Hey guys,


I read to rid the macrovision effect on the 1031q just switch from agc to man. I also remember that it seems you lose brightness going from agc to man. Heres my question, it seems that while on man the brightness pulsates. I left top gun paused and about every 10 seconds the brightness would come and go. I then flipped the picture back to Agc and it seemed alittle dim but did not pulsate. Seems totally opposite of eboytoyz site. Any answers for that one?


Thanks

The switch could be labeled wrong. Regardless, the AGC is off when it does not pulsate.

I have solved these problems by *Cough* firmware hacking my DVD player instead.

As Marc states.


AGC is off when the image is stable. I wouldnt worry about brigtness loss because if your perminantly set up that way you shoud calibrate the projector for that input as far as color, tint, greyscale and G2 settigns for a killer image. Obviously the RGB input will yeald the best overall picture on these machines.


As I have had my new(er) 1031Q for almost a year and have this one 100% calibrated it still amases me as to how amasing the picture looks. LAWNMOWER MAN was just on and the scene where there playing the VR game looked amasing on my screen. I almost crapped my pants :)


I may be in doign a deal to get a NEC for free but I am really not too sure at that point that I will install the NEC so fast. I will really need to set it up and see how much of an improvment it is over a 1031Q. I am so impressed with these small CRT projectors!

As Marc stated, the agc is off when the image is not flickering.


Dont worry about a loss of brightness because if this is the input and way you plan on using the 1031Q then you need to do a complete color balance, tint, and greyscale set up to get the most out of the image.


Of course the RGB inputs are the best way to get full advantage of these machines as they throw an amasing image with a doubler. If you think it looks good with composit youll be blown away with a line doubled picture.


By the way the AGC switch has no effect when and if you decide to use the RGB inputs, just so you know!
