Hey all...

Wondered if any of you would know where I can get a firmware upgrade (ie. the program) to download into my rather old LP550 which has the most abyssmal scaler imaginable! Try tearing on nearly everything that moves :(


I think - though I am not sure - that the scaler problem was solved in later models with a firmware upgrade.


My current version is 1.31


Can anyone assist here? Infocus are ignoring me :(


Thanks

Infocus has downloads on their web site, drill into support on http://www.infocus.com


I checked and, unfortunately, do not find anything for the LP550. You might send them an email, they are pretty good about responding.

They replied yesterday - after I sent a reminder email.


Like you said, there is no firmware upgrade for this projector unfortunatly :(


I am pursuing the route that the problem is so bad that they would have had lots of complaints with the scaler problem that they would have issued a fix already, otherwise there is something wrong with the scaler... maybe its filter capacitors have died?


I hope that they can help me with this one...


Thanks

Recieved a reply back from Infocus again...


"Unfortunately, the 550 is a very old unit, and the video quality is

definitely not up to today's standards. The image that you're seeing is

about as good as it's going to get, and there's nothing we can do (in

addition to what you've already done) to improve it. I would definitely not

recommend purchasing an external scaler, because I doubt it would help at

all. "


What? Why no external scaler... should this be read as... the 550 is old and decrepid! Don't use a scaler or you will be happy with the image.. buy a new projector from us :)


Or is this just me being cynical :)


NAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!


Cheers
