Themescene HD-80 configuration


Standard Member
Hi, I have recently purchased the HD80 - out of the box the picture appears to be fantastic. I would however hate to think I am not getting the best I possibly can out of the pj.

Is it ethical on the forums to share configurations?

P.S I have dedicated light controlled room 18 feet by 11 feet sitting 14 feet away from a 7ft screen. The projector is ceiling mounted also at 14ft it is being fed from a HD XE1 HDDVD and a PS3. Sky HD is also being installed tomorrow.

It would be far better to get a copy of DVE (Digital Video Essentials) to perform some basic calibration. Settings will vary between users due to the type of equipment used and their room.

An ISF calibration would ensure the absolute best settings for your equipment though. ;)

Other than sdb123s advice, you also could try sitting closer for a more immersive experience. Anywhere between 1 to 1.5 x screen width is closer to cinema seating distances and a 1080 pj should allow that unless you have better than average eyesight and screendoor becomes an issue.

One thing that I've found to improve the picture is image enhance, I changed mine from 0 to 1 and found the image to be alot sharper, apart from that the rest of the settings are pretty much standard.
