Have a g70, HDFury2 card, Denon 3808 and PS3. When I watch a blu ray the screen looks horrible, when I go into the PS3 and change the setting for BD 1080p 24Hz output to off everything works fine. Does this mean I am not watching blu rays in 1080p? Does it mean I am watching 1080i? Please help, I know I have read other threads where people are saying a g70 cannot resolve a 1080p image. Just wondering if I need to move to the g90? I appreciate all help.

The G70 or any CRT projector cannot display 24p as it is to low of refresh rate

this is where A scaler or PC comes in, and the way most do it around here for smooth Blu-Ray playback..



1080p 24 out > to Scaler output custom 1920x817p @48(2:2) /72Hz (3:3)


If you cant perform the above Set up the G70 for 1080i as 1080p @60Hz is to much for A G70


Cheers...

I am one of the people who run my G70 @ 1080p 60Hz. It will not fully resolve 1080p, that is absolutely true. But it will sync, no problem, and with careful setup you will get a stunning picture. The finest details will be lacking. I can't tolerate 1080i scan lines, so I also have setup 720p 60, which is well within the capabilities of the G70. I actually prefer 1080p 60 to 720p 60on the G70.


The method cinema mad suggests is clearly the best. It has the advantage of no judder due to having the vertical be an interger multiple of 24 fps, so no judder - a beautifully smooth picture. This is how I run my HTPC. I hesitate to buy a scaler for a projector that I may be replacing soon, so I'm very happy running the G70 at 1080p 60.


You can check on what the player is sending your G70 by going to Menu>Input Info on the G70. For 1080p 60, Fh=67.4 kHz, and Fv=60.0 Hz. These numbers may vary a bit, 60.0 could be 59.9, etc., but you get the idea.


A G90 will fully resolve 1080p. A perfectly focused and setup G70 will approach 900 lines. 817 lines is realistic number for the G70.


btw, I think this whole 'resolves 1080p' thing is way overblown. There are hundreds of lousy projectors that fully resolve 1080p and in the process create an unwatchable, horrible picture.

Yep Craig(CIR) is the man that provided most of us the idea to run the above AAR solution

with our highend projectors thus conserving our precious limited Bandwidth & providing A little headroom
