Epson 5040UB projector, Denon 6300, 7.1.4 setup, M&K THX speakers and SVS subwoofer
I called them two days ago and my new projector will be here tomorrow.If you let them authorize your card to cross-ship, it's usually only 3 business days for shipping, right? I was gearing up to start the process with my 4000, but the replacement bulb fixed it. Now I'm just waiting for run-in time before I have the ISF come out and re-check everything with the new bulb.
That makes almost no sense why that would help, but I'll try it.I asked the same question a month or two back. The response I got was basically you have to "sneak up" on your lens position when setting it. Make slow, small movements in a single direction and if you over-shoot, back up and approach it from that same direction slowly again. This approach hasn't made mine 100% perfect at finding it every time it's recalled, but it has got it 95% of the way there.
Do the competing JVCs and Sonys with this feature also work oddly like this?If you're making large/fast movements and stopping quickly, it's apparently more difficult for the included circuitry to exactly index the point you're stopping it. If you're adjusting in multiple directions, there seems to be some play in the motor, gearing, belts, etc. that has to be taken up before it can again accurately index the location. It isn't super intuitive at first glance, but after listening to how the mechanism sounds during large movements vs. smaller movements and reversal of direction I can justify it in my head to a certain degree... but I'm just an Aerospace Engineer, so what do I know?
To manually calibrate a projector for a specific source, you would display a calibration pattern from that source, and measure the projector’s output using a meter connected to the PC.has anyone calibrated their 5040ub with a Spyder X Elite? I'm wonder how that would work. Because you would have to I guess get offsets from the software to plug into your projector, if you were using it on any other input than PC.
Thanks. So I would have to manually adjust it with my eyes on a PC? Or is there software that will tell me the offsets to use to get it to "correct" color and contrast?To manually calibrate a projector for a specific source, you would display a calibration pattern from that source, and measure the projector’s output using a meter connected to the PC.
yes, but I don't know how it works. I would want to change the settings on my 5040, but not sure how I can do that with the software. Seems like HCFR is what people use - I will have to check out some guides on it. I'm used to Spyder auto calibration the monitor it's hooked to and adjusting itself, rather than me changing settings through a menu.I don’t understand your question. Aren’t you already looking at HCFR?
