please forgive the rookie question, but i've just begun my search into projection systems for my HT. being somewhat short on space (i live in NYC), it seems that the best solution for me would be a LCD or DLP unit that takes little space and can be easily moved. the unit will be run by an HTPC that will also act as a scaler for LD and TV using dTV. i would like to incorporate HDTV via a HiPix or AccessTV card. now, looking into prices on projectors, i've noticed that a number of SVGA models can be had for the $1-2K range (which is all i can afford, as life in NYC is rather expensive)... including the occasional Davis DL450 (and clones). i have read that these particular units perform extremely well (and are even better when paired up with anamorphic lenses), but, due to my interest in HDTV, i am somewhat concerned by the lower resolution. if i were to purchase an SVGA unit, would HDTV be an option? if so, would my choice of formats (i.e. 540p, 720p, 1080i) be limited? i so, what formats could i hope for?
