    My Z3 just arrived today (im on nights :thumbsdow ). Anyhow I just wanted to know if anyone had any tips for its setup or tweaks out of the box. I will be connecting it via dvi/hdmi from a 6800gt via pc (running XP MCE with Purevideo & Powerstrip). I am making a diy 75" 16:9 screen that will sit above the Tv in the living room when we want a Movie Night. This will be painted with Icestorm 6. The PJ will run from a coffee table, the PC being close by.

    Do i need specific timings? I have a 2nd desktop setup via powerstrip running at 1280 x 720 @ 60hz - should this work?


    Any info appreciated, cheers

    1280x720 powerstip=yes. Get theatretek and ffdshow. Use ffdshow sharpen and blur/noisereduction for best results.
