Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem. I am using a quadscan with an NEC 6pg. Using the tv double setting, the screen is filled correctly as you would expect, but scan lines are clearly visible. When I switch to tv triple, the image shrinks to a little over half the screen. I can max out the h/v output and increase it a little, but still not enough to fill the screen or raster. Whats there looks gorgeous. I have just talked to focus tech support, and they want to blame it on the projector. However, I can feed it 720p from my Dish6000 and it fills the screen properly. Am I SOL as focus says? Any help or similar experiences appreciated. Guy

I think triple TV is 720x720 which is why it did not fit the screen. I had the same problem with my QuadScan Pro with my NEC. Use XGA (1024x768) or SVGA (800x600), it should work out better, it did on mine.... BTW, at 1024x768 the scan lines overlapped, softenning the image, 800x600 was sharper but the scan lines were barely visible. Ideally, the 6PG would work best with some in between.

Thanks for responding. Aren't xga and sxga 4x3 formats? I am running a 16x9 screen. The problem was not fitting the screen per say, its a shrinking problem. The tripled image is only about half as wide as my screen. I guess I will try one of those other resolutions and see what happens. The triple just looked so perfect in the space its taking up. Guy

Make sure that your input and output are both set to 16:9, also make sure that your CRT geometry is also 16:9. If the front panel says that it is 16:9 it doesn't actually mean that your triple TV memory is set to 16:9. Switch the output aspect to a different setting than 16:9 then back to 16:9 this will update your memory for Triple TV. Do the same for your input aspect ratio after you have done the output. This will give you a full 16:9.

Thanks FE! The trick with switching output from 16:9 and then back got my PJ to find the right inputslot again! I've had trouble getting it to sync on to the saved inputslot wich worked fine until i reset the Quadscan. Now I'm back on track! It's kind of weird that the Quadscan Pro shows one thing in the display but actually doing something else. I read somewhere that it had to do with the LED-panel not being able to communicate in two directions or something... Is it the same om the Elite?


Also I noticed (again...) that the picture turns a brighter when changing from TRPLTV to DBLTV and then darker when turning back to TRPLTV.

Thanks Shaun. That did the trick. Your tech support guy was not too helpful. Thanks for coming through. Also like Kris, I notice a much darker picture with the triple setting. I am haveing to run my brightness and contrast much higher than I would like, but the picture is overall excellent. This is a great unit for the price. Thanks again, Guy

Each input and output resolution has it's own memory setting. The front panel only indicates what you last chose for a setting not what is in memory for that input/output combination. I know that it is confusing but we packed alot into this product much more than what the original design called for. CenterStage is much more advanced having bi-directional communication with the interface than the Elite or the QS pro, but it's sure a great product for limited budgets, especially with CRT's.

I too had been struggling to make sense of the input/ouptut controls.. many thanks for an excellent and informative post which solved my problem.


I also find that using component inputs I am having to rack up the brightness and contrast on the PJ.I am doing it via the quadscan itself at present - is this the best way or should I restrict such adjustments to the CRT?

I would do this on the QS. Each input has it's own memory so you can't just make your picture adjustments on one input, you have to do it for each input. Once you have doen this it will autosave these settings for each input. Remember the front panel does not indicate the actual memory setting only what you last chose.

Shaun,


"Each input has it's own memory so you can't just make your picture adjustments on one input, you have to do it for each input. Once you have doen this it will autosave these settings for each input. "


Are the individual adjustments for each input still applied when the input selection is in 'Auto' mode? The manual was somewhat confusing on that point.


Thanks,


Shawn

Auto mode does not give you access to picture adjustments. Auto mode relys on factory default settings.

Shaun,

Right, but if you adjust the picture controls in manual mode for each input then those settings aren't used in 'Auto' mode?


Thanks,


Shawn
