    I was watching Ice Age yesterday and the wife was writing a letter at the table with a lamp on with a 60 watt bulb right next to the image. As you can see, the image was still very easy to view and I thought it may be of interest to people who are contemplating buying one.
    The room was actually much brighter than my digi camera is able to portray in the first pic.

    The other image is from the new Resident Evil movie and I just love the fine detail the relatively modest 4805's resolution can produce.

    This is a fine, fine projector. :smashin:

    The Resident Evil shot does look particularly good, very crisp with good skin tones.

    Hi Kinza,
    I'm running a fairly budget Panasonic DVD-S75 DVD player with NTSC progressive scan. I am actually running an interlaced signal though from the DVD player and letting the Infocus carry out the de-interlacing and progressive scanning. Connection is through a basic component cable. I find running an interlaced signal produces a much smoother brighter picture with much less noise.
    I am getting a DVI DVD player at the end of the month and will report on any improvements when I've got it.

    I've forgottn more than I know since going through the process of acquisition on my pj. I direct component feed from my DVD will be de-interlaced by the SP4805? When I my AVR1905 FINALLY arrives it will "upgrade" :rolleyes: all video inputs to component.

    What settings / input standards etc. do you recommend?

    :confused:

    Not quite sure how it can convert a composite signal into a high quality component output but then what would I know !!!...I'm sure of one thing, the quality won't be as good as a direct component feed from DVD player to pj.
    You will have to play around with the settings on your pj to find out what looks best to you.

    a few more shots from Star Wars AOTC. I know these have no real value, but I also know people like to look at them anyway.
    These are still without a screen onto a light cream wall. The wife doesn't want a screen on the wall so it's this until the weather warms up a bit then I'm converting my garage into a fully kitted out home cinema.
    Role on the summer !! :smashin:

    Oakley - My Hi-Fi dealer is coming to my house... YES you heard me, my house, on Saturday morning to demo the 4805 in my room. I am excited to say the least and even more so now.

    Out of interest, what are the dimensions of the image size you have in your 1st post and from what throw distance?

    It is approx. 80 inches across ( 6 1/2 foot) from about 13 foot back. The zoom is used slightly but I could get a bigger image still (about 7 foot)if the zoom was set to max.
