My beloved HD projector started exhibiting some issues, mostly during Blu-Ray playback over the HDMI port. Cruising some forums it seems that this huge purple line or white flash I sometimes see could be fixed by either firmware (not user upgradable) or a stuck dynamic Iris. My projector (PT-AX100U) uses a dynamic iris to increase the contrast significantly. My home theater and gaming depends on this device, I'm incredibly spoiled by always playing games on a 106" screen in a huge room in 5.1 so I'm not going to bother with any games until I get it back. This would be the 4th piece of technology I've broken in a very short period of time.
Movies at Damon's, which I know some readers are on the mailing list for, will resume when my projector comes back. 300 will most likely be the next title, as it is supposed to be stunning in HD. Anyone in the metro Milwaukee area who wants to be on the mailing list, leave or send me your address.
