Hi!

I've been running a Sony 1030/1031 for a bunch of years, and did a budget upgrade to an ECP 3500 a couple of months ago. The primary reasons why I wanted to upgrade was a bit more brightness...

Hi, guys!

I'm the happy owner of a Sony VPH 1030 (the late series, capable of the same scan freq. as the 1031). My PJ however is showing more and more signs of age, and I'm thinking that of...

Oh, I thought 15 meters would be ok. I think I've read about people using that in other places.

Before this one I used a factory made "real" VGA-cable, ca 6 meters long, I would guess (for...

Hi! I'm a happy owner of a Sony 1030. It's a later model that scans to 32 Khz, plus I have glass lenses mounted, so it's effectively a 1031.

Currently I'm running 960x540 and feed it via a HTPC...

Hello!

I'm a happy owner of a 32khz-capable Sony 1030 with HD6-lenses. Since its 32khz-capable it should be able to do all resolutions that a 1031 can do.
