no, the opposite. If you let the dvd player do the squish you don't get the tearing. If you set your dvd player to 16.9 ( i.e tall and thin ) and let the projector do the squish ( or the stretch in 16.9 mode ) you get the tearing. The pj will quite happily squish a 60hz signal from a htpc or dvd player. I think maybe nec tested the pj with 60hz stuff and just assumed everything would work with 50hz. Its a problem that maybe could be sorted with a firmware update.Originally posted by Gary Lightfoot
are you saying that the only way for PAL to be seen without tearing is to send the NEC a raw 4:3 image from the dvd player, and let the pj do the squeeze?
What are the limitations of this? Can you still move the squeezed image within the 4:3 are or is it fixed in the center?
Is a htpc a way round this at 60hz for all sources? What if the htpc does the squish and you send it to the pj in the position you want within the projected 4:3?
Hope there's a fix or you pj is faulty - this is the first one to make me want to upgrade and I'll be very dissapointed if it's no good for any PAL material.
