Just got my 880DX as well today :). One day ahead of schedule. I have to say that HKFlix is a good company to go with if you plan on buying one. At first I wanted to go with Atacom because they actually had a phone number I could call and talk to a real person. When I did though, the shipping was 3 times as much as HKFlix. Decided to go with HKFlix, ordered, payed through PayPal and got a confirmation right away. The next day I got a Fedex tracking number. Today when I got up and checked on the tracking it said it was sitting in a truck for delivery! It arrived around 1:00.
Took a little bit of work, but got it setup for 960p using edsuski's custom settings for my 1292Q.
The hardest part was getting used to the remote! And I thought I lost my old remote a lot in the cushions. This remote is thin and I'm sure will always be found in the depths of my couch.
Anyways, so far so good! I will be watching my first movie in over a month in the theatre room. The convergence is still pretty rough, but we are in big screen withdrawal!
To get away from the main topic a bit, my 1292Q on a 110" wide white painted screen will be plenty bright until I get my high gain material. It compares pretty favourably with my 'ol X1 in brightness. Don't get me wrong, I don't need sunglasses or anything like that but it will definitely do for now. I have the whole room blacked out, but the carpets are still too light. Amazing how much that affects the black levels...
BTW, tried a whole bunch of DVDs and all worked just fine...
There's no place I can be, since I found Serenity. You can't take the sky from me.
