Oh yea, nice TV too
Moved to DLP TV forum .
What are you feeding it? Can you say how it looks with DVD and (v importantly) Sky+
Nice telly,can you take a picture off the tv in cation.
With the dvd onn.
I have had an RD65 for a few weeks now, after viewing the set at Optoma offices in Watford and at the AV show in Hammersmith, I was very impressed with the finish of the case, the overall size and quality of the picture.
However I'm afraid to say that although the pictures via a PAL source are indeed good, the set is not NTSC compatible. The picture jerks slightly when feed a NTSC source (Region 1 DVD).
I have tried 3 DVD players, through all manor of different inputs.
So I then decided to contact Optoma about this problem which at the time they say they were not aware of. Their advertising at the time had NTSC compatible on the net and Boucher.
They have since changed their advertising to not NTSC compatible and have told me there this no way around this problem. Unless I can find a DVD player or external box which can convert NTSC to PAL and outputs a PAL feed the problem will remain.
As you can guess I am far from happy with this situation. I have become accustomed to the good quality pictures from the PAL source and would love to view my Region 1 (NTSC) collection with equal quality.
I am also confused as to how this problem can not be solved, as Optoma has a H77 DLP HD2+ projector which does not display this problem. Nor do other manufacturers as my father has an Infocus 7205 DLP HD2+, which displays NTSC signal with no problems. Does Optoma expect its customers who are mainly enthusiasts only to have region 2 DVDs in their collection.
I have had many phone calls to Optoma and sent a lengthy letter on the subject but still they are adamant that the RD65 can not display NTSC pictures via tweeking of the software or an external device. I now feel Optoma have a white elephant on their hands if this problem is not resolved.
Are there any RD65 owners who have overcome this problem? Or does any one know of a device or DVD player which will convert a NTSC signal to PAL?
Your help would be much appreciated.
some pioneer dvd owners claim they can virtually eliminate NTSC judder by setting the dvd to output 50hz NTSC. I Haven't tried it myself yet, but I soon will as I have one!
I have tried the Pioneer 868 through all manor of inputs and no change. I need 50 Hz Pal, for the problem to disapear.
I read on a different post on this forum that somone used a 575 pioneer dvd player which outputs pal50 i think which improved the judder alot so you could hardly see it as any body else tried this dvd player with the optoma
Could you send the link with the info please ric.
the information is on post 39 on jerky rd 50 there is a few posts about it
