The first thing you need to do is switch to component cables. It will give you the best image with the Z1. If the picture is "rather grainy", it sounds like you're sitting too close to screen. You should be sitting back about 2X the screen width(14' back from a screen 7' wide). Wavy lines sound like a ground loop problem. What do you have hooked up to projector?

Direct to dvd player, and when I hooked up to just a dvd player using my tv for speakers i got a bad hum from it......

I know I have to switch to component cables...but the grain was more from the wavy lines......

I never got the hum from my surround system in my theater but did from just the tv...used 2 different s vid cables too......

I have the screen at about 7 ft wide and stting 12 ft back...2 ft wont make that much difference....
