    probably cause Hi end DLP are meant for monkey install and hence in a proper install you need no lens shift......... CRT have no zoom or variable throw!!!

    Hopefully this changes on the next batch of DLPs that are released. At least the H77 has vertical lens shift which is a positive step forward.

    The H57 has no lens shift, only H & V keystone correction which is never ideal but helpful nonetheless! It has a fairly large off set to (approx 35% of screen hight) which can make installing tricky if ceiling mounted, but the pq out weighs the hassle as you should only have to install once!!

    What does annoy me is why the H57 cannot be shelf mounted? I find that quite strange. Why is it? (OPTOMA FEEL FREE TO CLARIFY THIS AT ANY TIME!!)

    Well yes :rolleyes: I guess you could but it would look pants :blush:
    I did consider mounting a high level shelf and placing the pj on four anti-vibe rubber feet which I use to use on my cd player.

    I've settled on using a little key-stone instead. It takes nothing from the pq so its ok with me.

    Cool hand,

    Thanks for the PM. Out of interest, do you ever notice any dithering?

    Where the DLP image appears to drag/lag as the picture moves from left to right?

    Thanks.

    Cap :)

    PS, I think it may also be called 'clay face..'???

    No I've seen no dithering at all. Its all rather good!
    Personally I use a DVI - DVI for dvd from a 3910 and component for everything else and let the amp do the up-sampling/converting.
    The 5in1 of PacMan from FireBox looks sh**e but is great fun to play!!! :)
