My new Panasonic LCD PJ will be here tomorrow. At the moment I do not have the funds for calibration. Thanks for asking!
I may have a neighbor that could use a pro to converge his Mitsubishi 57" RPTV. Seems Mits did not do a convergence on the 1080 from the factory and 2 years later when he finally got HD found a big surprise. He has been unable to find anyone locally competent to converge it correctly. Greg would tackling this be of interest to you?
What would you charge to do the convergence on 480i, 480p, and 1080i on his mit's if you are in town. I don't think he will want to do a full calibration. Now mind me this will not just beable to be done through the consumer menu, The geometry is way out.
the $400 is for the whole "shebang" (see www.lionav.com for a listing of services) and includes the gray scale calibration for the DVD scan rate. HD is usually a different gray scale, different color decoder work, and separate overscan, geometry, and convergence work. Add $150 for HD.
Kincade, would this be around the end of July? If so, count me in.
I do have a question for Gregg. I have a CRT front projector with good blue and red tubes. The green tube has a lot of wear though (fairly even). I actually do have a replacement brand new green tube. I'm wondering if I should have someone replace the green tube before you calibrate, or should I just stick with the green tube I have now (or maybe you could do the tube swap?).
