At first I rejected the notion that you needed any better picture quality than the component input provides on the AE100, but after living with it for 2 months now, and becoming less and less impressed, I have sprung for the AA transcoder.


I am really, really starting to notice the scaling artifacts and aliasing through the component input. The jaggies in Star Trek:Insurrection drove me insane as I watched it tonight. I am also hoping for a bit better defined and less murky picture, overall. I will report back soon on my findings.



Now if there was only a way to cure this distracting vertical banding issue.....



Cheers

Try a Hoya FLD filter to help with the banding.

You never know, using the VGA port in WIDE mode you may see an improvement or decrease of banding. You can only hope :)

Where might I purchase one of the Hoya filters? Would it mount directly to the PJ lens, or would it be kind of a DIY project?


Indeed I hope that changing inputs decreases the banding. The banding is my biggest issue with this projector- black level and screen door are minor in comparison. Many things are IMO rendered unwatchable by the vertical banding. It seems to affect the blue panel the most- ruining any outdoor scenes against a blue sky background.

I ordered on from here: www.bhphotovideo.com


The Hoya Multicoated (HMC) FL-D filter 52mm is the one you want. It is fits inside the lens of the AE100 but doesn't screw into the threads.


It's a $20~ trial so you don't have much to lose. I like the filter because it cuts out a layer of video noise that I'm seeing on my AE100, but it does also reduce the banding.

I can definitely second the FL-D recommendation for helping vertical banding and for that matter black level.

Well, just ordered my FL-D filter for $16.50 from Warehouse Photographic, Inc.


Hope it arrives soon and helps with the vertical banding as you say.


JPinTO-


since our setups are going to be very similar, could you e-mail me a listing of your exact setup parameters for best picture quality? I am not familiar with the controls I will be using to tweak the RGB input- any help would be appreciated-


Thanks


Andrew
