One question though why are you going with SVHS?

got svhs cable for a really cheap price and i have to run it under the floor then up the wall, the through the wall to my pj, thought the scart cable would leave a bigger hole in my floor & wall. if the cheaper option is pants the i will go for a 10 mtr scart to scart from audiovisiononline.
I tried asking in these forums what was the better cable Scart or Svhs but by the time i ordered i got no reply?

Hi Mate
Better is component cable!
Seriously compromising picture quality using SVHS in my opinion.
What DVD Player are you using?

S-video is above average picture quality but Component is the way to go especially when combined with a good ProgScan player.

S-video seperates the picture information into two seperate parts. The first signal is a color signal, also know as chrominance and the other is for how bright—in terms of black and white--the picture is supposed to be, also called luminance.

Component on the other hand uses three seperate cables to transmit the image information by not only separating the color from the black-and-white portions of the picture but by further splitting of the color information into two signals resulting in better resolution and greatly improved color saturation.

HTH

I've just fitted my AE300, my first projector, and I'm blown away.

A true 'Home Cinema' experience. I nearly splashed the cash on a new 36" TV instead, glad I didn't.

Movies that are just OK on the small screen take on a whole new life when they are 7ft across, viewed from 10ft. Games are taking a little getting used to, the eyes just can't keep up with everything that is going on, truely immersive gameplay, especially on PGR2/GT3.

I'll put of some photos in the 'Show us yours' thread in the next couple of days.

Enjoy, I am!

G/day fellas, I have had the panna 300 for over a year and let me enlighten you guys. The DVI output does not work. Either the first version/shipment of these units hav not had the DVI activated or the scaling being 960x540 posses an incompatibillity. Tries 480p, 720p and 1080i. No go, dont want to throw anyone off, its a lovely projector but I can only run in analogue format. Doh
Using Denon DVD A11 (The Bad Boy)

Hi, I 've had my AE300 now since Jan, and I can say that the projector is great ... I have mounted mine in my fire place, search for Drogo and you should see my posts .. I also run it through a Sony SVHS switch box, and the picture quality is amazing, I had and have a screen in the roof, but I just project onto my plain (yellow) wall and get about a 10ft screen image, amazing idea for my xbox, dvd, sky+ and films ....

Run it SVHS, as pic is still amazing ..

You dont mention what DVI enabled player you have tried, however the Momitsu DVD-V880 runs a 768p mode specifically for using with the 300, not sure if the new crop of DVI enabled players such as Yamakawa do.

Sorry, I thought it was clear that I have the "Denon DVD A11 (The Bad Boy)". Unforteanately (maybe for me only), the DVI throughput does not work. My Pana works with a Gforce 4200 through DVI though. Problem is, after 5 metres you start sacrificing Pic Quality such as Luminance and Chrominance.
Looking at the Pana 500, 1280x768. HMmmmmmm much better thanks...

heheheh your probably right, but B4 I say "You are Correct", take a look at the charts, is it the BAD BOY or is it the older Panna
Actually does the Pana support HDCP? Hmmmmm
