Hey all. I just installed an Epson 8350 and noticed something strange with the image. Whenever the camera pans from left to right, or right to left, the image warps in a way that looks like the camera is using a fish eye lens or something. When the image is still, it looks fine, but when there is left to right or right to left movement, it looks funky. Is this a calibration thing, or a bad projector thing?

Thanks

Sounds like you have the aspect ratio set to wide where the center of a 4:3 the image is left alone and the outer portions are stretched. Set it to Normal so the image is displayed with the aspect ratio it was recorded in.. 4:3 will have black bars on the left and right 16:9 will fill the screen

Thanks airscapes. I will try that and will check out a couple of different movies making sure to check both 'widescreen' and other formats.

If your screen is not perfectly flat you can encounter this effect. That is to say, if there are any waves or curls it will look fine in a stationary image but warped during motion.

Hey all. I changed the aspect ratio setting to match the DVD format and that fixed it. Looks good now. Thanks for all the help.
