I have posted recently about my findings with the toshiba MT-7 and can now add the use of a DEUCE HD scaler to the list. Component DVD Player interlaced : very good contrast, detail is good, a little noisy, colour accuaracy takes some tweaking. A few artifacts on diagonals and moving shots. Component DVD player progressive : Better brightness, detail better still, still a little noisy. HTPC : Best resolution is 1280 x 960 into 1280 x 720 panel, feed on thru (1-1) pixel mode. Run at 75hz for PAL, 72 for NTSC. Picture detail is the best this method, colour accuracy greatly improved. Best combo RADEON + winDVD. Problems with tearing that will not go away with any refresh rate, 60hz keeps tearing stable. Component DVD player with ISCAN. : Artifacts more or less completely gone in 480p. Unfortunately MT-7 wont suport 625p for PAL. Component DVD player with DEUCE HD 720p : Similar results with ISCAN but less noise. Run at 720p, fine in NTSC at 60hz but projector won't lock to 50hz 720p, similar problem with the SHARP 9000 I believe. Deuce Seemed to be smoother picture than the ISCAN although there was a little flicker with the DEUCE for some reason. So in summary progressive makes a decent improvement, the only way of getting native 720p is through the deuce HD using component. Or a computer at 1280x960 through RGB but gives tearing. No way of getting PAL progressive at this time.
