ALL IS WELL!!! ALL IS WELL!!!
Power was off from 10:30 until 3:00 am. Plugged A/V equipment back in and ran through everything. Thought receiver was down at first since no signal received by TV. Had this happen to the previous Denon receiver, a fried HDMI out. Then I realized I unplugged the cable to the TV to use on the BenQ. All was working. Then I plugged the W1070 backed in and watched nervously. Red light turned orange. I plugged the bluray back in and started the PJ. No problems, even had the settings I changed last night. Shut it all down and waited until the PJ was happily quiet before unplugging. Tonight I will work on seeing how much lens shift is available from my mounting distance so I can finish cutting pipe for the mount extension. Like to have it mounted by Friday movie night with the kids.
Had a splitter running to the W1070 and the 6 year-old Optoma HD65 to compare images. When the old PJ first came on I was looking at something else and forgot it was on. I looked up and the image suddenly looked bad (slightly doubled) and I thought I somehow was in 3D mode. I drove myself crazy for 5 minutes trying to look at settings, menus and remote buttons to get the great image back. Panicked, thought I would be sending it back (my secret fear the last few days). Then I shifted it on the table slightly and the doubling became more pronounced. Yes, dummy here finally realized it was the other PJ imagage. I covered the Optoma lens and happiness filled the room again. I switched back and for in various scenes (light, dark, skin tones) and the difference was incredible. It's funny how you don't notice slight changes over time. Like the glacier in the back yard getting closer.
BTW, how do I check my firmware #?
