This is in response to an earlier series of messages about getting authorized for the NYC locals in Annandale. I was denied for the NBC channel. They gave me the Fox 88 channel however.

No regrets here, after switching from a Marantz S3 DLP projector. Maybe I'll have a few when I have to change the bulb...

Sorry, didn't mean to be so sensitive. I guess watching the VPLW100 over the last few days has made me a little bit emotional :)

Joe,

Why the sarcasm? I have a light-controlled room, and the Ruby is already the brightest of the three projectors I have used on this screen very happily for many, many years. I don't need any...

I think the quality of the Skins game yesterday was very sub-par. I was watching Fox channel 88 from Ny on DirecTV though, so maybe that was part of it. A good part of the second half seemed to be...

Hi Spizz,

Again, I've only watched two DVD's so far (had to watch the Giants game last night) and both were well-mastered. I'm using a Denon 5900 at 1080I and I didn't see any scaling problems at...

The black levels on my unit are just a hair higher than on my old Barco CRT project, and much better than the Marants S3. I also like the LACK of MPEG/crawlie artifacts in the very darkest portions...

I'm using the same Stewart Studiotek 130 screen I used with my Barco CRT projector, a Marantz S3 DLP projector, and now the VPLW100. It's plenty bright enough for me on a 110" screen in a darkened...

I just upgraded from a Marantz S3. I've only watched two full movies on DVD and sampled some off-air and DirecTV Hi-def, but it's definitely a keeper for me. This is the closest I've since I had my...

I connect mine via DVI at 720P, but as far as I know the Faroudja scaler in the 5900 and the Farounda scaler in the S3 are identical.

I've completely unplugged and retired both of my HTPC's at this point. They were nice when I used a Barco BG808s CRT projector because I could really optimize the timings and tweak everything for...

I signed up for the Cox DVR that is supposed to be available early next month. Does anyone know what unit they're using? Does it have DVI output, or just component?

Hi Mick,

I have the S3 in one room and the 7200 in another room. There's no question the S3 is better in every way except sheer brightness, but the 7200 is fine too. Hopefully the 7205 won't have...

This must be a trend, only I'm not from England. I replaced a Barco BG808s (which I enjoyed for four years) with a Marantz S3. In almost every respect I prefer the S3. The CRT has a touch better...

Yeah, I know this is late. I'm very happy with the S3 on the Stewart Studiotek 130. The black levels are perfectly fine, and I don't want any more screen gain. I was prepared to switch out the...

I received a 5900 fresh from Japan, with DVI already enabled, and it still does not leave the DVI output selected. I'm running it into a Marantz S3 projector. What an annoying bug.

I guess you either appreciate contrast or you don't. I have both an Infocus 7200 and a Marantz S3. I would not use the IF on my Studiotek 130 screen. The black levels just don't cut it. It's fine...
