    Deinterlacing it converting an interlaced signal into progressive scan format. Scaling to converting a signal of one resolution type to another. A video processor will usually do both of these functions (Lumagen, iScan, Crystalio etc).

    The avermedia box is a scaler and deinterlacer, the think on your second link is also a scaler and deinterlacer. I wouldn't expect the second to be any better than the first. For real improvements you need a budget of several hundred pounds minimum.

    DIY beamer??? This doesn't sound good. Could the DIY aspect be the cause of a blurry picture? I know it's difficult to decribe a picture, in words, but if you describe better how it is blurry someone may be able to work out if it is a processing issue or a hardware issue.
