Hi Tony,

I wasn't aware that you could use a g11 lamp in a g10. At least I've never worked on one of these.

To answer your question, yes, the G90 really does resolve 1080p. I threw up the Infocomm shootout disk that I used to look at sometimes to check out D-ILAs. There is one pattern that is a...
