    If a DVD player I am considering states it outputs 480p what will the resolution be when fed to my PJ(Sony VW11HT) via component. Max resolution on PJ is 1366 x 768.

    480p means NTSC progressive, it'll be outputting 720x480, so the projector will up-scale to its' native size before displaying. PAL progressive is 720x576p.

    Nope. The same. All standard definition video is 720 x 480 (NTSC) or x 576 (PAL).

    Matt,

    You will only get 480i or 576i via S-video, not progressive.

    Totally depends on the quality of the deinterlacer in the player compared with that in the projector. If the projector is better then you'd feed it interlaced and ignore the progressive option in the player.

    Im pretty confident the deinterlacer in the Sony projector will be superior to the DVD one (DVP-CX985V) I guess it will be a case of suck it and see!!

    As my AE100 PJ is 852 x 480. Does that mean PAL is down scaled to 480 from 576? So NTSC should look better (which it does to me)?

    Yes, PAL will be scaled. Whether this scaled-down PAL would look worse than non-scaled NTSC would largely depend on the quality of the scaler, AIUI down-scaling is a lot less likely to introduce artifacts than up-scaling .. in the case of the AE100 your observations would seem to show that its' scaler does degrade the image noticeably.

    Thanks for the reply. PAL still looks fantastic but I always have preferred NTSC.
