I see what happened there: your son actually built the screen, meanwhile you were playing with the little pony at the back of the room.



Looking forward for more pics when your son is done hang it. Brian...........do something man! Help your kid or at least stop playing around.....LOL

Stunning picture. And having an AT screen is the biggest thing to get the true theater feeling!!!

Dude, you are going to get nothing done setting a screen and PJ this early in the build. I made sure that was the last thing I did. You better put that stuff away for a few months. That screen looks so much bigger up on the wall than it did on the floor.

haha...well here's the deal...I do NOT have the money to even remotly start the build (we just bought this house and the mortgage went up from our last) I am about a year out from full blown construction...with the intent of doing little by little in the meantime if possible...(maybe framing...then do one wall...etc....basically do as much each time I have a little more saved up)

so I figured enjoy it now, instead of keeping everything boxed up until I can afford the build...

That makes sense. I just got done my build and it was fairly expensive. Half of my problem was that I had to do exterior work to make this all happen. That was allot of my cost and then the stuff that you find and never thought about. But yeah, plug away a little at a time, you will get there.

Does anyone play their 3D content via a media server?
I have never been too fond of 3D movies but since all my hardware seems to support it, I decided to give it a try.

I am using XBMC to stream movies to the 8000 via a Denon 3313ci. I have several 3D titles ripped into .mkv or BDMV containers.
The problem is while XBMC does recognize the 3D format just fine, the movie plays top-bottom and all I can see is the two halfs on the screen. It does not look 3D at all. Just the movie split in two. Like you'd expect if weren't wearing 3D glasses.
I am using the cheap but good Incredisonic Vue Series VSUI-1600 glasses every one recommended to work well with the 8000. And in fact they do. If I set the projector to convert 2D to 3D the 3D comes through just fine.

It is as though the Panasonic is not detecting the 3D content of the stream. I have the 3D menu set to AUTO. If I manually set it to top-bottom, THEN, everything goes 3D.
I do not own a blueray player so I can't test with anything else, but I'd have expected this projector will flip onto 3D mode if the content was 3D. Does it not?

Any one seen this happening? or have any suggestions?

Thanks

Does anybody have settings for the PJ. Kind of like the plasma calibration threads?

I am using rec702. What is everyone using. Also my 3d I ant find the best setting. They all seem pretty dark. Any thoughts or help where I an look for calibration inputs?

Hi Brian, not sure if sharing settings is the right thing as the performance of the PJ will vary depending on room, lighting conditions, etc.

But what I do in terms of watching regular and 3D movies, this is what I can share with you:

  • For regular BluRay discs I'm also using Rec702 and the lamp in Eco mode.
  • Now, in the case of 3D I switch to Normal and lamp power to Normal too.


Finally, I purchased the following calibration discs:

Disney WOW


Spears & Munsil

@Winchy ,

You can change the position of the pj transparent menu as a option in the pj menu to put it back on the screen centered.

Yeah, try with Normal and Dynamic on the lamp. See which one you like the best. As you can imagine, that is taking a bit of life on the lamp, but I don't think you are watching 3D movies all the time. Just make sure you set everything back the way that it was before after you are done watching a 3D movie. Have fun and report back.

About the discs, well the Disney's WOW is a bit more simple to use. S&M has a bit more features to calibrate, so it just depends how much time do you want to spend with the calibration. But, knowing you..................you will ended up buying both........just like a did........

Normal / normal makes for AMAZING 3d. And I appreciate letting me know it kills the lamp a bit faster. But less than half of the movies are 3d. So it will only be once in a while

Thanks C-lo. I think I'll grab the WOW disc to start

Good call! I purchased the WOW first, so you should be able to improve PQ out of your Panny in no time.

Cheers!
