    Philips do two versions of the Astaire projector, Astaire and Astaire Delux.
    Just be aware that the non-delux version doesn't have a lens zoom control. plus isn't just as bright.

    Woah, spooky!

    I've just taken delivery of an astaire deluxe from Chris Frost on this site - although I've only had it running for 3 hours my first impressions are very good. This was bought sight unseen as I was unable to demo any 'budget' PJ's in Glasgow and bought this one on (a) the recomenndation of Chris and (b) what little info I could find on the web..

    Once I've finished clearing away all the rubbish from my lounge (ended up rebuilding my AV rack and things) and have watched a few movies this weekend I'll come back and give a fuller review.

    Regards

    Iain

    This is just the plain astaire, but the price is right... Has anyone seen this projector up and running, coz I'm thinking of buying unseen as well.

    My Bogart came with 2. One is SCART>composite and left & right audio (like you get with the Playstation2) which isn't much use.
    The other is a SCART to RGBsynch adapter. If you supply the Bogart with Red, Green, Blue and composite then it will accept an RGB SCART signal so it can feed directly from Sky, Tivo etc.
