I did not know that projectors may need to be re-calibrated or tweaked every now and then. If that's right, then this package will make a lot easier for you. I hope it's not too hard to learn.

Until projectors are lamp free recalibration is a repeat business frown.gif

With the auto calibrate feature it should be quite easy.

Thanks wabo im quite excited. You just press auto calibrate and the way it goes. Im sure you can tweak it more once your finished but that will be a learning experince for me later down the track.

Now awaiting for its arrival. Talking about arrival finally recieved The life of Pi,Wreck it Ralph, Rise of the guardians and Schindlers List. Im looking forward in watching Schindlers list as Ive never seen it before.

Unfortunately with projectors I've been told with the globe the more its uses the more calibrations are needed to stay on top of things.

Every 100 hours? That seems quite a bit. Projectors are that finicky?

Well ive read a few members do it, I assumed that was the case. Well it will be intresting to see the changes every 100 hours I will be curious to see the results.

Calibration will be easier with your new software, so perhaps it's not too bad to run preventive maintenance regularly, especially if you use the projector a lot.

As for the 100-hour calibrations, maybe it's just preventive maintenance, important if you use the projector a lot or have frequent company for movie/concert nights.

I watch a movie once a night ill be interested though to see if there is much change in settings. Being that it is auto calibrations should only take 10 minutes smile.gif

Just finished watching Life Of Pi, it is an amazing film I loved it. Pq is very impressive up there with the best of them. The 3D enthusiasts will be pleased with this movie I have been told and read.

Hey awesome looking room mate, I will read the entire thread when I get a chance, just read the first and last page for now, very cool.

You are in Australia aren't you? I am too but my orders from Amazon always take a week or 2 at least longer than yours seem to. I'm still waiting on Life Of Pi and Wreck It Ralph. I've noticed in other threads too that you are always ahead of me in receiving titles. Do you use Amazon US or UK, standard or express post?

Thanks, glad you are enjoying your room! smile.gif

Well for me its definite worth a blind buy. Let us know what you think wabo once you've watched it. Btw have you got the HOBBIT yet? Mine is on its way. Lot of mixed reviews on it, I'm still looking forward in watching but not going in with high expectations.

I haven't even gotten around to ordering The Hobbit yet. I will eventually. I did order the Steelbook version of Life of Pi though. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Life of Pi was a visual stunner! From the opening scene I was gripped--so much detail in each shot! And the CG work on the tiger was absolutely astounding.

Hi Al
How have you been mate its been awhile. Hopefully I should receive the meter on Monday so I can get things started. I guess it's going to take awhile to get used to it but I'm hoping it will be simple. I will definitely let you know how it goes.

Hi Al

I've finally completed the Autocal on the DVDO DUO using chromapure and have to say I'm very impressed. The Pq really stand out, the colours pop out nicely and the blacks are superb. I sent the report to chromapure support to make sure its all good ( still trying to get a good a proper understanding of it ) but awaiting there reply. From what I understand and have some knowledge ( remember watching calibrators do there job ) I ve reached the target where it needs to be especially in the colour bit.

It took around 20 minutes I had dinner and let it preform its work and It really works well. Wether it need additional tweaking, who knows but it looks awesome so I'm just going to leave it.

It's quite easy but there were some things I had to find on my own as it wasn't self explanatory but I got it at the end. If you do decide to go down that pass let me know as I will be happy to assist.

I decided to buy spectral cal CALMAN 5 today. I'm looking forward in comparing Chromapure and Calman 5.
post #1079 of 1228
Bro, let me know which you prefer....I still haven't ordered my software package. Very few folks have the ability to compare both! I'm really looking forward to hearing your determination of "the winner," given the similarities of our projectors and our identical screen material.
