    SVT110 won't accept component video either interlaced or progressive :(

    The highest quality signal you can run into it will be RGB interlaced video as you seem to be running from the Pacific 1002.

    A few people have asked about the install manual for SVT110/150 projectors. I think someone posted a link as recently as 6 weeks ago. Try searching this forum for more info :)

    Regards

    Your best bet is to weigh up the quality of the RGB outputs on your players and choose the best one from them. Forget component. Forget progressive scan component. This projector just won't accept component of any sort. :)



    >>>John, I think the file you mentioned is no longer hosted on that web site. Can you repost it? There have been plenty of people asking for it recently.

    that will save a lot of time,any idea where ill get help on fine tuning the projecter,p.s how old do you think it is,is it any good and what would be the best screan size for a room 4mts by 4 mts allowing for the projector on a table,can`t put on the ceiling as it is a very old house and the Mrs would be peaved, does it mean the closer the pj is to the facing wall the better the picture.

    The manual will be a great help for convergence. You should also do a search in this forum for SVT150. This is the TV Tuner version of the model you own. In the course of the last five years there has been a lot of good info written detailing tips for convergence.

    How old - I covered this in my first reply to you. Have another read.

    SVT110 and 150s work best on 6ft wide or 7ft wide screens. (NB. width is from side to side. Diagonal is corner to corner). The distance from screen to projector is worked out by Screen Width x 1.5 So a 6ft screen needs a throw distance of 9ft. Horneydragon is correct - small picture = brighter picture. 6ft will look better than 7ft.

    110 & 150 projectors don't have the 16:9 mode for correctly displaying the extra resolution from anamorphic DVD . You can still play widescreen films, you just need to set your DVD player to '16:9 Letterbox' mode.

    John, I've got 2MB of webspace unused at the moment. I don't know if this is accessible to anyone else, so I posted a link and an image below. Let me know if you can access the file and see the image. If so, then I'll host part of the manual for others to down load. We can then swap to the other half.

    The age of the seleco can be seen on the first two digits of the serial number ie:- 92xxxxxx

    Another way to determine the age of almost anything electronic is to have a look at the chips inside the unit. The majority of them will have a 4 digit date code for when they were manufactured ie:- 9233, 9152, 9202, 9234, 9228 the first 2 digits is the year and the 2nd 2 digits are the week in that year. Most of the chips will have simular date codes on them and the production date will be arround the latest date code. In the example above it would be 9234 or end August '92.
