Couple of weird issues with my 4000 I've just encountered...
First, I wanted to save two settings for movie ratios, 1.85:1 and 2.35:1. I put on a movie with a 1.85:1 picture, centered it manually via the knobs on top while zooming and focusing, ok great, save! Now onto 2.35. I popped in a film with that ratio and used the digital v-area shift to move the picture up 25 or so clicks, great, now zoom and re-focus, ok save! The weird thing is that when going back and forth between ratios, it's never spot on with either the zoom setting or focus. I went back to the 2.35 film and zoomed right to the edge of my screen, saved and when it finished "calibrating" that save, it was one zoom click too small, weird or what? I did that two or three more times and all but one time, it saved them wrong (scratches head).
Today, I noticed something else. I went to put a movie in, 1.85 ratio, and even before I popped in the film, I noticed that my blu-ray player home screem was spilling off the top and bottom pf the screen about an inch each way... I was like, wft! I just centered that! But, the movie was spot on, just the home screen and everything leading up to the movie was operspilled, even the movie previews I think. What's up with that?
Also, and not really an issue, but more of my ignorance on setting this baby up, but is it a problem if my PJ isn't perfectly level? I ask because in one of the write-ups on setting it up says to make sure that your screen and PJ are level. I don't think it's an issue, just not sure but mine is a bit off level in order for me to align the picture with the screen.
Second to last thing, I can't seem to get the picture perfectly square either, one corner always seems smaller. I can move the PJ like a turntable and I can see the effect but when I get the bottom even all the way across (verifying with a tape measure) the top is off 1/8" - 3/16", it's kind of bothering me.
Last thing, speaking of spill over, why do two movies with the same 1.85:1 ratio fill my screen differently? I'm guessing it's because they're not perfectly mastered but it's a stinker to know that you might have to re-adjust your picture for every movie if you're that anal.
What are your thouhgts on my overloaded post?
