Looks like your set. The only thing I would suggest is that you get a calibration disc such as Avia or Video Essentials, if you don't already have one. Enjoy!!


Now, you don't really want us to suggest upgrades do you? We could easily send you to bankruptcy court. :D

thanks for the kind words, i have the avia setup disc.


the upgrades i had in mind were small ones that all you experienced home theater uses may have noticed.


at least i'm going in the right direction


thanks

Even with monty tubes, I would run the Quadscan in line tripling mode rather than quadrupling. Try both, but I thik you'll be sharper in tripling mode.


For about $200, you could get an Extron 202 booster to bring the Quad signal output up a bit. It'll punch up the image a bit.

Thanks Curt


could you please tell me the best place to purchase an extron 202 for $200, as in the uk one place is selling them for £ 1000 about $ 1400.


thanks

Mount the PJ on the ceiling. It'll be right against the back wall so you'll have to sit beside it. This'll give you only 2 good seats, if you put 4 seats in, the 2 front will be too close.


My 2 cents
