Thanks.

The settings here worked great for me.

See ya. Dave

Jive, I still don't see the settings...excuse my ignorance.

Is it the screenshots of each menu? Or somewhere else?

I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

Does going with the max zoom have a negative impact on image quality? I'm trying to avoid relocating a ceiling fan but that means maxing the zoom @ 1.52X to get the 110" image size I want. Does the zoom factor have any impact on how much image shift I can use?

I'm having trouble posting on AVS. If this goes through, I'll edit with a link.

Use the Gain and Bias settings, and put in User the "User" settings. Leave the RCP off.

See ya. Dave

Good question. I just received this projector today from AV Science. My forth projector from them.

I am dying to buy the Xpand RF 3D system, but like others, I am waiting for the Sony specific cable.

If anyone from Expand is monitoring this thread, please update us on availability.

Well decided after cedia to go ahead and order a 55es from craig @avs , here's hoping it lives up to the hype! Replacing my pro8100 which has been fantastic, but doesn't do 3D and is approaching lamp death =)

From a quick google search, two sites have this projector for ~$2700 (abes of Maine and NJAccessory). In order for Sony to honor their own warranty, you have to purchase the unit from Sony or a sony authorized dealer? I feel like this projector is a steal for $1300 off. I was planning on getting the AE-8000u because of lens memory, but I feel like it wouldn't be too big of a hassle to manually zoom into a 2.35:1 image, every now and then.

I haven't read through all 46 pages, but does anyone have this projector projecting onto a 2.35 screen @ 120" wide (not diagonal)?
My theater room will be 13'8" so I feel like a 10' wide screen would be perfect in it. If any of you do, could you please comment on the brightness? I will have a completely blackened room, black walls, ceiling, carpet, and sofas with red accent colors.

I really like the fact that you can adjust each LCD panel if convergence issues ever arise, to me that sounds like this projector would last a good 5-10 years, with normal lamp changes.

I look forward to hearing from you guys!

Sony wont honor the warranty if you buy from a dealer who is not authorized.

I have a 144" diagonal screen and it's plenty bright for me. My room size is similar, check out my HT build thread The-dreamatorium-13x19ft-room. I use a HTPC as a front-end and it handles zooming/cropping black bars for 2.35 content.

What do you use to carry out zooming etc using a HTPC?

Yes, HTPC running XBMC. I've been meaning to post pictures of how XBMC handles variable aspect ratio movies but I haven't got round to it yet.
