Kal,

I realize this is irrelevant (for HT HD) except for the sake of accuracy but...Am I reading something wrong in regard to the stats for Barco's (Best/Worst chart), specifically the max bandwidth for the Graphics 808? Should it say 110Khz and not 75? Again, I realize either is more than required for HD use. I just stumbled across it and thought I'd ask.

You're confusing bandwidth with scanrate. Read it again.

Yup. Got it now. I'll blame it on late night reading. Embarassed The only reason I was into Barco territory in the first place is I've had a Graphics 808 in my garage in a crate for a year now and just cracked it open. The printed manual that came with it is for an 800, but the top cover says Graphics 808, so I was trying to verify what I actually have before connecting a source to it.
Thanks for straigthening me out.

I do that all the time (late night reading) but it usually involves a beer too so my conclusions are even worse. Wink

It should be pretty obvious which projector you have, shouldn't it? The 800 is an older projector - small, slim, old...



The 808 is a newer machine with a way nicer case style - ala Cine 8, or a small 909. Nice curve to it. Not to mention it's a way bigger, heaver, machine... A graphics 808 has scheimpflug, yes?



I didn't think the top covers on 808's ever had anything printed on them, though... so that does sound more like an 800.

Wait... Was that a typo? Did you mean you're not sure whether it's a data or graphics 800?
