    Keen to make an entry to Home Cinema initially to a budget of about £1500.
    Almost settled on the BenQ PB7200 projector however now trying to source a suitable DVD system to maximise projector capabilities. The projector reviews I've read (mostly American) for the BenQ state the best output is achieved with a progressive Scan DVD with Component Video output. The JVC TH-S3 Multiregional DVD Home Cinema System would appear to meet this criteria however its output is stated as 'PAL Digital Direct Progressive Scan Output'.
    Can anyone advise if this output is suit ;) able for the projector or is the PAL component something that will degrade the picture.

    General advice on equipment selection (budget in mind) appreciated.

    Thats a fancy way for JVC to say simply say "PAL Progrssive Scan". If anything this should improve the picture quality, although most people will tell you that PAL progressive is not THAT much of an improvment over PAL interlaced. It is usually better to have it though than not at all ! Go with it, you'll be happy!

    Surely it depends on the hardware in question?

    The projector will have its own deinterlacer on-board and it depends whether this deinterlacer is better than the one in the source.

    It sounds like (to me) that BenQ are admitting to a crappy deinterlacer in their projector!

    As Mark as said really, it is down to the deinterlacer within the projector if this is better than the dvd player then it is best to let this do the deinterlacing from an interlaced signal.

    As regards to the signal from the dvd player you should be able to switch this between interlaced and progressive so can try the two to see which one suits.
