For comversion information, just get the module lists from the Excel sheets and see what elements are common, then check the specific parts lists from each model's service manual. You should be able to see the differences relatively easily, I would think. Then you can decide if its worthwhile trying to convert one.
From what I understand the 1209s is very different from its predecessors. So while it may look the same outside there are so many parts inside the projector that have changed that upgrading to the 1209s is simply not reasonable.
Paul gives a good hint on tracking the changes - once somebody looks them up he'll soon see that is just not worth it.
And what is needed to transform a 1609s to a 1209s except for the lenses.
The problem with the 1609s is that it only takes scan freq. from 15 to 17kHz, and 30 to 33 and 60 to 64. So if I for exsample would like to run 720P on 50 Hz it's not possible but with a higher refresh rate it's OK.
I mean that if I want to use a dvd player with 720P thats impossible.
If it can be done that would be a great improvement.

It went a lot noisier after a movie.
Does BG 1209 have two fan speed ; at lease ???
I don't know if mine has two speed fans or what but you are right. I don't hear anything when the movie begins, but when the movie is over the noise drowns out my htpc completely. I was thinking about some kind of gigantic hush box but it would really be ugly.
