I’m thinking of using a video projector as my big screen tv in my basement. They’re HD/TV ready, can have a viewable screen of up to 300 inches. Have native formats for both 4×3 and 16×9, and for under $1000 bucks you can get a darn nice one. The biggest drawbacks for me is the fact that they don’t work to well in bright rooms, don’t work to well for regular tv, and require tuner in front of them – usually a pc. I think this little do-hickey with the optional tv card may be a nice option rather than feeding it through your full blown computer.
