Hey Fans!


I have an Optoma EP1691 projector that I would like to use with broadcast TV. I know I can use one of those TV tuners with composite connectors to receive OTA reception on the projector, but I am looking for something that will receive 1080i signals as all antenna's do and has an HDMI output.


Kworld produces one but it is not yet available. Maybe Kworld is crap, I don't know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks!

I have a kworld HD set top box. PQ is good for HD sources, not very good at all for SD sources.


The tuner is excellent - very good at picking up weak signals.

The major drawback of the KWorld is no Dolby Digital output; it's L/R analog audio only.

What model Kworld tuner do you use? Also - Ken do you have any experience with Kworld tuners because that is the direction I have been thinking about taking.


I'm not concerned about dolby output, just stereo output.

I have a Kworld SA290 .


I use this box for occasional TV viewing on a CRT computer monitor, and I have no idea how good the PQ would be on a projection system. I think the standard def PQ would be unacceptable. One strong point is the OTA tuner; it's probably the best one I've ever used for weak signals.

Has anyone tried the Centronics 502? The specs look pretty good. Long line of people waiting for it....

See the topic for it.
