Right now the odds on achieving world peace are lower than the odds on such a screen being created. Sorry if I am too optimistic.

Its looking good, but not for the Money it cost !

Gosh. How about they use adaptive optics to deform a high gain screen in response to your head position, similar to astro telescopes?

Not terribly cost effective, but easier than world peace. My most promising ideas on that front involve things like meteors and tidal waves.

After all, this is the $3,000 and up forum. This falls under "and up."

Hardware Update to 1100ES can change Gamut response?

Hi to all,
In the past years I've calibrated 4/5 Sony VPL-VW1000 and always the projector in REC.709 preset (by default) reproduce colors near refs.
The DCI mode reproduced a widest gamut but with a massive loss of light force.

In the past days I'm turned back to recalibrate one of those Sonys.
I've calibrated this unit one year ago when it was band new and gived the usual good results.

Yesterday this machine has some strange response, it has colors collapsed (desaturated) down into Rec.709 space ... specially Blu and Green if I remind well.
Also If I switch to DCI presets colors saturate not a lot to do a perfect Rec.709 calibration.
This is clearly visible also with the human eye.

I've checked this also connecting directly Oppo to the Projector and remains the same. I've changed also the HDMI cable but the problem persists.
I'm pretty shure that the problem is in the projector.

This unit has only two differences respect the first time I've calibrated it:
1) It is UPGRADED by Sony to the 1100ES;
2) It has a compatible UHP lamp (the original lamp was sostituied months ago) installed by the customer.

I'm thinking that this strange situation is reputable to the not original lamp but ...

Do you have some experience like this after the 1100ES upgrade? Obviously I'm talkin with those who has knowledge and meters to do affidable readings of the color response of the projector.....

Many thanks.

I do not remember this, sorry.
I've performed the calibration in the REFERENCE main preset (like before).

Just filed a claim with Mack bulb warranty and I was told that bulbs are backordered 60-65 days. Truth or BS? Last time I got a replacement for my Ruby bulb I had to purchase bulb and then they sent me a check about 3 months later.

I've gotten two bulbs from them for the vw1100 in the past three years and both times I had it within a week or so of starting the claim.

I got several lamps from Mack for my JVC RS1 and RS20, and two now for my Sony1100; in all cases I got the lamps from AVS and was then reimbursed by Mack. But yes, in some cases it took several months for the check to arrive.

I filed a claim about Feb. 9 and supposedly mine is shipping out this coming week. I never heard anything back from them until I checked with them this past week so maybe they lost my claim.

The Sony uses a universal power supply that will run no matter whether US voltages or foreign. PM mike G for the AV Science price. I believe list is about $800 but is widely discounted.

As Mark stated bulbs are a universal item, not like trying to buy a bulb for your ceiling lamp say . If I remember correctly when I had to do a bulb in my 1000 I was able to get one for less than $A600 from Sony Aus. I can't find the invoice in my emails any more to confirm as it was late 2013.

They have apparently changed their procedure policy. It never made sense to me that you could buy a lamp at full MSRP and then they would reimburse that amount while discounts were available from authorized sources. This way they buy in bulk and get the discount guaranteed. Either way this warranty is the best bargain in HT.

Its just a bulb warranty. I am quite sure that what they expect is for people to either forget they have it, or not use the projector enough to make use of the warranty. Otherwise it would be a horrible business for them. I paid about $200 I think for the warranty and have received two $700 bulbs.

The vast majority of people do not put enough hours on their lamp during the warranty period for it to wear out. Only a small percentage of people use enough to wear out or have a lamp that actually goes bad. Also as you said some forget about warranty or lose the warranty.

How many years is the warranty for? You can purchase it at any time?

They have a few hoops.

You have to purchase it within 30 days of buying the projector. You then have to immediately register it (how that is not done by you just buying it from them with all the projector info you give at the time of sale, who knows). Then, if you want to file a claim, you had better have the original email showing the purchase. They try to find a way to deny. But like I said, in the end, I got two expensive bulbs for almost nothing. I would buy this on every bulb projector I ever get.
