Having only just recently got back into the home cinema "groove" after 4 years, I'm getting thoroughly confused!!!!! Some of this may be covering old ground, but I need help! Ok, this is my problem.... I'm planning on buying a Panasonic PTAE-100E projector, and I've been reading lots of the threads on connections/DVD player/HTPCs etc. I have a Pioneer 646a DVD player, which I only recently bought (not even thinking about LCD projection then, and my RP TV is quite old) for £300. Now many people are saying that progressive scan makes a HUGE difference for this and other LCD projectors. Clearly my DVD player hasn't got this feature. Also, people are saying component video is the best way of connecting DVD player/projector. On the back of my DVD player, I have the following: RGB-scart out Composite video out S-Video out So, given what I have, is my DVD player going to be up to the job? I'm assuming I would need to connect S-video for the best picture? I've read that s-video on the panny gives a horrible picture.....but of course it comes down to the eye-of-the-beholder. [I'm going to try and get an audition somewhere to see for myself, but I would appreciate general views on this]. Oh and any cables I use will need to be 10m long. The last thing I want to do is to replace my DVD player 4 weeks after getting it and wasting all that cash!!! I'm going back to the shop tomorrow, to see if they would be willing in any shape or form to swap/part-ex this player for possibly the Toshiba 510 which I believe is progressive scan capable? [my player was ex-demo anyway which may help, even more so if I buy my projector from them]. Advice would be appreciated, this is giving me a headache!!!! Cheers Smurfin PS Are the PTAE-100's still in short supply in the UK or are they easy to get hold of?
