I think things must be moving around in the archive because I had it booked marked as well and now its gone. Here is Rics original Ruby Calibration thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...y+service+code
Luckily I did make a copy of my post on the iris tweak from the archive last time I found it and here it is:
The following is a DIY, when ever in the service menu proceed at your own risk as you may cause damage to your projector !
re in the good ole USA
A simple adjustment will turn your Ruby into a light canon.
Anyone complaining about the Ruby not having enough light your going to like this simple adjustment in the service menu.
Out of the box "Iris off" is brighter then "Iris Auto"...were going to change that.
Do not worry about the change we are about to make in the service menu. When you power down the projector and power it back on for the next viewing it will default back to factory settings unless while your in the service menu you choose to save to memory after your done making your changes so this is a harmless experiment
Do not choose "save to memory"
Make sure your projector is set to "Iris Auto"
This tweak will only effect the " Iris Auto" mode.
Go into service mode: On the remote hit enter, enter, left, enter, up.
Now pull up the menu and go to the very bottom selection and right courser.
Now go to "Other"
Now go to number 44. For safety right down the default setting. Were only going to change number 44. Do not change anything else. After you have written down the factor setting change it to 100.
Now back out of the menu without doing a save.
You should now have one hell of a bright picture. Blacks are still excellent.
Now toggle between Iris off and Auto Iris and you will not believe how dim Iris off is yet that use to be the bright mode. You will have a hard time going back to the default setting.
Give it a try. Let me know what you think.
