Topic:   Pincushion Effect

I am a relative neophyte to home theater and projectors. Recently I bought an Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2030 projector based on performance for value. Since I have had it, I have continued to do research which has lead me from an offset setup using keystone adjustments to a direct setup without keystone adjustments (I didn't know quality was affected at first). I have the projector on a table approximately 144" from the viewing surface, projecting a 120" screen. I'm happy with the set up overall, but I am getting a pincushion effect at the top of the screen (approximately 1/4" to 1/2"). My screen is of the pull down variety, so at first I thought it was that. But then I changed the projection setting from front to front/ceiling, and the pincushion effect changed to the bottom of the screen, so I am assuming it is the projector. I have tried lowering and raising, and moving forward and moving backward the projector to alleviate the issue to no avail. Is this an issue with the projector itself (I have read of others having this issue with this particular projector) or am I doing something wrong? I increased the image size to the point where the effect is no longer evident and the black boarder does a reasonable job of soaking up the overflow. However, I am a perfectionist and it is bugging me haha. I just want to know if there is anything I can do. If it is an issue with the particular brand of projector I can live with it. Otherwise, if any of you that are more experienced and much smarter than me with this stuff have any answers, they would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, guys.

Topic:   Zoom range limited

I purchased an Epson 2030. The unit has a restrictive zoom. I need a (ceiling) projector that will work 14' from my 84" built in screen. I like the 3 chip concept but they tell me at Epson I have to spend $2,000 more (5030UB) to get a 3 chip unit that will zoom down that far. Please give me some advice as this seems a little much for a zoom feature. Especially since the 720P I replaced it with has a wider zoom range.

Topic:   Epson 2030 - Rip Blu-Ray to USB Flash Drive and Watch

Does anyone know if you can rip a Blu-Ray to a USB Flash Drive and then watch the movie via the Projector (Epson 2030)? I know it can display photos, but I can't find any info on movies. If not...can I connect a Laptop? Thanks!

Topic:   Epson 2030 Projector Bluetooth Headache

Hey Guys, I just bought an Epson 2030 projector which works great. Clear, aspect perfect, quiet, fast. I have one problem though. Bluetooth & Wifi give me a headache. I know some people are susceptible and some are not but I'm one who is. I have a meter that detects Bluetooth & Wifi signal and have my entire house quiet from both but the projector is pegging the meter. I turn the projector off and the signal is gone. It's the projector. I've went through every menu on the projector and turned off WIFI but there is no Bluetooth off switch. I believe it's going to be the Bluetooth for the 3D glasses part of the projector. I'm so happy with everything about this projector but cannot use it because of the RF signal it's putting out. If there's no way to turn it off I'd be happy unsoldering the transmit antenna off the board if need be. I hope someone knows if it's Wifi or Bluetooth that is transmitting and how to turn it off. If I cannot turn it off I would have to sell it and buy a new projector that is not Wifi or Bluetooth capable. Help!!! Chris723

Topic:   Shooting screen at an angle

Hi all , new projector owner here! I am building a home theater room and the back of the room is limited space in front of projector so I have to place ceiling mount to the side about 3ft off center,if I placed in front of screen it would be less then 10 feet away and I couldn't stand up without blocking screen.I have the screen almost square but it still has a trapezoid look to it.I have played with the keystone option but I am wondering if it is more of a mounting issue . The projector is 12 feet back and 3 feet off center is it possible for me too shoot a square image using those numbers?
