i NOTICED THAT ALSO. mAYBE i JUST GOT TOO EXCITED.

tHE LONGER I WATCHED THE MORE DISTRACTED I AM BECAUSE THERE IS A LOT OF STRAY LIGHT HITTING THE SCREEN AND DISTRACTED ALSO BY THE BRIGHT BLACK BARS. ITS ALSO VERY TIRING TO THE EYES.

CAN'T REALLY MAKE FULL EVALUATION IN A FEW HOURS. I HAVE TO RETURN IT TOMORROW.

I AM NOW WATCHING ON MY PJ, AND THIS HONESTLY I CAN TELL YOU. I AM MORE RELAXED BECAUSE BRIGHTNESS ON MY PJ IS JUST ENOUGH TO WATCH COMFORTABLY. SHARPNESS AND COLORS OF MY PJ IS MORE THAN I WISH FOR CONSIDERING A $500 BUDGET

YOU CAN BUY USED OVERHEAD PROJECTOR AT HMR. BUT FRESNEL LENS IS MOST LIKELY WARPED OR ALREADY WORN-OUT

I HAVE ORDERED VARIFOCAL 4 PCS PROJECTION LENS FROM TONY
I HAVE AN EXTRA FRESNEL AND CONDENSER LENS

FOR THE LIGHT ENGINE, MAYBE YOU WANT TO BUY MY OSRAM 250W/NDL.

FOR THE LCD, I HAVE SOURCED IT IN TAIWAN. I HAVE CONTACT ALREADY BUT THE MINIMUM ORDER IS 10 PCS. WE HAVE TO HAVE A GROUP BUY HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES.

IF YOU WANT THE LILIPUT LCD, I HAVE ALREADY TALK TO THEM. MINIMUM ORDER IS 50PCS AT $180 FOB CHINA

WE CAN BUY 10 PCS BUT THE PRICE WILL BE $222 FOB CHINA

Thanks for the information.

I would love to build a PJ someday, I'm a little tight on the budget these days.

Here is my email warren_ph@hotmail.com I would like to hear more about your PJ for future reference.

Thanks

My soup laddle reflector is turning yellowish.
Can anybody tell if chrome plating my soup laddle will not turn yellow due to high temperature?

Anybody's opinion will be appreciated.

Probably because it's Stainless steel. And your bulb is getting it too hot for too long. Gives it a tarnish or patina'd kind of look.

Get a proper spherical reflector, and work on improving your airflow. I think if you were moving enough air through your light box, then the ladle wouldn't have gotten crispified like that. My stainless steel chili ladle I use when I go camping is all yellowed from the heat it's subjected too. There's pretty much no gettin rid of it once it's there.

i actually like your diy projector better than the dlp..it's warmer..the colors look "richer" to me.. that is just my opinion..
and the brightness to me doesn't necessarily mean better as well- i wouldn't watch my projector with the lights on anyhow..

your projector is maganda!

THANKS FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS AND I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT. I BORE SO MANY SMALL HOLES IN MY PREVIOUS CABINET BEFORE NEAR THE LIGHT ENGINE SO THAT AIR IS COMING FROM BELOW GOING UP TO THE BACKSIDE THUS COOLING THE LIGHT ENGINE.

I BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED WHEN I CHANGED MY CABINET BECAUSE I DIDN'T NOTICED THE YELLOWING OF MY REFLECTOR BEFORE. NOW BELIEVE ME, AFTER POLISHING THE REFLECTOR IT TURNED YELLOW IN LESS THAN AN HOUR.

THANKS AGAIN. GOTTA BORE SOME HOLES NOW. I WILL KEEP YOU INFORMED.

Anybody who has experience on chrome plating of reflector? I laways thought that i can still get significant brightness increase because i am using right now the cheapest soup ladle available in the store here. It is not a shiny as the most expensive one.

Any thoughts will be deeply appreciated.

I called up osram-phils and verify if my hqi-ts/ndl has uv filter and they said yes, even though it is not written in the box. well it feels good to hear that. maybe i just need an ir filter now.

Is there a way to determine if a projections lens is triplet or not. i bought mine at hmr which i don't know whether its triplet or not. It is a gilkson brand but i can't find it in the web.

My projection lens looks to be the same as the one being sold by lumenlab and diylabs.

I luv Leelo!!!
