On-going discussions about the Momitsu 880 prompted me to dig out my old V880 and see what it may be good for, in particular the ability to use 50Hz. I flashed firmware version 1.1.2a which appears to be the last one for the original model (having checked the serial number). Sadly, while 50Hz options now appear in the DVI settings selecting them still yields 60Hz. Also, selecting 576p outputs 1440x576p but with only blue! I know my projector, an H77, can handle 50Hz as it does so quite happily from the Pio 868, so it's obviously the V880 that isn't playing nice. Is there a trick needed, some 'secret' incantation (like the hidden menu) or does the firmware lie when it offers 50Hz?
