  3. In the ID3 Setting popup window, Click the box that says Real Time if you want each change you make to the curves to be automatically uploaded to the projector. Each update takes maybe a second to send, so it definitely won't slow you down. If you don't like this idea, you can just click Send every now and then.
  4. Start playing around with the curves!
.

Are corrections made to the currently selected gamma profile in the projector settings menu and permanently saved in that slot or is it something applied overall?

wow, my first post for like a year or so I think...


I'm trying to remember how this worked, since I lost custody of the laptop I used for this and haven't done it for awhile...


Once you edit and save an altered gamma for that setting, that gamma is permanently saved in that slot, so the old profile is overwritten with the new settings. I'm pretty sure that I saved the original gamma files to my laptop first so that I would have the original curves to restore back to factory if needed.


What I did, if I remember correctly, was that I picked a couple of the Gamma settings that were so far off being useful, and I used them to tweak. That way if I screwed everything up, no real harm!


Once you get in there (assuming you're patient and sufficiently OCD and nerdy to want to do this), it's actually pretty straightforward. It's time-consuming, but you don't need to do it often, and the results are spectacular.


... which reminds me, it's about time to re-calibrate.... maybe after the festivities tonight!

Dear AVS Forum folks,
My Sony VW95ES projector and my motorized screen they both have the RS-232 interface connection. I have never connected them through it. I have a likely silly question: do you believe I could make use of this connection to lower or lift the screen up, whenever I powered the projector on or off? There is no instructions describing the usage option of the RS-232 interface on this PJ`s user manual.
Let me thank you in advance for any information you may provide on this.

My HT Gear:
Sony VPL-VW95ES / Panamorph A480SYS / EluneVision 2.40:1 143" CinemaScope Screen / Yamaha CX-A5000 / Oppo BDP-95 / Pioneer DV-47Ai / Crown XLS 1000 x 3 / Crown XLS 1500 x 1 / Crown XLS 2000 x 1 / Axiom M80Ti x 3 / Axiom QS8 x 2 / Yamaha NS-E105 x 2 / Yamaha NS-E60 x 2 / SVS PB12-Plus / Mirrage BPS-400 / Buttkicker x 2 / Aura Transducer x 2

sorry but this sound dramatic or ridiculous to me...
where are the specs defining the "not low" usage to avoid problems? how many hours per year are suggested to avoid gamma and gamut collapse? if there are no specs then these "problems" has to be considered under warranty or just normal?

is, as usual, a problem coming from an user unable to use it properly (tipical excuse) or is maybe coming from something different considering that after few hundreds hours those projectors (HW50/HW90/HW95... and the HW55 that inside is almost the same as HW50?) are (sometimes?) unable to respect some specific reference as REC709 and gamma 2,2?

do we have to consider normal that a user, to bring the unit back to good perfomance conditions, has to "play" with Image Director (if he has the proper cable + the proper sensor + the sufficient knowledge + etc. ) only after few hours? (hundreds not thousands)...where is this clearly communicate/specify in the official documentation from Sony?

My bulb is getting close to 2000 hours. Figured it's time to get another one. Does anyone have any suggestions for a new bulb? Just stick with Sony, or ? And where's a good place to buy one?


I've been enjoying this projector so much, I have not even logged onto this projector forum for over a year. But I suppose...It's probably time to start thinking about 4K.

I suggest waiting for CEDIA in October before you consider a jump to 4K. There will most likely be a few more options out there to consider.

1) stick with real Sony, they are priced reasonably compared to other brands (JVC) so no need to get inventive.

2) if it ain't broke don't try to fix it.

Ya, I supose you have a point. Problem is, then I wait till owners have it, then by that time, I'm waiting for CEDIA 2016. It's a never ending cycle. I would however like my next move to be lazer.

When a projector in my price range supports this and software reviews are in then I will know it's time:

http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/uhd-bd-201501053979.htm

That is all that matters, I never pay any attention to CES or CEDIA cycles.

My local Sony dealer gave me a great price on the lamp. You can also try AVS.

Yes generally that is true, but the reason to wait seems more compelling now than ususal. By this time next year many of us are expecting to see e-shift/fake-4K units replaced with true 4K, filters for DCI (expanded gamut) and support for full 18 Gb/s HDMI with HDCP 2.2. Of course at that point people will be saying to wait another year for the gen 2 versions and any kinks to be worked out and prices to drop. But for those that can wait until such models arrive (hopefully post CEDIA 15) they will be more future proof.

Hi LD - You still have your 95? I have apparently been following your lead the past several years with video gear.


I haven't been keeping up on projectors. Not at all.... I just assumed 'real' 4K was already here on the sub 10K units. I also use a Lumagen XS, so when I do 'upgrade', it'll be expensive, especially if I upgrade the audio processer too. So I'm in no hurry!

Good point. I'm still liking my VW95 a lot, got a second lamp from AVS and still going strong. Will be watching and waiting for the next generation of projectors to mature a bit. If I didn't already have this good projector I'd be happy to buy the current new items, but not with the expectation of watching much true 4K content on it anytime soon.
