    I am thinking of getting one of these units and have been trying to work out which scaler would best partner it. The HD leeza I'd thought would be most suitable doesn't do all resoulutions (notably 960P).

    Could anyone tell me what resolution gives the best pisture with this pj? I understand the argument regarding line having no gaps between them or not overlapping.

    On a 16:9 screen the best resolution for a 1209s is around 800-860P, less if refurbed tubes. 960P will still look nice though.

    Why not 1080p? I thought that was the sole preserve of 9" tubes

    It will look OK, but it's very unlikely you can resolve that many lines on a 16:9 screen with a 1209s. Maybe with a new Cine9.

    Stand 2 feet from the screen. Determine at different resolutions if you can see scan lines. If you can go up a resolution...

    Keep going until you see no scanlines and that res is too high.

    I recently put some of my Video Processors into customers on 1209s. One was old and managed 960p but was better at 720p (much). However one was absolutely gorgeous at 1080p (scaled and deinterlaced D-VHS 1080i in to my Proc and 1080p out).

    See what yours can do.
