I had an LCD projector before my Sharp DLP. Just got the Epson 8700. It does have some minor convergence issues, and I'm going to look closer tonight. The 3 LCD panels are the major problem with...

I commented on a thread about this movie a couple of weeks ago. That thread mysteriously disappeared.

One more reason why this site is starting to be weak and worthless.

I downloaded the 1.12 upgrade and burned a CD, but my 1910 will not upgrade with it (I've got v1.08 on my 1910 --one of the first to purchase it for my HLP6163). On my system Nero only allows 8x...

Only by having DNIe on can you adjust the MCC color controls. I have done that to reduce the "low black=green" problem discussed elsewhere.

I was a little disappointed in the black level of my HLP6163, since I also have a SharpVision 12K PJ. The Sharp has excellent black levels. I wonder if internal reflections in the RPTV cabinet are...
