Hi guys... new to this thread. I've searched but haven't found anything about "speed ramping". I see PD has a time setting and that you can vary the speed of your clip by cutting it into sections and...

Really! Boy... I'd be interested in that! I'm trying to figure out how to make my dispersion panels in the easiest way. Curvy? Post-y? 4x4's? They're all so tedious to build and expensive to buy.

I'm not sure where you got that. I don't think I've seen that whole-wall coverage recommendation, ever. That would make for a very dead room. And you'd have no dispersion at all.

For example, one...

That's a good test.



Good to know. I'm thinking of getting a new receiver with comparable DAC's or better to solve my lip syncing issues. I need an audio delay and the Poi doesn't do that.

HDMI is digital, so that bypasses the DAC's. But any analog out, including 2 channel and 7.1 channel uses them. I'm not sure about the subwoofer channel, though. Would it even make a difference?

Wonder if someone will ever measure the CR and tell us... All these reviews and no one measures CR? I wonder if Sony told them not to.

Yes, there are. But the SMX is definitely in the running. It's no slouch.

The only audio measurements I have are my own. It was very good to 18kHz and then down 3db @ 20. I'll see if I can find...

Yes, you are right. But as projectors get brighter and more and more sport lens memory, people are opting to retain pixel-for-pixel projection. I'm not saying anamorphic lenses are gone, by any...

Just from my perspective:

The original cost doesn't matter.
I would never buy a curved screen.
And, most importantly it's orphaned.

So... for me... I wouldn't expect to get much. Sorry if I...

And movies! Don't forget those movies... it has those DAC's on all 7 output channels.

But I agree. Even if you want the audio chops of the Pioneer, it's not worth repairing. Just get a nice, new...
