Outstanding, Don! This post immediately got a bookmark from me (and I don't give those out very often)!

Maybe we can convince David to give this a "special place" within the "DLP, LCD, D-ILA Projectors" forum, so it doesn't get buried deep in the site in a few days.

Ideally, a link on the top of the forum to this FAQ that would be always available would be fantastic. What do you think, David?

Anyway, great work, Don! This is what all of the folks just getting into D-ILA need to become familiar with the technology. Instead of wading through the current posts "dazed and confused", they can jump to the FAQ and get the background on the state of things.

I would like to nominate Jeffrey as the DILA FAQ policeman...

Whenever this FAQ gets too low in the forum, it is your job to move it back up! If it should ever fall off the first page of topics...you're fired!

Don,

Nice work and I appreciate the mention of my site, www.large-screen.com, in your listing.

Although keeping the site up to date is not my day job, I'll do my best to keep pertinent information available. Feel free to send me anything you might like to see readily available there, I'm certainly open to suggestions.

This forum has become a valuable resource in helping drive the development of D-ILA based HT units...stay tuned.

Regards,

I had to go down three pages to find this today ! Far too low, and time to pop again. Seems to need it about every five days.

Maybe David Botts (the webmaster of this site) can "pin" this post to the top of the group, so we don't have to massage it to the top as often.

It shouldn't be hard to "hard-code" a link at the top of the forum that links straight to this FAQ.

How about it, David?

This DILA FAQ is the best!. I have a friend coming over with his HTPC to hook up to my G11, so I thought I'd better have this close to the top.

Moving up...with a comment...

Don, can you add the very informative ProjectorCentral review of how DILA compares with DLP and LCD to the FAQ? It goes into the pros and cons of the G11 vs. the Sony 10HT vs. the Davis/DreamVision DLPs.
http://www.projectorcentral.com/cons...cfm?ci=jvc_g11

As you might have guessed, the review says that:
  • The DILA makes more noise and heat than other digital projectors.
  • The bulbs are more expensive.
  • The picture quality simply blows away the other digital projectors!
  • If you can put up with #1 and #2 above, have a price range of &lt;$10,000 and have high-quality feeds (DVD, HDTV), the DILA
    Quote:
    "totally smokes the Sony VW10HT and the Sharp DW100U. There is simply no contest."
    (ProjectorCentral quote from the article)
  • The article goes into more detail on each of the above.

Anyway, I thought that would make a good addition to the FAQ, for anyone doing comparision shopping. It helps you to decide what the pros and cons are of the different technologies. If ultimate image quality outweighs any of the cons, it sounds like the current choice to beat.

Mark,
I added to my first post under the "comparisons" section. Thanks for the link. Hope all is going well with your progress on the Dilard software. We all appreciate the amount of time and effort you are expending on our behalf.
