The projector is native 16:9 so unless you have content that is formatted in 2:40 (still in a 16:9 container ) you can't fill the a 2:40 screen. You need to use what's called the zoom method to achieve the CIH solution. First make sure you have a square picture with no trapezoids and this is done using the roll, pitch and yaw of the projector mount. Use lens shift and zoom to fill a 16:9 image filling top and bottom of your screen with black bars even on each side. I would be glade to call you just setup a time.I know a lot of people are into 4K and possibly 8K I’m still dealing with an older projector and just getting it setup
Anyone have a lot of experience with the Panasonic AE 8000 willing to speak to a newbie who can’t seem to get the image to fit on his screen. I’m not new to home theater but projectors. I wouldn’t know where to begin to start typing so I would prefer someone who is willing to talk to me I’m just gonna throw this out there because everyone has always been great to me my phone number 636-795-9920feel free to call it may be a very simple issue.
I have a 125 inch width 2.37:1 screen projecting from 16.9 feet away as soon as I make the left and right side of the screen fit I cannot see my menu anymore it is below the bottom of the screen. Soon as I pull up the bottom of the screen my left and right side have a 5 inch gap and at the top about 3 inch gap. Thank you ahead of time for any responses or calls..
I posted this yesterday on the Panasonic Ae8000 thread, but not a lot of traffic over there obviously because it’s practically obsolete unit for most people.
however I did have a response earlier before I got the screen saying I need to do a constant image height. CIH, Even sent a video but I do not know how to achieve that. That acronym or the words are not even in my manual.
