I have posted recently about my findings\n\nwith the toshiba MT-7 and can now add the\n\nuse of a DEUCE HD scaler to the list.\n\n\nComponent DVD Player interlaced\n\n\n: very good contrast, detail is good, a little noisy,\n\ncolour accuaracy takes some tweaking. A few artifacts\n\non diagonals and moving shots.\n\n\nComponent DVD player progressive\n\n\n: Better brightness, detail better still, still a little noisy.\n\n\nHTPC\n\n\n: Best resolution is 1280 x 960 into 1280 x 720 panel,\n\nfeed on thru (1-1) pixel mode. Run at 75hz for PAL, 72 for NTSC.\n\nPicture detail is the best this method, colour accuracy\n\ngreatly improved. Best combo RADEON + winDVD.\n\nProblems with tearing that will not go away with any\n\nrefresh rate, 60hz keeps tearing stable.\n\n\nComponent DVD player with ISCAN.\n\n\n: Artifacts more or less completely gone in 480p.\n\nUnfortunately MT-7 wont suport 625p for PAL.\n\n\nComponent DVD player with DEUCE HD 720p\n\n\n: Similar results with ISCAN but less noise. Run at\n\n720p, fine in NTSC at 60hz but projector won't lock\n\nto 50hz 720p, similar problem with the SHARP 9000\n\nI believe.\n\nDeuce Seemed to be smoother picture than the ISCAN\n\nalthough there was a little flicker with the DEUCE\n\nfor some reason.\n\n\nSo in summary progressive makes a decent improvement, the only\n\nway of getting native 720p is through the deuce HD using component.\n\nOr a computer at 1280x960 through RGB but gives tearing.\n\n\nNo way of getting PAL progressive at this time.
