Looking for pj that doesn't take too long switching between sources

post #1 of 4

Hi,
I'm currently using an acer h5360 for my living room tv. It's hooked up to my receiver through hdmi. When I switch sources (on the receiver) the h5360 scrolls through all the inputs until it settles back down on hdmi. I've tried locking the input on the pj to hdmi but that causes purple or green screens (defect)?. I'd like to upgrade to 1080p anyway so I'm wondering if you have any suggestions as to what would be a good upgrade. I've read that the newer acer h6510bd does the same thing, maybe not the stuck purple screen but the scrolling of inputs. I'm not brand loyal to acer but I do like the lumens they put out. My only requirement is that the "upgrade" be comparable with nvidia 3d. Thanks!

There is sometimes as setting for auto source or something to that effect.. will cause the projector to look for active source.. if it has it, turn it off.

Don't buy that brand, complain, let others know. Manufacturers that can't handle the basics have no business getting our dollars.

BenQ, Epson, Panasonic, Optoma, etc. do NOT have this issue. I'm not a fan of Viewsonic due to other, but similar, QC issues that are ridiculous.

Now, none of the switching is amazingly fast, as it often takes 5-10 seconds for a HDMI source to negotiate HDCP, but it certainly is faster than waiting for a projector to scroll through inputs.

My BenQ W1070 came out of the box with 'auto source select' turned on. I turned this feature off, and have had no issues at all. It sticks with HDMI input 1 and never causes me issues (yet... knock on wood).

Thanks for your input. I'm now considering the Optoma HD25-LV does anyone know if that one will work with Nvidia's 3D?
