 = 1024
1024x768 IS a typical game resolution, so you're good to go with 1:1 pixel mapping.
Not that it can't play games, but just not at the resolution of some of the other projectors.

The AE100,200, or 300 can display in 4:3 mode.... I have a GameCube and StarWars looks great on the AE100. It doesn't look like my 50" Plasma... but playing on a large screen with a great sound system kicks butt... just ask my 6 year old.

5thlion,

If you have an XBOX (or get one) make sure that you get the HD connector for it. I think it is about $20. Then at least rent NBA2K3 and get back to us :) Only downside is that you may have trouble looking at your old video games after that.
