I've never calibrated straight off the projector I've been using a Duo, but if I'm correct your able to control your projector via Calman 5( without the need of a remote ) , they call it DDC. In doing that with my Duo using a rs232 cable to A USB. You will have to check with spectralcal and if that's the case you will have to invest into a null rs232 to USB.

We had a rough Mother's day weekend last weekend. Our last doggy needed some help going to heaven. He was suffering from Kidney failure and took a bad turn last Saturday morning. So we helped out and took him to the vets to assist us in letting him have a peaceful morning. frown.gif

Sorry to hear about your dog. Being a dog owner ( for the very first time ) its amazing how much we become attached to them and they are part of your family.

Thank you Chuck, there was actually a note from the company that handle our dog after his passing that was quite humorous.

"No Dogs In Heaven"

An old man and his dog were walking down a hot, dusty road lined with a beautiful white fence on both sides. As they walked along, the old man and his dog became very thirsty and tired.

Soon, they came to a gate in the fence where, on the other side, they saw a nice grassy, wooded area surrounding a cool clear pool of fresh water. "Just where a thirsty 'huntin' dog and a man would like to rest!" thought the old man. But there was a sign over the gate that read "No Dogs" so they walked on.

Further on, they came upon a man in flowing white robes standing just inside a strong iron gate across a path that led to a beautiful, sunny meadow with a cool clear stream running through it.

"'Scuse me Sir," said the old man, "My dog and I have been on this road all day. Mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?" "Of course!" The man said. "Come on in and rest. You look thirsty and tired." The old man said, "We sure are!" and started through the gate with his dog.

The gatekeeper stopped him. "Sorry, you can come in but your dog can't come with you. "You see, this is Heaven, and dogs aren't allowed here. He has to stay out here on the road." "What kind of Heaven won't allow dogs?" said the old man. "Well, if he can't come in, then I'll stay out here on the road with him. He's been my faithful companion all his life and I won't desert him now."

"Suit yourself," said the gatekeeper, "but I have to warn you, the Devil's on this road and he'll try to sweet talk you into his place. He'll promise you anything, but dogs can't go there either. If you won't leave that dog on the road, you'll spend all Eternity on the road with him. Better if you stay here."

"Well, I'm stayin' with my dog," replied the man and he and the dog walked on. Gradually, the fence became more and more faded and rundown until they finally reached a spot where the boards fell away completely leaving a gap. Another man dressed in old, ragged clothes sat just inside the broken fence under a shady tree.

"'Scuse me Sir," said the old man, "My dog and I have been on this road all day. Mind if we come in and sit in the shade for awhile?" "Of course!" The man said. "Come on in and rest. There's some cold water here under the tree. Make yourself comfortable."

The old man paused, "but what about my dog? Can he can come in, too? The man up the road said dogs weren't allowed here, and they had to stay on the road." The other man answered, "Well, you look pretty tired and thirsty. Would you come in here and rest if you had to leave that dog?"

"No sir!" the old man replied, "A glass of cold water and some shade would be mighty fine right about now but I won't come in if my buddy here can't come too. I didn't go to Heaven because my dog couldn't come with me, so I sure as how ain't about to go to Hell without him neither."

The man smiled and said, "Welcome to Heaven, and bring your dog!" The old man exclaimed, "You mean this is Heaven? And my dog can come with me? Then why did that fellow down the road say they weren't allowed in Heaven?" The man replied, "That was the Devil and he gets all the souls who are willing to give up a life-long companion for small comfort because they think it will make their lives a little easier."

The man continued, "They soon find out their mistake, but, then it's too late. The dogs come here, the fickle people stay there. God wouldn't allow dogs to be banned from Heaven. After all, He created them to be man's companions in life, why would he separate them in death?"

It sounds as if your dog was indeed part of the family. My condolences for your loss.

Hey Mike thanks for popping in, how have you been btw?
post #1127 of 1228
Not Bad Frank. It's just starting to get really hot where I am. I think we are going into a phase of 90+ degree weather for the next 5-6 days. Plus allergies. Not nice. The server is still awesome BTW. I have about 30 more BR disks to put on then I am done those. Then I will start on the regular DVD's. Having stuff at your finger tips is really cool. How is your system? I know it sounds great smile.gif. Any new plans in the works?

I get affected by allergies and its not nice. Were heading into Winter over here but its not as cold as you guys get it. Enjoy the heat and sun, im kindal glad it over but then again ask me that question again in a few more weeks and I bet I cant wait for Summer again. Its good to see the server doing well, I was contenplating it but at the moment I just have to pass. I agree just sit back and choosing the a movie via the picture icons is awesome.

System is fine, Im at a stage Im just sitting back and enjoying movies. I dont what know to upgrade too as yet? Im waiting to see whats on the horizon but for know Im just sitting back.
post #1129 of 1228
I was at a point of just sitting back, but wishing I could do a server thing, and then this sort of fell into place. I really like the 1027's and I really can't seem myself changing unless something drastic happens. I do a have a few tweaks though. Nothing major. The only major thing I would think about are new, cooler running amps if I could fine some that fit my rack. It's not a major priority because I have two fans that I use to try and keep the room cool but it still does get a bit warm in the summer time and I am sure the amps I have contribute to that. But for now, unless something breaks, no major changes for me either.

Like you Mike Im very happy Like with the 1027's and for theatre and music they serve there purpose well. I was looking at 1038be's at one stage but when the guy asked me what I have and do I listen to more music or home theatre I told him Im 99% HT and he told me not to bother with the 1038be. If it was solely 2 channel music then yes but don't waste your money. I was even looking at Australian company that makes speakers, great for ht called Krix. They have


Front speakers called Neuphonix

and a centre



called epicentrix

They have been around for quite a number of years and a friend of mine had them and they sounded great for theatre.



For my amp I use cool components with a thermostat control works really great. Once it hits a certain temperature they kick in.
post #1131 of 1228
I have heard of them, but I have never listened to them. You are lucky because your amps and gear are in another room right? Mine are right in my room. I also heard the 1028's and thought they were really good. I have listened to a number of speakers, in a number of environments, and very few make me wish I had something different. A few may have, but all of them would be way more money then I what I paid for my 1027's. Now I just want to try and get the most out of them anyway I can.

For me its itchy feet, every now and then i get the idea of trying something new but then I watch a movie in the HT and realise why do I want to change this.

If anything the next thing will be a Video Processor that is able to handle 4K input.

If I were you, I'd do this any time I got an urge to buy something else, especially stuff that looks/sounds really good on your setup. If that doesn't work after a cople of days, maybe investigate the potential acquisition then, not before. smile.gif

Well its happened again I was watching Avengers and the Center Speaker crackled. I paused it did a CH level check and went through all the channels when I got to sub 1 it crackled on the center speaker as well. The center has know dropped its db. This time im saving my config and doing a factory reset. Hopefully it works if not I dont what Im going to do. To be honest our technicians over here are not the best, once something goes wrong another problem tends to follow.

Look like I might be up for a new pre amp. I might go for the Integra 80.3. Dont care for Marantz due to I will never use 11.2
post #1136 of 1228
G'day, mate.

Hold your horses, amigo. An Integra? Really? Don't be too eager to throw your AVP under the bus just yet.

Oh no! I'm definitely sorry to hear about this. Do you have an old pre/pro or receiver you can test, to make sure it's not the center channel on the amp that's failing?

Sorry to hear that ! as I know all to well how it feels to have to change out a piece of critical gear, and if repairs aren't an option, its an Marantz 8801 beyond a shadow of a doubt, I as well have no plans for 11.2 and think it really loves movies and it has only increased my love for music and movies by enhancing them beyond my expectations! It at least deserves an audition wink.gif
