Well, my guess is that the actual resolution is about 340x234, the 340 is multiplied by the number of color dots per pixel (3) and you get around 1024.... thats pretty darn low when compared to the lilli, but depending on the screen size that you wish to project onto, it may look good still.

That flip feature is excellent!!! You have have it in

front projection (no flips),

rear projection (left-right flip),

front projection, mounted upside down on the celing (left-right-top-bottom flip, or rotate upsidedown 180degrees),

rear projection, mounted upside down on the celing (up-down flip)

nice...really adds a Commercial projector feeling....

the left-right flips make me curious what the manufacturer had in mind for its lcd's

edit
wait...if you flip it one way, its backwards so going right-left corrects it. Why have each individual setting though? Doubt we'll ever know the real reason

The LCD is 1440x234 And as you said dividing it by three leaves 480x234. Its low, I didnt realise that when I bought it. Hope to get acceptable results. Apparently Wyliec (Diy audio member) obtained very good results with a 480x234 lcd.

Ive got almost all the materials I need, so: hands to work. This weekend, cause right now I have a lot o work.
Ill be posting some pictures on sunday...

Great, I'd love to see the quality possible. The resolution maybe abit low, but still great for SDTV, PS2, VCD, VHS, Perhaps SVCD/DVD/etc, but you wont get near full resolution.

The 480x234 LCD's work quite well as long as you're not expecting to use it with a computer. But for tv/dvd/vcr they are acceptable. I had mine at 100-120" and there was noticeable screen door, but not so bad as to make it unwatchable. It was marginally more than an old RPTV. But at around 60-70" the picture is quite sharp given the low res. I now have a 15" on my OHP, but I may build another one from scratch with one of the inexpensive 7"ers, and then it can always be upgraded with a Lilly later.

you can use it with a computer as long as you use it for video/visualizations/low res or old games/game console emulators/etc.

It should be fine for DirecTV, the text may be just abit unclear (small text).

I belive that when you get screen door, is when you start to notice the spaces between the lcds pixels. They look like a screen door (one of those doors or windows with a net type of thing that is these so you can have fresh air going in, but no bugs.

Canada Rules!

yeah, the areas between the wires are where the actual image appears - each pixel. Hold up that type of wire mesh to your tv and you'll get the general idea of what it looks like, although it'll be overexagerated compared to what you get on a projected lcd image.
