For many the best feature they could add would be a darker/lighter feature for blacks.
This way all the HT1000 owners could take advantage of the projectors perfect OTB grayscale.
Whatever standard they come up with for transmitting DVI. I hope for the love of god that they stick with it.
With DVI we should NEVER have to touch a brightness and contrast control again. The signalling should be clear as to what is black and what is white. Unfortunately, with computer graphics signaling is from 0 to 255 (which uses the full 8 bits and I prefer) but video DVI is 16 to 235.
The D1 is outputting correctly. From your comment it sounds like the HT1000 doesn't have an adjustment for brightness and contrast. If it were to have one, when using the D1 you would lower the brightness and raise the contrast.
But, regardless, the most important thing is that we shouldn't have to touch brightness and contrast controls with DVI signaling. Black and white values should always be consistant values. Since computers have had their 0-255 standard in place for well over 20 years I would hope that the video world would just join suit. (beside for some reason many video engineers who master DVD's don't seem to know that 16 is black and 235 is white anyways. I think it would be easier for them to remember 0 is black and 255 is white)
This is my biggest pet peave. The biggest problem most displays at electronics stores, trade show and people's homes have is that the brightness and contrast are set wrong usually with the whites and blacks both crushed. With analog signaling this can
happen unintentually, but with digital signaling it should never
happen unless the end user deliberately wants to mess-up the image on their sets.
Lets pray they get it right with HDMI.
