If you're using an HTPC, you can let the computer do all of the scaling (anamorphic, letterbox, 4:3) and just use one input and memory on the projector.
As for scaling, using ffdshow helps a lot. Also, scaling artifacts are removed if you stick to multiples of the orginal DVD resolution of 720x480. So my 1440x720 is 2X the original H rez and 1.5X the V rez (sure, 2X the V rez would be better but 960 lines is pretty tight on my small screen).
Also, when you mention you had tearing, that was because of the HTPC right? (the 9500 should handle that resolution just fine).
The Ampro should have handled it but it didn't, probably because the HVPS was going out. I would hope that it was not the HTPC, 9800 Pro card should have been ok with that rez. I will try a couple of different rez for dvd and see what the lens can resolve
