I will take a closer look tonight during football. I would assume a 30 minute warmup would be more than enough. I have 11 months left on the warranty so, I have a bit of time.

I don't see what you see and neither does anyone else. We see the output of your camera - compressed - on displays that for all you know could be upside down and have a neon green tint.

My point is that screenshots are 100% useless for anything but showing very obvious defects. The feet are a nice touch though.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Exactly.

Raise the black level on the display that you're viewing the pictures on and you'll be able to count all ten toes.

Can I make the picture smaller?

Does the 5030 have a setting to make the picture smaller?

I tried a 140in projection size last night, and with 1.85:1 or 2.39:1 content like "The martian" it looks incredible, but pop in something that uses the full 16:9 screen and it looks gigantic, almost unbearable. I am projecting on the wall for now while I determine my comfortable screen size and would like to say 140, but be able to make it smaller for 16:19 content. Something like 120 or 110 is more pleasant at my viewing distance of 12ft or so.

Can this be done outside the projector? by a processor or receiver?

I don't understand what you mean.. There is a zoom on the top of the projector. If you mean a way to do it with a remote control - then no.

For anyone that has done a warranty service/swap-out with Epson and received a refurbished projector (6030UB in my case); Is the bulb that comes with it brand new?

I am still awaiting the refurbished projector to arrive and the defective unit (after nearly 3 years of heavy usage) finally gave up on me I'm afraid. I had just changed the bulb less than 500hrs ago though, and that is what makes me curious as to what I can expect from the bulb in the refurbs...

Many thanks for any info!

My understanding is it can be a lamp with up to 500 hours. When I did the swap, they sent one with a brand new lamp though.

Does anyone have any advice on where to sell my used 5030? Despite the hasstle of running new HDMI cables and replacing my Lumagen, etc, I'm really tempted by the 5040 Thanks in advance!

Epson 5030ub Audio not in Sync?

Anyone else here experience the audio not being in sync? I tried a few movies and I can notice that the audio is not in sync , my last projector was Epson 8100 and had no issues with audio not being in sync, but this projector bought new last week and I notice that the sound is not in sync with the lips movement, is there a fix to this? any advice would be great thanks. its slightly off not extreme but its there and I notice it, so it does bug me.

There's about 130ms of lag if you have FI enabled. Either turn FI and maybe super resolution off or correct it with your AVR.

This is pretty common. Most audio receivers and many source components (e.g. BD players) have an option for adding a small delay to fix it. For example, on my Onkyo receiver it's called A/V Sync.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

So I should turn frame interpolation off to see if that solves the problem?

On my Harmon kardon receiver I tried the a/v sync from 0-80 and still nothing improved

Tried both looks a bit better but still not perfect
Is there other projectors with equivalent picture quality with no audio sync delay?

Almost all digital displays have some lag. There is a lot of consternation about it on these forums, particularly with gamers. Read the last section on this page,

http://www.projectorcentral.com/epso...ge=Performance

The only way to fix it 100% is to use an audio delay setting either in the AVR or maybe your player/streamer/etc... Some projectors are a bit better than the 5030.

I missed this post a bit ago. That's odd that you can't get there with the AVR. It should have changed one way or the other (gotten better or worse depending on which way it's off). For the lag I'm talking about the video will always be behind the sound. If the video is ahead of the sound, then something else is wrong.
