That's excellent. Sorry to bring a thread back from 2 months (I'm sure there's been worse) but I am wondering how the heck you got the thing apart. If you have any tips for getting the top cover off, please let me know.
I guess this could be counted as a comparison post.
The color wheel in my Optoma H77 finally went after about 5000 hours over 5ish years. Paid $2800 new back then. It is a single chip DLP with a 5x, 8 segment color wheel.
The projector is shelf mounted, 19.5' from the top edge of a DaLite Model C 119" Hi Power (2.8 gain). The room is 14x22 with a bay window on the wall opposite the projection surface.
The 8350 has been great right out of the box. Picked up from Best...
Client ordered the Aton 6 room speaker selector. Will use the powered zone B out on his 7.1 receiver. I will have to gang up two single room speakers but should work perfectly. Thanks for the input gents!
I am configuring two RF remote controls that tie back to an IR blaster that is located in the closet where the distribution amp would be installed.
Thanks very much for taking the time to give me input on this.
Budget wise we are looking to stay under $1000.
I am installing a 4 zone video distribution system and the customer would also like to do whole home audio. What is currently run to the AV closet is 4 pair of 2 conductor cable for the ground floor, and 3 pair for the upstairs.
What I am trying to find is a 1 source 8 zone (or 1 source 4 zone) amplifier where zone selection and volume for each zone is done via IR remote to the distribution amp. I would then program the URC (using an MX-3000 and MX-810) to control the...
I am using the stock vidcard hooked up to a monoprice 4x1 amplified switch. I have not changed the vidcard and have only updated the drivers to the current version on Sony's support site. Not sure if this helps, but if the amplified switch is the cure, a 2 in 1 out ampd switch could be a very inexpensive solution...
Connected from switch output to HDCP DVI input on an Optoma H77 projector via a Monoprice FemHDMI to MDVI adaptor (also cheap).
Picked one up from Costco by me. Not sure if you even get the "7HDDVDs", assumed I wouldnt get it on account of the warehouse store model number.
As for the load times, its much quicker than the bulb warmup time on my Optoma H77 (about 40 seconds on the bulb, so not sure on the DVD exactly). Seemed nearly as fast as my Oppo DVI.
renethx makes several good points.
I do NLE as a passionate hobby, but I am a pc tech by trade.
First thing is raid. Theres nothing wrong with using raid, it can simply be intimidating to some. It is easier to design a system with a non raided OS disk, but realize that the requirements for a video editing system are different than an HTPC.
Your choice of HDD sizes is good from a cost/benefit approach.
The most costly in terms of lost space is a raid 01 or 10 approach...
All in 64 and 32 bit versions, the only versions with the Media Center interface are Home Adv and Ultimate.
Tablet edition is a component of bus/ent/ult for you carputer folks.
These are shipped individually for OEM copies. It is my understanding the retail boxes will include both 32 and 64bit discs, with 1 license.
The problem is primarily with the equipment manufacturers re: drivers. Why would...
