It will eventually stay at what I select, such as User 1, but in the begining, of the movie when it shows the oppo logo, or the FBI warning, the loading screen, and every movie preview befor ethe feature film starts, it is constantly switching from USER 1, back to the pixel-pixel mode. Before calibration (done using pixel-pixel setting), I would set at at USER 1 (or normal, or whatever) and it would stay that way from the beginning. Now I am constantly having to switch from pixel to pixel mode several times until the feature film starts. Every time the projector resynchs with every new movie preview or for a menu, or for whatver, it reverts to pixel-pixel... This can't continue... Not sure why this happens...
Hello Health Nut,
My guess is that the reason this is happening is that when it was calibrated the settings were stored in one of the six memory presets. Everytime the projector sees a particular signal type such as 1080p it will load the settings in that particular memory bank.
You can check this by pressing the info button on the remote control after the projector has 'chosen' pixel to pixel and look to see what memory bank has been loaded - it is above the lamp hour timer. If it says anything other than 'Auto' it means that the callibrator stored his settings into memory - which is the correct thing to do.
If you want to change this so that a different aspect ratio is loaded, but all other settings remain the same then you need to 'save' a different memory bank. Simply allow the projector to load the settings as normal then select your chosen aspect ratio, next press the memory manager button on the remote, this is located below the word 'menu' and has a square symbol on it.
This will bring up the memory OSD and if I'm right the memory in use will have a yellow border around it and the little tray graphic will be full. Using the arrow up/down/left/right keys on the remote select a free memory.
Press the left arrow and a new box will appear and choose 'Save Current Settings' by pressing the right arrow - the empty tray graphic should now be full. Now press the arrow right button and the osd will confirm your chosen memory has been recalled. This now means that every time the PJ sees that signal type and input it will now use that memory. To revert to the previous memory simply display the memory manager again and choose another one and press the right arrow button to load it.
If you want to stop using the memories and save your settings 'on the fly' choose the 'auto' memory then the projector will always select whatever you set in the Picture & Image menu's.
Be warned, that if you change anything or attempt to save any memory it is immediate.
Hope this helps.
