Just about everyone who has been married awhile wishes their wife did something or other every once in a while.

But I married a woman of my own faith and I knew going in that once she got married that her pre marital behaviors would drastically change for the worse, at least from my perspective. Now I am old and it really would make no difference anymore but getting the 1000ES at her urging helps (a little).

Hmm.. ok thanks. I will mess with mine some more... since its certainly not spot on. I am having some issues with my brand new screen I need to resolve before I can do a lot of testing.

Did any of you have to set it more than once or tweak it or did it work perfectly the first time you recalled the memory?

When first setting the lens memory, and switching back and forth between them, I found that things were not always 'spot on', so touched up the settings (and 're-saved' the new settings).    After doing this just a few times, though, I have found that it is rarer and rarer that I need to 'touch up' and re-save the settings.

The manual states something about not guaranteeing it will go back exactly every time. That being said both of my units have been off enough I have to adjust manually every time, plus I have "jerkiness" that Sony says I should not have. It seems to work great for others here. So I've got another one sitting here I am overdue getting help installed.

FWIW

when I had a 1000ES to test, the result was much like yours - it seemed to get pretty close but not dead on.

In Comparison with my 95ES it was more accurate in 1000éren, but not perfect (I could live fine with it as it was smile.gif)

Thanks for creating all those b stocks for those who can't afford a new one. Your new one is not going to be any different. Itt mainly how much you let it bother you. Others have a higher tolorence to doing this.

No, Sony said they had only heard of the "jerkiness" one other time. I have other issues with this one as well including dust blobs. Nobody will want the one I have now.

It just sounds/acts horrible when it jerks, which is at least 1/3rd of the time while using the motorized lens.

As far as tolerance, what is the point of having lens memory if I have to adjust every time (this isn't 3mm, its more like 3-4 inches off? I then when I adjust, it often jerks too, making it hard to dial in. No way on a 25k unit there is any "tolerance" for this.
post #3759 of 9699
That does seem excessive . Many have issues with the auto zoom function being slightly off but nothing like you are describing. they will fix it and it will become a b stock. If it was built by sony they can fix it, what they can'ty do is guarantee performance in excess of the design specifications.

Has any of you tried Panamorph's DC1 anamorphic lens on SONY VPL-VW1000ES?

post #3761 of 9699
Hi Guys,

I have had my projector for about a month now. I am very impressed so far; though; I am still figuring out everything but i have come across a reoccurring issue of some serious amount of picture jerkiness when i watch movies from Apple TV, roku and you tube - have any of you experienced this or am i doing something wrong in the settings on the projector or any of these 3 source devices. When I change from projector to my elite 50 inch plasma I don't see this issue.

Any good suggestions?

I have the exact same problem! My cable box does it too on occasion. I have tried turning off RC and it can help but doesn't make it go away. It doesn't do it on BluRay source.
post #3763 of 9699
Need to change film mode to get rid of that. I think it is Auto 2 but there is only 3 settings so one should work.

From the manual... I assume it should be set to Auto 1 for non-movie sources?

Auto 1: Suitable for reproducing the original picture movement.
Normally, set this to “Auto 1.”
Auto 2: Reproduces a 2-3 or 2-2 Pull-Down format video signal, such as
film sources, in a smooth picture movement. When a video signal
other than 2-3 or 2-2 Pull-Down format is input, the picture is played
back in progressive format.
Off: Plays back the picture in progressive format without detecting
video signals automatically.
post #3765 of 9699
I use Auto 2 for sports and Auto 1 for everything else.
post #3766 of 9699
I would think Auto 2 would be the same as Off for viewing sport based on the above descriptions.

Does anyone know the difference between "Reference" and "Cinema Film" preset? Beyond setting your own settings for each, there is something else in the preset that affects the image. I noticed in a few grainy dark scenes in Prometheus> The Reference preset added tons of additional noise to the image, especially scenes with faces against dark backgrounds. Looked like a mess. Same scenes looked clean in Cinema Film mode. Found similar in other films as well. I set both presets with all the same settings so there is something else changing the image that can not be corrected with an available setting. Unless I'm missing something but I don' think so.

I think the rc settings are saved separately for each preset, so maybe they're higher than your cinema mode... Check that first...

First thing I checked. Both were the same.

I am not sure what you guys are talking about. The default settings for eeach mode are different such as color space etc. I do not remember what the presets are and you might want to do a factory set to fIND THEM iF YOU haVE cHaNgeD them. Obviously I am not talking about difference in the preset settings for brightness, contrast etc. But basic ones like film mode, gamma, color correction etc.

Yes, by default they are different but I had matched both Reference and Cinema Film settings (gamma, color space, color correction, brightness... every setting). Yet there is a change when I cycle between the two presets.

If someone has Prometheus I can tell you which frame to pause on you should be able to see if for yourself if you're up to it.

I will give it a shot. What scene? Prometheus in Ref mode made my iris go nuts in a few scenes and I had to turn it off.

Pause to this scene at 19:51 into the movie and alternate between Reference and Cinema Film 1. Just make sure both presets match all settings. Her face looks very grainy in Reference mode but looks pretty clean in Cinema Film 1 (the scene has some grain already) but Ref mode really adds a lot.

Got some monster vision rf glasses and have no clue how they are supposed to hook up to the 1000.

Any help guys?

I just tested this and you're right Tony. It's a pretty drastic difference. Mine gets a lot darker in the reference mode....blacks a little blacker. Looks like a contrast difference between the 2 to me...

How about the image of her face? Do you see an increase in grain? BTW- important to make sure settings for both presets match.
post #3777 of 9699
This is strange. Each mode is supposed to be just a memory of various settings selectable in the menue. It is not suppose to select something not selectable in the menu.

Yeah, I saw that....but it looked to me like more of a veil of dark when switching to reference. Sorry about the lack of wording, not really an educated videophile. Both settings were the same. I wonder if this varies by projector? I vaguely remember doing this last year when I got one of the first 1000s....and remember the picture being unchanged on this very test.

Thanks Mookie. Anyone else see the same issue?
post #3780 of 9699
Well I'm late to the party as usual. But finally got my 1000es installed. Just wanted to say hi.

Wow just wow. Sooooooo much better than the vw200 it replaced. Yeah I know I know. It bloody well should have at the cost! But not always the case eh certainly not when to comes to, well, 2 channel audio for sure. ( that's my main bag to be fair not HC but boy do I love my movies and boy do I love this PJ)

No idea if I'm even close to setting it up right. I've read the first 50+ pages in this forum Some things I agree with some I don't

My screen ain't huge. It's an OLD studiotek130 1:85:1 aspect; 98 x 48/ 101" diagonal. PJ is 13ft back from screen and main seating is around 15.5ft. So I know I could go bigger no probs and probably will do soon. The viewing room is by no means bat cave but very dark at night. No houses near by

2d is immense.( even off sky satellite) 3d easily the best I've seen. I also have a Sony 3d TV for comparison

I've spent about 15hrs tweaking it and checking for flaws. Touch wood can't see any of the latter so far.

I haven't got Prometheus so cant check the above but can i just put a BIG shout out for HUGO. Much maligned on this thread and wrongly so IMHO.

Scorsese is the Master and uses brilliantly 3d angles camera work etc. particularly in the opening sequence : the snow flakes hit u in the face and the path thru the train station makes u dizzy! The soundtrack is superb too. A simply enchanting movie. I've seen it twice now and will watch it again and again

Each to his own eh?

This is how I set the pic. Chose 2:35:1 in menu, pic overlapped screen, zoomed it back to fit as close as. Mobed image down to bottom of screen. Got little black bars left n right and larger black area at top of screen? Am I close?

All help much appreciated

Incidentally there's guys in germany already modding and they say improving this thing. Thoughts?
