    I bought the X-1 a couple of months ago. It's all set up now. I ran Avia on it a couple of weeks ago. I could not get the sharpness pattern to look as they should, and the image in movies and on Xbox is not as sharp as I think it should be. There is no sharpness control for the progressive sources other than the ring on the projector. Is there something else I can do to make the image sharper? I built my own screen using some screen material I bought on eBay. Could that be a problem? I sit about 15 feet from the 80" screen if that makes a difference.

    Has noone else had a similar problem?

    I noticed that the X-1 system menus are very sharp while the projected image behind them is not. Is this significant?

    You may want to try a different hookup to see if you get the same results. Try using the component-to-s adapter and set your player for interlaced output. This setup will allow you to use the sharpness function on the X1 in the setup menu. If you can obtain the sharpness level you desire with this hookup then the problem probably lies with the progressive scan output on your DVD player.
