I tried my best to take a picture of what I see but it appears to be personal or at best it might be the effect known as strobing but I can't be sure because they do not describe exactly what I see in the terms I would use. None of the images I took showed the effect in the frame so it doesn't appear to be in the actual 1/48th of a frame. What I see when a pan is very quick across a star field is the stars all become double stars or potentially a streak. A prime example is Star Trek: TOS The Doomsday Machine. At the end of the episode Kirk and Spock walk in front of the view screen and to me, every star turns into two distinct stars as we pan across following the actors. As the pan slows down the gap between the double star is reduced until the panning stops and they all become normal. On my LCD TV, some of the brighter ones turn into streaks and my wife sees the same thing.

I wonder if the problem of motion blur in digital technology affects some people more than others like RBE, which I am very sensitive to.

When I joined AVS the first time around (back in 2000) Phelps was one of the top CRT calibration specialists. In particular he was the "go to guy" for G90's. When the digital age was ushered in he was calibrating Faroudja D-ILA's at their factory.

No idea what happened to him.

I think you are thinking of Chuck Williams. Chuck did a lot of mods as well.
There also used to be a guy by the name of Doug Baisley that did magic with repairing NEC's.
Curt, glad you are still here.
There is currently a JVC with "Optimized by William Phelps" signature for sale in the displays for sale.

"You say goodbye, I say Hello"
My wife and I spent some time looking at a few digital's this weekend.
We didn't see anything that really wowed us, or was a big improvement over our 10PG. This included the Runco Q750.
I can't believe the DLP's still have RBE. I hear posters saying they are super sensitive to RBE and they see none with this unit, or that unit. It is still there!
The Q750 was the nicest display we demoed on a Joe Kane screen. But, was it that much better than our 10PG/ torus?
Our system is not perfect either. The torus screen (Mocomtech) shows it self in bright white scenes such as white clouds, and it causes audio issues.
If our projector can be repaired at a reasonable price, I think we will stick with it a while longer.

JVC produces the D-ILA that was "optimized by William Phelps" rebadged and sold by Faroudja several years ago.

William Phelps was the guy for G90's; not sure if he is still around but member MikeM had him set up his G90 back in the day.

The only digital's i'm currently interested in are the LED's

I'm back up and running
I pulled the neck boards, cleaned everything, popped the boards back in, and it works.

The geometry/ color was screwed all up. A quick setup and watch a movie tonight.
Think I might start putting some money away for a digital anyways.

Congrats to have the CRT back in action.

after 16 years or more a small bottle of Caig DE-oxit with brush-on applicator is the most important CRT repair tool you can own.

All my crts do the ghosting thing on that particular scene of POTC. And that's ranging from a 32" direct view to a 65" rear projection. I think its a glitch in the digitizing or something that digital displays filter out.
