Thanks a ton for this, unfortunately it only works when the input is 1080p/24Hz.

 

Is there no way to somehow force it to do 6x for say 1080p/60Hz or other inputs is there? (I can force it to 1080p/24Hz through my receiver but I would prefer to keep things at their native resolution if possible)

i am not understanding how to use that. Here is my dimensions:

projection distance: 14.5 ft
screen size: 106 inches

the projector is on a shelf that is about 10 feet high and the center of the projector lens is aimed at at the upper part of the screen…

can anyone give me any feedback whether the projector will work with the lens shift it has? i had an epson 8700ub that worked without any problems..

Your throw distance is fine. However, you'll have to lower your projector (which would have to lie upside down on your shelf) unless you want the botton of your screen to be 4' from the floor.

can anyone guide me in the right direction with this projector?

the shelf is exactly 7 feet high, at a 14 feet throw distance and the screen is 106 inches and it is exactly 34 inches from the floor..
i cant seem to understand WHERE AND HOW the projector needs to be in order to aim correctly? the calculator is super confusing.
also, can the projector be upside down on a shelft or perhaps strapped down to a shelf? i really cant drill holes in my ceiling to mount it there..
ANY help would be appreciated..

You would need an 8'-4" ceiling to project onto a 106" screen that is 34" from the floor. This projector just has a substantial offset requiring a fairly high ceiling. It also needs to be upside down on a shelf if projecting "down". You can place it right-side up, but only when projecting "up" from a low table.

In a low ceiling room, you would have to tilt the projector up and tilt the top of the screen into the room to make it work.

Im used to LCD so dlp is new to me. Do you think this proj. gives me as rainbow free picture as it can be

What is current owners' take on every reviewer's comments that MITSUBISHI HC7900DW is very "dim" compared to other modern projectors? If I were to consider it for use with my 120" 1.2gain screen in light controlled room, what would be your advice? I don't like blindingly bright picture but still I would not want it to be such that I find it starving for more light. Any and all comments would be appreciated.

THANKS!

Any comment on that im considering hc7900DW over good deal on optoma HD82 factory refurbished models.
i can get two HD82 refurbished @ 1700 Euros compared to one HC7900DW @ 1400 Euros (that makes a whoping 2800 for a pair).
Still doing the passive setup......

How does 3D glasses work on this projector?
My understanding is that any DLP Link glasses will work, is that right?
If not, what kind of glasses does this projector need? IR? RF?

Also, is an emitter needed for this projector? Or, will DLP Link glasses work without an emitter?

Thanks

Does this projector have a standard VESA 3D port for the emitter or does it need the Mitts emitter only. If so should any universal 3D emitter work with compatible glasses, I noticed a thread stating that PS3 glasses work.

Hi Kandyman,
can you comment on RBE during Bluray play back with 1080p/24fps and 6x color wheel speed setting?

nphan my wife still sees rbe with 1080p/24fps 6x color wheel. On dark scenes with brighter areas like tron for example she cant watch more than a few minutes. The picture is fantastic though just a shame that my wife is so rbe sensitive

How does the Lens Shift affect this? Can it be shelf mounted even with the top of the screen?
Does it have the VESA 3d sync input that can be used with various 3D emitters?
How does it compare to the Benq W7000?
Does it do 3D at 120hz or 144hz?

Hey Everyone,

I just picked up this bad jackson from BB. I'm comming from an old Infocus X1 projector that is 10+ years old so I'm figuring this will be a huge upgrade for me and will hold me off until 4k is more of an option. It's new and not a refurb, so can I just purchase the warrenty through Mitsubishi?

I've been looking around and there isn't all that much info out there for this projector. I was reading through the HC7800 thread, is this projector pretty much identical as far as 3d goes? I saw that there was a conversion option to RF for that projector and I'm thinking this will be the same deal.

Thanks guys!

Friends

Besides PS3 glasses that is reported to be compatible with HC7900, are there any other owners that have used different glasses other than Mitsubishi and Sony?

Thanks

I'm going to try using these:

http://www.amazon.com/EStar-America-ESG6000-RF-3D-Glasses/dp/B00D341DUQ/ref=pd_cp_e_2

My projector doesn't get delivered for a few days. If you check out the HC7800 thread, there is an easy modification to the 3d emitter cable that comes with the projector. I'm assuming it will work with this projector as it is already working with the HC8000.
