    Hi

    I´m a newbie ... so ...

    Can anyone clarify the following:

    I have a Sanyo PLV-Z2 projector and my source is the Yamakawa Dvd player which is DVI equipped.

    I have two options ... I suppose:

    1)

    I've got the Yamakawa set to output 720p.
    I suppose that the player is doing all deinterlacing/scaling.
    The projector accepts the signal and has nothing to do with conversions.

    2)

    I set the Yamakawa to output 480i/576i and let the Z2 do all the deinterlacing/scaling.


    Are these options correct ?

    and

    Which is the better option ?

    Thnaks in advance

    All things being equal - hopefully the DVD player will do a better job of scaling the picture than the projector. So the former.

    IIRC the Yamakawa was in the same group as my Momitsu, Bravo D1s etc., and my Momitsu was excellent with the Z2 using the V880's scaler ... so use the DVD to deinterlace/scale. :smashin:

    I havent used that dvd player but i am pretty sure, as it has been said above, that the scaler will be better than the Z2s because imo the Z2 scaler is pretty poor.
