So here you are. You have your results.
Of course i went back to 106.
BTW, the measurement were on a calibrated profile based on Dynamic and at around 800 hours lamp.
I'M SORRY, I CAN'T HELP IT, IT'S TOO FUNNY.
But I'm really sorry, I forgot how much work it was indeed till now hahaha.
Okey,... but this means it is my lamp.
I have to say that your lamp is even much dimmer than mine.
13+fL on a 106 in Dynamic???
Was this in Dynamic Eco or Normal?
If this is what we can expect, than I believe my projector will only do 500 hours MAX, and I need to replace the bulb again.
3D was not funny anymore.
Maybe the problem is that we also watch movies on our Plasma.
Going back to projection,...
Well, Thank You Very Much from all of us.
This saves us a lot of work.
I leave my projector on 106 also.
I have 2 screens in my ceiling.
I'll use the 120"-White when the bulb is new, and turn to 106"-HC when it reaches 400 hours or so.
I like to use Eco mode, cause in Normal mode the projector is noisy.
Or we both have a bad bulb???
