So how is a transparent menu "getting better the resolution" or "there is a better picture resolution" (their words in both cases)? Either both Sony people are getting it wrong or there is more to the 1.06 upgrade than people think?

Also, why all the secrecy? Why is the software information for internal use only? What are they hiding?

Sounds like it improved the video processing software to me. Maybe to make it about the same as they can compared to the new VW60?

Hey Mark Happy belated Thanksgiving to you too and everyone here at AVS!!! Sorry for the late reply. Checking email and surfing AVS isn't so easy here in the war zone. Too much work to do trying to catch that Taliban leader a$$hole and his loser followers!!!

Can you give me and your loyal followers here your unbiased synopsis of the differences between the mighty Pearl and the new VW60?

I am condsidering it with either a Schneider or ISCO anamorphic lens in my newly upgraded demo theater.

For me Dave in a word:

Sharper.

The 50 was good but the 60 is that much better and the anamorphic zoom with my U380 lense is fantastic.

You of course are more then welcome to stop over my new house and check it out.

Very nice Mark That's quite an upgrade compared to that crappy 1st gen SIM2 DLP I saw the first time I was there But of course your Barco was nice Are you still in the same place in town with the cool attic theater?

Geez, with all this knight stuff, I'd think you're an employee or regular at the PA Rennaisance Faire

And I still miss my Barco.... but with 2.35:1 and moving the projector outside the theater room I was left with little choice....

Actually I moved about 5 miles north out into the country side and the theater is now in a basement.

Also Dave, with a last name like Knight I really had little choice for a theater theme... now if I was Mark Skywalker I could have really done something cool! ...

THE OLD:



And the NEW:

I bought one of the first Pearls to come into the country. I am beginning to see (at least I think I am just beginning to see it) some red/green fringing. Does anyone know if there is anyway for the convergence to change over time on this projector. It seemed to be spot on when I first got it 1 1/2 years ago.
