Plus, that meet was clearly explained to me that someone would be bringing a source to try out on the system.
Now with that being said, you did nothing wrong. If i could fault you for anything it would be you being so closed minded and thinking that nothing was as good as a G90. I only wish the setup was worthy to prove you wrong, but it wasn't. So I had to deal with one more gung ho G90 addict not seeing my work at it's best. And that made me feel funny.
Other than that, I give you very high marks for just putting the cards on the table at that meet. unlike the others, you told me exactly what you thought of the setup at the time. And that was one on one. so you're good with me, and you've been very helpful with your responses in this thread. So don't punk out on me now and go hide in a corner. Your input is also welcomed and appreciated here.
Mike, I have a great deal of respect for you and your hard work. Your a great person and the time we've spent has been nothing short of awesome.
Remember a certain Nicole Kidman clip and both of our jaws laying on the floor not to long ago?
Hell, that was DVHS!
The bottom line is I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be an expert, but what works, well works.......
I wen't through hell in a hand basket trying to get the proper solution for my blendzilla meet and I know what your mods are capable of and want you to be able to exploit that to the max.
Did you know that the VP50 outputs both 24 and 48hz? Boy would that not be the bee's knees at 72hz from the 8022?
Hell, it also has blanking, and as well many other features that would be VERY useful for stand alone sources.
Hell, if I didn't have the VP30 for my meet, I would have been in a bad situation to be honest with you.
Not to mention, built in test patterns that would be key to setting up the blend and as well both RGBHV, component, SDI, and HDMI switching. You cant go wrong.
Both BD and HD have players out now that output 1080P/24 and I would not hesitate to exploit what these awesome players have to offer on a blended system like William's.
You've been here, you've seen it. You know.
As far as the G90 fanboy thing, well, yes, I cant help it.
But even the mighty G90 could use your magic touch to make it perfect so anyone who thinks that G90's dont need mods are sadly mistaken.
You have to give Sony credit though on that projector. It's the BEST out of box CRT next to the 909/Cine 9 ever made.
Hell, it ranks with the best period.
