I have built a new dedicated theater but could only afford to run this old projector I bought from my work for $20. It only has composite inputs which I have hooked up to a Toshiba 2700 DVD player. The picture quality is not too bad considering its nearly 20 years old but I'm hoping there might be ways to squeeze a little more sharpness and focus out of it. The color is really pretty good and it does a decent job on reproducing blacks.

It puts out a 4:3 picture and then I matte it off to the aspect ratio that matches the disc I am playing. I would love to have it ISF serviced but I'm not sure if they would be willing to work on such an old projector.

I guess my question is would having it serviced be the best thing or are there add on equipment that would make a difference for me like Doublers, Quads, or video processors.

I am not too knowledgeable about the world of CRT projectors other than this one I have.


Here is a link to a photo from my web site and you can see what I am up against!

I have a friend who owns a couple of these. Sorry, video only! For less than the price of a big screen rear projection unit you can step up to a midrange used Barco or Sony and then you can use a scaler or HTPC to get a great picture. Keep reading, you'll catch on!
