Official Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 5010 / 6010 thread - Page 59

post #1741 of 3334
Just purchased and installed the Epson 6010 and have noticed a strange behavior. When I first turn on my cable box the picture starts out with washed out colors and slowly improves over time. This does not occur when I start watching a DVD. Is this normal? If not, does anyone have a suggestion on how to correct it or how to diagnose the problem.
post #1742 of 3334
Reverse the sequence you turn the equipment on by

That might help or might solve the problem all together, but it seems to me you probably have a bad chip-set

Select one of these settings:
■ Normal-for standard TV broadcasts, computer images, or images with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
■ Full-for images recorded in 16:9 (wide-screen) format and squeeze mode.
■ Zoom-for letterbox images.
■ Wide-for expanding a 4:3 image to 16:9 so it fills the whole screen. This stretches only
the right and left sides of the image; the central part is unchanged.

Not sure if that answered your question?

jnabq,
Thanks for the reply. I'll check out the shift dials as I did not feel the indentation when I was playing around with the projector.

Pg. 26 of the manual also states "when displaying 720p, 1080i or 1080p signals through the HDMI or Component video port, the aspect ratio is automatically selected and you cannot change it.".
This is what I experienced via an HDMI connection with my Blu-Ray player. The Aspect Ratio was set to Normal and even though the menu options for other Aspect Ratios came up, I was unable to change it. I was surprised that Normal was automatically selected and not Full.

When on a 3d image the screen shows 2 mirror images and with glasses on nothing changes Should I see 2 mirror images on either side of the screen? I have the projectors settings right and the glasses are turned on but I dont see a 3d image. What should I be doing?

Assuming you have a 3D capable Blu-Ray player, and have selected 3D playback on your player, you should be looking at a double image with displacements according to the depth of the 3D effect--not two images side-by-side. If so, press the 2D/3D button on the Epson
remote. You will see the 3D warning notice in the middle of the display.
Press ESC and your glasses should produce the 3D image if they are turned on.
To test while watching, push the glasses button and you will revert to the
'displaced image'.

What he said, plus it sounds like you will also need to set your 3d mode to "Side-By-Side" to tell the projector that the signal it is receiving is really a 3d SBS image.

Thanks guys I will try this tonight. The signal is from my cable tv provider I guess I should also look at my cable box settings and see what options that offers.

Ah, okay...in that case, it's just a matter of setting the projector's 3d settings to Side-by-Side...there's no way for it to know that when you leave it in "auto".

Need help.
When watching 3D, the other remotes does not work. Devices is not responding.I can not stop playing or pause, or change the volume on the receiver. Sometimes the signal from the control reach, but only in one case out of ten. Receiver and other devices located at a distance 13 feet from me, the projector is hanging over my head. Very annoying this is, what to do?

Yeah, it's absolutely frustrating... It's because the projector is spewing TONS of IR into the room to control the 3d glasses. It overwhelms everything else.

What I do is press the 2d/3d button to turn off 3d (even this takes a while to be understood), then do the commands that need doing, then hit the button again to turn 3d back on. Yuck.

It is true of any 3D Projector.

There are only two solutions --

1) Make sure your other AV equipment is not in-line of sight
with the Projector or your IR repeater is Covered. My Equipment
is in another room - but I have an IR Receiver at the front of
the Screen. Initially I covered the IR receive during 3D.

2) Then I switched all AV Control to RS232 and now there are
NO PROBLEMS.

I have a Harmony 550 and have no issues as long as I point the remote directly at the device(BD player, receiver, projector) if 3D is engaged.

Haven't tried using the manufacture provided remote though.

*I sit about 8 feet from my BD player/Receiver.

Dont understand what means is not in-line of sight? My all AV equipment is in front 13 feet of me , and a pj is under my head.

I use a Harmony One, but harmony and all manufacturer remotes do not work, even if they bring very close to the device.

What you Describe is in-line-of-sight - The IR Emitter
on the Projector is AIMED at your AV equipment. The IR
emitted sends IR to your screen which is where your AV
equipment is - all AV equipment is in front 13 feet of me

I have just purchased the Epson Powerlite Pro cinema 6010. I am living in Norway, so I have bought it thrue Ebay.com. In Europe we dont have this model, just the 3010 and the 5010. I just have some questions I hope that you can help me with:

1: What is the difference between the home cinema 5010 and the pro cinema 6010?

2: I am going to buy a screen, but I am not sure to buy a 92 inch or a 100 inch screen. I will be sitting about 10.5-11 feet from the screen.

3: About zoom: The projector lense will be about 10' 3" from the screen. If I am going for the 100 inch screen, I have to zoom almost maximum on my 6010 to fill the hole 100 inch screen. What about the picture quality, will the picture quality suffer and dont be that good because of the zoom, or will it be ok?

4: I see that there is a new firmware out for this model. Is this major thing I have to do?

5: What about calibration? I am not familiar with this, do I have to do this?

I hope you guys can help me out here.

Ok. Good enough. Any specific model?

Just keep in mind that the tint from non-Epson 3D glasses may be different, which will change the look of the picture slightly in contrast and may be color.

So far, the majority like the fit, feel, weight and experience with the Epson glasses.

Some have used the PS3/Sony 3D glasses, which can be had for around $50 if you shop around to be a good cost effective alternative.

I hope you guys can help me out here.

1. Black case, 2 pairs of 3D glases included, THX preset, longer warranty(this may not apply to you UNLESS the ebay guy was an actual Epson dealer), extra bulb & ceiling mount.

2. Go for the 100" screen assuming the front of the projector will be about 11ft away from the screen.

Check out this calculator for distance/screen size.
http://www.eliteprojectorcalculator.com/

3. PQ with zoom will be be fine and any degradation will be negligible.

4. FW update is a breeze. Just check out this thread for details.
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1399426

5. Just set it to THX and forget about it.
Unless you're real picky, the THX preset will probably work out for you until the bulb gets around 100 hours on it.
Then at that time, you might want to calibrate, which if you want to do properly will require some meters.

Had to finally break down and put some tape on my vert lens shift dial. The image has been dropping about 3-4" over a 5-6 day period. They should've made the operation for the lens shift a little more robust I guess. We'll see if the tape works, if it doesn't, I hate to consider a return since everything else about it has been great.

To me,... I rather sit closer and have a stunning picture
I have a HC screen of 106"and a White screen of 120"
when I lower the larger screen people are impressed by the size, but most of the time they find it to big for watching movies, specially with subtitles.
When I let them see the 106"version they are more impressed by the quallity of that picture.
So now this is the screen that I use for most of the time.

The same is with the cinema's.
When I go to the Pathé Cinema here, with 14 theatres in the building.
You have a few theaters that are smaller than the larger ones, but they use the same projector, so you end up with a mpre dynamic quallity picture.
I'm alway's happy when the same movie play's in those smaller ones.
The largest theatres are very dim in picture quallity and the pans are dramatic and sharpness is bad.

My 2ct's

Hi!

I have just purchased the Epson Powerlite Pro Cinema 6010. You say you have to screens but are using the 106 inch more and more. Can I ask you how far your projector linse is from the 106 inch screen? And how far away from the screen are you sitting? I just wonder, because I don't have bought a screen yet.

I hope that you can answer me soon.

Regards,

Magnus

Use this calculator to determine which screen size will work with the distance you have to work with.

I know that a 100 inch screen will fit to my distance from the screen. What I am worried about is if I have to zoom max on my pro cinema 6010 to fill the 100 inch screen, will the picture/colours suffer? If I choose a smaller screen, I dont have to zoom that much.

Has anyone had an issue where the sound comming from the speakers is accurate/on time and the picture has a delay? I am in the process of moving and today I redid my surround sound system and ceiling mounted my projector in my new place. When I was finished; I turned on my ps3, the pj and my surround sound. The sound/talking is inline with the movie but their lips and movements are delayed. To me that has to be a picture problem but im using the same hdmi cord and everything. The only difference is im using a little more speaker wire because the speakers are a little further apart.

What are you using to play the media ? An HTPC or a bluray player ?

Does the 5010 have enough lumens to project on a 159" Dalite hp screen at 17' Light controlled room.
