    Hi,
    Whilst here i thought i'd make a pest of myself :).
    When my projector(seleco 400HT) is showing an anamorphic film i get a very faint light shadow??? to the right of the screen past the the screen black mask border, projecting onto the wall does anyone know what this is?
    The shadow is about 4-5inches wide & is as deep as the framing of the film.
    It does'nt really detract because you can only really see it on dark sequences.
    Anyone help???
    Tim.
    P.S when i phoned the people i bought the projector off i was told this was "light scatter" & is normal, it is a consequence of using plastic hybrid lenses.A set of glass lenses would sort it out, waddaya think??

    Is it only visible on anamorphic?

    If so is ther a difference with PAL and NTSC?

    The light scatter thing sounds like "bo......" to me. Is the light somehow intelligent and knows that it's special anamorphic light rather than letterbox light?


    I could be wrong though...

    If you know how, copy a convergence setting for NTSC letterbox to a new memory location then change it's aspect ratio to whatver name is free ( cinema, letterbox or whatever) Now, put on a NTSC anamorphic disc on and load that convergence setting. You shouldn't get the line at the side but the image will be the wrong aspect ratio. Reduce the vertical size till it's the right aspect ratio ( you should really do this with video essentials or AVIA). Save this setting.

    Now use the aspect ratio button to swap between the ortiginal setting and this new one. Do they both have the line you are talking about?

    If you don't know how to carry out this procedure then get whoever sold it to do it for you.

    There may be a valid reason for it but I'm not sure what it is.

    Please email me where youa re in the country. I'm coming South on Sunday and Monday and might be able to help.

    Gordon

    Hi Gordon,
    Just to clarify the line is not a "solid" line as, in say, the AKB line problem, it looks like reflective light, will try to do as you suggest but i only have a basic understanding of the projectors functions.
    I live in Essex with no dealer support only turds who want to rip you off :) unless someone knows different.
    I think i need to have an experienced "setter-up" come take a look .
    Thanks for the help BTW.
    cheers.
    Tim.
