Does "user-definable linear and non-linear resolutions" means that it will be possible to configure the D3 to output HX-1's 1400 x 788 resolution?

The D1 was supposed to be able to output 1400X1050 for the SX21, but it never did work, so even if the answer is yes, I would take it with a grain of salt.

Is there any other dvi dvd player that will output 1400 x 788? How will I benefit from feeding HX-1 with its native resolution instead of 720p? Can I expect a noticeable better picture?

i believe you are better off with an HTPC that can be updated, it is not as easy as a dvd player but you can buy one from AVS for less than a grand.

I am using an HD LEEZA. THat will certainly do that resolution and excellent deinterlacing.......not to mention it is an excellent video switcher.

I was looking for a cheaper solution: just a dvi dvd player which would let me output HX-1's native resolution.


I would like to try this out first and see if I feel the need of an external scaler.

The DVD DVI players typically only output 720p or 1080i. What you need is a bit more scaling than that, which is what an HTPC or scaler would take care of easier. Perhaps a company will come out with a scalable DVD player, but since there would be so many resolutions it would have to support, I'm not sure if it would be cost effective for the company.

Since V has no support, it is very cost effective for them ;)

What about HX-1's internal scaler? How does it performs?


Isn't it true that if you're not going to be able to send the projector its native resolution it would be better to send a 480p signal and let the projector's scaler do all the job? I've just assumed that if I send a 720p than HX-1's scaler will have to work anyway, so isn't just one scaler better than two in the image signal (or it doesn't really matter because it is all done in the digital domain)?

Scaling multiple times is undesireable. If you're not able to send a 1:1 signal to the display, you should send the signal in its native form and let the display do the scaling.


However, scaling up is much more difficult than scaling down, which leads to an exception to this rule.


If you're able to send a higher resolution than the display's native resolution, it's possible that letting the display downscale from an upconverted source might provide better results. If the internal scaler of your display is really bad, this becomes a better option.

Does dvi dvd players allow you to send dvds native resolution through dvi output? As Jason said, don't DVD DVI players typically only output 720p or 1080i?

The Bravo D1 has a service menu that you can enter and set up a custom resolution by entering all of the custom timing information similar to setting up powerstrip. Unfortunately this does not work for every resolution, but it does work for some.

They can send out 480p. They can't send 480i though.

Yes the Bravo D1 can be configured for custom resolutions such as those from JVC PJs.


The issue is though that these PJ's internal processor must be able to accept these custom resolutions. To ensure successful 1:1 pixel mapping, contact JVC to find the DVI input resolution and PowerStrip-like parameters.

The SX21 does accept custom resolutions via JVC specific powerstrip parameters. The problem is, that when entering those parameters into the D1, it defaults to 640X480. I know of no one who has been successful getting the D1 to properly output 1400X1050 to the SX21.


Now I have never tried 1400X788, or the HX-1, so I suppose it is possible that it might work.

Have you been successful doing this with a DVI PC card?

Yes, absolutely, as have many others!

BTW, I have spent hours messing with the D1 to try to get the software to output 1400X1050. I have tried every permutation on the standard powerstrip settings from JVC. Every time when I pressed enter, to accept the settings, the D1 reverted to 640X480. I don't know anyone who made it work.


If you know how to make this work, Jim, I would love to have the secret!
