At this stage can you turn the pj 'off' without unplugging it?

When the warning lights come on, what happens if you turn the pj off, wait for the cool down period, and then turn it back on. By any chance does the pic then come up?

Mike, Do you think JVC's autocal with the Spy5 will give a better result than using ChromaPure 'manually' (i.e., the old fashioned way, without a Radiance for doing CP's autocal)?

Well, you've got something to look forward to when you're further along! (I just turned 75.) Only a few yrs ago did I go as large as my room can take, a 6ft H x 12ft W screen (6ft H for 16x9...

I'm in complete agreement with you; I sit ~ 11 ft from a 6 ft H 16x9 screen. It is this immersive experience that is the most important aspect of HT, at least for me.

Envious, Mike! The front wall of my room has only 12.5 ft available, I've taken it all up with a 12ft wide screen. Your ceiling must be pretty high if you go that wide.

I agree that 1.6 SH is a bit too close for my taste; I have settled on ~ 2.0 SH (1.8 for 16x9, and 2.2 for 2.35 pics--i.e., ~ 11 ft from a 6ft H 16x9 pic and 5ft H pic for 2.35).

As I said, I've iterated quite a bit before settling on my preferred location, which is with my eyes ~ 10.5 ft from 128"wide 16x9 pics and 144" wide 2.35 pics. (This a 72" high pic for 16x9 and...

Samsung was out with one of the first BD players some yrs ago, the Sammy 1000 IIRC, and I got one. Gave excellent PQ when it worked, but had many glitches.

Go with the largest screen you can fit in or afford. I enjoy DTV on a 12 ft wide screen (from a projector, JVC RS600).
