I have the Grandtec Ultimate 2000 and Grandtec Ultimate XP Pro, they 
both seem to work fine, the XP Pro is nice because it has a remote. They 
both work the same, so I assume the 1000 would be as well. The XP Pro 
has component out, which is why I got it. If you get the modeline right 
you will have a rock solid picture. I run at 800x600, but I should 
probably bump that up. The nice thing is mine has a VGA splitter so I 
can send the Component Out to my TV and the straight VGA to my projector 
at the same time, so I don't need to do anything to switch between the 
two except pull down the screen and turn on the projector.
