By the way, what universal remote are you using for the RS-232 compatibility?
No remote yet. Good (and topical) question.
Besides a CIH masking system, that is the next big thing on my "To Do" list.
I posted some thoughts above
and copied this from my ramblings/summaries on post #1 of this thread:
for HT and HVAC and lighting - need to read up on RS-232 controls - options
(eg, need component control - screen masking (pending), CineSlide, vertical stretch, Lumagen RadianceXE modes)
(? can you trigger 2.35:1 button on Lumagen to activate CineSlide - yes, but how do you not activate it when you switch back and forth from 2.35/16:9 modes in Lumagen to look at menus on the bottom of screen)
A friend of mine (RTI owner) suggested I look at AMX for multiple functions a-lens/masking (pending)/HVAC/lighting control.
However, with 2 young kids a $5K (?? retail -- from a 2004 review - not sure how accurate now ??) remote + box + programming might (
) be overkill.
I may actually get a more "garden variety" remote like logitech or something for my gym room - LCD, cable, DVD, BR -- and try playing with programming that myself to figure out more about what I really want/need.
Other than that, I hopefully am slowed down for a while on upgrades or even tweaking.
Better to enjoy some of the summer and then actually watch some movies at night.
I'll likely add/change some in the winter when I'm in hibernation mode.
