Right or wrong - after days of messing. Setup the LT150 with

I realize this should be in the Video Processor Section - believe me, the traffic is light there. I have been searching for these answers for 2 weeks. I know I'm not perfect with these but they gotta be close. Any comments and suggestions?

Jim; Have you done, or are you capable of doing ,an a/b comparison with prog. dvd player vs. quadscan. If you have access to an HTPC please A/B this also. Your observations are eagerly anticipated, as no one seems to be posting any comparisons of the LT150 w/a quadscan or crystal image vs.the htpc and pro dvd. Thanks.

Sorry-Denon Non-Progressive DVD, no HTPC. The Quadscan has been very difficult for me to set up. Either I don't comprehend instructions or the owners manual is very difficult-or both. I hate having to run through so many menus and I wish it simply had a SELECT and ENTER key. Just when I get it right I screw it up and have to start all over. This list above has been a life saver to get me back again. That's the bad part. The picture is really good. Comparing to HDTV being a 10 the DVD is 8 and over the air DSS 5 or 7 depending on the bandspread of the satellite channel. One interesting thing is I can't get an acceptable 16:9 picture on the Hughes Satellite DSS RCVR - perfect 4:3 using a 4:3 signal from DSS however if I record the same presentation on a S-VHS Panasonic I can get a wonderful 16:9 picture from a 4:3 DSS salellite signal on playback. This has driven me up the wall. What should have been a 10 minute set up has turned into many days and hours. Life should not be this complicated.

Thanks Jim,


My problem is that here we don`t have any alternatives to test except for the matte white. I will buy the screen (a tensioned 69"x92" unit) without seeing it before. But for all comments in this forum, I am leaning for a matte white unit (my second choice is the CinemaVision), but it seems it would be better a matte white unit.


Thanks.. y saludos a tu esposa,
