I'm also anxious to hear your impressions of Moome's new card Gary. I am hopeful that I can replace my HD Fury and RTC2200 transcoder combination with this card.

That's a great film! Just make sure you grab the original -- I believe there are at least a handful of remakes, but none capture that same eerie tension.

I read the book long time ago but never seen any version of the movie. I hope I'm not disapointed.

Gary, did you notice any posterization ( Where there is lighter patches of dark blue in a all black area) on The Omega man during dark scenes?
At first I thought it might be my projector so i put in a few movies that have dark scenes and it didn't happen on those. I noticed the same thing on a few other older movies and also on The HD-DVD of The Mummy. Would this be a bad transfer?

Marquee 8500 2005-03p Moded Vim @ 1080p48hz. I used a 2 second exposer but i think a half second to one second more would have showed what i am seeing better And once again the pause on the LG player adds noise and no color calibration yet.








A 2.5 second exposer would have helped this.

looks pretty damn good to me Athan, very sharp

maybe a little too cool,but as I found out myself, lots of cameras don't give a greyscale equal to what we see in person so that may be the cause for that

No you are 100% right about the coolness of the grey scale. I haven't worked on it yet since i am still changing out parts and trying different value caps on the vim. And I soon plan to add the same op amps onto the VNB's and the corresponding coupling caps for that amp. Also I just can't seem to get rid of the green tint after the HD144 lens install I have got it a little better but have to bump blue drive way up to hide the green tint thus giving it that cool look and this is even with a 2035-03p and a 2035-02p Vims. I wanted to make sure it wasn't something on the moded Vim.
However thanks for the compliment on sharpness, I am really happy with the way this old Vim is performing. I put an original back in just to see if it was some kind of placebo effect and the moded Vim just does black so much nicer and it is definitely sharper than the non-moded 2005-03p.

Made some additional changes to the 2005-03p Vim and CLM. This is still with a no color calibration and a dirty set up.12 foot screen contrast and brightness @ 50. After some of the changes to the vims power line inputs it seems the red tube comes on when no input is on but once the input is on that issue goes away. cant figure that one out since it wasn't any change to the signal or internal signal lines, just the power rails on the plug to the backplane.





On this one you can see its not converged 100%



This one shows the sublte differens=ces in shades of colors especially the foilage in the back ground.



This is hard work , I don,t know how Mike Parker does it ! my hats off to his efforts as they are the inspiration for my messing around with the old vims.

Glad to see the Mitsu is still looking good. I should try a few screen shots from my Mitsu diamond series 65815. Bob what was the link to that pcb mod for the mitsu's ringing problem that Craig Rounds has. I'm getting pretty good with the Iron and might give it a try.

This thread is inspirational for newbs to screen shot nabbing...silly/quick question when using chep-ish digital type camers (Sony cybershot P93 5.1 MP)...do you leave off the "red eye" function for this stuff - I like it on for real world pictures, does actually work for that, but I 'm guessing I should leave it off? Thanks. =)

Red eye reduction is merely a pre-flash to reduce the subjects' pupil.

For screenshots, flash is off. Including red-eye pre-flash.

Alrighty, knew about the flash and taking them in dark rooms, etc, now I'll make sure to turn the red-eye off as well - thanks!

Added more caps to my CLM and changed out two of the 16 pin mc34074's for the tle2074 and one OPA4134 in place of a TL084. also some more buffering cap changes. Small improvement but not much, screen shots cant capture all the shadow detail and blacks are deep and inky.

one from Sunshine.....



now the usual 5th E, but i know this movie well so its needed to evaluate, i'm sick of it too



I love this shot for some reason....









And my fav of the bunch.....

pretty big difference Athan, I did it in 5 mins flat, there is still some ringing problems left afterwards still but it is greatly reduced, make sure you get a plastic screwdriver to adjust the cap

Flashpoint 1080P/60 on a Crippled stack with bad colors and crappy geometry.

Thankfully the stack is fixed.
