    So what did you get in the quiz? Not sure if I should be proud of my "HT Adept" rating!

    I got a 'sage of HT, guru of all things AV' :p

    Even though I got the 5.1 question wrong, but I'm not convinced - surely you have 6 speakers in a 5.1setup?

    I agree. The subwoofer isn't optional if you're gonna have a 5.1 system. A system without a sub would be a 5.0 system.

    Hello:

    Thank you for posting this thread and for your comments, very flattering (I'm the keeper of the subject website :D )!

    I thought about the Dolby Digital 5.1 question on the quiz, and you are right, it is confusing. I've reworked it. Thanks for the help!

    In response to your request for the final settings (well final until I change something again) for the projector, here they are. I didn't list them on the website because each projector is a bit different, proper settings are very dependend on the signal source. I'd appreciate any comments as to whether these should be posted on the website. All settings are with an Optiflex CCR40 filter in place.

    PHP:
    Source Settings (Theater Tek DVD Player on Radeon HTPC)
    Bright:      40
    Contrast
    :    95
    Hue
    :          3
    Saturation
    130
    Gamma
    :      111
    Note
    These settings correspond to the overlay settings for the Radeon 7199 drivers
    PHP:
    Consumer Level Projector Settings (Sony VPL-CS1ROM ver 1.05)
    Bright:      1
    Contrast
    :   73
    Color Temp
    :  Low
    Gamma
    :   Graphics
    Current Lamp Timer
    :  972 Hrs
    PHP:
    Service and Factory Menu Settings (Low Color Temp)
    Red Gain:     90  (Factory set 64) (Range 0-255)
    Green Gain:   83  (Factory set 56) (Range 0-255)
    Blue Gain:    93  (Factory Set 62) (Range 0-255)
    Red Bias:    120 (Factory Set 128) (Range 0-255)
    Green Bias:  128 (Factory Set 148) (Range 0-255)
    Blue Bias:   127 (Factory Set 138) (Range 0-255)
    Panel Drive/Program Level:  130 (Factory Set 125)
    The panel drive/program level setting seems to control the bias voltage to the LCD panels. If you set this too low you get a "starfield" effect, with some of the LCD pixels dropping off and refusing to cooperate. They look like "dead" pixels. If you set this too high, you get an annoying vertical banding effect. I set this a bit higher, since LCD pixels "turn on" to block light and "make" black, the bit of additional bias will ensure they are as on as they can be. Not a big improvement here, very subtle.

    Thanks again!

    Welcome Chris!

    An excellent site, I think we'll all agree.

    Added to my favourites.

    Thanks for your input in the whole Home Cinema/HTPC/CRT/DLP/LCD/DTS/DD5.1/THXEX:( :( :(

    Man I need a drink:D
