Hi all, I've had my old Sony VPL 10HT for years now and have never bothered plugging it into "normal" TV, as I didn't ever expect the output to look watchable. Well, Aliens was on Ch4 tonight, and as I was bored with nothing else to do I rummaged around, dug out a spare Keene RGB -> S Video converter, wired it between my Quintro and the projector, fired everything up and sat back. Watching the film from my Nokia 221T Freeview box through the Tivo, MPEG compression artefacts abounded, not a very good picture, about what I expected. Then I switched to the other freeview receiver I have, a Netgem box. Wow! Zero MPEG artefacts. No noticable noise. Virtually no solarization, plenty enough resolution. The Sonys line doubling did a fine job. The picture was equivalent to a mid quality DVD, eminently watchable. The best thing is the solarization that annoys me on my Panny 42" plasma was 95% gone. I definitely think I'll be doing this a lot more, what with Ch5 showing loads of films, and ITV, Ch4 and the Beeb putting a few good uns on and all. I is one very, very, very happy and suprised camper! All I really need now is to upgrade to a VPL 12HT - haven't seen anything else yet that compares to the 10HTs picture quality, I just need the same quality with a lot better blacks.
