I am using the component output of a Sony 7700 in the CI. I also tried the S-Video, but the same results. I have tried putting a macrobuster on the green side of the component output, but same problem. Here are a few pictures I took of the inside of the blue lens as well as a screen shot of how it affects the picture. I am only testing the CI thanks to Hi-Rez, but if I cannot resolve the problem, the increase in picture clarity and controls do not outway the use of the DVDO that works well....

My suspicion was that I was over-driving the projector and it was having some trouble with the signal.
Does it happen with all refresh rates? Or just the higher ones? Try 800x600, that should work and provide a very stable image. 720p should be ok too.
1) A computer at 800x600 or 1024x768 at 60Hz to the projector produces a normal image.(Signal passes through the same cable I have connected to the CI)
2) If I swap the cable to the second input on my ECP (I have a dual BNC card), 98% of the distortion is gone. There is just a small edge on the right hand side, but it does not seem to be enough to notice it on the screen.
After speaking with Joel at Hi-Rez he wants me to try a pass through card(a 2 BNC card, but one is an input the other is a passthrough which will be terminated). According to him many of the dual card had problems with some doublers/scalers. I should have the card in a few days and will test it with the CI. From what I have found there definatly some compatibility problem with the CI and ECP. Hopefully I can find the right combination to fix the problem since the CI does produce a much better picture than my DVDO....

I've used my laptop to drive my ECP 4101 with no problems at 800x600 and 1024x768.

On my own C.I. with 5.2 software, the Frame Sync must be in the "ON" mode. Also, you might consider trying to 're-set' the C.I. before proceeding. You should have received a single page with the C.I. which explains how to use the arrow controls on the front panel to re-set the C.I. to the native resolution of your projector. Note: if you do this, write down any memorized settings. It's likely that re-setting will wipe the memory.
