That's interesting. I've found that if I turn on the DLP and let it sit with the flashing light for about
10 minutes, the DVI usually works when I turn on the lamp. However, even here it isn't consistent.
Perhaps it's a flaw in the machine itself which is why Optoma created the Movietime player with
the DVD built into the unit. However, I'm not ready to replace this machine. I'll upgrade it to
an Optoma high definition unit once the Samsung dual format (HD/Blu-Ray) is available. For the time
being I'm still projecting standard definition DVDs. In some cases they simulate the quality of
35mm release prints and the sound is better, primarily because I can adjust it for the screening room.
The problem with cinemas is that they really weren't designed for optimum accoustics, especially
since digital sound is relatively new and many theaters were built before it was introduced in
