    OK, so I've had my ECP4101 for a while now, but I've never gotten around to hooking it up to my computer (been watching TV & DVD through a DVDO) and that works fine. But last night I decided I wanted to watch the Lord of the Rings trailer on my projector, so I plugged my laptop into the projector... and the convergance is way off. Almost like watching it in 3-d. What's up with that? It should be almost identical to the feed coming out of the DVDO, right?
    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    How are you connecting the devices to your projector? If you are using a different input on your projector for your laptop chances are it just hasn't been converged yet. Many displays have different color and convergence settings for each input. I can't think of any reason your computer could mess up convergence.

    I have an ECP 3100 hooked up to my PC and I can tell you that the convergence needs adjusting for every different refresh rate and resolution. Are you familiar with programming the muti-channel inputs in the ECP's menu, if not hit HELP and go to option 4 and follow the instructions. Once you have assinged another channel preset to the PC you can re-converge the PC without messing up your settings for the DVDO.
