    Hi,

    I've been following some of the threads here with interest, I'm very close to putting my hand in my pocket for a PT AE100 and Lecson 1000..

    Can somebody just clear up a couple of points, how do I connect the Lecscon to th AE100 to get both NTSC and PAL PS ??

    I'm guessing with the component out, but I've got a little confused with all the different connector and PS mode..

    Thanks

    Go for the Panny by all meens, but hold of on the Lecson, it has a streaking problem with progressive scan.
    To answer your question, the Lecson has componant out just for progressive scan, you need a set of componant leads to connect from there to the Projector.
    If you read through my earlier threads on the Panny with the Lecson you will know what I am talking about.
    I believe Cyberhome are bringing out a progressive scan player soon, and it should be cheap.

    Excellent, thanks for that :)

    Hoping to pickup an AE100 as soon as they come back into stock, anybody got any recommendations for screens (remote) to use with this PJ..

    Be sad to see my old Tosh go though, its a great box :) Much better than the Sony KP41DS1 it replaced :mad:

    I put an advert in the "for sale" forum and had one interesting nibble already. If you know anybody that might want a nice RP
    Tosh point them in my direction...

    Yeah I had my KP41 for about three months, bit of an impulse purchase :eek: It had really bad streaking across the screen e.g.
    if you had a dark background and a light object in the foreground it would band across the screen !!!

    Sony came out about 3 times to try and fix it but they didn't get anywhere really. Returned it to the shops I bought it from as "not of merchantable quality". They weren't to upset as I bought the Tosh and a decent Sony DVD Player..

    Think my wife will be glad to see the back of the Tosh though, it is a bit bulky..

    Also anybody know a good place ot get an AE100 that has a good dead pixel policy ?
