    Hi can anyone in the know please help me , i have a hcpc running through a bg808 and the picture is very good, could i add a scaler like a Quadscan to my system would it improve the picture quality and roughly by how much its just that a guy is selling a quadscan version 2.10 on the forum and i might be interested if the hcpc/quadscan/bg808 works.I dont know if this makes a difference but i dont watch tv or play games through the pj.

    cheers in advance

    Depends what you've got in the HTPC. If you've got 2ghz Raedon blah blah, then you may well stay put.

    I went the Quadscan route over a year ago cos the HTPC where then, not up to the job. I like that fact that I can also use it to watch Sky + and Xbox. But you do notice the drop in quality from a component fed DVD to S video Sky + Alot softer.

    Assume your 808 has component in, so you could just get one of the latest PAL enabled progressive DVD player.

    Regards

    Not much use for an 808 really.

    I have a Quadscan pro V2.50 (last version) and its OK. Its not up to the quality of a well speced PC though. Its a trade of between useability and picture quality.
