Hi,


I want to buy a new DVD player. I was thinking to buy a descent one (Denon 1910, HD 950,etc...) to hook to my infocus 4805. Learning slowly about DVD player/TV/projector technicalities, I was wondering if in fact I can just buy a budget one. My idea is that the projector as already a de-interlacer cheap built-in, so I don't need a DVD player to do the job. I know it's better to perform it on the digital source, but I believe the difference is very small. If I understand the things correctly, I don't even need a player with a progressive scan option, as the projector will do that for me as well. So at the end, I just need a DVD player, with a component output. All DVD player with DVI will have the de-interlacer feature in it. So where am I wrong? I know you pay what you get at the end, but I found a bit odd to have a projector with all its fancy chips, and hooking a DVD player to it with exactly the same bits.

I wouldn't call the Faroudja processor in the 4805 cheap. :)


A good 480i dvd player (or progressive player with progressive off) would work great on the 4805.

Actually only the more expensive DVI DVD players have the same quality Faroudja chip as the Infocus, and even then the hardware/software implementation is not nearly as good. There has yet to be a digital player out that did not have some tradeoff with the SP4805 - 480i component well calibrated will usually beat it.
