    Hi there I have a fairly old - though lightly used Optoma HD20. We used to drive this with a Sony all in one type cinema system and a 5m HDMI 2.2 cable. We recently renovated the room and swapped out the Sony for a Yamaha AVR YAY!. It connects via the same 5m HDMI cable that we had plugged in...

    Hello, all. I've had this projector since 2009, and its never given me a problem. A few days ago the picture and lamp turned off while watching a show, and the fan turned on and initiated the "cooling down" phase. (Honestly, I'm not sure how many hours are on the bulb, but i'd guess more than...

    I just watched a video, on the new Christie Duo projection system http://www.christiedigital.com/en-us/cinema/cinema-solutions-case-studies/christie-videos/Pages/Hoyts-Cinema.aspx they just installed two 30k+ lumen projectors in a cinema with a 90 foot wide screen, what I find interesting is...

     I just got an email from a potential new client that has a Optoma HD20.  This is what it said, "Optoma HD20 projector has a black spot in the middle of the picture. Lamp was replaced in June 2013 as was color wheel. Lamp comes on and so does fan."  Anyone have an idea of what would cause...
  5. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    I have an Optoma HD20 and over the past 6 months I have been getting a shiny tone primarily noted when skin is projected. If the contrast is dialed way down, it goes away however the picture is then unacceptable. In addition, areas of the picture that are white are very reflective and yellow...

    I originally posted this in the Dedicated Theater Builder forum, but have realized that they are a bit out of my league, and my true brethren are in this forum, so here it is, folks... Well, after many many years of having a pretty [email protected]$$ surround system in my living room, a couple years ago...
  7. Rear Projection Units
     So, after a little under a year, my OptomaHD finally gave a warning that the bulb is going to die. Given that I use it 12-16 hours a day most days, this isn't surprising, but now it's time to replace the lamp. From what I read on Amazon, there seems to be an issue with counterfeit bulbs, so my...

    I need a recommendation on a projector. I don't even know what questions to ask. A basic model I guess. I just want to watch movies and football occasionally. Does the size of the screen dictate the projection need?

    Hey this is my first post. I've had the optoma hd20 for almost 2 years, and a little while ago I noticed a yellowish spot in the top of the screen. I thought it was maybe the bulb so I replaced it and I still have the yellow spot. What the heck is it?

    I have 120 in elite screen Cinewhite 1.1 gain with my Optoma HD20 projector. My walls are white and so is my ceiling. The top of the screen is only about 8-10 in from the ceiling how much do you think this hurts my setup taking away from the quality of the picture

     HELP!   I have an Optoma HD20 projector in my media room in which I run all of my devices through a Bose Lifestyle system.  I have one HDMI cord going from the Bose to the projector.   Although I am using an HDMI cord, the whole system works just fine as long as I am using 480 resolution...

    So, right now, I have an Optoma HD131Xe... I really like this projector and it hits the mark with all of my requests in my title with the exception of it's color wheel. I definitely notice rainbows often with this projector, more often when my room is darker or during high contrast scenes. I...

     I am out of ideas, and I don't know if this is something I can fix on my own or if I'll have to take it somewhere.     It looks like the unit is not recognizing HDMI input anymore with one exception.   I have a Blu Ray player and an XBOX 360 going into a Sony receiver and then out to the...

    I just replaced the color wheel on my optoma hd20 but now when I turn it on the color tint is off. Obviously it has something to do with the color wheel since I just installed it but wondering if anyone has any experience with this. Do you think the color wheel just needs to be cleaned? Just...
