Maybe I need to reset the projector. When using the shift and zoom function it stays in 1.85 mode it never is stretched to 2.35 mode
. Also, under the position button there is a 1.85 and 2.35 preset already there but when and click on those it doesnt appear to do anything?
Any other specs about setup needed? Suggestions?
I think you understand it wrong
- the projector will not "stretch" the Picture. ( the only difference between showing a 1.85:1 and 2.35:1 movie, is the setting on the projectors zoom and shift
- with a 1.85:1 Picture you will zoom the Picture in to fill top and bottom and there will be Black bars ad each side on screen ( unless you have masking ? ), then memories the setting in a preset ( etc. "1" )
- with a 2.35:1 Picture you will zoom the Picture out to fill top and bottom Again and the will be allmost no Black bars and the will be out on the frame off the screen ( not seen ), then memories the setting in a preset ( etc. "2" ) and the projector
Now everytime you see a 1.85:1 movie - hit the preset 1 , and the projector will fit the Picture correct in size
Now everytime you see a 2.35:1 movie - hit the preset 2 , and the projector will fit the Picture correct in size
Try with the PS3 ( all scaling "off" in it ), set a 2.35:1 ( 2.40:1 ) BR movie in it ( like "Cars" or something ), get the film running.
Set the projectors mode to "normal"
Now zoom the Picture out /in til it fits the screen ( some small Black bars at left and right should be out of the screen and on the Black frame frame of the screen - you shouldnt could see them )
If that dosnt do it, could you please take a Photo of the Picture on screen to show what it looks like , to better see what goes wrong.
