Ok another update: I'm not sure if my Bluerigger HDMI to DVI cable is the problem or not. Using nvidia's control panel, I have the projector's 1024x768 native resolution selected in the control panel.
However, image quality is very soft, a bit blurry (it's not the focus ring). I paused a SD DVD that looks fine with my DVI to VGA equipped Optoma PT100 pj and everything looks fine but with the AAXA and HDMI to DVI, text is blurry. The only way to describe the text is 'smudged', not sharp at all.
If it matters, the AAXA pj is HDMI 1.2 compatible and I believe the Bluerigger cable is the latest 1.4 protocol.
Could that be the cause?
There is no SDE, the picture is very smooth but not defined or sharp and it's no fun to watch. Help guys!
