    I have just got hold of this model, is it a good model and is it worth installing, as a first time home cimema user. I 'm after any good advice.
    It goes well but the blue tube has a little blur on it. I have only run it on the floor and want to project it from the ceiling.

    Welcome to AV Forums and the wonderful world of CRT.

    This Sony you have dates back to the early/mid 80's. I think it's a video only model - so using scalers/line doublers or progressive scan DVD players is out, but it should give a reasonable image with standard video sources if the tubes have some life left in them. THere's no 16:9 support either, but I did come across this site for a guy who thinks he's found a workaround.

    Use a VPH1030 manual as a guide for set-up and convergence.

    That blue tube softness could be down to Sony defocussing it. It's a common trick to get a little extra brightness from blue.

    You've aleady tried it table-top mounted to check everything works fine. If you are confident that the projector is OK then there's very little reason why you shouldn't go ahead. Have fun.

    Regards
