Sorry I didn't suggest that, because I knew that. Without the transmitter attached it doesn't know it's a 3D pj.

I would assume same goes for my JVC RS45, also requiring a transmitter.

I do recommend this to others looking for a 1080PJ , what a bargain, $1.7k

btw, MSRP was $2,999.99 never over $3k so how did this PJ end up in the over $3k not under $3k forum from the get go?

I replaced my VW60 with the AVS B Stock HW30ES.

Best change ever!,...I was frustrated with the light output of the VW60. New (original Philips bulbs) were 1/4 the brightness of the new bulb in a HW30. And my VW60 bulbs at 900 hours had a light output that I couldn't live with.

Finally got my 92" 16:9 Carada criterion brilliant white screen in this weekend, mounted, and fired up the b-stock HW30ES I purchased from AV Science. Did some basic alignment and image positioning, but definitely need to go back and double check everything.

In my *very* limiting viewing, I'm impressed for the price, but have only had the time to connect my Apple TV and stream some Netflix for a quick test. Can't wait to see blu-ray through this unit.

Was wondering where I might be able to find some suggested settings and calibration for this projector??

I'm throwing onto the 92" screen from only 10.5 feet -- so brightness is not an issue.

Would appreciate any help and suggestions as I work to get this dialed in...

Do you want to hire an ISF tech or buy calibration tools or just get suggested settings?...

If you just want suggested settings there are some in the first post of this thread.

Brian -- probably would have been prudent for me to look there. Thank you for pointing that out.

And no, I don't have a desire to have an ISF calibration. Think I will wait until I get my DVDO Air 3 hooked up and see how things look with blu-ray content with these settings.

I literally only had the projector for about 10 minutes this weekend once I got the screen up to throw a pattern and quickly align things, and then grabbed my apple tv to see what some content looked like.

So I will start here and see how things look...

The defaults of this projector are great.

It's also easy to dial in if you get into that sort of thing. Like if you want to do basic settings ... though I think that will just lead you back to defaults usually.
