    I'm not sure where to post this question, so appologies if it needs moving!
    I'm in the process of having my Sim 2 (Seleco) SDG700 L6 CRT projector installed with Chris Frost. I'm using a Centerstage CS-2 video processor with an sdi input board, together with a Panasonic RP62 sdi dvd player. Upon setting up the projector Chris noticed that approximately 5% of the picture at the bottom of the image had been cropped off and was in fact missing.

    We switched to my Sony 7700 dvd player , which was hooked up to the CS-2 with a component video cable and the missing section of the image appeared.

    I'm running the projector at 720P & WXGA on a 16X9 Stewart screen

    Has anyone else experienced this problem when using an sdi source. Is there an explanation as to what's happening?

    Any ideas!!!

    I would guess that its the scaler doing this, does it equally crop NTSC and PAL DVDs?

    Yes it's the same for both Pal & NTSC.
    It's not a massive a problem, with a few tweaks of the scalers vertical position and size etc you wouldn't be any the wiser that there was a tiny portion of the image cropped. It's just one of those annoying problems that's more of an inconvienence.
    I must say the end result makes up for the extra tweaking.
    I'm not sure if the fault lies with the CS-2 SDI board or the SDI Panny player. It seems strange that when I use my Sony dvd player that the problem isn't there.
