    Can someone please explain the difference between 1080 and 720.

    I have a Sony D50HRT projector and I am interested in investing in a JVC d- theater video. I called on of the suppliers over in the UK who told me the D50 is only capable of 1080 and I would really need a 9inch tubed projector capable of 720.

    I must admit to complete and utter confusion. Anyone out there able to clear things up?:confused:

    You can read about here and here

    As for the PJ - the Sony D50 (7inch) PJ will do 720P or 1080i but a 9inch PJ (Sony's G90, 1292 or the Barco 1209s) will fully resolve 1080P.

    Be very careful running a JVC deck with a Sony D50, it will not work!!!

    You will need a transcoder to send the unit RGBHV and even then the PJ cannot resolve tri-level sync. You need a very good transcoder such as the up and coming MP-5 from Mike Parker, or alternatively a scaler such as the HD Leeza. Key digitals transcoders will not work.

    Incompatability with CRT and tri-level sync is VERY common.

    X3ELS, are you sure about the incompatibility of the JVC deck with the D50? It worked flawlessly with my G70, and I believ the input board is the same.
