I'd also like to have a 150" screen versus the 115 inch I've had for 6 years now. I know this is pushing the limit. Perhaps someone here has used the 5010 on a screen that large. Also, I've never had 3D either. It's not big on my list, but 150 inch 3D screen will be very cool.

I have a 5010 at slightly under 16 foot throw distance with a seymour AV AT fabric 152" diagonal 16:9 screen. I like a brighter image so I run the 5010 in living room mode on ECO. It is also acceptable to me (but just barely) in cinema mode, although this only works because my room is a dark cave with a lot of black acoustic panels.

Guys,

Thanks for all your advice. I have my projector, screen, audio & everything all setup & working good. I have to say - we're really impressed & loving it. 3D is out of this world - its very theater like. Blew our 3D Plasma away.

I have 3 questions ...

a). I'm using 42's suggested settings ... Eco, Fast Iris ... Between Natural & Cinema, I actually prefer Cinema, especially for Movies, but I like 'em both. However, I seem to be missing a little color in my picture. I'd like to get a little more color. I don't want to go about messing with some advanced settings like RGBCMY and all ... So I was wondering, can you guys suggest a simpler setting that I can us to get a little more color in the picture?

Dynamic looks really good - Vibrant & Colorful - but the picture is very grainy & noisy, so I definitely don't wan to use that.

b). We got the Epson 3D glasses with the PJ; as it turns out, they are very large for my wife - barely sit on her face. Is there any other glasses we can buy that work with this PJ but aren't that big? We didn't have this problem before with our 3D TV glasses (Samsung).

c). How do you update the firmware? I have an Ethernet cable connected from the RJ45 to my router - I thought that was for Internet access to the PJ for firmware updates & all. Looks like that's not the case. So how do you update the FW?

I'm sure as I try to get everything just right - ill have more questions. But this is it for now.

Thanks again guys - appreciate it.

1. Try turning up the Color setting under the Image menu up a notch or 3 to get more color saturation.
*You can also play with the skin tone setting.

2. The Epson glasses have little notches inside the arms. Adjust them up ro down and they should make the size smaller or larger.
3, FW is updated using the Service Port USB port.
*See my first post and follow the link for the FW update and download.

Also, there usually is some slight "halo" effect seen on the screen around the pixels of each color on LCD projectors, is that what you are seeing along the left edge, perhaps?
OTOH, the pixels on the green panel may be exhibiting some of that "smearing" we saw in one of the other member's earlier photos of the blue pixels on his projector; in that case , there could definitely be a manufactuing issue with a batch of the green panels (or the optics directing the image from the green panel) in the projectors you are looking at...

Hello, so no the green is OK the whole way, only the last left vertical line on left side(celling mounted PJ) in more greenish or almost completely green. When doing convergence alignment, it is not possible to move blue or red line into the green line to make it white. It just disappear just before the green line, so it must be that panels are misaligned. Or am I missing something ? Is your projector uniform and you are not seeing such anomaly probably ?

Thanks,

Tom

How much lens shift are you using? It may be chromatic abrasion you are seeing?
Also, if you're not running FW v104, the panel alignment is backwards when ceiling mounted.

I Would at a minimum upgrade to FW v104.

Hello.

FW is 104, and there is almost no lens shift. Thanks for the tips anyway.

post #2137 of 3331
Sorry, I'm at work so I can't look this up right now - Isn't there a setting on the Epson that turnes off overscan on the projected image, cutting off a few pixels from all the edges? Is overscan turned on or off? just curious if that would make any difference or if the green border still shows at either setting...

EDIT: Yes, page 49 of the User's Manual.

If possible, unmount the projector and set it on a table, flip the image in the Setup. Is the green pixel issue still present?
*From my experience, chromatic aberration was worse when the image was flipped for ceiling mount. I ended up building a shelf for my ceiling to mount the projector right side up.

Many people don't even realize the Epson glasses are adjustable for two size settings... As Plasmaman said, there is a small slider switch on the inside of each arm that adjusts the earpieces closer or farther from your head. When the slider is in the down position, the glasses are at the wider setting. Sliding them up (takes a little force, the slider clicks into place fairly hard) sets the earpieces narrower. IMPORTANT: Just remember that when you are going from the wide setting to the narrow setting, make sure you fold the arms of the glasses inward part-way before moving the slider, or you'll be forcing the arms inward with the slider itself and could damage the adjusting mechanism. It mentions this in the instructions for the glasses.

I'm seriously considering the Epson 5010 or 6010. I've never had 3D before, so I'm learning as I go.

My understanding is this projector is IR, for 3D glasses, which requires line of sight. I've read the signal is bounced off the screen back at the viewers.

The Epson site says to use their IR Extender if your projector is more than 16.5 feet away from the screen. Has anyone had any problems with IR glasses and signals? If I need the extender, where is it mounted? I'm designing my theater now and I'll need to plan for everything while the ceilings and walls are open.

The extender is plugged into a port on the rear of the pj. The only issues I've seen mentioned, some people had interference, with some other HT components remote signals, when viewing 3D.

What are the recommendations for a "Flush" ceiling mount for the Epson 5010.

I've decided that this is probably a great projector to go with and need to ceiling mount it flush.

I looked at the recommendation from Visual Apex which was the universal AV817 and it states that it's a flush mount but does not look like it based on the picture.

My current mount for my IN78 measure 2 3/4" inches from the ceiling to the plate that attaches to the projector.

WOW... just found the CHF1000 which is recommended on Epson's 5010 website but this thing is $240 OUCH!

if you are looking for a good mount I bought the Peerless PRG-UNV mount. I had that mount up and mount in no time. Took me about 20 minutes from unpacking the projector and mount to having it on the ceiling. Extremely sturdy and it has plenty of adjustments on it to fine tune and level the projector. I think I got mine for around $110.00, just do some google searches for it.

As it turns out, when I went into Service Menu to check the firmware, it appears I already had 104. It said "V104" at the end of that one line (as described in the tutorial). So I didn't need to upgrade Firmware after all.

So at this point I'm pretty much 'there' with my PQ settings; I've got the right color, brightness, black, white -- everything is looking pretty good. I only have 2 issues remaining now that I'm trying to resolve.

Issue 1: Panning.
I have to say I'm getting horrible panning - 2D or 3D. We've only seen a couple of 3D Movies and didn't notice it as much in there - but Camera Panning in 2D is ridiculous right now; the picture literally bounces & jerks like someone took the Projector and is shaking it violently up & down. Is there anything at all that can be done about this? I know the PJ's don't have a Cinema Smooth like feature (As TV's do) ... but is there anything that can at least reduce the violent panning? I could be missing a setting or something.

Issue 2: Focus/Sharpness
This is a strange & sort of "intermittent" issue - I'm not even sure how to explain this. I've adjust the best possible "Focus" using the Focus Ring on the projector. The thing is - I do have correct Sharpness & Focus most of the time and on most of the screen - But not All of the time & not All of the screen. I've noticed that the Center of my screen has the best focus/sharpness -- the Edges have the least Focus/Sharpness. Another thing I've noticed is, Blu-ray & HTPC playback of HD Movies I don't really see any Focus/Sharpness issues --- however, on the same Input I see Focus/Sharpness issues with Cable (HD) Programmimg and even XBOX 360 Gaming.

I have the Super-Res set at 2 and inside the Sharpness Menu, I have "4" for everything --- the Thick Line, Thin Line -- All four of them. I've played around extensively with these settings but I can't achieve a 100% Focus on the entire screen ... there is always some Blur somewhere.

There is one other issue I noticed ... I'm not getting a very good Picture for my XBOX 360 Gaming. It's either too blurry or too sharp; characters are rather jaggedy instead of smooth ... and overall the picture is somewhat awash; I was just curious ... anyone else here using XBOX 360 with their PJ -- what kind of settings are you using?

We did try the adjustment; It still wasn't very comfortable for her. But I did find these Panasonic 3D Glasses listed on Epson's website as officially supported for this PJ - they are available in Small, Medium or Large. I'll get a small pair, only $60 bucks, and see if that works for her.

Frey - You had mentioned adjusting "convergeance" in one of your previous posts --- what is convergeance? I don't see that as an option.

Thanks.

1. What is your source for movies? blu-ray player, PS3, DVD player?
If blu-ray player, is the player set to output 24fps.

2. These panning issues occur on slow panning or fast action side to side panning?
3. The Epson has an option called Frame Interpolation that is simular to Cinema Smooth. This will help with panning when set at higher settings but does give the picture that soap opera look.

4. Welcome to projectors. You will not achive true focus across the entire screen due to the lens is not flat.
The best thing to do is display some text and get the middle 40% section as focused as possible.
*Also, wait until the projector is powered on for at least 30 minutes before focus adjustment.
The components heat up and if you focus adjust when cold/first turned on, the focus may drift when warmed up.

5. Are you using HDMI from Xbox to projector?

Thanks again for helping me out with all this; I'll use your numbering for responses.

1. Primary source for movies is an Intel "Sandy Bridge" HTPC - I have a mixed collection of 1080p MKV's, M2TS and full Blu-ray ISO's. Secondary source is an actual Samsung Blu-ray Player. Both Blu-ray Player and HTPC are set to output @ 24fps. The Sandy Bridge Intel CPU provides the 24fps output, just like a Blu-ray player.

2. Both! The few scenes that strike out in my memory have a slow panoramic pan ... like showin the city or the landscape side to side.

3. I did not know about Frame Interpolation. I'll give that a shot and see how it looks. I never used 'Cinema Smooth' on my Samsung 3D Plasma because the Soap Opera effect was unbearable; but panning wasn't this bad. I can kinda imagine that since it's a bigger screen -- the defects also get more evident.

4. I will try to Focus again when i'm at least 30 minutes into PJ running --- but quite honestly, I think I'm OK with the Focus/Sharpness. It's definitely not as big an issue. The HD content from HTPC or Blu-ray player is almost 80% ~ 90% in focus, and that's good enough for me. I agree about your Text idea - I think Text is what's most noticeable to be In or Out of focus.

5. I have the Yamaha RX-A2000 Receiver. I have 4 devices connected to it via High Speed HDMI Cables (1.4a), the HTPC, Blu-ray Player, Comcast Cable and XBOX 360. I have the Reciever connected to the Projector via High Speed HDMI Cable. So essentially I'm switching inputs on my Reciever --- the PJ only gets the one input - the Reciever. There is NO Video Processing on the Reciever. Any sort of Video Processing has been turned OFF on the Reciever; a straight video signal is passed on from the devices to the PJ via HDMI cables through the Reciever. This is the same setup I had before with my Samsung PN63C8000 3D Plasma. Just the TV has been replaced with the PJ -- everything else is exactly the same.

Thanks!!

Anyone know of any good dealers in the Chicago area that may be willing to work on the price of the 6010? I've tried a few dealers, but none will budge from the $3500 price.
post #2151 of 3331
Not sure I understand about "throw distances" as relates to screen size. I am considering either 5010 or 6010. My room is about 16'9" front to back. I want to have the screen on the front wall-so how do I figure out how far back to place the projector. I have read that the closer within the throw range is better to achieve a brighter picture, but the closer you are means a smaller screen size?
I would like to have about a 100' -110" screen size, so how far back would these projectors need to be positioned?
I s there a real disadvantage in placing it on the back wall, subtracting for the size of the pj, about 15'9"?
Thanks

I think you got it right. "Throw distance" is the distance from the screen to the projector. The further this distance, the bigger the screen you can have.

The further the distance, the larger the picture but you lose some lumens to.
Use this calculator to determine min/max screen size for a given distance.
It also calculates lumen output and loss over use.

Guys, thanks for the responses about throw distance, but I didn't really ask the correct questions(s).
If my room, which is 2x6 exterior studded, is 17' ong by 13' wide and 8' ceiling, to get a screen of about 110 to 120" diag, what would be the best positions for the front of the projector and the viewing seats (only doing one row)? Should the projector be behind the seating area, or is this of no significance-can the projector be in front of the seating area (as I am writing this, I would think that is probably not good)??
Thanks again

You can have your projector at the back wall, anywhere from 12' from the screen to the back wall, but the back wall will keep it out of the way.
post #2156 of 3331
Agree, My room is almost exactly the same. I have a very high shelf on the back wall with the projector sitting upright on it. Cheapest projector mount you can get. It costs like 20 bucks for a couple brackets and a short shelf board. My front row is at 7' from my 120" screen. That is too close for some people. I have a 20" high riser with a couch on it for the second row. This is at 11' or so. The high riser is nice so you can lay down on the couch and see over front row people. Also the 20" was perfect for my subwoofer and a few big storage totes. If you put your projector closer to the screen you get slightly better brights and (very slightly) worse blacks. The projector is plenty bright anyway, so I wouldn't take that into consideration. The more important issue is fan noise. In 3D bright mode it gets a bit loud, and if it was in front of you, or above, it would be distracting.

It will depend on how much cheaper you want get. If it is authorized dealer they can't go any lower than what epson tells them. Have you tried ABT? I always try different sales guys, I love that store.
Well good luck.

On the other note, I have been reading and reading but can't really find the answer. I do have 5010 and it is great, but to me I'm missing pop out in 3D, it does have great depth. Journey 2 was great to watch but still only pop out I have seen, is that kid from YouTube videos:(
Anything what can help it???? I'm running from htpc xfx 6870 straight to PJ.
To me it isn't like in theaters and yes I have seen quite few movies in 3D.

Just so I understand-you say anywhere from 12'-does that mean that the minimum throw distance for this projector is around 12'?
Thanks again
post #2159 of 3331
Hey guys, bought the 6010 and initial impressions are very good, liking it.

Never had anything to do with 3D so here are few of my questions regarding it:

1. In the settings for 3d, you have 3d enable, then auto/2D-3D conversion/left to right/top to bottom.
What settings do you use for that?
For example, my free to air tv station has a 3D channel and the screen is split left to right, so to watch it everytime i have to go into the epsons meny and select left to right and then i can watch it in 3D!
Why doesnt it detect it automatically?

If i put a 3D movie on, and i have to select it as well, how will i know which one to select, what if it isnt top to bottom or left to right, which one do i select then?
Do the epson glasses switch off automatically? Also when they are on i get no light on the glasses itself only for a few seconds when i press them initially then they go off, is this normal?

Now, for 2D questions lol.
To get the best smoothest motion( im use to DLP), what setting should i use?
I noticed there was frame interpolation and smooth motion, what numbers should i use.
Iris setup... auto/normal/high, whats that about and whats the best setting for blacks.

hope im not asking too much.
cheers

Hi guys -

Just got the 5010e a couple of weeks ago and so far I am really loving it. I am having one weird issue that I hope you can offer some advice on.

The wireless HD signal is great - no issues whatsoever once it is up and running. The problem is startup - I always get the "Wireless HD connection failed" message when powering up - but if I manually turn off and on the wireless unit the connection is pretty much immediate, and then works fine for the duration of whatever I'm watching, including switching sources from Blu-ray to DirecTV. The unit is located only about 12 feet away from the projector, at a very slight angle.

I use a universal remote (Pronto) macro to turn on things in this sequence: projector, receiver, Blu-ray. Screen is electric and on a 12v wireless trigger.

Equipment is Denon AVR-4311 and Denon DBP2012UD Blu-ray. DirecTV HD DVR.

Any brilliant ideas?

Thanks!

Mark
