    Hi, I want to get the Topfield 5000Ci satellite receiver but I want to project on the wall with a projector/beamer. I've heard that only projectors with the specification 'component video' or 'YPbPr' are suitable for satellite images. I've found a good projector with this specification, but my question is: is the Topfield 5000 Ci compatible with component video or YPbPr?

    Thanks, pipisheri

    Not so. You will get the best results from a projector with a progressive scan input (which necessitates component video in), but most projectors accept other video formats too. I've no idea whether this sat receiver gives component output, but if it does not, there are a number of boxes that will convert s-video and composite video to progressive/component. The quality of these boxes really depends on how much you spend.
