  1. REW Forum
    If this is buried in there somewhere, I apologize. I'm in the middle of a labor-o-love gear rehab project where I need to do a number of S/N tests of electronics. The feature would be a dB ratio operational mode of the SPL meter or level meters where we could give it a reference tone, poke a...
  2. General Screen Discussion
    I have my projector mounted and playing and it seems I will have media in both 16:9 and 4:3. How do you determine the proper screen size to display both ratios correctly with out being too large or small on one? I would think that being off on the size would be distracting. Note: I am painting...

  4. General Screen Discussion
    Ok 16:9 or 2.35:1. Gonna watch mostly movies (like 80-90% of the time) a combination of blue ray and streaming, but some gaming and sports. I'm leaning to 16:9, seems would check the most boxes, but i wanted to hear your thoughts.
  5. Video Calibration
    What do you have your aspect ratio set to ? My Samsung has the 16:9 and a setting called just scan which displays the full native HD signal. My tv is set to 16:9.

    How concerned about contrast ratio should I really be? I read an article that manufactures don't truly know what the contrast ratio is and consumers should be more concerned about lumens than the contrast ratio. Would love to hear all of your thoughts ?

    Hello everyone, I would like to thank everyone for their input so far. You have all been so very helpful. I am about to drywall my theater room, I keep reading about the golden ratio for sound quality. I am at the point that I am ready for drywall. My question is do I have the right...

  9. System Setup and Connection
    Up till now, I’ve used a Denon AVR-1906 for home theater use. It was connected via a 15-foot component video cable to a Panasonic PT-AE900E projector and performed without any problems. If I wanted to watch movies from the 1940s and 1950s, I could adjust the aspect ratio via the Panasonic...

  13. Home Theater Projectors
    So my bulb died about a month ago at about 660 hours. Epson was nice enough to replace for free. after I replaced the bulb I re-hung the projector (shelf just below the ceiling) and for some reason I could not get it to match what it used to be set on. I have it mounted in the middle of the...
  14. DIY Screens
    Mech, Bill, Don,........... In your trials of testing all of these DIY mixes, from this forum and elsewhere, have you done any emmisive readings off the screen to check for contrast ratio? Can it be done with any accuracy with your Eye1Pro? I'm wondering if doing something like that would put...
  15. AV Home Theater
    Hi, all. I'm not sure this is the correct forum for this question, but it doesn't quite seem to fit in with the DVD review section either, so I chose here. I have a PS3 player and an Epson TW-2000 projector and have noticed that on certain standard DVDs ( Viva Las Vegas, 48 Hours, The Ref...
  16. Home Theater Projectors
    Hi Mark, and anyone else that can provide guidance. My question is about screen sizes but is anamorphic related so I am posting here rather than in the screen forum. I am making plans to get a scope screen and lens to go with my New JVC HD 750. With films being mainly 2.35 or 2.40 which ratio...
