Its so user friendly and produces and excellent image out of the box that you don;t have to have a ceremony over it to get it to perform.


Wait? Isn't that a good thing...


ITs very refreshing...

Hi John


What DVD-Player are you using with the Sharp ?

Progressiv or interlaced YUV ?


Thanks


Anthony


Hope I'll have as many problems as you had, when my Sharp XVZ-9000E arrives :D

Dear John


I heard that the interlaced YUV signal in combination with the internal CIVIC scaler was better, than using a progressiv signal.

Have you checked ? If you have checked, what where your impressions ? Why did you choose the progressiv signal over the interlaced ?

I'm asking because I'll be buying a new player and wanted to know if it had to be progressiv or not.


Thanks


Anthony

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....


Regards,

John

Boy you guys know how to make a person envious. Sharp Australia has sold out of the XV-Z9000E and the next batch will arrive in 2 weeks time :( A long wait.....

Spizz,


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.

After mounting it, we checked things out and realized we could raise it by 1 board, so this shot shows it in it's final mounting position.

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.)

This is the shot I previously attached in the post above.

And finally, here's another screen shot.

Hopefully this post looks the way it was intended to with inline images.
