BenQ W1070 : DLP Full HD, 3D Ready with lens-shift for 1000$ - Page 264

post #7891 of 8471
I have never updated my firmware on mine but I have had HORRIBLE HDMI signal wait times ... always. This even when changing channels on DTV. Annoying as hell.

Not sure what my FW is but can I upgrade from it all the way to 1.06 skipping everything in between like you typically can with computer bios updates or do I need to start low and work up to 1.06?

"Yep, also when he is riding down the water flume with the water drops shooting out."

No scenes popped out for me in Tangled 3d Bluray when played via my PS3 and Benq W 1070..? Did u guys have some kind of different setting? Wat 3d glasses brand did u use?

I use true depth click fires item active ones and they work ver well on my cable 3d movies

Have you done the PS3 display calibration and set screen size to the size of your screen? This affects the 3d image.

If this is how the process works, then your caution that "anyone updating their firmware is losing that Out of the Box color accuracy" makes sense.

I had always assumed the factory calibration was generic to the model, and so the new settings that come with newer firmware might be a slightly more accurate calibration than the older ones. I assume that's what others on here are similarly assuming, hence their comments which seem in tension with your perspective.

Can anyone clarify whether projectors are individually calibrated in the factory?


Some manufacturers do employ a process of calibration, now keep in mind this is a mostly automated process and not as fine tuned as where an ISF level calibration would land (obviously they are not going to that extent).

However these models do appear to go through a process of calibration otherwise they would all have the same color settings as defaults, the several models that I have seen have not had the same color settings out of the box.

Yes I have set PS3 calibration for 3d settings.

You can update the firmware to the latest 1.08 and skip anything in between. The latest firmwares fix the HDMI issues.

Hey guys, I have the 120' screen from elite screens and the picture is so much darker on it than it is on the wall. Can anyone recommend a white back screen. Thanks
post #7898 of 8471
My glasses keep losing sync. Is this normal? I'm using the 3DTV corp's Hi-Shock DLP Pro glasses. It says at the top left of the screen 1080p 24hz. Please any advise would be appreciated.

Does this make sense? Do have it setup correctly ? Thanks in advance for the help

Put your HTPC in ycbcr 4:4:4 instead, apparently the greyscale tracking on the w1070 is better when fed that type of signal. I noticed a difference, but I've never properly calibrated mine. Someone else want to put up a link with the review from that calibrator who discovered this? This thread is huge, and I'm too lazy right now. Sundays and all...smile.gif

WOOT! I won the TrueDepth3d Glasses Giveaway =^_^=

on another note, has anyone hooked up anything to use left eye only, right eye only images? for like split gaming and so on? any computer software currently that will do this? I know you need special 3d glasses which TrueDepth was one of the companies that made them but they stopped >_< hopefully they will make some new ones.

Nice! Congrats, I entered that as well. I was hoping to compare and contrast them with the 3DTV Corps glasses I already have.

I guess I never thought about dual play tech and active glasses. I have it on my passive set, and it's pretty great. I really wish more games took advantage of it, but I suppose the market is relatively small.

Yeah its a small market but I see a lot of potential for the gaming market with two player verses games. smile.gif

As for your first remark about comparing, I have the 3dTV Corps glasses and one of the Firestorm XL soon to be four more and well the honest truth is they are almost spot on to each other, the TrueDepths inch out in front in all categories but I wouldnt say that the double price tag makes that a worth wild move but the customer support you get with them for some may be worth that extra price, either way I have always loved their products just the same. smile.gif

I'd love to try left / right two player gaming, ideally with some kind of box that accepts 720p / 60hz input signals via two HDMI cables, without costing an arm and a leg. What's the cheapest 2x 2D -> 3D multiplexer box?
post #7907 of 8471
Well if anyone is following my issue I shipped my unit back to Benq.

I know, it's all good. I'm missing my projector very much. Can't wait for my new replacement.
post #7912 of 8471
Well I called Benq today. Yesterday I rented Gravity 3D and noticed something wasn't right. The scenes had a fisheye type effect going on. I tried playing with settings but no luck. So today I rented Judge Dredd 3D to do some more testing since I don't own any 3D movies and I had the same problem. I'm using the W1070 with HDMI to PS3. The projector has 361 hours and is firmware 1.05. Any ideas anyone? 2D movies play fine. I told the tech support guy that I had some pictures and he asked for me to send them to him. They are from my phone but I think you can get the idea. Thanks in advance!

I don't have a PS3 but I found this searching.

After reading other threads is your PS3 up to date with latest software? Maybe rerun the auto setup and make sure the 3D settings are correct in the PS3. Just some things to try.
post #7914 of 8471
Thanks for the quick reply. My PS3 is running version 4.55 which is shows as being the latest update. I have rerun the auto video setup and set the size to 100 inches same as the screen. Thanks though.
post #7915 of 8471
To rule out the projector can you borrow a 3d player from someone? Or go buy a cheap Sony 3D bluray player just to see? I would start there.
post #7916 of 8471
We have a similar hook up for 3d. Sony PS3-->Pioneer Elite Receiver-->Benq 1070. I've got no problems with 3D or 2D. I would suspect it's the 3d settings on the Sony PS3. I'll review mine and post what I have.

post #7917 of 8471
I will have to see about borrowing another player. I think I know where I can get one. No reply from Benq on my email yet.
post #7918 of 8471
Hoping to do some testing tomorrow. Any reason I can't run COD Black ops in 3D on my xbox 360 instead of another 3D player? I can do that without borrowing anything but I'm not sure if it will tell me if it is the projector or the PS3 since the xbox will be displaying a 3D game where as the PS3 is displaying a 3D movie.
