New to this site, so I hope someone can help me. I just had installed the Epson Powerlite Homecinema 1080p. I already had a curved, 4:3 ,100" diagonal screen that was installed some years ago. The installer told me that this projector would work best with a flat screen rather than a curved one. Is this true? Are there anysettings that would adjust for the fact that the screen is curved?
Also, how can I change the aspect ratio to 4:3. Is this done through the settings menu?
Does this projector have a keystone correction?
First, does using the HQV processor yield a 1080P pix on the 810 projector even though the projector isn't rated at 1080P?
Second, you gave the 810 HQV a score of 125 and an excellent rating, but the 1080P got a score of 85 and failed most all of the film detail tests. Does this mean that, although the 810 HQV can't display 1080P it delivers a far superior picture compared to the 1080P?
Conversely, although the 1080P can display 1080P natively, it's picture quality is far worse than the 810 HQV combo?
I'm new at this so please excuse how dumb it may sound!
I figure he meant the 810 but i guess i want to be sure!
