Hey guys, thought I'd throw this out in case anyone else was interested. Mark and I are going to get together sometime in the next week or so and do some A/B tests and comparisons between his DLP and my CRT as well compare a DIY screen to a DaLite instatheater screen. I'm having some issues with various things in my theater and I'm trying to isolate some fixes. If anyone wants to join us just chime in. I'd be particularly interested in cajoling an L300U owner into bringing one over (Jeff, Chad, hint hint). Things I want to investigate: 1. Motion Blur. When watching movies on my system images do not pan smoothly. It almost looks like either the CRT or the HTPC cannot keep up with the speed of the pan. Weird thing is it does it even on slow pans. Solutions: If the HTPC is the problem I could get a Holo3D card or ditch the HTPC all together and go with a DVD player + scaler (probably a Lumagen). If the CRT is the problem then my only option would be to get a different projector, either another CRT or an FPD. Hence my curiosity about the Panasonic L300U and Sharp M20X. 2. Image isn't vivid enough. This could be one of three things: my calibration is off and needs to be fixed (I think my grayscale is messed up), I need a higher gain screen, or the CRT just can't put out enough light to satisfy me. Solutions: Build the DIY optical comparator we discussed elsewhere. Compare Mark's 2.2 gain screen to my DIY screen to see if bumps out the brightness enough to satisfy me. Ditch the CRT for a bright FPD projector.
