    I tried to hook up my C2D MBP running OS10.4 to a Panasonic PTL500u 720p projector via DVD. I played a 720p and 1080i Quicktime clip and the video looked only slightly better than a standard def DVD. Also the image didn't fill the screen completely. Text was blurred and not easy to read -- not very HD looking. I tried both mirroring and spanning. The highest resolution it would connect was 1440 x 900 interlaced, however it did NOT look that good. In fact, I tried a 540p clip and could see no difference between that and the 720p clip. What's going on?

    I'd like to be able to save 1080/30fps Quicktime videos and play them back via DVI out rather than get an AppleTV and be stuck with 540p.

    Ok, how about this... anyone try to hook their MBP to a HDTV and if so, what resolution can you use?
