    Now, this is a noobish question, but I make no apologies :laugh: :-

    If I get (for example) a Z2 with a pixel structure of 1280x720 will I be able to utilise this high resolution via S-video or component? Or would I need to use the dvi input for this? If yes to this question, when using component will Pal discs have 576 lines and ntsc 480, unless dvi is used?

    Whatever happens, whatever signal you use, the projector will always rescale it to fit the whole 1280 x 720 pixels. Lower resolution signals will simply need more scaling to make them fit!!

    You might do to well to browse around the video processing forum, although beware once you start that long winding road of upgrades and processors you may wish you had never even gone there :zonked:
