Next, did you turn on the projector and immediately take photos? Or did you let it warm up an hour first? Sometimes red convergence can be off as the projector warms up.
You really need to learn to do some simple things without a professional
And btw, I woudlnt bother upgrading the panasonic. If you want to get anything, get a lumagen or wait for envy instead. You can't compare the static meta based tone mapping to the dynamic tone mapping of these devices.
Mark, I did see the PM you sent and I will take a look and see what's-up with that.
And I will be damn sure the RS4500 is on for hours before looking buddy.
I appreciate your information.

Chuck, Nope, no Atmos here buddy.
I have not totally given up on adding it at sometime in the future but not right now.
I need more CASH on hand for that to take place and right now I'm not comfortable with doing that.

That might go some ways help get an idea of what's happening here with the colours.
Nope, just the Samsung cellphones on this end.
No-Worries though as I am going to eventually going to get this situation totally under control once again.
I think it will be months but it will happen.
I'm going to keep my hands/fingers off the settings so that when Chad B does come he can see for himself where all settings are.
Meanwhile it's not so bad that it's apparent to either Cathy or me so I can wait for Chad B.

I could NOT go back to using the UB9000 and its "Static" Tone Mapping..
Woofer, in my case I am going to go with the new Panasonic UB9000.
Even if I had and was willing to spend what the Lumagen sells for I'm not going there.
I know I'm not even remotely capable of tuning the Lumagen and here where I am I do-not know of any really qualified A/V Shop that can.
Sometimes money is not the deciding factor in one's decisions.
There have been cars over the years that I really-really liked and in-fact wanted but ..........
No local dealers and certainly no local support so I've never gone down that path.
Same-thing to me with the Lumagen it seems to be the way to go if ???
You are fortunate enough to have support where you live .........

About to test the latest Lumagen DTM firmware. If I get enough time I should be able to have a bit of an assessment of how it's currently comparing to MadVR.
I am as I said above going to add the UB9000 and if it's a positive enhancement to the picture, great, if not so be it guys.
I can afford to do the UB9000 and once it's set-up it's not something that constantly needs additional refinement.
I like and prefer simple operation to the Home Theater.
Example, pick-up the right remote and fire-up the system and sit my old butt down and enjoy my system.
I'm not one of the gang that just loves fiddling with their Home Theater components.
I do applaud those on AVS that have the talent to calibrate their H/T systems ............
