Sure, I'll take a look and let you know. One area I was surprised at is how well the detail stays during high speed action. When I get closer to the screen I can really see the fine details in the background. This is the 780 ti card I posted about a while back.

Thanks. I read some reports about how well the 780 ti works with 4k gaming.

Hi Andreas, are you running your 1000 in low lamp mode with the 08-85 Supernova?

I'm considering getting the 08-85 Supernova myself for use with my VW500 and i wonder if the light will be enough for 2D in low-lamp?

With a new lamp it is ok to run it in low, I get around 17fl with a new lamp in low. So it depends on your screensize, if you go bigger than me it will get dimmer and you might need to go up to high to get the brightness you like. I like a bright picture and run mine at high after about 200 hours on the lamp. I tested the VW500 here last year and it was plenty bright with my screensize.

Ok, good to know. I was thinking of going with a 116" in 2.35:1 so it should be ok.

Do you have a CIH/2.37 setup to test gaming with? I just sent my projector off, but I tried to run games off my HTPC I just got and I was having a lot of trouble with the widescreen resolutions. I was testing Titanfall, which I know is supposed to work at ultra-wide resolutions, and it refused to work at the custom resolution I setup. Even though the game said it was running at 2.37 ratio, it was going above and below the screen. I don't have anamorphic, I just use zoom (as most do I think).

Was also having issues with 4k 60p also which is supposed to work with the newest Nvidia drivers I thought. That could be a cabling issue, I didn't have time to try more than 2 cables.

Anyway, I hope you don't mind if we compare notes in the future as I try to get my HTPC setup for widescreen gaming on the 1100ES. I'm thinking the projector running zoomed adds an extra variable vs. standard ultra-wide monitor setups.

One other possible issue, I only got a 750ti because I refuse to buy a beefier card until they come out with the smaller fab chips for them. But I would think for this exercise it would work the same as your card, just slower. I will run ultra-wide in 1080 until then, which with zoom, actually should use less pixels and should perform decently. I couldn't get Titanfall to work in 1080p or UHD.

Uggh, the saga continues with the botched/defective upgrade board ... that Sony should have made other arrangements besides making me ship my baby to Laredo.

The thing was picked up Standard Overnight FedEx over 24 hours ago. The only notation on the tracking is that it was picked up. Nothing since.

I should have all kinds of notations on that by now. FedEx says it should have been delivered by now.

The only way this happens in my mind is it either fell off the truck or "walked" away.

I hope Sony insures these...it was their shipping tag.

EDIT:Well that was pretty good customer service, got a call back already from the escalation team. Seems the label had to be reprinted in transit. Not sure what happened there, or why the tracking wouldn't note that. Still not good because it likely delays the shipment over the weekend and we all know the longer this stuff is in the shipping channel the more likely bad things happen...

My screen is a 16:9 but I can try the widescreen modes to see how it works. I've tried several games in UHD 3840x2160, they all loaded fine and look impressive.I'm using a regular HDMI cable to the 1100 2nd HDMI port and a DVI -> HDMI to provide sound to the AVR.

I don't recall, what issue did you run into with your update that required sending it back to Sony?

a fellow member noted on the 600 thread that Nvidia kept the 60hz UHD setting in the latest non-beta drivers so that's very cool to see them push the cutting edge of HDMI 1.4. I get that the subsampling isn't ideal, it still looks awesome nonetheless.

Thanks for verifying your setup. I was also going into the 2nd HDMI port. I have some rack reconfiguration I need to do before I get the audio part going, but that's great to know you can run that from the same card with a DVI to HDMI converter. Thanks for verifying that change made it into non-beta as well, since I couldn't get it to work even though it showed up as an option. That may be my card, cabling, or some other issue, but at least there is hope that setting will stay supported indefinitely for when I do get a card I know can run well at 60p.

My upgrade board never had working serial or IP ports for me. I'm assuming they must have worked for the upgrade but it must have died soon after that. Because of unrelated issues with my home automation, I thought it was just that I didn't have it actually hooked up to my network, but it was more than that. Bad timing. And then my Sony tech confirmed he had my original files from the upgrade but never provided them to me. I felt like I should have either gotten on-site service to correct an issue with an in-home visit component that died within a couple months or I should have been able to transport my unit locally to get it worked on, since it was known the new board was the issue. No luck on either, even though my original tech would have still been available to do the work.

DVDO Mini 4K Scaler

So I spent the last 4 hours experimenting with a fresh one from Amazon (just came in stock) and I have to say I am really impressed. Reading the first couple Reviews on Amazon I was expecting to return it after 20 minutes or so. I now can say I know what Mark is always talking about when he mentioned Ringing. I spent the evening checking out NFL preseason games. I can say the image is cleanest I have seen using its Ringing Suppression and Smoothing. I went back and forth quite a bit and during the plays the difference is also noticeable. The numbers on jerseys and score boxes look damn clear. Jaggies are virtually non existent! I am using a Monoprice IR Extender (model 8060) which their manual suggested with perfect results. It works fine with the DVDO Duo and 103D in the chain. Though it is harder to justify the Duo but I love its extra controls and options. If you send in Blu-ray 1080p/24 it passes right through. 3D works fine with it too. Tomorrow I plan to spend more time comparing them. As for now I am very impressed with their VRS Clearview chip and its 4K scaling abilities. The front row just got as good as the back for football!

Sorry folks, I am desperate. I snitch into this thread for Sony 1100 (Sony 1000 and 1100 are twin sisters).

I am about to install my Sony 1100. Ceiling mount.
I tried to find any unofficial or Sony official "Installation Manual", but no where to find ?
Available only Instruction manual for using the Projector, Remote etc.
Usually Sony issue 2 kind of manuals, Instruction and INSTALLATION manuals.

This is odd enough, for this kind of high-end product Sony try to save some paper cost or web-listing ?

Can someone help me and give me hints, links etc.

Thanks

Can anyone tempt me to upgrade from my VW-500/600 to the VW-1100.
I have a 145" scope screen and a fully blackout room.


What will I really notice in the changeover please?


Will the blacks be noticeably any better?

I don't think a demo will produce the correct results.


Different rooms, different size screens, just never works.


The only way to tell is in my room next to my 500/600 and that's not easy to setup.
I really need someone from here who has set the two up side by side and compared.

ZOMBIE10000,
This is basically what I need:
1. Screen high from floor for 150" 16:9 screen, watching from recliner sofa, eye level at about 70cm high from floor. HT room is 5m x 8m.
2. Optimal Sony lens distance from screen, ceiling mount, any point between 5.5m to 7.5m. Brightness is important. Dedicated HT, no windows no outside light Bat-cave.
3. Sony lens center placing in compare to Screen top edge.

Hope you can give me some real bites.

Thanks.

I have seen them side by side and the VW1000/1100 is better, but I wold recommend you sice you have the store you have to side by side test them and see if you find the upgrade worth it.

Iwanrs, no offence, but based on your posts in the other thread you started on the topic, I think you should ask someone to help you install the projector.

As for your specific questions

1. your preference. I would put this screen around 40-50cm from the floor. Why don't you set up the pj temporarily and try what is comfortable for you?

2. You could use the Projectorcentral calculator to determine the possible range of projector distance from the screen. This data for your specific screen size 150" diagonal(?) is also listed on page 80 in your manual. https://docs.sony.com/release/VPLVW1100ES.pdf

The projector distance from your screen can be between 447 – 973 cm (or 176 – 383 in.) as listed. It is your choice in this range. The closer you put the projector (in this range) the brighter image you get. The farther you put, the more uniform the light distribution will be (this may not be noticable with this excellent projector).

Based on the above, ideally you may put the projector somewhere around 450-500cm from your screen to maximize light output. But it all depends on the design of your room and your preferences also.

3. On page 80 of the manual the projector's lens shift range is listed. Based on this, the answer to your question is 0-48,8cm from the top edge of your screen (if your screen is 150" diagonal 16:9). it is fine anywhere in this range.

Also, on the other thread you say you will get a 2,4 gain sreen. this is completely unnecessary and I would advise against it unless you always want you use the projector with the room lights on.
As you say your room is a Bat cave, a 1.0-1.3 gain screen will give you a very bright picture with this projector and screen size. A higher gain screen will compromise your image quality and really not needed.
This projector has around 1700-1800 Lumens calibrated light output (according to reports in this forum), so if you put your projector around 5meter from your 150" screen you'll get around 26 ft.Lamberts screen brightess with a 1 gain screen and around 34 ftL with a 1.3 gain screen. That is plenty! your typical commercial cinema has around 14-16 ftL.

hope this helps

I responded to your email request to me. Remember guys his request is for the 1000/1100ES not the 500/600ES and he already has his screen.

iwanrs..if you put up a 150inch wide screen, with the sony which will lose lumens after a while[12-1500 new bulb]..i strongly suggest a 2.4 hipower screen. i have a 2.4 168incher and its great with a brand new bulb.did have a 144incher before that. you will like the brightness, not the dimness..check this forum for true lumen output of the projector..i wouldnt go over 10ft wide with a no gain screen..good luck

samalmoe,
My screen is EluneVision 4K Reference 150" 16:9 with 2.40 gain.
Many said that with 2.40 gain you are practically look into the sun, so bright.
Manufacturer said: You will experience watching a true BIG SCREEN LCD TV ???
I need more brightness for my aging eyes.
I am anxious after I mounted it, how bright it is, and how good it is?

urgent. With a 2.4 gain screen you will have hot spotting if you mount a close throw. With that screen I suggest you mount it at the longest throw possible which on the Sony is around 2.27. This is a very serious and significant issue. I would put the projector on a table and experiment with throw distances. close throw at 1.25 screen widths will give you horrible results. Go long. Experiment to make sure you do not overfill the screen. do not ignore this advice.
