Ok great...

LED Luminance = custom

Red = 66
Green = 65
Blue = 66

These settings are under systems set-up -> projection set-up..

Did some basic tweaking.. Sharing some pics..

Note : This is DIY Acoustic Transparent screen (matte ivory spandex stretched over matte black spandex).. Low Gain screen < 1.0 (0.7)..



Images captured thru Nikon Coolpix S8200 (Point & shoot)..

Some images are more brighter in the screen than in pictures..

















As per mr.ELANGO'S guidance i'm my own screen..
im using pre owned DELL 1060HD projector.
Thanks @elangoas

hi guys,

i have just bought this PJ in London (this is where i live), after reading this thread and review. I am using IKEA TUPPLUR GREY BLACK OUT roller blinds as my projection screen. It is 200Cm wide which give me approx 90" diagonal screen viewed from 8.5ft. Which is a very good viewing distance for my taste.

The PQ is good out of the box but i would like to make some tweaks to the actual picture. So far the only setting i have found is the LED Custom where i can change brightness and RGB values but cant change sharpness etc.

Earlier in the discussion in this thread on page 2 post #38 there is an image showing Picture Setting Menu. My issues i that i can not find this menu anywhere and it is not even mentioned in user manual or neither on any youtube videos etc.

So can anyone please help me find this menu? I would like to run a small calibration process using KNOWHOW Calibration disk.

Another problem i have is that my PJ is around 9ft away from the screen and it should be throwing approx 120" image but because my screen is smaller i had to use stepless zoom. This is a great feature and my setting is right now at 36 on this. however the down side is that the PJ still throws lights for the full 120" screen but the actual image is reduced for 90" screen, means i am getting grey surrounding which is very bothersome in the dark scenes.

Is there a way to hide this unwanted area?

Thanks

Kedar

Press & hold the menu key for few seconds and you should be able to get to that menu..

I have used the full optical zoom on my PJ and i too have this border on the AT screen, but it is very thin and not so intrusive.. Don't think it can be hidden..

hi Elangoas,

thanks so much for getting me going on this.

I have now done some basic calibration and the PQ is just awesome. Even though this is not a 4K PJ, i have played some 4K youtube samples at 1080p and the whole thing turned into a real cinema. I have also tested 3D glasses which came with it. the pictures are just popping out with lot of depth and almost no cross talk at all.

Thats great.. I too had done basic calibration using a calibration disc loaned from a FM and couldn't be more happier with H1..

Happy watching big screen..

right now I am stuck with my HTPC due to an upgrade. but will be posting usage of this new PJ along with Denon AVR-X2300W Dolby Atmos.
i am sure it will be like going to a multiplex or even better.

one thing sprung to my mind today about my question earlier about Stepless Zoom and illuminated dark sides.

I think when one uses Stepless Zoom to make the picture smaller for smaller screens, the actual lumens reduces. Because the projector is still projecting for the full screen however the stepless zoom is making the picture smaller.

Hope this make sense.
