Hi there,


I recently bought myself an Infocus X1 second hand (cheap buy, for I have little money


So, my question, what DVD player (with upscaling and USB input) is a good choice in combinatiuon with the X1?


I know the X1 doesn't emit a 720p or higher image, but I've been told it does produce a better image when a 720p (or 1080i) signal is fed into the projector.


What is a affordable choice?


thanks in advance,

Hi Inc. Welcome to AVS!


The AVS forums are divided into various categories, and it can be tough sometimes to figure out the best area to get your question answered. Your Infocus X1 is considered a front projector, and you've wandered into the rear projector (RPTV) forum. RPTV's look like TV's. Questions about front projectors are best asked in the front projector forum where other enthusiasts are more likely to be found.


But you're not really asking a question about your projector; you're asking a question about a DVD player to match with your projector, so that question would be best asked in the DVD player forum where you can get the best info on standard def & upconverting DVD players.


But if you want to feed your projector 720p or 1080i output, you might get curious about Blu-ray players at some point and have questions about their limitations of output connectors that would be compatible with your projector. That info would best be found in the Blu-ray player forum. Confusing, eh?

A very important factor in presenting a DVD image with any projector is the conversion and deinterlacing - the X1 performs these functions very well. I'm using a Panasonic DVD-F87 and the picture is stunning. The X1 does conversion to progressive scan better than most DVD players, so use the ordinary interlaced output.
