Yep, this thing has been nothing but trouble right from the start. First I had to mount it on the ceiling, then put up a screen. It's really irritating that something like this can make it to market.
I've tried to attach a picture of it running in our HT on the 105"x59" custom built ($50) screen.
Seriously, the only thing I've seen that isn't perfect is a bit of lip (un)sync when watching cable tv, and possibly a bit of that from the interlaced feed from the old DVD player. With the progressive input from the DVD player and nice component video cables it's just amazing.
John, you're welcome to drop by and check it out sometime- not quite as nice are your theater, but it works for me!
hey nice screen shot...Step...looks great...Tony I have not done a really methodical a/b comparison of YUV to progressive feeds...it looks good either way...but I will revisit the issue over the weekend..I had a friend come over to my barn here and then he calls me and asks if he can borrow it for the Texas Vs A&M game....well I said yes....why not...what's the point of having the stuff if you can;t share it....
Happy to oblige. I think I figured out the right way to post these.
This first one is the 9000 mounted. The only odd characteristic of the room s that it's a walkout basement, so it has the ventilation ducts running in a section of drop-ceiling. The projector is mounted right behind the drop, projecting under it to the front wall. To get it to fire under the drop, I had to add a few inches to the mounting bracket, so I cut 3 18" long 2x6 board pieces and mounted those to the ceiling first.
This one is a comparison of the old 50" 4:3 screen to the new one. It's a full-size digital piano over on the side. I know I need to get something to put the center channel on. And John, these are the 'fancy' red sofas we need to get rid of! (They're really uncomfortable after about an hour.)
