I will be using a CRT projector, which takes RGB input directly.  (And
doesn't take up half the floorspace!)  But these days I'd think a DLP
projector would be best; I just got a cheap deal several years ago on
this one and it works well enough.  I have used Xawtv with it for a
while, and have a DVD player with RGB outputs too.  The convergence drifts
a lot though, and that is much worse than signal degradation due to
passing through an NTSC encoding.

It's unfortunate that they picked a different standard for TV-type
component video, although I'm beginning to understand it has something to
do with better noise immunity.

That sounds fun.
