I need some suggestions.. I finally got my replacement HS10.. and after using it for 10+ hours I am enjoying it. Movies look great.. However, while watching TV I keep noticining that people's skin (especially faces) seem very very bright.. to the point where the image just looks burned out.


I havn't yet figured out which setting to change to fix this problem.. (Could it be something in one of those fun hidden menus?) (Things also seem a bit on the red side.. but I can live with that.. it's the over exposed image that is annoying me.)


Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Cinema filter is on, it is NOT in dynamic mode.. (it's in a cinema mode that I calibrated off of the THX DVD.)


It's being shown on a gray bed sheet.. (not the best screen.. but it looks great for movies..)


I just can't figure out why things like my local news and some TV shows just look burned out.. I play w/ the contrast and brightness and it doesn't really seem to do anything..


Thanx,

Mark

I wouldn't rely on analog NTSC material (local news or standard def. tv shows) to judge the picture quality of the HS10. Analog tv (whether cable or OTA or satellite) doesn't look that good blown up to 7 or 8' wide.


If movies on DVD look good, then it's probably the source material that's the problem, and not some setting in your projector.

You would need to upgrade to either Digital Cable or Satellite Dish feed to get a better TV picture on the HS10. All analog signals are only designed for small TV's 36" is even pushing it sometimes. This applies not only to projectors, but also projection TV's... In the stores, they never show you what analog TV looks like on them, only a recorded HDTV signal.... There is a reason...

Could also be the connections since your analog feed is going through a different connector and wire than your DVD feed. Granted, this is an unlikely source of the problem.

my setup:


pioneer DVL-919

Hughes DirecTV TiVo


Both connected to a Pioneer VSX-49TXi A/V Receiver


Both S-Video and Component ouputs of the Receiver go to the HS10.


My local TV (CBS, NBC, ABC, etc) all come over the DirectTV feed. On my (MUCH smaller) CRT TV I don't have that over-exposed/burned in look.


I have put the projector in Normal through mode (results in a much smaller picture of course) and it has the same look. It's as if the projector's brightness is cranked.. but it's only set to about 30.


Anyway, like I said it's really bugging me and I can't figure out "why".
