As a friend, I seriously doubt there will ever be a projector that you would be happy owning for the long haul. Projectors are like the getting married. With a marriage, the odds are high that unhappiness will arise with a 50 percent chance of a divorce happening.


Being married to AV science projector forums pretty much guarantees that one after just a few years (in your case a month or so) will become unhappy. At least you don't get hitched to any projector. you just say it was nice, you really do some things really well, but I want something different. I know my next one will do some things better that you do better, but not everything and perhaps many things not as well. But I will go on searching for perfection. I know it doesn't exist but getting fresh meat every month or so is so much fun.

It would appear that the Sony DIs make based on the content of the frame certain delta adjustments to the gamma curve you select or create. The deltas are the same regardless of what you select as the base gamma curve. So the base curve could affect whether the high end will clip or not depending on your curve at the high end. Now what is the difference between auto limited or full. it has been reported that the iris closes down to the same extent at the dark end. What does it do for the high end. does it open up the same or more? I think it opens up more. What happens to the deltas? Do they remain the same at all points or do the high end deltas increase. Is more engine boost applied by lowering the high end gamma?

Thanks. I new not to calibrate whilst Auto iris is on. I didn't realise there was no way to set the Auto iris fl.

There's definitely some truth in this. The good thing is that there are only so many projectors out there and I've already seen 99% of the ones I wanted to see. The only one I'm waiting to see is JVCs rebuttal to Sony's 4K projectors. Hopefully they will show it off at CEDIA 2015.

the projector journey is not complete until after you've bought and sold the wolf cinema DCX-500i in the classified section.

it's only 30k, has no warranty, no 3D capability, and has an extremely expensive lamp. I'll be waiting for the report.

30K for a 3 chip DLP that was first introduced in 2008.

So, can anyone confirm please that, according to Seegs108, the firmware for the 1100ES is upgradable via RS-232 since this projector does not have a USB port? Thanks.

I'd like to know anybody that's done it, because I don't see how you get the file or how you do it without being a service tech at least.

While the update process is done via RS-232, it needs to be done by a Sony technician. I don't think they release these firmware files publicly like they do for the 600ES.

So then how would one know:

1. When new firmware updates are available;
2. Who to contact at Sony to initiate a firmware update process;
3. If the update would be done in house or would one have to bring the projector to Sony;
4. If there would be a cost associated with the upgrade, and what would that be?

Thank you.

Talk to your dealer. They can find out for you. Most likely it will need to be sent in to the Sony service center in Texas to get an update. Though, I see you're in Canada so it would be sent to the Sony service center in Canada, where ever that may be.

Has anyone here updated the firmware for their 1100ES? Is it necessary? Has Sony added new features or corrected issues through firmware since the product was made available at the end of 2013? Sending the unit out to a Sony Centre would be too costly, risky and too much of a hassle, I'd say.

In my opinion, firmware updates are necessary when product manufacturers rush their products to the market and fine-tune them afterwards through updates.

That statement is true but is non inclusive of why software revisions are made. I do not believe it necessary for me to list them here because they are obvious to most here.

Since the 1100 is based on the 1000 and that product has been well vetted, I doubt that there is a software update for the 1100. About the only feature the 1100 does not have that has been requested is vertical stretch for 4K and that is never going to happen. Not enough processing power.

Vetted is such a nice sophisticated word to use and its easy to spell.


The simplest way to stay current re software updates is to go to the Sony e support and look up your projector model. One can go to the service menu and look up the various eproms one has installed too. Updates of these do require return for factory service but one should not worry very much if one does not have all the latest. most really do not affect the majority of uses the machine will be put threw.
