What seems uniform to the human eye may not necessarily be uniform data. The more resolution the data has, the harder it is to conclude if it's uniform or not. It's possible that the DI logic will not show the same problems on the Blu-ray version
Yup, I understand all of that just fine, and it is with that in mind that I feel the extra data in the Blu-ray version would just serve to confuse the DI, while the "watered down" version on the DVD would be much easier to deal with. But we shall see next week when I get the DVD version from Netflix.
Well, I did spend close to $10k on an Schneider Anamorphic lens setup, so downgrading to the Panasonic 4000 sure makes sense
Ok, gotcha....I have an ISCO III anamorphic lens as well, so I understand why you would want a comparable projector. What I don't understand is why you are still watching DVDs, regardless of how much money you spent on the collection...
The better my playback equipment, the better my sources need to be to appreciate the quality of my system. I am sorry that I (and you) spent countless dollars buying DVDs just to shelve them in favor of Blu-ray, but since I want to experience my home theater at its best, I prefer to watch the finest source material I can get my hands on...call me crazy!
I probably should upgrade to a Digital Projection Titan HD-250, but after spending $12k on a JVC G15 ten years ago, I did not want to spend that much on a unit that I probably will want to replace within the next 5 years anyway (LED technology sure looks promising)
Yup, a reasonably priced next gen LED machine might find its way into my HT if the performance is there, but the 8150 is good enough to last me until my next upgrade.
And I am not familiar with the performance of the Titan HD-250....what does it bring to the table that is missing from the 8150? It is 720p...4000:1 CR....but with lots of lumens. What makes it so special to you?
