1440x900 is 16:10 aspect. Is it showing a black screen, or no signal? If it's no signal that might be the native resolution of the panel, or Chromecast may have picked a strange resolution (likely).
While I have had great success with the HDfury products, I don't believe any of them actually scale. I know the original HDfury through the HDfury2 do not.
Looks like the HDfury3
does not either, but the EDID banks may be helpful in your situation. What might be happening is the projector says it supports a resolution, say 1920x1080p, but when Chromecast feeds it, the project doesn't like it. Changing the EDID data so Chromecast doesn't see certain resolutions as supported may help get the two in agreement.
Ahh, looks like 3Dfury / HDfury4
has beta scaling/scan-conversion features... Nice, but the price tag is not so much, but it really depends on the cost of a newer/equivalent projector versus the cost of making Chromecast work on your existing hardware.
Personally, unless you have other applications for the converter, you're probably better off applying the $400 price tag toward an update to a 1080p projector.
