Honestly, why do you cape for T-Bone anyway? I feel like maybe he PM'd you or something to back him up as a friend in all the disagreements he gets into, but that's really unfair to you if that's the case. I honestly can't remember many issues with you misunderstanding something I posted, or giving completely inaccurate advice, but T-Bone seems to misunderstand half the comments I write. It's like going to a bar with a friend every night who can't help trip on own shoelaces every every other night, fall onto someone's girlfriend's lap, and create a bar fight that is nothing but bad for their friend.1. You spelled "curvature" wrong.
2. T-Bone said "If you take a Band-Aid that's 4 in Long and wrap it around the sides of a Coke can... Is the Band-Aid still 4 in long? It is. The linear length of your curved screen does not change." to which you said "Wasn't your first response to tell me that the curve is the same distance as the straight line because of the coke can and the bandaid?" - are you even reading people's responses? T-Bone's response was completely correct, your response was a complete misinterpretation of what he said.
3. T-Bone said "Adjust the zoom, lens shift if needed, and focus of the projectors." to which you replied "Your advice is to adjust zoom, lens shift, and focus of two projectors every time" - LOL, another complete misinterpretation; he wasn't giving you advice...he was saying this is what you'll HAVE to do when switching between the screens, and I agree. If you think you'll be able to align projectors perfectly between two screens that sit at different distances from the projector, you're completely deluding yourself.
You seem to come on here to be affirmed, not to be informed.
You have a massive arrogance about the way you post. Yeah, I said "arrogance". I'm sure it's unintentional. But you seem to think other people's time is less valuable than yours, so you saddle the forum with doing a bunch of the work for you, taking time of their days to read and answer these massive tomes you write. Do some of the work for yourself. You come across as massively entitled.
I wish you would spend a lot less time writing novels to people who disagree with you, and work on your home theater instead of spending so much time typing.
How many times do you keep going out with that friend? In just this thread alone, there have been so many misunderstandings, untrue claims, and bad advice, and almost all of them from him.
False claim #1: my pulldown screen has no bearing on my potential curved screen size calculation. It does and I explained why three times and he still misses it.
False claim #2: That bringing up this detail changed my original query in the original post. It didn't, it was just extra information to explain to someone why I made the query. The query never changed.
False assumption #3: Double stacking projectors for passive 3D provides double the brightness of just having one of those projectors with active 3D. No one can confirm 100% but most say it doesn't because it's still only one projector per eye.
False assumption #4: Active glasses lose less light than passive glasses. Generally they lose more.
False claim #5: Using two separate screens without re-zooming projectors won't work (that one's yours but it's the only one).
False assumption #6: My projector is probably defective because in only 3 hours of testing with 1 source there is motion smear.
False claim #7: A curved line between two points is the same distance as a straight line.
False example #8: The example he used to "prove" this of wrapping a bandaid around a coke can. Putting a bandaid around a coke can in a circle is connecting a curved line to meet at the same point, not at two different points like a curved screen. Whoops!!! But I misspelled a word so you're definitely caping for the right side in this disagreement, definitely! 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
False claim #9: That anamorphic lenses correct pincushion distortion. As far as I know, they cause it.
False claim #10: Saying I ignored advice of avs forum members, and think I know better than people with more experience on avs forum, because of the projectors I bought. They were recommended by people on avs forum!!!
That's ten false claims by you guys, nine from him one from you, in my thread, completely derailing it. And you guys have like 100 times more experience with HT than I do, so why am I the one correcting you guys? Because I'm actually humble enough to ask questions when I don't know the answer to something, instead of pretending I already know the answer. That way, I learn.
TEN false claims. In one thread. Which is only like 1 or 2 pages long I think. Ten!!!!! And there may even be more, I didn't reread all the posts. So if you want to call me arrogant, or you get some sort of feeling like I'm looking down on you guys, no, I'm not looking down on you guys, or other posters. When I repeatedly say 5+5 = 10, and the same posters keep disrupting my thread to tell me that 5+5 = 20, and that I only think 5+5 = 10 because I don't listen to people with more experience than me, just ask yourself, how would you react? Would you look up to someone who thinks 5+5 = 20 and thinks then constantly badgers you when you politely mind your business and go on with your plans back in reality where 5+5 = 10?
I don't look down on you guys at all. On certain subjects, you both know your stuff, and have provided educational and very valuable posts in the past, that I am very grateful about! But with T-Bone in particular, there have also been too many misread paragraphs and incorrect assertions for me to even count, and those have been interspersed with an extremely condescending attitude, insults, and so on. Then when I've asked him to stop, and pointed these things out, he's accused me of exactly what he's done, just as you did here calling me arrogant. Oldest trick in the book. But it's been done so much, I wonder, maybe you guys actually believe I'm the one doing all this, not you guys?
So I don't want to embarrass anyone, but this needs to stop, so I'm making this post. Ten false claims (or more) in one thread should be irrefutable. I'm still learning about this stuff so maybe I got one wrong, it doesn't matter, there are probably more that he made that I didn't go back and check. Whether it's nine, whether it's fifteen, it doesn't matter. That's too many times to be wrong in one thread, especially when every time you are wrong, I get blamed for it. I especially made the list for you fatheron so you can see what you keep defending, going to bat for, and blaming me for. It doesn't get any more crystal clear than this. If you keep it up, that just proves without any doubt what it really is, and that would be exactly what you accused me of. The word starts with A and ends with T. Or try a three letter word that starts with e and ends with o. Think Guardians of the Galaxy 2. After this post, you should never wonder again, ever, who to defend any time T-Bone starts trying to hijack another one of my posts. It doesn't get any more clear.
Now please, let me topic get back on topic. Does anyone know for sure whether curved screens are measurements are done straight from horizontal border to horizontal border, or along the curve?
