I'm curious how many 500/600ES owners have had their projectors professionally calibrated. I always told myself that when I got a really good setup, I would spend for a pro calibration. And yet, I...

Screen Menu > Picture Position > Save

I'm seeing a symptom I'm pretty sure wasn't there originally.



Pause a Blu-ray disc.
Play.
Disk starts to play, then stalls for 1-2 seconds, then finally resumes.


Is it just me?

Everybody says the 8802 sounds better. But rumor has it that the following year's AVPs will have new & improved Audyssey. I guess I'll wait for the 8803?

I can't quite parse what dt744190 wrote. But I don't see any such change. You can still put commands for any device on the Activity screen, as long as the device is involved in the activity.

I want to know when they'll get back to the Bran & Hodor gang. Some interesting stuff going on there. I hope they don't wait for the season finale again.
