If the PJ passes EDID info (doubt it... RGBHV cables don't have the pins) overriding the autodetected monitor may not work.

Clarence... I've got "The Incredibles" in 1080i HD... a bunch of .ts files. They'll require two data DVDs but I can provide if you like.

Ummmm........ could I possibly get on that list? Pleeeeease? This I have to see on my (lowly) NEC.

Where do you guys find this stuff? I thought the DVD looked pretty darn good as it is.

I use "powerget" to pull in files. WARNING: Start the "catch up with headers and sort" process before going to bed. My local NNTP server has something like three million posts.
Generally speaking, large files (or collections of files) are processed with a PAR program, and will include a number of .par and .par2 files. DOWNLOAD THESE ALSO! PAR files are "parity archives..." Using algorythms similar to RAID disk arrays, PAR files use parity to verify (and repair) large binary files.

Search on the acronyms herein to learn about the process.


And, no, I'm sorry I can't go into the DVD pressing business. Time is a big, BIG problem right now... (readers digest version: company closing 100 year old building. Moving products and staff to three different buildings in two countries, and IT's ALL HAPPENING NOW. My boat's still in the water, and it's almost november. THAT's how busy I've been.)

I enjoy mowing my lawn. It's the only two hours of my week where I know what's expected, understand the job, can forsee completion, and look back and see progress.

Clarence,
I am very sad for you and sorry about your bad luck :( . Don't worry though there are better days ahead. Having to haul that G90 so far then unloading it and having hang it fromm your ceiling, you poor bastard. Things will get better, keep that chin up. I feel so bad for you, I think I may come that way and remove that giant eyesore for your residence. There's always tommorow, chin up big fella. That projector wastland of yours does not need another member.

YOU SUCK!

I am starting to think everyone is happier that you got a G90 than if they did.:)

What sources are you going to have Terry calibrate the G90 to? It looks like for non-pc sources that tse's circuit might be mandatory. Also, since you are gunning for Art you will need a Torus.:D

Also, my vote is for Z's special screenshots.

Enough kids stuff... the boys are in bed. Does anyone recognize the movies?





Here's a macro shot of scanlines at 1280x1024... but 1200p fills in nicely.

Hmm... blue convergence is off a half-click to the left, red convergence is off a half-click to the right... time to dig out the binocs... I need a wireless remote too so I can get up close to the screen.



Ooh... good idea... I gotta go find that 1080i test pattern.

- Momitsu

Just a quick note, the i and p modes are not refresh rate dependent. They are either interlaced or progressive. Normal HDTV 1920x1080 is interlaced and runs at 60Hz. Half the lines are drawn, then the in between lines are drawn with a combined total of 30 times per second or 60 fields per second if you look at the two passes separately. 1920x1080i at 60 Hz has the same bandwidth as 1920x1080p at 30 Hz. When people say 1920x1080p, they usually are referring to 1920x1080p at 60 Hz which takes twice the bandwidth of 1920x1080i. 1280x720p is always progressive at 60 Hz in the HDTV world.

Hope this helps.
Mike

P.S. Nice projector. I wish I had one. :D

Clarance,
STOP and make sure you change the G CElement before you mount the G90 on the ceiling. You can do it with the tube still in the unit if it's still on the floor. Call me and I'll walk you through it. Pretty important upgrade.

Top picture is David Gilmore in concert at (I forget where) but it is very good. I especially like the bass and cello in the group. I assume you have In the Flesh Live as well? Wish they would do one last concert tour as a complete group, although I really likes Division Bell a lot even without Roger Waters influence.

Yep, I need to replace the red c-element due to the seller exposing the lens to the sun (melted a spot), so I might as well replace the green c-element, too.

That DG concert is from the HiDef Stratocaster Tribute. Great stuff.

Does anyone know why I get "Not applicable" sometimes while in the middle of touching up Zone convergence?

We were getting the same "not applicable" doing Zone on the seller's personal G90 last night too. It doesn't screw up the convergence or Memory (I remember my XG used to be finicky about key presses during memory blocks), so we're probably just fat fingering something.

Dang... I can't get over looking up at the screen and seeing 1280x1024 sharper than my 19" monitor (I'm typing this on my HTPC).

Sorry for the continuous grinning and obnoxious gloating (yes, I suck ;) ), but I haven't enjoyed a present like this in 38 years of Birthdays and Christmas.

Now I finally understand why Cliff calls me after every time he goes to Art's and rambles on for hours about how frickin' great the G90's are.

The delta from 7" ES to 8" EM is nothing compared to the delta up to 9" LC.

I can only imagine what a stack or pro calibration would look like. Or on a real screen (my wall is still just primed with Kilz2).

Clarence, Good for you!! Nice score!!!! :D

BTW, one of my first impressions was similar to yours in that the first thing I noticed is that if you don't kick up the rez you'll see scan lines that you would not see on an 8" unit. Another was the super sharp image. As I have stated before the jump from 8" to 9" is HUGE! Until a guy sees it its hard to describe.


Very happy for you!! Keep gloating!! :p

Have a Happy and safe New Year!!!

Even though I haven't seen it, I could see where the delta would be greater. Looking at the HD10Fs sitting next to the HD-124s is a huge difference. They also weigh a heck of a lot more.


I would like to see some elaboration on the differences between resolutions. You guys touched on it at Mikes get together. Hopefully once Terry does your calibration you two will be able to sit down and really check it out. I don't believe Terry has ever tried anything greater than 1080. Maybe you two can post together when he is there under a new screen name like Chuence or Clarchuf.:)

Just wondering if you are going to order the moome DVI input card for your G-90? The DVI input is supposed to accept 1080p.

Clarence, the 1280x1024 screenshots, is that with a full 4:3 raster or is it squeezed to 16:9?

squeezed to 16:9... that text screenshot is the VLC right-click menu of the Shaun of the Dead movie above. But I haven't figured out that aspect ratio yet, because I measured a circle in one of the INHD and/or HDNet calibration clips (and kept squishing until the height of the circle equaled the width), but when I played the David Gilmour concert, Dave looked short and fat, so I stretched him back up by eye

Hehe, yep, now you know :D :D :D :D

And now you know at the same time why I'm so upset when I get home from Art's!!! :eek:

Here is what I would do if I were you before you hang that puppy. Remove the lenses and inspect the CRT's. That Green looks like it needs replacing to me. Bite that bullet now and get the beoch to tip top condition before you hang it. Talk to Terry and see if you can get a decent green or new green for it, replace it with the new C element. You will love yourself even more for doing the proper justice to that bad boy.

Oh, also, did I say get her calibrated????

I'm really happy for you big dog. I'm looking foward to the day that I can visit and see it in person.

ALSO, you REALLY should budget for a 1080P scaler for DVHS and Comcast. The results vs. 1080i will be night and day!

Lets us know when you have set it up properly. Anyway, it looks incredible sweet!

Does the melted area on the red show very visible?
