I put my name on Gregg Loewen's Southeast tour (from over at the HTF) to come by and calibrate my 711XU, and he came by yesterday morning. After reading many postings on Gregg specifcally and knowlegable ISF techs in general, I was eager to see how much better my picture would get.
He showed up and seemed extremely knowlegable and professional. Answered any questions I had and worked for over an hour on the projector.
Unfortunately, he was unable to do any improvements on it. As is well documented in past posts, the white balance can not be adjusted on this projector when it is being fed a YPbPr source. Though he said my grey scale was significantly off, there wasn't anything he could do. And I certainly wasn't willing to get back into the HTPC headache just to have it calibrated.
So, if any of you were thinking about having yours calibrated, that is my experience with it. If you have had any other experiences, I would love to hear it, but as for now, I know my picture is as good is it can get with this equipment :-)
