    Dirk the only way you'll get HD onto your PJ is buying using a PC. HD-DVDs don't exist yet ( well the technology exists but its not mainstream in the UK), so your only option is to download HD samples using the websites provided above. If you're going to do this please ensure you have a machine powerful to display them, it requires a powerful machine.

    TBH I think your approach is a bit arse about face. Its abit like shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted, you've already bought your PJ so why try to find faults. IF you really are worried about this type of content then when you were demo'ing your PJ you should have included HD material in your demo material list. Without comparing it to other PJs I'm not entirely sure what your hoping to achieve ? Your PJ will display the source and thats about all your going to be able to say, without any comparison.

    I've had much success playing HD clips from my PC to the PJ. Just make sure you run at max res such as XGA 1024 x 768 over the PCs svga output, and make sure your clips are not heavily compressed :)

    Exactly what i thought. Will just have to wait until i get the XBox 360. I've only got th H30a Projector which won't show true HD but i'm sure it will show an improved picture anyways. Just curious. :rolleyes:

    My comment stemmed from this thread which Dirk started a week ago basically he was concerned about what HD material would look like on his PJ.
