Casey is the Gun when it comes to Barco ASTIG. He has spent more time learning about these than most have spent watching movies. I think from memory he put together a procedure and posted it on here. I would say that the same procedure he uses for the Cine 9 would work well with the Cine 8. You can spend a full day on one tube alone to get the best corner to corner focus.
Thanks for your kind words my friend
Barcos really need their astig set well to get the best from everything, and it takes time with a lot of back and forward between settings to find the perfect spot.
The main thing is dont aim for round dots anywhere other than the middle, aim for best sharpness in both horizontal and vertical. As you go over and under focus, dots further towards the edges will change shape and flair.

You need to move the focus yoke to get best centre focus, set to 57-60 and then move the yoke til it is perfect. If centre is down on 37, you will probably never get sides perfect without extreme numbers.
Yeah I can post it when I get back for the weekend, I'm out of town on assignment till friday. It's Onyx firmware, at least the label said so, but I doubt there's any difference, it also just says Cine 8 as the projector type while booting.
Im not sure there was any difference in capability between the Cine 8 and the ONYX, as far as i know it is just the LC that makes it different.
Might be worth looking at what the Zenith version has on it, that was basically an identical set, but how different the software would be i dont know, they may have only changed the brand logo and ID screen details.
Thanks for the tip Barclay, I will have to try that, I think the connectors should reach easily.
Case, the CPC has the painting on it, so it should not have moved during transit. Now that you mention the word astigmatism though, I will have to check the electronic astig, I don't remember seeing it at all in the menus, and I did do a full reset after it was mounted.
My other LC 808 should be arriving today evening, so I will soon have the chance to compare the colours on a HD-117-24 with the modded Onyx
On a slightly different note, is there a surefire method to set the projector perfectly perpendicular to the screen? I suspect I didn't manage to do that perfectly despite measuring all four corners of the PJ to the screen with string (string's slightly stretchy, no matter how much you're trying to watch out for it).
Youre missing the point.
If it is good enough for me to re-do astig after moving from bench to ceiling or one room to another, it is good enough for you to look into it after it moved geographical locations.
The terrestrial magnetic field is what will be the effect on astig, painted or not.
Admin: I have uploaded a copy of the SM to the digital projector section.

Admin: This was already addressed and there is a thread on it in the service manual section. If a link is not currently working all you have to do is ask. Data is all still there. One drive changed the linking process.
