I don't know what is better to get.


I'm getting a LT154(LCD) which is LT155 brother without MLI.



I've been look at either CSC-1000 from www.tvone.com

which converts SVideo or RCA to VGA or XGA. It claims with its Vertical Temporal Filter removes jagged edges and other de-interlacing artifacts for video motion sequences.
(Click here to read more about it)


Or should I get the DVDO Iscan Plus or V2 which I believe everyone should know.


To me the CSC-1000 make since. Since the projector is really like a computer monitor that just project the image and the CSC-1000 takes an analog signal and converts it to VGA, which it should give me a better picture. Where the Iscan is for TV (correct me if I am wrong about Iscan).


I doudt the CSC-1000 can do 480p but will it give me a better picture than the Iscan that can do 480p? And if I get the Iscan will I see these so called artifacts or not.


Price CSC-1000 799.00

Ican Plus or V2 499.00 / 699.00


I don't want to use HTPC I want to use my existing HT.


Thank for any help.

I didn't find a LT154 listed at the NEC web site. The native res for the LT155 is 1064x768. You would want to get a scaler that scales to the native resolution of your projector for the best picture. Something along the lines of a Quadscan should do.

Here is the specs on LT154 from NEC
www.nec-pj.com/dutch/g3_lt154.htm


as you can see this projector is for another country, but will work in the US.


I've been reading about the DVDO Iscan Pro.


I found out Scalers or for Non-interlace

and DVDO Ican is for interlace.


So are the Projector interlace or Non?

A lot depends on your source.

From reports on this forum the NEC LT series has a fairly decent de-interlacer and good scaling, probably better than this CSC-1000.

If you watch mainly DVDs, put your money in a good progressive DVD player.

If you need to de-interlace the output of a SD satellite receiver or LD player, your best bet is the ISCAN or better quality scaler.

If you really want to try the CSC-1000, get a 30 day unconditional return agreement.

Thanks Ref, I think I am leaning more to the Iscan since I will be using Satellite.


Then which one Iscan Plus, Plus V2, or Pro.

The Pluses are automatic. Where the Pro has control on contrast and color. But has anyone tried either one on any of the NEC LT projectors. And is there a benefits for getting either one?

I don't know the pros and cons of the various models or what you can expect to pay.

You might first try a search for iscan on the video processors forum,

then if you can't find your answers, ask the experts there.
