Hi all I was looking into replacing the glycol in my red and green tubes or going the 144 lenses way to improve the colours. I have a computer background, so modding things is what I do on my htpc, now I want to extend it to my pj. This got me thinking of the best ways of modifying my projector until I can get enough money for one of the nine crts. So, here I am wanting to know what people have done to modify their projectors and what were the best and most cost effective modifications. Most likely a lot of people are waiting for the right time to upgrade, like myself, whilst I am waiting I also want to get the best out of my PJ. I know a lot of people may think that it would be simpler to just get a top end pj but for myself thats not possible at the moment, nor I assume for a lot of people. The things that I most want to improve is the colour, that modification for me would be either the glycol or hd 144 route. The other thing that interests me is the contrast ratio. This projector is quoted as having 20000 to 1, where as most nines are 30000 to 1. What I would like to know is can a 8 crt match this or is that sort of contrast ratio only the area of 9 crts like the 1209 and such. Any thoughts ideas would be great, happy modding.
