My TV crashed (luckily it didn’t burn) so I was looking for alternative solutions and finally found the perfect one. The Sanyo PLV-Z4 projector does 720p HD and is very quiet. Looking around for a modeline for X I found several ones which should work but really doesn’t. I finally found the following one which seems to work rather well:
Modeline “1280×720″ 74.400 1280 1728 1768 1984 720 725 730 750 +hsync +vsync
I’ve watched different kind of content on it from TV, XviD, DVD to HD and it works really well with all. I was a little afraid that XviD ~800kbit would be very blocky but it is actually not a problem. Of course HD just looks amazing.
Joysticks are arriving tomorrow, then it’s old school arcade gaming time
