Wave Patterns on X1

327 Views 5 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Cyrano
Just watched Spiderman2 this time on the X1. I have a pretty simple

setup which consists of progressive scan DVD component out with a component to VGA to the X1 and a Dalite B screen.

Wierd..never seen this before and I'm sure this has nothing to do with the rainbow effects. Saw consistently what I can only describe as traveling wave patterns that moved left to right. Much more noticable on bright

white scenes.

Don't know if this is related, but I fooled with the sync threshold

since I was having syncing problems on some DVD's. I doubt this was the cause since I reset the settings back to the original setting.

Anybody seen this before? My current thoughts are power supply or heat or??? Thanks!

If it was moving left to right is the projector on a table? The X-1 vents out the front and if it is table mounted, with an airflow from left to right it may be heat waves, or this post may be the result of 6 beers?????
Its heatwaves. If they bug you enuff and your PJ is on a table you can put a dvd case standing on end between the lens and vents that will get rid of them. A dvd that come in a cardboard cover like Pirates, lion king or star gate standup easy.
We saw heatwaves when we were first using our X1 table-mounted. Then we ceiling mounted it. No more waves since then, July 2003.
Thanks... The X1 is actually ceiling mounted.

It's something I setup at my girls place so I'll

try some stuff to figure this thing out when I go back

tomorrow. Man did this thing annoy me throughout spider2.

Any suggestions?

Mine is ceiling mounted 6" down from the ceiling and a foot in front of the wall behind it. Do not mount PJ flush to ceiling as the lamp will not get enough airflow.

I can't imagine why yours has a problem.
