Sounds great Mike. I'm sure it will be worth the wait!

Kit or board swap suits me: as stated before I'm thinking of getting you to do 2 board sets so I've got a back up just in case!!

Is this the only current thread that treats this subject?
Since I'll be recieving a 1292 this week, I'm really interrested in the results.
And I thought that I had bought a mediocre 9"-wannabee for not so much money. Now You're telling me that it could be a real 1080p-contender? Wow... :D
I hope that there'll be some kind of replacement kit to buy anytime in the future for us Europeans. :)

Arioch, I just set up my 1292Q to 1080p and have no problems. I have the Moome Moome IFB-M2005A installed in Slot B of the projector. It is driven by a DVDO iScan HD+ for upcoversion to 1080p and connected to the PJ using a 50' DVI cable.

I must say the picture is spectacular - to say the least.

My screen is a Draper M2500 116"x65"

Everytime I plan to get back to this and put this fix/mod into action, it seems like I still have a ton of things to get out of the way first :(

I've been really gearing for this and my latest Marquee mods. I just want to put in place a good and efficient system for doing this. So far we've bought some technical help on board, and have all necessary equipment in place, to include 95% of the parts. So we're almost there :)

I'll need a litle more time to clear some things out of the way, then we'll be moving forward. I'll also like to hear from the 1292 owner that also does websites.

It's all about the performance... Got Marquee!

That would be me --- Cooldog Technologies --- relatively near you, in Kenton, DE.

We build *and* host sites. Multi-homed with one circuit to Qwest and one to AT&T.

Here'a a link to our main client's site --- been working on and hosting this one since December of 1999: LatPro Job Board. With over a quarter-million active members (just over a half-million since startup), and 20GB or so of database behind it, it's obviously a little larger in scale than what you'd need or want, but it's a good example of what we do here.

I'd be happy to do some horse-trading ...

I was hoping to make this happen before the end of the year, but that's not likely to happen. Rather than throw it out there, I wanted to be better organized, by first updating the website with the new info. That way the website will cover everything relating to the fix/mod, to include photos.

In the meantime, I'll try and get some pictures posted here, and they will show the one fixed channel compared to the two unfixed streaking channels. I think this would make for a good before and after.

If things happen sooner - so be it..:cool:

So, are you and Greg working together on the Barco or independently? I see where he is experimenting with a higher bandwidth chip. Keep up the modding!

Greg's pushing the bandwidth, while I'm doing the streaking fix. We're both in the improvement business..:D

Mike, I'm almost buying a Ruby, but I would hate to buy it and see the mod available one week after, making the 1292 far better than the Ruby :)
Can we hope to have the mod available for january ?

By the way, you also mentionned once that you would probably take care of the noise of the 1292 as well... are you still planning to deal with this ?

Concerning noise... I notice that some of the fans in the 1292 have an alternative connector on the upper board that reads something that seems like they would be thermally controlled instead of running full throttle all the time... I don't remember exactly how they're labelled.
Anyone know something about this?

Just speculation on my part but perhaps these "extra" connectors are for adding additional thermal switches to shutdown the projector if tripped during an overheat condition or perhaps Sony, during design, added them and later decided that a thermal switch for each fan was overkill.

Regardless they cannot be used to control the fan speed to lower projector noise.

Nope.

The 5 intake fans in back are powered via a resistor off the 15.5V supply. The SWITCH+THERMO jumpers are wired to put another resistor in parallel with that which would speed up the fan if an attached sensor said things were getting too hot.
