I've owned a Panasonic AE100 for a couple of years now, and I've finally got round to getting a proper screen (ScreensUK Tab Tensioned Electric 2m wide) rather than the homemade job I was using before. The screen is lovely, but the downside is that it's making me notice the flaws in the projector more. My main source is DVD (a Pioneer 470), over component, with progressive scan. I also have SKY+ and a Tivo, and even the occasional video. I'm noticing that there's a noticeable halo/ghosting on high contrast objects on the screen - particularly dark objects on a light background - the sharpness setting patterns on DVE show this well. (yes, I have calibrated the projector and checked the sharpness settings etc). I've checked with different leads and different DVD players, so I know it's the projector. Having a google around suggests that ghosting on the component inputs is a 'feature' of the AE100. So, I can see a few ways to go : 1 : Upgrade the projector The Panasonic AE700 and the Sanyo Z3 both look good for the kind of money I can stretch to, but do have problems of their own (Like VB in the case of the AE700?) 2 : Buy a scaler The ISCAN HD looks very good, and would allow me to drive the AE100 through the HD15 port, hopefully giving me 1:1 mapping and less of the ghosting due to no longer using the component inputs. This would also improve the picture from my SKY+ and Tivo etc. The ISCAN HD is kinda overkill for the projector maybe, but would still work fine if I upgrade the projector sometime next year, as I understand new panel technology may be in the offing etc 3 : Leave it all alone Convince myself out of upgradeitis and wait until next year to see what's new in the world of projectors then So, those are the things I can think to try (no, I don't want to build a HTPC - I know I'll end up tweaking it forever and I spend enough time with computers for work ). Any advice and suggestions greatly appreciated. Sam.
