I'm finding it frustrating that even advanced projectors like the Mitsubishi X-400 or Infocus LP-350 basically don't work with Progressive DVD if you want to take advantage of their anamorphic squeeze features. Basic issue is that if you go in through s-video, the projector will recognize it as video and do squeeze the stretched 4x3 picture back to size, but if you go in through DVI or VGA ports (most require Component to VGA conversion) they think it's a computer in and won't touch it. Thank god my Crystal Image will do the work for me. Still, I'd hoped to get away from a separate box.


Once I get a Panamorph, though, I shouldn't need any intelligence in the projector itself.


Anybody know projectors which can handle true component in and/or vga and treat it like video?

The sony 10ht handles anamorphic DVD through the component inputs with out issue. As it is a native 16:9 projector it works just like a widescreen tv. Since the projector is naturally anamorphic, with this projector you will have to do more like a non anamorphic compress if you put in non anamorphic dvd, which the projector provides through ample aspect options, otherwise every one will look short and fat. I assume the sanyo pvl-60 behaves the same way as it is also a native 16:9 projector. I love the 10ht projector for ease of use and great color and lots of resolution. If I move between 4:3 and 16:9 material I have to make no changes. The projector automatically puts up black bars on the left and right keeping a consistent picture height. And many of the issues people have had with black level and contrast have "hacks" that mitigate the problem.
