As of today I have done a tube swap from my XG-110 to my newly acquired XG-852. The 852 is now hanging on the ceiling. I transferred the case pieces as well for now but may paint the 852's case as well. Just to prevent confusion (mostly myself) I am going to start a new thread about the 852 but will have a link in my signature back to this thread as this is where it all began for me with the XG series of projector. I'm hoping that the 852 will be an improvement and will aid in better convergence as well as now firing off with three minty tubes.

I don't know if that all that as a pilot, but a woman with as much interest and knowledge
of HT as you. It's downright exciting. By the way, are you entertaining marriage proposals?

Sorry to burst your bubble but "she" is married. The picture is actually my wife but she is flattered by your kind words. As for HT she tolerates my hobby pretty well as long as I don't get out of control with the volume!

Oh! That sounds very familar, as a matter of fact, that's exactly my situation. I don't
get it, she loves watching movies and she really loves music videos because of my audio gear.
But if I mention that we need something to enhance the experience, I'm reduced to becoming
a lobbyist. Good luck dropzone, I withdraw my marriage proposal.

It doesn't change, does it? One tiny pix of a woman in this forum, and the guys are all over it.

Markeetaux, too bad you weren't here when Rhonda was.

Yo Curt! Are you going to make it to the Virginia BBQ/CRT meet this October?

The theater goes dark tonight so I can change the red tube and install a new Elite fixed-frame screen. Fingers crossed that all goes as planned. The wife is out of town for two weeks so I was hoping to get in some movie time with obnoxiously loud volumes and such. Hopefully this wont take me too long...

Haven't had a lot of time to work on things but I did get the projector pulled down last night and the red tube changed out. I was able to get the CPC magnets pretty close to where they were before so maybe I will be spared doing this adjustment. I let the unit run for an hour or so last night and all seems fine so far. I pulled down my laminate screen and all of the supporting structure I had behind it. It's been almost two years since I saw that window behind there! Tonight I will probably get the new screen assembled and hung on the wall but I have to find something to fill that window area in. I'm getting a lot of light through there even with the plantation blinds closed. I don't want the sun baking on the back of the new screen and I certainly can't have any daylight spilling through into the room.

For those that haven't read the beginning of the thread, here is what I started out with and what I'm back too, minus that 1x4 across the window. Everything that was covering the window is removed now. The black fabric bordering the screen area is still there, just not shown in this old picture. Any ideas what I might use to fill in or cover the window while still maintaining a flat surface for the new screen?

I just realized it's been almost three months since I posted to this thread. Things that have changed:
1.Replaced the screen with an Elite Fixed Frame 120".
2.Replaced the red tube in the projector.
3.Filled in the window area behind the new screen with better insulation and fabric to totally block light from outside.
4.Replaced my Panasonic BD-30 Blu Ray player with the Oppo BDP-83 (awesome machine by the way.)
5.Last but certainly not least, I had Ken Whitcomb here in September to do a calibration on the projector! Thanks to Ken I'm really making the most of the XG now.

I'm also working on a new project with the WDTV Live media player. I have had it for about 2 weeks and while it has it's issues I really like what it can do. I can't decide if I'm going to keep it or go for the upcoming Dune BD Prime player.

Dropzone

The colors are so vibrant and it seems that for a rough setup you are doing great.

Keep it up and...nice job!!!

Oh, I need to take some more recent screenshots since Ken has been here. Not that pictures can do it justice but it looks much better to me in person.
