A currently own a VPLCX10. I'm currently using it with a 480i DVD player thru component input. I'm planing to buy a DVD-player with progressive output (such as the Pioneer DV-444) with a SCART output. The manual says that the RGB input will accept everything from 15k thru 90k. I'm pretty sure that the component input accepts 480i signals only. The question is: will it accept a 480p signal from a device with a SCART interface? After all, a PC video signal at 640x480 is a 480p. The only difference is that with component input the SYNC is on GREEN, and with SCART you have a dedicated CLOCK line.
I had Sony CX1 (550 lumens, XGA LCD). It does NOT accept 480p nor support ceiling mount. To go progressive, HTPC is your BEST option. It will support prog. DVD players or external scalers/doublers with RGB or VGA output. It has a decent built-in doubler/scaler. CX10 is the souped up version of the CX1 with more lumens and ceiling mounting; however, it's still a data-grade PJ without native 480p support.
