Hi all

I have a 54x96"(110" diag 16:9)Screen I am using the

ISCAN in Component mode with pins 13+14 removed so I maintain the aspect controll and a JVC 723 dvd player set to 16:9 My question is Can

I just select the cinema mode and fill my entire

screen by increasing the throw distance? Or is the projector

dumping DMD mirrors and using only a small portion of them

in the Cinema mode? I thought that if I used the Cinema

Mode filled my screen with a 1:78:1 image and then made

a Halo blocker for the extra ligt spilling off the screen I would be all set.I am now having second thoughts about this

method,because when I used the Halo blocker it shure looks as though it is covering alot of the lense surface.

Am I way off base here? I want to set this up for

widescreen DVD useage only

Thanks Ray

Ray,


I am running a similar set up: Theta DaViD to Iscan Pro, running in component to the LT150. I currently have a 4:3 screen, but my next screen will be 16:9 since I watch SDTV windowboxed using the Iscan's sqeeze mode. My plan was to order the new screen with several inches of black drop on the sides to neutralize the bright borders. Wouldn't this work better than trying to block it at the lens?

The Cinema mode doesn't affect which pixels are turned off, nor the halo, nor anything like that. All it does it squeeze the incoming image down so that it fits the middle section of the screen.
