acksnay, Do you happen to have a learning remote? If so, try to teach it one of the menu buttons, then move the IF remote to another room and see if you can reproduce the effect with the learning remote.
Or check the history of the land your house is built on...

Question for krasmuzik -
>The specified lumens of 750 and contrast of 2200:1 are at D65 optimized home theater mode, the X1 in this mode was about 400 lumens and 800:1 contrast.
Isn't this comparing a spec'ed output vs a calibrated output?
The reason I ask is because my issue with my X1 is that its not bright enough. Looking to upgrade to the 4805 (maybe) - how much brighter is it compared to the X1? Any kind of measured output from the 4805?
Also i'm not understanding why a high powered screen would affect how vivid the colors are, I thought a high powered screen would bring out the colors?

Try clicking on "login" rather than on "register". You should then see an "upload photos" button (to the right of "home", "search", and "profile").

Sorry ... I assumed they could be viewed by others.
What's a good free photo sharing service?

Someone else who isn't fixated on a resolution spec. :) Agreed. Can't imagine trading that for some extra detail.
I've noticed this also...thought it was my somewhat-warped temporary "screen". Will investigate further.
You're in a minority here, the whole point is to post screenshots.

There you go. The problems have started to pop up. I am not surprised if 4805 has problems. X1 had problems like brightness nonuniformity, lot of light spill and some have also reported about focus issue.
Even 7200 had that geometry problem. I am not surprised if these sub 2k projectors have problems.
I just wonder why a company cant make just a few prototypes, test them out and if they dont see any issues then mass produce. I dont think it would cost a lot of money to just assemble say 5 of them, play them for many hours to find any obvious flaws. They dont have to start a plant, hire several 1000 employyes overseas to make a few prototypes. Might be easier said than done. It might be worth trying.

I think acksnay's figured out how to take screen shots :) those are looking much better, thanks man. X2-2_2_ looks real nice for a PJ under 2k
