Well I've had the CRT for a few weeks now and I've watched a ton of films, an average of about 2 a day. I'm still playing with the colour gains, but I think its about as good as I can get it short of a Gordon style calibration. I always thought that CRT projectors were more forgiving of bad DVD transfers, maybe they are but crap DVDs still look crap even on a 9" CRT. It really does make you appreciate the good ones. The projector itself is settling in well, I don't hear so many creeks coming from the ceiling which is a very good thing since I'm sitting directly under the projector. I do have an issue with flare on the VDC green tube which Roland is organising a replacement for. The Red also seems to be not 100% but we shall see on that one. I also have a faint horizontal line going through the middle of the screen, a recalibration now that the projector has settled should take care of it hopefully. While solving the above will undoubtedly make the projector better, the picture I'm getting before Roland's second visit is pretty fab already with non of the horrible artifacts you get with LCD and DLP projectors. I've tweaked the last remaining hiccups out of my SDI/DScaler setup and now films films are silky smooth from the beginning to the end. Star Trek Insurrection pans are better than what I remember the Rock doing at last years Event which was already very good. Another big advantage of DScaler vs any of the software players is that video based material looks so much better, as a result I've started to look at some of the extras that come on DVD. The only issue I do have is that as the room and equipment at the back starts to over heat I get the odd bit of SDI noise, this happens after about 2 hours of viewing, not a big deal if you are just watching the one movie, but again a reminder to me that I need to extract heat out of the room some how. Last night I watched Bridget Jones Diary and Behind Enemy Lines, both movies looked great with no EE or noticeable compression artifacts. One thing I did notice is now that I've blocked out any remaining ambient light, the room becomes pitch black when a black screen is displayed. This happens between a couple of scenes in Toy Story 2, not sure the the children will make of it. I see a scream test coming up. I'll try to take a few photos this week and see what comes out. Please bare with me, my photographic skills are nonexistent.
