Just wondered from all you out there that have the LT150 and a progressive scan dvd player how you connecting the two for the progressive scan option???? Also, what kind of dvd player you are using or that you think is best.
I have a Panasonic RP56 which is working great for me. Others had good experiences with Skyworth and Panansonic rp91 too.
I use a VGA to RCA breakout cable ordered from a2zcables. I forget the catalog number. Look into the excellent LT150 faq at http://lastrange.com/ht. It has links to avs forum posts where they discuss the cables to be used
thanks for the great info. I will be looking at some breakout cables and figuring how to get them to where they need to go. Also, will be looking at what dvd player to get, so any more info on them would be appreciated.
If you want a long run (30ft- for ceiling mounted projectors) cable with Component to VGA conectors try AVCable.com . They have it for around $95. It is better than the smaller breakout cables (if you need long runs) because it does not need the BNC adapters, which degrade signal (breakout cables comes with BCN conectors).
i've tried several players with this pj, including the tosh 5109 and the jvc 65gd. while not my favorite player for a variety of reasons, when it comes to the important one-i.e. picture quality, i have to admit the panasonic gives the overall best picture.
in fact, i find it to be good enough to finally quell my handwringing over whether or not to get a htpc.
Bob Wood recommended pccables for the breakout cable and it ended up costing about $50 for 50'.
i'm glad i got more feet than i thought i need at the time, and would suggest anyone else do the same.
if i can dig up my old post i'll try to get a link to the order page for you.
If you already have Video Cables going to to Projector you can use a Breakout VGA Cable with the BNC to RCA Adapters needed to conect to your existent Video Cable. But remember that adapters degrade Video Signal. Check AVcable.com , they have all these options with good prices. You can buy the Breakout and adapters for $20 , but I do not know the results.
