    Hi,

    Can anyone advise which players will output over a digital DVI or HDMI connection without upscaling the signal. (ie: deselect progressive output)

    I want my projector to do the scaling instead and feed it the unconverted digital dvd signal.

    I think the Pioneer 668 does?

    Cheers

    The 668 won't do 480i/576i via HDMI, the 868 will, scaling and deinterlacing are different animals though... Also look at Arcam...

    Check if your PJ will actually except an interlaced DVI/HDMI signal as very few can(mine wont). Most require a progressive signal.
    Interlaced via HDMI is realy for external scalers.
    DVI is progressive only

    Or dont use the scale fuction on Denon and pioneer. but i bet it will need to be progressive.

    which PJ do you have?

    Arcam's DV79 and DV29 players support this. They output 480i/576i or 480p/576p.

    Projector is a H57 Themescene when it arrives :)

    It has DVI in so looking for a new dvd player to partner this on dvi. Have a sony 725D player but not progressive. Would it not be best to let the projector deinterlace?

    Also I have a modded xbox that outputs component so want to connect that on the projector comp. input.

    Still confused on how best to connect this up for best quality. :rolleyes:

    Right, it needs a progressive output then, i use to have a H56a and the dvi input will only except a progressive signal. So interlaced HDMI will be pretty useless to you

    I would say either the Pioneer-Denon-Arcam will serve you well.
    If you plan to add an external scaler to your system then choose either Pioneer or Arcam.

    If you have an amp then use that to route or your component feeds, and use the DVI input for direct connection of the dvd player. Failing that invest in an external scaler, but you shoudnt realy need to. I get buy without one at present
