Don't hesitate in getting a calibration done by Doug(DroptheRemote)Weil. I've had my Panasonic(8UK) plasma calibrated a couple years ago, and very happy with the results. Very honest and a pleasure to deal with.

BTW, I'm about to switch out the Panny soon for a new Pio 111-fd. I'll be giving a Doug a call a soon...

AFAIK every ISF calibrator is "better" than others, for example, for a very spcific kind of CRT projector.

According to your experience, who can be appointed "most expert in Marquee deep calibration and modding"?

I mean someone who knows that PRJ as his own pockets and can really get the best from a calibration.

Thanks a lot for your suggestions.

Jeff, it would be helpful to know where you are, unless you're indicating that for the right guy you would fly them to wherever you and your projector are.

Chuck Williams in San Francisco and Michael Hamilton in Arizona would be my top nominees if location is not an issue for you.

That's the right one (obviously if the calibrator is willing to).

Thanks for your suggestions

For anyone in the S.F./Northern California area who's looking for a calibrator, I can highly recommend Robert Jones. He recently calibrated and cleaned my six year old Elite PRO-730HD CRT rear-projector. The improvement is really striking -- even my wife and daughter were blown away by the clarity and depth of the picture. I'm very happy I decided not to replace this TV with a flat panel. I own much newer plasma sets by Pioneer (Elite) and Panasonic, as well as a Samsung LCD, and while they have excellent PQ, they can't compete with the CRT RPTV when it comes to black levels and picture clarity. You can find Bob at bob@imageperfection.com or 510-278-4247.

Hi Guys,

I am in the need of a calibration and overscan reduction and geometry resize.
I have a pioneer SD 532HD5 CRT RPTV.
I just had the power supply replaced and replaced the 2 IC chips STK392-110.
I want to use my HDTV to watch HD football games.
However the score info line at the top of the screen is above my viewing area off screen. So I need overscan reduction. CNBC also has a HD channel and much of the data is beyond my viewing area off screen on left and right sides and the top. My Sat feed is Dish network.
Also my convergence lines in user mode are bending at the screen edges becoming concave. The TV needs a lot of work.
I am in Grand Forks, ND.
Who can come to me and solve my problems?

I'd be glad to, I specialize in CRT tech and overscan redux in particular. I also resolder the PS boards in the 510/610/710 Elite series, which includes your non-Elite model which coulda saved you having to get a new PS board for your set. Send me a plane ticket, I fly out of OAK, or from SFO by special arrangement.

You can see examples of my work on your series - screenshots of last year's MN tour - here
