    Where to start... Assuming you have an LCD or DLP PJ, it all comes down to how good the deinterlacer/scaler is in the PJ and whether or not this can be bettered by the deinterlacer/scaler in a prog scan DVD player. It will almost certainly be bettered by a dedicated external scaler (£££).

    What kit have you got? This might allow others to chip in with guidance.

    its a sony HS30, i have just got the multi cable for it that has component input on it. I have all my kit connected via scart to to a swithbox that feeds a rgb to component converter that then feeds the pj. The picture is so much better than the s-video i was using. I just wanted to know wether getting a player with component out would be better. i dont want to spend loads
