I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I bought this pj for more than $5000...


Can anyone tell me if my NEC LT100 DLP projector can handle 1080i, 720p, and 480p??


I'm thinking about getting a Sony HD-200(DirTV), a Samsung 160(DirTV), or a DishNet 6000u and need to know what this machine will handle.


It is a 1024 x 768 native DLP pj and it will accept signals via RGB 15-pin cord (or componect y/cb/cr, but that's not what I want to use).



I've heard of people connecting it to a RCA DTC-100....



Anyone??

Thanks,

Jeff

Jeff,


Do a search for LT100, you will get many hits. People have posted how amazing HDTV looked in their LT100 (I recall pics of Leno on a specific post). There's plenty to read about regarding unit in this forum (AVS).

As someone that had an LT100 for about a year, I'll chime in and say that it supports 1080i and 480p.


It handled 1080i from my E* 6000 perfectly. I was amazed by the quality of the 1080i image, having previously viewed just DVDs on it.

That was before I got a DILA though.;)


In fact, immediately after hooking up the E* 6000 to the NEC, I remember calling my wife down into the basement just to show her how watching CBS's 'The District' in HD looked liked we were looking at the characters through a window. :)


IIRC, it had some problems with 720p from the E* 6000, so I just left it on 1080i. Besides the 6000 will automatically convert 720p to 1080i, so that's not really an issue.

My Lt100 worked flawlessly on hdtv as well.

That's correct, it also has problem working with RCA DTC100, but it works perfect with Panasonic HD receiver.

This is due to the NEC expecting the signal in component and not RGB, an [RGB->component] box will fix this.

So will the LT100 accept the Y/Pb/Pr signal?? I thought it would only accept the Y/Cb/Cr signal (which isn't HD)... ????

I have a up-1100 and a DTC100 and it works great. However, before I got my ISCOII and used the wide mode, I noticed a vertical line in the image that was about 3/4 of the way up the screen (minor tearing). I never see this in full mode with the lens.


here is a post that may be of some interest - factory software that can be used to program custom gamma tables. There is also talk about a firmware update for the UP-1100 that fixes the tearing problem, however I don't think that full compatibility with the LT-100 was ever fully verified.


every once and a while it take a minute or two to sync to a std-def picture, but will kicks in after 20-30 sec.


Did not know there was a problem with the LT-100 and 720p. Anyone using a UP-1100 with 720p? always wanted to test out a 720p signal to see if there would be a noticeable pq difference without the pj having to deinterlace.
