If I want to watch movies from a Blu-ray player... I couldn't with the HD1000U, HC1500...right? Is all blu-ray 1080p?


Just want to make sure before i make my final decision on the HD65.

Of course you can watch blu-rays with the hc1500 or any 720p projector for that matter. You just set your blu-ray player to output at 720p (or 1080i). And blu-rays will still look great even at 720p, a vast improvement over SD DVD.


And I'm 99% sure the hc1500 accepts a 1080p signal anyway. No different than the hd65 - it accepts a 1080p signal, but it is still going to display it at 1280x720 no matter what.

Didn't know the signal from the player could be changed to 720P... I assumed output was 1080p only. Projector Central has the HC1500 labeled as not being able to accept a 1080p signal. Thats why I asked. Being able to switch the player to 720p answers my question.

if the Projector is 720p, should the 1080i setting on the player(i have ps3) be disabled and force it to go out 720p instead?

Yes if you want to force the PS3 to send 720p. My HC1500 looks sharper and more detailed using 720p from the PS3. To test it just bring up a BD menu and look at the text. 720p looks much better to me. I'm sure others prefer 1080i. Just choose the one that looks best to you.

The only problem I've had with my HD1000 and Blu-ray is that once I started watching them it's hard to stop.


BD has advantages on ANY display, no matter what resolution, over standard DVDs.
