Here is what I did.


Set VB50 to 640x480 and 60hz refresh.


Set AE100 to pc priority= normal.

Go to position menu.

'Auto setup' does not set it correctly, at least not on mine.

Hit the 'menu' button on the VB50, you will see slight fuzyness on some of the letters.(menu will only stay on for about 5 sec. so you have to keep hitting button)

First adjust 'Dot Clock' on AE100 until all the letters on the VB50 menu look perfect. (you have to look close!)

Then adjust 'h-pos.' and 'v-pos.' until you are not loosing any of the picture top, bottom, left or right.

'clock phase' should not make any difference once you have everything pixel perfect. Just leave at zero.


Here are my final settings for the AE100. May or may not work for you.

H-pos. +6

V-pos. +1

DotClock -6

Clockphase 0


If you have any light grey pixels around the white letters on the VB50 menu

you don't have it yet. This means the AE100 is scaling the image slightly and you don't have perfect 1:1 pixel transfer.

That sounds very encouraging. Are you running everthing through the VGA port? DVD via VB50 passthrough and transcoder? Are your "TV" settings compatible with DVD playback with priority=wide?


My new AE100 s/b here in a few days and I would like to watch TV with it as well. I guess my real question is will the adjustments you made to enhance TV watch degrade Prog DVD when all share the same port?


If so...I guess it wouldn't be too much off a hassle to change the settings...

ya have to go from normal to wide for DVD anyway (or so I have culled from this forum)


Anyway...sounds encouraging for baseball.


Thanks for sharing coolmo.

Now that I look at some settings posted earlier by Li On, yours are quite similar to his. Looks like different priority settings cannot have their own "sub settings", or maybe they can...I'll shut up now and just wait for mine to show up so I can see for myself.


Li On ... (should probably be considered de jour)


AE100 setting values (16x9 anamorphic DVD):


Picture:

Picture Mode: Normal

Bright: -18

Contrast: +15

Sharpness: 0

Color Temp: Warm

W-BAL R: +8

W-BAL B: +16

Signal Mode: WIDE480


Position:

H-Posi: -8

V-Posi: +19

Dot CLK: -4

CLK PHASE: 0


Option:

PC Priority: WIDE


For 4:3/Letterbox, all values as above except:

Position:

I am running my DVD player through the component input.

I tried running DVD S-video through the VB50, but it didn't even compare to the progressive component.

VGA pass through on the VB50 should work fine.

OK, 'great' is probably too strong of a word. 'Good' or 'OK' is probably better.


I wonder if this would help video game systems like Playstation 2 when connected through the VB50. I don't have one to try.
