Anyone ever converged an NEC XG-110 with a 16:9 screen?


How do you go about doing that?


Wouldn't you have a lot of overscan on the top and bottom of the screen?


Did I make a bad discussion buying a 16:9 screen?

Doug,


Actually that's a pretty common setup. The first question I need to ask is do you have the setup guide? If not you can download from:

Snaggs Projector Reference


Download the XG1351 docs.


In short, you can use the picture controls to set the size and position of the image.

Yes, that would be the preferred way to do it. Then you tell your scaler or HTPC that the screen is 16:9 in shape and let the scaler switch aspect ratios and zoom. That way you only need to set up one convergence memory for both 4:3 and 16:9 enhanced material.


Figure on about 720 scan lines for a 16:9 screen and a XG110 when you set up your scaler or HTPC.

Doug, I have the same projector and I don't have any luck at squeezing a 4:3 image onto the 16:9 screen. When I use the amplitude to do the squeezing I get some wrap around problems and odd shaped lines at the bottom of my image.

So far the only thing I've been able to do is display 4:3 from my computer to the screen and then Blank the edges.

I am interested to hear how your quadscan works at squeezing the image.

I'm kind of a Newbie to this CRT/Setup thing but I've had a lot of help on this forum and from a local forum member in setup. If you have any questions regarding basic setup let me know, I'm gettin' better at it:D

I found my answer at

http://www.focusinfo.com/support/manuals/QSAspect.pdf


"If your display is native 16:9, and you are projecting on a 16:9 screen, the Quadscan should be set for 16:9 output. A widescreen movie should fill the screen assuming that the movie is also 16:9 or 1.78:1. If the movie is wider, for example 2.35:1, you will see some black area on top and bottom of the screen due to the image being wider and shorter than 16:9. If you are viewing a 4:3 image, you will see black bars on the right and left sides of the image, because a 4:3 image is not wide enough to fill the screen."
