Why am I selling it? The costs of college are gradually catching up with me, and my car is dying. Unfortunately, some things are gonna have to go, and it looks like my projector is one of them.

As for selling price, I don't know yet, I was kinda hoping the prices on eBay would go up again, so I could sell the panel for a good price. Right now, financially, it doesn't make sense to sell it for less than $350. $450 with the projector. A bit high, but quite small when you don't have any scholarships.

PS2 attached to panel using Svideo input.

Do you have a macrovision problem with the PS2 into your 822c? I sure did with my 822c and PS2 using S-video. It faded dark to light so much I ordered TV 3000 which should be here today.

Default PS2 & Macrovision

I didn't notice it on the PS2. But I did when I hooked up the panel to my standalone DVD player. It could have been the particular DVD. My panel didn't come with the vga cable so I had to order one. I'm hoping to get better results playing dvds on my computer and connecting the panel with the vga cable. I think this will resolve the macrovision problem too. Have you tried this?

Default Some Pics

Here are some pics. I finally got my digital camera to work in the dark. These are from a dreamcast plugged into the composite input. One complaint I have is that the upper half of the projected image is lighter than the lower half. I'm not sure if this is my panel in particular. Or if this is common with all Proximan Ovation 822C panels.

My 822 doesn't brighten the upper half. Are you sure that's just not the source material? A driving game is supposed to look like that.

Also, I finally watched your video of SPR. I didn't notice that problem. Looked great by the way.

Thanks, I think I got it on eBay a year or so ago.

The Z215 was one of the later Nview models. It is much better than those Spectra C models. And according to Macworld, it was the second best in displaying a photo and a quicktime movie.

Default More Results

Here is a clip from Star Wars Episode 1. This time I used a digital video camera. Then I converted the clip to mpeg1. It came out blurrier than actual because of the compression to mpg1. Also, I played the dvd on my computer and inputted through a vga cable to my panel. I would say the results are better than using the s-video input. But I'm still not satisfied. I think I am going to breakdown and buy a real home theater projector as soon as I can save up the money. I'm looking at either a Sanyo PLV-Z1 or a Panasonic PT-L200U. These are dedicated 16:9 format home theater projectors for about $1500 street price. Right click and save on this link
