Are there any projectors less than 7k that I could watch basketball and football on Direct TV and Cable without motion artifacts - ghost effect, trails etc. My wife and I watch about 50/50 DVD/sports. Thanx!

You are a lucky man to have your wife be so cool :)

For 6-7K the cheaper DILAs (Hitachi new LCOS using UHP bulb) should be great for sports. DLP tend to have motion artifacts so LCOS or LCD light cannons should do fine.

There are lots of options in that price range. I think you'll have less problems with artifacts, trails, etc. than you will have with overall poor image quality.


Taking a standard cable signal (or the sometimes highly compressed DirecTV signal) and enlarging it via a projector will really accentuate the poor quality of the original signal.

I watched MNF on ABC last night on my ~$2000 Sanyo XW15 fed via single composite cable TV and I had no problems with "artifacts", trails etc.

Of course the resolution and overall "sharpness" weren't as nice as progressive DVDs, but the color was great, and the people I had over to watch it were very impressed.

I do zoom the picture down slightly from max when watching TV from ~ 9 feet away, but it looks comparible if not better than most of the RP TVs I've seen. Plus off-center viewing angles look as bright as sitting right in front of it, a big plus for large gatherings.


Just do it.
