I'm using the built in DVD so no connections at all. The Wii is connected via the component connection adapter. I'd be really interested in getting more than 80", though I kind of feel spoiled as it is, and a bit guilty for wanting 92"-100". Unfortunately the one thing I did not get from the previous owner was the manual. I can't find it online anywhere. I can't figure out how to change the image size without physically moving the unit forward or backward.
I don't know what "FFDShow Unsharpen mask filter" is, though I assume you are running a computer with some type of DVD player plug in. I use Macs so.......
I'm certainly willing to do more light control as the only thing I've done up until now is place the screen over the largest window, blocking 95% of it.
Honestly I'm stunned at the size and detail coming off of a regular resolution DVD. HD must be astounding.
"With that said I've never heard anyone say dvds looked too soft past 80"
I find this hard to accept. Either this isn't quite accurate or my unit has an issue with focus.
We've mostly watched computer generated kids movies like the Pixar stuff. This content really shines. Live action doesn't have quite the sharpness and detail, but it is still better than I thought possible with the DVD format.
