Optoma is no help with hd66 info!
I am very disappointed at the lousy tech support at Optoma these days. It wasn't like that five years ago when I had a Movietime (actually bought five of them!).
My problem is the HD66. I was trying to calibrate it since I am soon to have the 3D-XL added to it. No matter what I do I can't get a rich picture. It looks rather weak, no punch. The manual says to put it on video and then you get saturation control and tint control. Well, no good because they don't tell you that only works with the composite output. Who would use that with blu ray??!!
I followed settings suggested here on the forum and they give a nice color balance and take away the harsh whites I had driving some controls at max. (What happened to white peaking control that the older projectors had? That helped eliminate that type of noise). But the pic still looks rather weak--like more contrast is needed. It is plenty bright, sharp, etc.
BTW, the Projector Central review said the calibration out of the box is pretty bad (agreed), but they also said they raised the saturation considerably. I can't believe they were using anything other than HDMI!
Thanks for any help you can provide!!
