fyi- i changed DNR from default 7 to 0 and my lamp brightness went up dramatically!
Never thought of changing that.
The image is noticeably brighter and more enjoyable now.

also, Benq quick shipped my remote to me.. already got it today. outstanding..

Hi,

I have just completed the setup of my new projector BenQ W1070. But i m having issue with the 3d thing. When i go into setup of the projector, i cant select Auto for the 3d. It is always grey. I tried some movies but i cant select Auto and i cant get the 3d view. I also tried it without the AVR. Directly connected the 3D Player to the Projector but still no 3D. Does anybody have an idea about my issue?

My configuration is ;

Projector - BenQ W1070
AVR - Yamaha RXV 775
3D Bluray Player - Pioneer BDP 140
Cable - Mediabridge Ultra 3D
Glasses - Sainsonic 144 Hz 3D

For troubleshooting, eliminate the AVR as you have done. Running straight from BluRay to projector, make SURE You are a using a 3D bluray (duh, right?), go into your bluray settings and make sure that 3D is enabled. Try different HDMI cables. Try turning the bluray off and back on to resolve potential handshaking issues. You shouldn't have to change any settings on the w1070.

Some 3D blurays don't switch to 3D until the movie starts or the main menu starts. Try a different 3D bluray.

Those are my suggestions.

It's hard to love Martin Logans and 2.35:1 CIH at the same time...

Quick question. I'm trying to use the throw calculators from projectorcentral and from BenQ. BenQ sets the default zoom at 1.0, while you can't get lower than 1.15 zoom on projector central.

So what do people have their zooms on, and does zooming affect PQ? My couch is 13' away, so looks like 120" screen what I'll be looking at. Thanks!

Your projector is at a slight angle.

Any projector needs to be angled with its lens perfectly, perfectly perpendicular to the screen - at a dead-on right-angle - otherwise you get the geometry you're seeing. And of course it also needs to be perfectly level (parallel) with the screen as well (probably not a problem in your case).

Same as Kreeturez said.
In your case it looks like your projector needs to be moved a few inches to the right (that's if you're standing behind it, facing the screen) and turned to still face dead-center on the screen of course, and the left leg might need to be raised just a hair.

Simple

Looks good. What's the model of the screen?

This is why when you ceiling mount it is very important to measure plenty of times before you mount your projector. Because right now you with it on a table you can move all over the place.

I spent many nights measuring and marking with tape where my pj would go.
