This post about running the projector unmounted reminded me about something a calibrator told me in 2007. I wanted to ask here to see if anyone ever heard about what the calibrator told me.
I had a Vidikron Vision 80 (OEM JVC HD2K) at the time, and had run the projecter non-inverted (on the feet) for about an hour after my room was built, but before I had hung the projector. The projector was calibrated inverted (on a ceiling mount), and the calibrator asked me if I had run it with the projector non-inverted, as he noticed something (I do not recall the specifics) with the image. I was shocked that he could tell, and I admitted that I had indeed run the projector non-inverted. He proceeded to tell me that I should always run the same way (inverted or non-inverted) it would be mounted.
I don't know if that was something particular to those early JVC's, to the lamps at the time, or if he had a gift to see things in the image. So, I was just curious if anyone had ever heard about this before. I know you guys are a picky bunch, so thought this is the best place to ask!
