I'll get back later with more... And this 8" still needs tweaking..
yes it should, but Mike my XG wears a modified crown
, the 2.40:1 portion of 1920x1080p, or 1920x800p
, it is really amazing what you have down with the Marquees BTW
I have never owned one myself, any Ehome for that matter
if I was using 16:9 I would want a 1080p capable display for sure, but with my love of 2.40:1 I got by this way pretty darn good
Dan my video signal is 100% digital until it hits the PJ of course, I use the DVDO VP50 for deinterlacing of 1080i/480i sources, no scaling of 2.40:1 1080i movies
the sources are Toshiba and Samsung HD/BR players along with a Yamaha CX1 with SDI mod, both HD players via HDMI into the VP50, the CX1 via SDI, my output resolution is 1920x800p from the VP50 for my 2.40:1 screen
everything but 2.40:1 HD movies are scaled, be it 1.85:1 HD movies, all aspect ratios of DVD etc.
I am too lazy for multiple setups, things look so good anyway no point and my main viewing is 2.40:1 HD movies which it is optimized for, but with the scaler and display profiles I could have every aspect ratio(from every source) optimized instead of everything scaled to 1920x800p(1.85:1 HD movies are currently like 1440x800 for example), the DVDO VP50 handles all aspect conversion like bars on the side of 1.85:1 movies for example
finally the scaler goes out via HDMI to the DVI input on the Moome card which is just a amazing piece of gear, I am one picky SOB and it pleases me, I have gamma adjustments on the DVDO VP50 also, my blacks are black and shadow detail is perfect, I am trying to get Moome to release a NEC XG 10-bit HDMI card
screen is 83" width and 34.5 height, I sit 1.4x back
my 1352LC is stock save a complete fan overhaul and a video coax mod I did which improved things alot in the video noise area
I am actually happy with my current setup, which is good because that is hard for me to be
