Ohh you can do that. I need to do check into how to do this. I have 2.40 setup as a saved setting and I'm in a CIH setup as well, but I didn't know I could adjust bulb brightness mode with that memory setting too.

That's wasn't flying... That was falling with style!

You can't! One needs to switch the Eco setting manually each time.

Ugh. I hear a new buzzing noise as it tries to turn on, to the left of the lens as I face the lens, I think, like a misaligned fan blade whacking against an obstacle, and she won't come to life. This happened about a month ago so I opened her up, made sure the lamp and everything was well seated, put it back together, cleaned the filter, and it seemed fine, but now it seems to be a recurring issue. Anyone?
Is the 8000 the nearest replacement in the current US series? I don't really need 3D but I don't want to compromise anything else and the PTAR100U seems like a lesser series.


P.S. I'm on my 2nd lamp and it still should have hundreds of hours left on it.


P.P.S. Update. Same as before. Dismounted, removed and replaced lamp, and it now works again.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there is no concept of "accounting for taste". We don't "pick" the level of bass, etc., any more than we pick the ending of a play. High fidelity means an unmodified, neutral, exact copy (or "reproduction") of the original artist's tonal balance, timing, dynamics, etc..

If you follow the lead of current sellers on eBay...around $950 may be about the best you could do. However finding a buyer at this price could be a challenge. You can test the waters here on AVS Forum in the classified forum for projectors.

For some reason my AE4000 will go into standby mode after around 30mins of use. At that point it is no longer responsive and I have to physically pull the power and plug it back in. Has anyone experienced anything like this? No messages come up on the screen it just flicks to standby while watching anything.
