I do this too; my feeling is that mixing different crossover settings (especially across the LCR) could cause issues with phase changes not being consistent across the front. It's irrelevant for me...

Just FYI, I use Chromapure and my own (i1D3) meter to recalibrate my Lumagen Radiance 2041, so it is definitely possible to DIY calibrate with a Lumagen (autocal too since I have that option in...

No, you're assuming that the gamma drift is linear, but it isn't. Instead of it being a flat line.it becomes like a ski slope with the left side (dark end of greyscale) being high, but the higher end...

Yes, the gamma drift has happened to mine, down below 2.0 above 30%. I use 2.3 in the menu, so the <30% rise towards 2.3.

I use an external Lumagen 2041 video processor to do my calibration so...

Thanks for confirming that. I'll just make sure that the setting is off whenever I run a calibration and when I watch the projector.

Just a side point though; since I adjust the white balance for...

It would be neat...

Josh covered it pretty much there. I did used to have a lens (a decent, but not top end Isco II) but now I've reverted to zooming with a faux-4K JVC X500. However, I have a Lumagen video processor,...

It's no different from you manually zooming back and forth to fill the height of a 2.40:1 screen (with appropriate side bars for other aspect ratios). The JVC can just 'remember' the zoom/shift/focus...

Perhaps I should also add that it was a long throw set up (I later added an A-lens) so for 16:9 content/using the A-lens for 2.40:1 I was pretty much at minimum zoom.
