I currently use an Infocus 4800 Screenplay DLP Projector, an X-Box, and a progressive-scan dvd player...I've been using s-video to connect the dvd player and X-Box to the projector and have been pretty happy with the picture quality...the movies and games look great on the projector and the colors and brightness are nice on the eyes...only thing is that I see vertical lines on blue images and there is a faint "grid-type-distortion-noise-kind-of-thing" going on if you look really close to the picture...I've read that component is the better way to go so I got my component cables and switched out the s-video...what I got was a picture without the negative aspects BUT the image seems blurrier and the colors are AWFUL! I have tried resetting the settings and starting over but it's lacking the sharpness and pleasant colors of the s-video connections I had before. Now people's teeth on movies are BRIGHT and BLINDINGLY white and the colors seem darker and just as not of a nicer picture...I'm confused!! I have tried turning down the brightness and contrast to where the whites are dimmer but then the picture is dark and the colors are saturated...looks vcr quality...I just don't know how to fix this...I've read everywhere that component beats s-video but the picture I'm seeing is worse with component...I like the more definate picture quality of the component but the s-video colors are just more movie-like and better on the eyes...HELP!!!
