Ah yes, the other Zilla convert.

Are you going to have a thread with your progress?

Yea, a lot like that except at CEDIA last year he could carry on a perfectly intelligible conversation with a few drinks in him and the cigar in his mouth the whole time.I thought that this was a lost art.

Thanks Mark. I would like to also be involved in this, though I'll not be able to be present.

I'm getting to point that I've reached my best with these mods. Technically, I've accomplished everything I had hoped to achieve. I've done that and more. It's now time to wrap the mods in a nice package and pass them on to Tim. I have a few other projects to now focus on. And being able to have my work in several of the best setups on the planet, is a real feather in my cap..

I'm really enjoying the whole process of you guys bringing this all together. I know as you know, that you'll be getting something really special once all things are finished.

I'm on the phone with Terry at least once a week. So your setup will not go on without my Involvement - that's very important to me..

Welcome back JB!

I did make it up your way last Thursday. I had to go to a naval base in Philly near the airport. Other than it being near 95 and the airport, it had NAVSEA on the sign outside. I'm working on a CAVE system there, so I'll be back in the area if you'll ever want to stop by and see what a CAVE looks like in action.

I'm also still coming that way later this coming week. This time I'm stopping by your place in route to New Jersey. I've been very busy with so many things that at times I often forget what day it is. I need a vacation as well, but for now I have to re-program and possibly de-design a very sophisticated sound system at another military base near Delaware. This system is a part of a blend and CAVE. It has 6 or 8 Christie Digital Mirage projectors on four pipe blend and CAVE setup. My most elaborate today. It uses a 3DP blender.

Wish you had the time to come down this week and help with this, because I'm working with programming a Crestron, so I'll have to take all programming to the shop and put it on my Crestron system and work things out there before returning to the site. I have three days to work wonders. This is a huge system that MUST go back on line ASAP..

Why don't you come into Dulles Airport, which is right near Williams. And if you do that, we'll make sure you're picked up.

My 12' SMX frame showed up on friday. Safe to say I have a healthy new respect for a 12 foot screen.

We will start welding & fabricating a mounting system for my two Ultras this week. No ceiling currently exist that we can use.

Tidbit of other news, a PayPal refund from Caspers ill-fated Marquee input arrived this week.
post #39 of 514
I am in Atlanta now, so if Terry wants to make a road trip and others want to make a road trip then I would be amenable to coming.
post #40 of 514
William,
So how is the set-up going?

Need help?

I can stand around as usual and ask a bunch of questions and distract MP and JB.

Just got back from being away from August 23. Took a week in the Colorado mountains with my wife before Cedia. She did most of the driving because my left eyelid has been drooping shut except for eary morning. Pretty much killed any 3D viewing at Cedia. My wife went home the day before Cedia started. With the aid of my GPS and one open eye I drove fine. I ony smoked 4 cigars over the whole 2 weeks in Colorado.

This is the first time I have seen this thread.

Of course I'll be there.

I assume the thing will flow onto Sunday too?

My house is open to housing. Let me know who needs a pace and who is flying in and out of BWI, by far the cheapest airport.

William will have my Radiance. Hopefully a lot more features will be enabled by then. The Moome card works well with it, when my projector works, though neither will do 1920 or whatever x 1080p at 72. Lesser 1080p at 72 should be possibe.

William. You know nothing about everything that could go wrong in CRT land going wrong. Hell you had a watchable picture for most of the weekend. My projector with Moome hasn't worked since before I went away. Hopefuly MP will have my VIM with Moome inserted working again by tomorrow. Its football season and I want my theater to work again.

If not, its switch to digital time for me.

Save the Moome card for me..

Very constructive post.
post #44 of 514
Mark,

Your NDA has expired. Tell us more about the Radiance??
post #45 of 514
Nice try. My Radiance is back at Lumagen getting some hardware mod necessary for audio. Personally I don't use the Radiance for audio. Most of the features you would like to know about are not yet enabled. No test patterns, noise reduction, yada yada. I think non beta is still 2 months out.
post #46 of 514
I seriously think the NDA was announced as expired prior to CEDIA. Am I wrong on this??

I don't know. I'll call Lumagen tomorrow and ask. I did see JRP at the show and he didn't say anything like that to me.

Dear Mark;

I am in LA this week, attending a conference. Of course I forgot my cell phone, so I am telling you in this post what I would have told you if I had called like you asked.

That you for the use of the Radiance. I assume my NDA is still valid. I would like to try a grand experiment. A Blu-ray player, fed through the Radiance to the DVX-8022 then onto the pair of Moome HD VIMs already installed in the projectors, versus my HTPC, with dual HD DVD and Blu-ray drives, fed directly into the DVX-8022. See who produces the better picher. MP's money is on the player/scalar combination. I'm not so sure, but I am willing to go whichever way my eyes tell me to go. BTW, both paths will go through the Moome DVI/DVI repeater, to melt away that nasty HDCP. Should be an interesting comparison. By the end of this weekend, the foundation should be laid to actually be able to see the differences on the SMX screen.

Anybody else who needs to get a hold of me this week, either post here, or PM me.

Oh, the Meet will extend into Sunday, only because Cliff and Clarence don't go to bed until really really late.

And, double oh. Curt Palme, are you actually gonna make it this time, to see what the MP mod fuss is really all about? If you do come, you will see with your very own eyes a 12 foot wide image that will knock your socks off. You will be wanting to add a new section on your Web Site on reference Home Theaters.

Dear Terry and Galen;

Please, please, please come to the October Meet. It will be worth your time. You guys were such a monsterous help in the spring, I really want you to see what the spring image should have looked like. Tantalizing hints of what is to come were created by MP this past weekend.

Yep, and they are looking great.
post #53 of 514
William i have never met any of the guys here but would love to. I am on the fence right now deciding to blend or not to blend! if i can get away that weekend i'd love to make it for the meet. This will help me also decide on what to get first, the mp mods or a blend unit! It will be almost a year since I have gotten into CRT and am so glad i found this forum!

JRP made the following post on 8/30
in post #1039

http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...9#post11468029

I was wrong it is a partial release.

---------------------------------------------
"I am going to partially release Beta users from the NDA. I was going to do this at CEDIA, but since that is only a few days away I will go ahead and do it now. So, here are the changes to the NDA:

- RadianceXD Beta users can now publicly comment on video quality, and the general usability/reliability of the RadianceXD software. Please make sure to note that the comments relate to Beta software. It would also be good to reference the Beta release date in the text so it can more easily stay with the comments over time.

- Please no "lists" of missing features. Of course some of this will come out with the video quality comments, and since we post the new features with each release on our website, people will be able to follow our progress there.

- Bug reports need to be posted on the closed Beta forum, which is still under NDA or by email/phone with Lumagen.

- Audio is still under NDA until we get it closer to complete".
post #60 of 514
Thanks. Now I don't have to call.

Its reliable. Always works. Typical new Gennum deinterlacing of video. Video deinterlacing is much better than last generation Lumagens particularly of 480i. 1080i deinterlacing is better but not by as large a margin. Scaling after video 480i deinterlacing is much better than other Gennum based processors. Really sharp because of no ringing. Much prefer it to the DVDO scaling.

I have been watching film only on my Pioneer 94 Blu Ray. My projector will not work at 24. So I have been watching it at 1080p 60 straight out of the Blu Ray or into the Lumagen at 24 or 60 and out at 60. Frankly at this point and with limited features I see little difference whether inputting 24 or 60 into the Lumagen. Rememer only 60 out.

It is impossible to do a quality set up of my CRT without test patterns generated by the processor. The processor is really the "source" for my CRT. I am limited at present to using internal (in my projector) test patterns at the wrong frequencies or traditional over the air or DVD test patterns. No real HD test patterns. So I really can't comment on my ultimate results since I really can't do a proper set up, yet.
