Why not rely on digital alignment? Can you qualify your statement? Thanks!

You can only compensate a little with the software,if the unit is that badly out of alignment needs to be swapped out

I had a 55es for a while and the unit seemed to be very sharp compared to the jvc 4910 and epson 6030.

I'm not saying it won't help, certainly try it, all I'm saying is that it really shouldn't be soft it all out of the box.

With panel alignment you want to use whole pixels and get it within a 1/2 pixel. Many of the alignment systems use two pixels to make one. They vary the light between the two pixels so you have something like 10 increments of convergence for one pixel of adjustment. When using this method of varying the light between two pixels to get perfect alignment you are often giving up sharpness/ resolution and it is better to move it in whole pixels and get it as close as possible. You should be able to get it less than half of a pixel offset using whole pixels but don't expect perfection. This will help with sharpness/resolution. I use a magnifying glass when making pixel and level adjustments so I can see exactly where the pixels are located how the convergence is working. 3 pixels off is quite a bit and the unit might need replacement.

I'm not sure Im counting pixels correctly... actually the image does not throw that much of a clear pixel structure, no matter how focused I get the projector. It's probably off by at least 1 pixel, and in some cases I see more than that.

Here are a few pictures:

These are taken with Pixel Alignment OFF, factory default.
The LAST image shows what it looks like when I adjust the panels, it seems to mess up the color balance on the left side...

That is more than a convergence problem. I would return it and get another one.

iRule Setup

Can anyone share the steps required to get this thing working with a RS-232 connection with an iTach Flex? I am using the following settings:

Baud: 38400
Flow Control: None
Parity: Even
Data Bits: 8
Stop Bits: 1
Crossover: False

I am having no luck getting any commands to my projector. Any troubleshooting tips?

Let me just take the opportunity to say, dealing with Craig @avscience has been fantastic. Very responsive, professional and accommodating. I could not be happier with the level of service provided and will undoubtedly deal with again. Now fingers crossed that the replacement works out for me.
