What model projector do you have? So we can check the specs.
I believe according to his post he has an Epson MovieMate 30. Here is a link to the specs: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/consumer/consDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Specs&oid=63059187&category=Products
What I'm not sure of is exactly what Richard is asking. I think what he is wondering is why HD channels look better on his projector than standard definition channels even though theoretically the standard definition channel resolution should be a better match to the projector's native resolution. Is that right, Richard?
I see that your source is DirecTV, but I'm curious what type/model of DirecTV receiver you have and what method (type of cable) you are using to hook your source up to the projector.
You got It! Thanks tronn4 too.
I know the specs but the picture should not be better than the specs. It must be the Sd signal is that bad & not that the HD is better then the projector.
I have the HD rec that is a slave to the Hd recorder rec upstairs. It is a year old If you need to know I will get an exact Mod #. I use the component cables not the HDMI.
I know it is not HD but the picture is real nice while the SD is fuzzy etc. It is watchable but look like a 1985 projector picture
