Due to an ice storm in Portland OR, worst since '68, my plans on flying up there today have been changed to the 28th. I will be up there till Jan. 2.

I will also be at CES in January arriving a day or 2 early and staying a day or 2 afterwards. So if you are in or around Vegas and want a cal done, I'm there.

I am prioritizing saving every Pioneer Elite CRT RPTV - all brands of CRT RPTVs, really - I can right now, but am also in touch with Shawn - Turbe - over equipping up for the 9Gs upon request. I know that flat panels are the wave of the future, and at some time in the future I know I will have ONLY those to do, but for now I want to dedicate myself to saving and tricking out all the CRT triple-guns I can, whether RPTV or front projection.

For now, if anyone needs their Pioneer Elite 510/610/710 restored from the intermittencies that are plaguing them right now - also many of the x20 series - I have been 100% successful in saving those units from certain eventual death via my comprehensive resoldering process of their problematic PS boards. All the ones I have resoldered have brought their sets back to 100% stability and a full and useful life again, and on a permanent basis. You can send me the boards or have me in for servicing your set on location, in which case I can also do a complete calibration and cleaning for you. I currently have 5 boards awaiting my loving attention as we speak, having been sent from all parts of the continent.

If you want more information on this totally remedyable malady plaguing the '99-2000 CRT Elite series, go to this thread:

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...402397&page=53


Weather permitting, I will be in Portland from the 28th to Jan. 2, and in any event will be in Vegas at CES time.

Lets see if I understand what I have available to me after a calibration.

2 additional modes Day, night?

I use a Denon 3808 AV unit so all my inputs go through the Denon.
Perhaps I could use day for DTV and night for Bluray.
My Room does not get too much Sun.

What I am curious about is once I choose one of these settings I will not be able to adjust any of the normal brightness,color settings?

I typically use Standard or Optimum. Lately I have seen some content that has to much chroma and I have had to set color to -5.

I think if this happens after the cal because of program content I will not be able to change chroma without jumping out of day night.

Does this sound correct?

TIA

The 9G Elites can have up to 3 ISFccc memories per Input (isf Night, isf Day and isf Auto).

The ISFccc memories settings are separate from each other and the standard AV Selections. Many have the ISFccc memories calibrated and Pure (you can easily make changes in the Pure Setting though it's global for all Inputs). To edit the ISFccc settings, you would need ControlCAL which some users do have even when they have their display Professional calibrated (one example HERE).

Your Calibrator can discuss the options with you.

This may help answer some questions: Understanding the Pioneer 9G ISFccc Interface

Here is a LIST of Professionals who can activate and calibrate your Pioneer's ISFccc Interface.

does anybody know why my denon 3808 avr goes into protection mode (crashes) when i have the audessey dynamic eq on? it never did that before i upgraded the damn thing and paid 100 bucks for it. it usually crashes during a loud bass/low frequency signal playback. when i go into the denon 3808 menu and turn the dynamic eq off. the problem goes away.

The only time we have seen the AVR3808 go into protection is when the power supply voltage drops lower than expected.
This usually occurs when there is a shorted speaker, causing the amp section to draw more current than the power supply can produce.
HOWEVER...we have seen whats happening in your case.
I'm gonna bet that the subwoofer amp and the receiver are powered from the same plug (or room circuit), and theres not enough current to run both.
For a test, run an extension cord from another room and use it to power the subwoofer.
That's the 1st test.
Lots more to try, but lets start with the easy one.

It looks like some folks are heading to Las Vegas for CES this winter. If anyone has experience calibrating a Sammy LED DLP (HL67a750) -- or simply thinks they can do a damn fine job -- send me a PM when you get a chance. Initially, I was thinking of having Best Buy do the work, but now I'm starting to have reservations. It's probably worth the extra money to have a seasoned professional on the job . . .

Cheers!

David Abrams will be in Vegas during CES and is extremely familiar with Samsung DLPs. You may want to email him at dave@avical.com to see if he can fit you in.

Good luck!
