The way I see it we're about six months away from being able to buy SVGA DLP's on e-bay under a grand. The question now is, has anyone come close to creating an upgrade kit for these first generation DLPs?


What would be needed? A new 6 segment colour wheel and a firmware upgrade?


What happened to that generation of guys who'd refurb CRT's for us? Haven't they been able to move their enthusiasm to upconverting old DLP units?


I dying to move house and not take my ECP 4500 with me, just can't afford a good new DLP.

They can't be upgraded, but they can be modified. Do a search for 'Thumper'. Thumper modifies Plus OEM DLPs such as the Plus UP1100/NEC LT100/Proxima DX1 XGA and UP800/LT80 SVGA units.


He does a bunch of stuff to the colour wheel and to control light which makes them much better HT projectors.
