    I have my 801s DATA running in 1074 x768 mode and I'm delighted with th resuts. Presumaby am going to be even more impressed with a genuine HD instead of the scaled up DVD source.

    As one becomes rather fanatical about improving what is already pretty damn good, I am looking for a set of glass lenses to the replace the plastic ones fitted. I can detect some basic chromatic aberrations in the current image and I guess glass is bound to be better optically??

    Cheers

    P.S. one last question if somebody could answer it for me: is port 3 better than port 5 in terms of image quality? I have seen comments to this effect and wondered if any forum members have experience of this.

    Oh and i have heard that port 3 is sharper but needs a special cable making up...would love to try it but do not fancy spending £80 if no improvement on port 5.
