has this happened to anyone, is firmware change possible reason for this odd behavior, I will be trying harmony remote and see if that resolved the problem.

A few users seem to have gotten bad remotes. Give Benq a call and I am sure they will send you another one. I would also change the batteries if you have not already done so.

Does anyone try to connect Intel NUC D54250WYK with this projector?

I have an issue with connecting NUC with Benq w1070 projector via HDMI cable (v1.4).
When I connect them with HDMI cable the image on screen is in green color. At the same time, projector's menu is in normal colors. Here is a links with photos of "green screen":

Because of deep HDMI socket in projector - there is bad contact between plug and socket. Thanks to Benq tech. support.

You can also use Monoprice Redmere cables with no problem. They are thin and seem to work with the early Benq's. They seem to have made a hardware revision with the latest ones shipping.

Hey, guys with the Harmony remotes (especially the 650), can you tell me if the devices can issue discreet codes for Aspect Ratio (looking for 4:3 and Auto), High Altitude (On / Off). I saw mention in earlier posts of discreet codes for Power (On / Off), Preset (Cinema, etc.). It may be that the W1070 itself doesn't support some of these other than through menu toggles - just looking to see what can be done in these areas for fully automating the process.

Thanks,
talked to benq rep and they would soon be sending a new one, they asked for serial number and address to send to.
she was saying that they will have to reprogram based off serial number, does that mean that changing firmware on projector may render projector and remote incompatible again in future.

thanks for your help.

I've got Firmware 1.07 does anyone know what the updates are in 1.08?

Hi All,
Might need your help/advice.

My set up is as follows:
- Benq W1070
- PS3
- TrueDepth 3D Active Glasses rechargeable rated @ 144hz
- Sony DN1040 Receiver
- all connected with HdMi cables.
- Comcast HD Box


Issue:
When I play 3d movies like Jack the Giant Slayer, Journey to the Mysterious Island 2, Wreck it Ralph, etc from my Via comcast cable the projector allows me to select Side By Side 3D format only, and it displays the movies in 1080i / 60hz. The Movies quality is Outstanding and so is the 3D Depth & especially the 3D POP OUT EFFECt. Pop outs are just amazing.


However when I play 3D Blue ray Movies like Avatar, Pacific Rim, Tangled, via my PS3 the projector allows me to select Frame Packing or Top Bottom 3D format only, and it displays the movies in 1080p / 24hz. The Movies quality is average at best & doesn't look like a 3D movie although projector says its in 3d Mode. The 3D Depth is just OK. And especially theres is NO 3D POP OUT EFFECT AT ALL.

Basically 3d movies are Way much Better via my Cable, and very average woth 0 pop out effect when played through my PS3.

I need your Advice and Input to how to make my 3D Blue Ray experience Look like my 3D Cable Experience. Thanks. Have already looked round on all forums and no specific issue like mine has been discussed. Thanks for your input in Advance.......smile.gif

3d blurays thru the ps3 have to be set to framepack if u didn't set it that way
post #7840 of 8477
My projector auto detects the 3d blue ray from ps3 and sets it to frame packing format 1080p/24hz. But still not the same effect as wat I get with my cable 3d movies on SBS 1080i /60hz.

u think is there any other setting etc ??????
post #7841 of 8477
Your 3d cable really looks that good? I herd there are other setting on 1.08 upgrade I'm still on 1.05

Blu-Rays are frame packed, it's as simple as that. I don't know why your streamed/cable content would look that superior, most everyone would argue the opposite. I suppose if it were really that important to you, you could rip your 3D Blu-Ray movies to SBS or T&B with DVDFab. I really can't see that being worth it though personally.

I just want to find out if there is any other setting that would help to achieve the effect depth / 3d POP OUT EFFECT via my Blue Ray that I get via 3d cable movies..

Also can anyone giver directions / links on how to upgrade my firmware from 1.6 to 1.8 . Thanks . Dint have clue on how to this.

Also wat does the "Wireless" button on the remote do as when I click if if does nothing...?
post #7844 of 8477
There are instructions for firmware upgrades littered through this thread, and there is a link to the firmware with the instructions just a few pages back. Search the thread, it's all here.

Maybe it's the PS3 ... I find that BD 3D framepacking movies are as good or better than downloaded SBS or T/B movies. My Sony BD player has a 3D depth/pop setting (normal, +1, +2 - or something like that) ... but I keep it on normal. Since you have a Sony device maybe it has a similar 3D setting?
post #7846 of 8477
My PS3 does not have any 3d depth/POP Setting at all. Checked it again.

There has to something else...
post #7847 of 8477
There has to be some setting issue cause how else can I explain that 3D POP OUT EFFECT for 3d movies from my Comcast cable on SBS 1080i/60hz and not having any 3D POP OUT EFFECT when playing 3D BLue Ray movies from my PS3 on FramePacking @ 1080P/24hz ????

Unless movies like Pacific Rim, Avatar, or Tangled have 0 Pop out Effect... But I'm thinking its gotta be something else ????

Can't speak for Tangled, but Pacific Rim and Avatar both have very little pop-out, it's all about the depth. If pop-out is what you yearn for, the majority of 3D probably will disappoint you. That being said, there are some great 3D movies with a lot of pop-out, but in my experience, it's mostly the animated flicks.
post #7849 of 8477
But nothing POps Out for me in Pacific Rim & Avatar. Zero Pop outs when played via my PS3.

Since u said that there were at least little pop outs.

On the other hand Pops out all over the when watching 3d movies like Jack the Giant Slayer, Journey to the Mysterious Island 2, Wreck it Ralph, etc from my Via comcast cable.
post #7850 of 8477
Have u tried playing the same movie thru ps3 and thru cable to see how they compare ?

Well, if you really are taking me that literal, then no, there is no pop-out in Pacific Rim that I can remember, and maybe one or two scenes from Avatar, and even those weren't that exaggerated. Kids/animated films (like the ones you seen on Comcast) almost always have far more pop-out than other movies. Journey actually probably has some of the best pop-out for a movie out there.

Best suggestion out there is to compare like the above poster said, or watch a movie like Madagascar 3, Rise of the Guardians, or the "fish scene" from IMax Under the Sea on your PS3 setup, then if you see no pop-out, there may be something wrong.

Hello everybody, I just bought this projector and am going to buy the Peerless mount based off of the recommendations in this thread. My question is this: based off of the Benq calculator website, it says to mount my projector roughly 12 inches from the ceiling. Will I need to buy an extension for this mount? I'm assuming no, since it has vertical lens shift??? Is this correct? Does anybody have a formula or website which shows when I would need to buy an extension??

 

Thank you so much for all of the knowledge and expertise that you guys have. I am a total newbie to all of this and I couldnt have done any of my home theatre w/o all of the knowledgable folks on this website.

post #7853 of 8477
I thought the POP OUT is made by the Special Effects Team who made the Movie, the Software (aka Bluray or Stream) does contain only in two different frames, the Players Job is to decode these two different Frames, the Projectors job is to show these two different Frames

No POP Out in the Movie no POP OUT to watch, regardless of the Source, Player or Display.

So interesting issue has just occurred with my projector, it seems HDMI Port 1 has failed, at first I suspected it was my Denon Receiver but after changing to HDMI Port 2 it all works again, the signal on HDMI Port one cuts in and out and at times the Projector says No Signal.

Seems strange because it's been working fine for the past year and I haven't modified my setup in any way, any ideas or anyone else seen this problem? Cheers.

The early 1070's had poor HDMI ports that were later changed. I would suggest changing your cable and try again. If it it cutting in and out it seems like a connection issue. Try another cable and be very careful in seating the cable.
Fault found the problem, my receiver is dying, took it out of the circuit and issue goes away, just ran out of warranty too, wonderful! Thanks for the help guys.

Opinions vary - but I'm totally satisfied with my Tru Depth 3D Firestorm XL glasses. Don't see how they could be any better. Large, comfortable, go over regular glasses and covers all the screen and much more, no red flash/tint, don't lose sync, not overly dark with great contrast and are rechargeable. Best available in my opinion.

Hi, are you aware that there is a dedicated topic on 3D glasses for the W1070 / W1080ST? You may like to take a look.

What totally sucks is I have it near the sealing on a shelf.
But now I have to lay the projector on its back ....
It can only project or from low to high or upside down from high to low frown.gif
post #7860 of 8477
Why can't you mount it upside down below the shelf?

Just use appropriate nylon distances so the projectors cooling works and long bolts with washers.
