This doesn't answer your exact question, but I have a Sony 1272 that I am now feeding with a Toshiba SD4700 Progressive Scan DVD Player. I am very happy with the picture quality. I bought the Key Digital KD-CTCA2 Transcoder to use convert the component signal to VGA and will also have a computer monitor hooked up to the second VGA output for the convenience of not always having to turn on the projector for minor things. I also have an HTPC but have got tired of tweaking. The HTPC picture is better, but since the 1272 sweet spot is only 600P, I can live with the DVD quality and ease of use.
