    Hi there I just got a barco 808 graphics and am just doing the basic setup.
    I got to the point of focusing lenses, easy enough. Then in the manual it say find the raster and move it into center of crt, put brightness way up and contrast down, but for the life of me I cant see a raster!. I have experimented a lot what is it I am looking for? I assumed it was a darker rectangle in the crt border but I dont know. :confused:

    Find a black bit of video and pause it. ( end of a film is usually best)
    turn the brightness and contrast right down.
    Now put your nose up against the tube (green probably best)
    Turn contrast up to 10.
    turn the brightness up and you will see the video picture come up first.
    Keep turning the brightness up and the bit outside the video image is the raster.
