heres a pic of my setup... I modified the top of the overhead, and enlarged the whole to expose the whole fresnel. and Im just using a piece of glass to hold the lcd and the rest of the components on the other side, all I really did is remove the metal part that holds the panel in place and flip it open like a book, very easy.

yeah all your really have to do is take the plastic outer case off, then pry the little tabs open to get the metal from around the screen. of course you have to be really careful. and pull off the sticky aluminized paper shielding off the back. But I wouldn't say any of it was hard to do.. all of the components on the board stay in the same place, this makes the whole setup more stable, just unplug the CCFLs. just be careful when pulling the panel up, " when you open the book". I really cant think of an easier way to describe it than to say it iis like a book. hope that helps..

OK I think this is my last "?"

What is a CCFLs ? "just unplug the CCFLs"?

Also did you have to ground anything ? I know people useing the 1545v had to ground one spot.

Default Video Capture of Results

Click on this link http://home.hawaii.rr.com/microman/
There is a clip of my results of my setup from the movie Saving Private Ryan. For some reason I couldn't get my digital camera to take a good picture. The clip is also only 320*240 but it gives a good impression of brightness and contrast. The room was as dark as I could get it.

My setup:
LCD Panel - Ovation 822C -640*480, 2M Colors
Overhead Projector - Apollo Concept 2200 - 4000 Lumens
Screen - Dalite Matt White 70"x70"
PS2 attached to panel using Svideo input.

I don't have the VGA cable yet so I'm not sure if I'll get better results using a PC DVD player. I do notice that if I look closely I can see vertical scan lines. But it is not bad. Anyone notice a difference using Svideo vs PC Vga when watching DVD? Overall I'd say the picture is pretty decent.

Here are some pics of my Dukane 4000 / Nview Z215 / Da-lite 96x72 combo. I was thinking I'd have to sell my setup on ebay, so I took these pics the other day. Having just found out that my panel does 848x480 compressed, I am sad that it might have to go...

Also, I really think this is the best panel I've seen for playing console games on, even better than a Sharp qa-1750. It definetly blows the !@#% out of a Qa-1650! Sharp panels seem to have a brightness gradiation that goes from darker to lighter as you go up the panel, wheras this panel does not. This is even evident on the Qa-2500.
