Hiya,

This is my first post here so be kind! http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/smile.gif


Anyway, i have recently bought a DLP Vidikron Helios Projector and i was wondering if anyone could help me out.


What i am asking is which DVD Player on the market could i get to best compliment the best elements of this projector?


What i want is to get the best DVD player to suit my Projector. Ie., If the projector can handle progressive scanning, whether i can use the RGB inputs for DVD players as well as computers and so on.


As you can tell i dont really understand too much of the technical info related to my projector, so any help is appreciated.


These are the statistics for my projector:

sequential light modulation.

One DMD modulates red light; the second is for the green and blue spectrum.

I don't see too many options with this projector.


Is this the one? http://www.projectorcentral.com/proj...fm?part_id=806


Your specs show that it takes component input. The component input will give you the best picture, S-video is second best, composite is last.


I don't think the projector will take anything higher than 480i. If it were me, I'd look for an inexpensive DVD player with component output.

Your best bet would probably be the Skyworth 1080P DVD player as it outputs progressive via VGA.


Check the treades in the DVD player section abou the 'Ultimate DVD'.
