I've looked at several online examples and was very relieved NOT to see anything like them on my W1070.

But what I DO notice is a kind of metallic silvery edge to certain things like a car driving fast or a flashlight at night.

It's like a silvery light is quickly shined on something and then it's gone.

It's not too bad but I notice it.

Is that RBE?

usually RBE is a flash of red green and bluish kinda streak as you shift your eyes......at least that's how it looks to me.

Thanks for responding.

That's not what I'm seeing. And moving my eyes around the screen doesn't seem to increase the effect.

Sounds almost like hotspotting.

Yeah, sounds like a bad screen in use. What make/model/material of screen are you using? I've noticed this on some screens I've seen in the past but I can't remember a specific brand. I think it was the cheap Screen Innovations model, but I don't want to say for sure on that. Maybe it was an Elite screen. Gotta have a decent screen with any projection setup.

My screen is a mounted piece of drywall painted with a gray recipe from the DIY forum here (painted it so long ago I can't remember which one).

If it was hotspotting, wouldn't it appear in a fixed pattern, in a fixed location? I saw an in-store demo recently with one of those old 1950's era pulldown screens, and that had a big sparkly blob right in the middle, which I took to be a reflection of the lens caused by hotspotting ... this doesn't look anything like that. It isn't constant and it isn't in the same place every time ...

I am going to build a new spandex screen though, so I'll see if that improves the situation at all ...

Thank you all for responding!

If you do not see RBE, please do not research any further. This is one of few areas that ignorance is a blessing. Once you know how to see it, you will always see it for the rest of your life, in every film, from every single chip DLP. You will have a natural instinct to look for certain scenes to catch it. So, don't research it and just enjoy the movie...

Thanks for the advice. I feel like a character in a 70s era horror film,wandering through a spooky old house, and I'm reaching for a doorknob, and everyone in the audience is thinking: "Don't open the door! Don't open the door!"

I’m starting to get a silvery edge to everything when I look in the mirror, but I don’t think it’s RBE. AGE maybe? Even those hairs growing out of where they shouldn’t be are silver. I also see dead people, but that’s another thread in another forum. wink.gif
