    Today we installed a feed from Europe's first High Definition satellite channel, Euro 1080. Although broadcasting does not start officially until 01/01/04, they are broadcasting a variety of HD material all day for test purposes.
    The set top box will output 720p or 1080i as well as downscaling to 576p or 576i
    The quality through a good projector is outstanding. It compares very well with the High Def material we show from D-VHS tapes from the US on our Sim2 projectors.

    Jeff,


    What set-top box are you using and where did you source it ? Do you need a card for the feed ?

    Thanks,

    Sean, the STB is from Zintec in NL.
    It's a Zinwell ZDX-410HD
    No card needed as it's FTA

    Thanks Kramer,

    Excuse my ignorance, I was not aware of a HD section.
