I contacted them and they are getting back with me as they said it should have been in the box. They may have to contact Sony they said.

I am interested in knowing if anyone on the forum is using the IR IN of this projector to control it and if so what IR receiver they are using. I have this projector ceiling mounted and am looking for a way to control it with IR signals coming from the back of the projector. I tried the Monoprice 5-Feet IR Extender Cable Receiver (108060) without any luck but this same IR receiver works fine with my Verizon Fios STB and is able to control it. Any ideas?

I had problems with my IR IN to the point that I knew there was something wrong with the projector but decided it wasn't worth taking it down (ceiling mounted) and sending it to Sony since I was going to use RS232 anyway. Hope you have better luck than me finding a solution...

Thanks for the response. I called the Sony support line and the tech said that any IR receiver should work but didn't know why the Monoprice one does not work with the projector. He was also unable to recommend any receivers that are known to work with it.

For what it's worth I got a monoprice one and it doesn't work in mine either, and nor does it work in my anthem receiver either

I've played around with a number of Monoprice IR units. The 108060 is the same unit that comes with their HDMI over CAT6 wallplate, and it's only single band IR (meaning it won't work with all remotes / devices).


The IR receiver that comes with their IR Repeater (9895) seems to work with everything that I've plugged it into. I don't have the Sony projector (yet - theater is still under construction, so it'll be a few more weeks), but I'd be willing to bet if you pulled the IR Receiver out of the box that comes with the 9895 unit, it would work, and the 108060 won't because the band of IR for the projector isn't covered in the 108060.


Whenever I use one of their HDMI over Cat5/Cat6 wall plates, I throw away the IR receiver (same as the 108060 unit), and use one from the 9895 instead...YMMV of course with the projector, but if I were to bet...I'd say it would work there as well.

Thanks for the info. Do you know the type of connector on the IR receiver? HW55ES expects mini jack for the IR in. It was not clear from the manual for the unit though it looked like a mini jack. Anyway at that price I am thinking of ordering one since even if the IR in does not work I can still use the unit itself to relay the signals to the IR sensor in the front of the projector.

Will the Sony HW55ES be better than an old JVC (RS55 / X70)? I'm torn between the two right now they're being offered to me for the same price.

I have calibrated mine to the best of my ability but after messing with some of the extra settings I do like the picture better with the cinema black pro lamp brightness on the low setting but whenever I use it and a scene in a movie comes on with a bright image I see a lot of flickering in the brightness. Is this normal and or has anyone been able to calibrate it out?

Check if "Film Projection" in the Motionflow menu is set to "Off".

I did check this to be sure it was off, it does create a similar effect but its not quite as noticeable as the flicker i'm seeing and its only in lighter scenes.

Use it in high lamp mode for 5-6 hours and then back to low lamp

Use it in high lamp mode for 5-6 hours and then back to low lamp
I have used it in high for about 40hrs already and it still reverts right back to flickering. I'll play around with the calibration again to see if I can get rid of it.

Just been watching IMAX Hubble in 3D and randomly the video signal keeps dropping and comes back the glasses lose sync when the video comes back on they sync back up.

I can always hear audio just the video goes and comes back, only goes for a second or two.

I am using a PS3 for my bluray player and going through a Yamaha RXV-675.

Some times the picture flickers and I get two white lines at the top of the image it's like it losing sync or something.

Any ideas?

What HDMI cable are you using?
What is your throw distance?
What is your viewing distance?
What screen are you using?

If 2D never drops out and 3D does, then it is the HDMI cable. When I say drop out, I mean, no picture on the screen. If the glasses are losing sync, then you may have too much total distance, as in projector to screen, to viewer. You can correct this by getting the external emitter and placing near the front of the theater or go to RF. That is why I asked you all those questions. Also need to know specific HDMI cable, not just manufacturer.

Crap. Wished I had held out a bit longer before buying mine from you guys. I'm a very "thrifty" oriented fellow.

As soon as we heard a sale was coming, we told all customers that called in for pricing. Would not feel right selling at regular price, knowing a sale was coming.

I shouldn't whine, and I apologize for doing so. I got a good price and the free lamp deal when I bought My 55ES from AVS. I also got a good deal on a Denon 5200 last week.

Honestly, the 55ES is worth full retail if one had to pay it.

See ya. Dave
