    I've got an Infocus Screenplay 4805 and I'm running it from my DVD player using the component output ( outputting interlaced signal and letting the 4805 do the de-interlacing) I'm very happy with the picture, but i'm considering buying a DVI equipped DVD player ( maybe the Denon 1910 or the Samsung HD745/945) but then I've also got to buy a DVI to M1-DA converter or cable. Are the improvements that good to warrant the additional outlay? Or will the improvements ( if any) be negligible?

    Very hard to provide an easy answer .. taking my Pio 868 and Sharp Z200E I can say there's a difference, but that's down to the capabilities of the DVD's scaler when used in DVI mode, if I use plain old 576p like-for-like I begin to find it hard to see differences a lot of the time.

    IOW, it's very system specific. In general the quality will be better, but how much is clearly a lot less easy to say.

    It is very system specific, i had a Samsung 935 connected via DVI to my Z2 but much preferred my Pio 757 connected via component (if you do a search you will see why as i commented on it at the time).
    I now have a hcpc connected via DVI and i much prefer that to my pio 757.
