Finally moved into the new house and got my MT3 permanantly mounted. Although I have had this unit for 3 months I have only used it occasionally, positioned on an adjustable projector stand (ironing board) behind the sofa. Now it is inverted under a shelf approx 3/4 of the way up the rear wall (for compatibility with the low hanging chandelier the wife insisted on!!). For the first time I can start really trying to get the best from this projector. First impressions are generally good, although I am picking up some noise when using it with HTPC which needs investigation. I do have some questions for other owners and would appreciate any suggestions you can offer. 1. Do you find your MT3 noisey. I have worked hard to ensure my new HTPC was pretty quiet, only to find the projector much louder than the old pc ever was, and its right above my head. 2. I have fine vertical lines on my screen. I have read some solutions for other projectors that involves adjustments in hidden menus, are there any adjustments for the MT3? I read one post that suggested a pc is required for some adjustments, is this right? 3. When using it with the HTPC I get a clear and sharp picture apart from 4 or 5 vertical lines spaced evenly across the screen, where the pixels shimmer, causing text and images in those areas to blur. Any ideas? I assume the LCD panels in these are actually 800x600? 4. Silly question this one but, how do you find out remaining lamp life? For info, the PC is a celeron 1.3, TUSL2C mobo, radeon 7200 full version @ 800x600 75 hz, WinXP, Enermax PSU,WinTv PCI. Thanks in advance. Gav.
