    Hello.

    I have had my HS10 for a few weeks now, but can't seem to get a satisfactory picture from it. I have purchased a CC40R filter for it and an AVIA disc, but can't seem to get close to a 'good' picture. Most of my troubles are associated with colour balance. I can't seem to get this right, the picture never looks natural as it always has a colour bias. Please help me!!!!!

    What can I do to try and correct this? I have heard of a thing called SMART callibration, but I think this is quite expensive. Can any recommend a pro that could come to my house, but won't rip me off?

    I really do love the HS10, but this issue is stopping me from enjoying films, and I would like to get it sorted ASAP.

    All replies are gratefuly recieved.

    Cheers

    Rob

    BTW, I have read the detailed thread on AVS, and have changed the Bias and Gain settings. I have kept the origional settings so they can be restored.

    SMART is designed to get maximm contrast from the unit. It works on basis that the colour temeperature setting you use is correct in first place.....and they are not.

    I do ISF greyscale calibration of display devices and can help. In fact I can possibly come and do a SMART calibration combined with an ISF one for you. Email me at

    for details

    Hi Gordon

    Can you recommend a colour analyser suitable for LCD front projection? I'm looking around at the moment with a view to buying one and with a view to learning how to perform the D65 greyscale calibration.

    Cheers

    You can look at Progressive Labs, Sencore or Milori products.

    My preference is for first and last.
