If you purchased yours from AV Science, just give me a call and I will handle everything for you.

[quote=hifiaudio2;21778806]Ok I will research... in any case, on my current "too bright" 133" HP screen the light loss was not noticeable but the motion improved tremendously... I really liked it. I would suggest anyone interested in Motionflow but cant stand the SOE to check it out. I had basically skipped over the setting for a long while before looking into it.

We will see if I can live with whatever the light loss is once I move to the EN4k screen.[/QUOTE]


Have you tested the 1000 with other screen materiale then the EN4K ? ( say etc. CP 2 ) and how bright was the EN4K with it and what size did you project when tested it ?

I have not tested with other materials. I will sit too close I believe for the other AT screens.

I blew up the screen to where it would be a 160" width and then measured my EN4k sample in the center and got 15 ftl at short throw, as I recall. That was on reference, rec 709, d65, etc. I did not calibrate it but I did measure it with Calman and if anything the calibration might increase brightness as it seemed to need red added. But it measured very close from 20-80. 90IRE is where red was off.

How close are you going to be to the screen ? ( 1 x screen wide ? more or less ? )

I've had the 1000 for about two weeks and love it. Got mine through Mike G. (AVS) and he's a pleasure to deal with as are all the AVS team. I'm using Lumagen Radiance XE and ADA Mach IV and the video is significantly better than my Pioneer Elite FPJ-1. I'm using zoom for 2.35 rather than AL I was using with Pioneer.

I love the zoom, but not the fact that I have to use so many button presses to get screen masking, aspect ratio and zooming correct. I'm using RTI control and can macro masking but I have not found any Sony command files to change aspect ration and select zoom discreetly. Do those command exist for the Sony?

Thanks
Chris

There must be a list of discrete rs232 or IP commands somewhere. I'm sure the zoom shortcuts are discrete. They better be anyway..

Right around 1x for 2:35 or slightly less I believe. My room is being re-designed now so I dont have the final schematics yet or know exactly how far back seating will be.

All I needed was the Picture Position Button programmed into my universal. The aspect should be saved in each of your positions saves. Blanking is universal and in my eyes because of that not all that useful, but the aspects will be specific to the picture position save. I just use 2 positions (1.78, 2.35), so it's as easy as hitting the position button twice and that will toggle to the other position.

I had a couple NCAA friends over this evening and they were amazed at the amount of detail they were seeing in the studio breakouts during and between games. They said it made them feel as if they were part of a studio audience. I have to agree. The amount of realism the 1000 brings to the table is jaw dropping. I am currently Reviewing Sony's latest Flagship AVR the 5700ES and have to admit they are a pretty good team. I've never had a Sony Receiver before so this is unchartered waters for me. More on that elsewhere but I will say our eyes and ears have both been fed a ton of candy!!!

I'm looking for a new solution for my audio processing. I am now using a Anthem D2, a D2V may be my best upgrade choice once the new HDMI 1.4 video board becomes available.

Just wondering what everyone else is using with the Sony. It seems to me that the picture is somewhat degraded when the video goes through the D2. This leaves me to think that the best solution would be a processor that would bypass the video or pass the video untouched. Then if we get a 4K source at some point how will this pass through the processor?

The Classe looks pretty good but does it pass the video untouched? Also I don't believe it has any room correction. It seems like the ADA Mach 4 may be the only solution but when you add the TEQ Trinnov for room correction it gets very expensive. I'm also a bit intimidated by the ADA setup as it seems like there is very little online help available like the D2V thread in this forum. My best bet may be just to limp along with my D2 until something supporting 4K video is available.

Randall what source are you using? Something like an Oppo can send video straight to the pj and audio separately to the preamp. If its other sources that HAVE to go through the preamp, then the Integra 80.2 and 80.3 are both great and can pass video untouched.

Depending on which games. Yes. The 5700ES passes the signal straight thru untouched so the 1000 can do all the work.

Do you get onscreen menus from your receiver?

The Integra looks interesting and also the McIntosh MX121.

With the Integra, if you want it to truly leave the video alone and set it that way, you will NOT get volume control, etc menus onscreen. If you hit the setup buttom those menus DO still come onscreen though.

Joerod, it is too bad you don't live in New Hampshire, I would be over every opportunity I could As an alternative you are welcome to make a special trip to New England to hold a special viewing/demo at my house. I am sure my ceiling mount could handle that bad boy

Heard from a reliable source that Sony is increasing dealer cost on the ES line by 5% (VW1000 included) on March 31. Could have an effect on street price. In case anyone is still pondering one of these bad boys.

Is there a website to register the product for warranty purposes?

I am.

Which leads me to something else....is there an auto setting for switching pre-sets? I noticed as I'm going through the menu of my new AV processor that the projector keeps changing from reference to cinema 1...anyone have an idea what's going on? I use reference for everything....
